    Plan on getting some chukar eggs off eBay sometime this spring but have noticed something. Some people label their chukar eggs "white chukar eggs" and others will label them "albino chukar eggs" is there a difference between the "white" and "albino" chukar color mutations? Also seen some labeled "silver" don't know if it was me but it did kinda seem like a different color mutation compared to the white or albino, but then again I'm not really sure? Is there a silver color mutation in chukars too?

    As far as I know white and Albino are one and the same, look at wood ducks , Mandarins etc and you will see them most often listed as white and they are albino's . I've never seen a silver but from pictures they look interesting.
