Today I was watching our two week old Silver Amerucana and Speckle Sussex. They where preening themselves and I notice white speckles flying out when they shook themselves. I picked up a speckle and it looks like dandruff.
Is it dandruff and is it normal?

It's the sheathing from the new feathers growing in.
It can be kind of iridescent and waxy feeling.
Here's a pic.
