    Columbia, one of our two Buff Brahma pullet chicks is fledging out a bit faster than the other one, and what we can see of the patterning seems a little off... granted, this is the first time we have raised chicks with their coloring and patterning, but compared to the other chick, and our older roo Rocky, this ones seems a little different... the wing and tail feathers are kinda speckly rather than having solid buff and black sections like the other two, and her neck and back feathers that have come in have black spots on them... is this normal, or is she an odd ball?...

    She's fine. She'll change lots as she grows up.

    This pullet is ok and after the Juve molt you can check for the proper color, after about five months.
