Salmon Faverolle Chick BLUE Lacing?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I have two salmon faverolle chicks among my small flock of 8. They are 5 weeks old. One of them is very slow in feather development, the other is very fast. April, the fast one, has almost ALL of her feathers. Last night when I checked on them, she was showing signs of feather development on her head. This morning, her head is almost completely feathered. Crazy how they grow so fast! 

 

Anyways, today I was spending time with them outdoors and I noticed April has what appears to be blue lacing on her tail feathers. I didn't think salmon faverolles had blue lacing (or any lacing?) so I wanted to ask here. April is from a hatchery, so she should be purebred. I was so surprised when I saw it that I had to ask if this is normal or not.

 

I can get pictures if they are needed.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

Is this normal on a salmon faverolle?

She looks normal to me. A lot of hatchery quality Faverolles have strange coloring.

x2. Plus she is still in juvenile plumage. The odd feathering may not persist into adulthood.

Ok thanks. It didn't really matter to me either way. Just thought I'd ask. I actually think it looks kind of cool.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Good morning! I know this thread is old, but I was curious about what your girl grew up to look like! I have two who are almost 4 weeks who really resemble yours. I am anxious to see what they look like when they grow up!
