    Well this little chick, Nellie, was solid black when she came a week and a half ago. Well she did have a little white feathering in her bowtie and a bit on her face. This morning she was in the sunlight and I noticed some red coming in on her wings. The first pic is of here at one week old, the next two are ones I took today at 1.5 weeks with the red coming in on her. Any ideas of what I can expect her to feather out into as an adult? Really hoping this doesn't mean she could be a he! I ordered only pullets, but we all now how that can go awry sometimes. Fingers crossed.

    Here is Nellie and her friend Nala...she does have some white on her breast and that white spot on her face.

    Here is a pic of her wing, sorry for the pic quality...it was with my phone.

    And here is the last one of her whole body...see the reddish brown on her wings?

    I think the yellowish colored one is a Buff Naked Neck.
