I was just looking at my little baby chickies and checking their ever growing wing feathers. I picked up one of my hubby's darling little La Fleche babies, stretched out her wing, and realized she has clear stripes on the feathers. I mean really clear...you can see anything through it. It is in just a few little stripes but totally clear...not even a hint of opacity. And no, they aren't bare, there really are feathers there. I tried to get a pic but couldn't get it to show...will try again later. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this??????
