So, a few weeks ago, I posted about my "color-changing" chicken but I never posted pictures. That's what this post is about! Anyways, my 3yr old Easter Egger hen Quail is turning white and black. She has been khaki/tan for the past 3 years and now all of the sudden... she's changing. No, it didn't happen overnight. For the past couple weeks, I've noticed, every day she grows in more and more white and black feathers. I'm guessing there must be some Speckled Sussex in her genes..

AND NOW... the pics (there's a lot, sorry)

Here is Quail about two years ago with the coloring she originally had:


And here she is now:











Thought I'd share this with you all!

Wow! I had no idea that was possible! White spots keep popping up on my head, but didn't think a hen could do that

Interesting.
Makes me think of Calico Reticulated Pythons. They start off fairly normal and get more white as they age (much like I am. Hmmm, maybe I'm a calico not old after all. Nah, I think I'm just old. *sigh*)

She is a pretty girl.
