    I can't tell you about showing but my Ameraucana cockerel has that and it's because a tail feather or two is missing from when he flew up into the sticky flytrap, LOL. It's just the under-down showing through where there isn't a feather, probably.

    My Roo has that too. But he is a RIR. Makes me feel better to know it isn't nothing dangerous.
