    Foulman....she looks JUST like my yearling that I hatched from one of your eggs last spring. Very light color tan on all the feathers. She looks completely different than my other 3 yearlings.

    All of mine seem to be lighter but patchy than normal and this one is more smoothly colored. maybe with some careful breeding I can get to a full white? My Beta male was breeding with my female after I let the alpha set That is where your eggs came from the last few she laid. Some from one male some from the other. So is it a trait carried by the female or the male.
