I've had a few wheatens hatch with a dot on the head. My best BW ever had an actual " ! " on hers. We just hatched some BW Am x Wheaten Marans chicks. I was expecting to have solid yellow chicks and was worried about mixing them up with the BWs, but all of the OEs have stripes of varying degrees. Have to agree with Jean. My wheaten flock is closed now. I'd rather work on my own issues than be surprised with anybody else's anymore.
