Leghorn with dark feather?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I may be interested in nothing here, but I got 6 assorted layer pullets.  Two were cute yellow little fluff balls.  I assumed they were leghorns.  One of the chicks always had what looked like a dark, super tiny smudge on the top of it's head with maybe a little hint on the neck.  Very small amounts, I didn't think it was a big deal.  Today I noticed one has gotten a dark feather on it's leg.  Is this normal for leghorns, or could this be a different type of chick?

It sounds like a california white.  A cross between a california grey and white leghorn.

Thanks for the suggestions!  Just from looking over pics I found on google it looks like she could be a tetra tint!  Thanks for the help!
