Is it normal or ok for a Blue Silkie to have a white barring? Seems mostly present on the wings, near the tips. Does that mean anything? I just seem to always see other peoples Blue silkies and they are just that... blue... sometimes with a touch of blue so blue its black but this is obviously a striping effect.

Its not a very good one but Ill try and see if you can see it. If not I will wait until she dries and take another picture. (I gave her a bath today to help with the heat)

It just hasn't grown out all the baby fuzz and feathers yet. Wait until it has it's adult feathers and it should be one even tone of blue.

Well At least I know that if she does get the barring then it would be normal LOL. By the way since Im thinking about it would you call this buff or a light partridge? This one seems to have a bit of a darker colour in the wings but I have seen people say the buffs almost look white. Unless she is a darker buff and those spots will go away...? Should I just be patient on this one too?
