    This boy was hatched here at the farm on May 19th. As he has been loosing his baby feathers - he has become quite unique to me and I am thinking he is a barred blue - but not sure what the exact coloring would be. Any ideas? His mom is white with minimal black and I am assuming his dad is my Blue and White pied - LOL!

    I have no idea, but it will be easier to tell once all the feathers are in. Then, if that is his first molt, he is getting his juvenile feathers and will do it again very soon and get another set of adult feathers. He may change colors between now and then.
