Light patch of feathers on my Bronze? Not white, just lighter?

    Anybody have any idea why my bronze hen would have this one little patch of lighter feathers? They are definitely not white and she has no white feathers that I've seen. These are more like a tan or cream color. Just curious if anyone has seen this in bronzes before?

    Interesting. I'd just wait to see. How old is the hen?

    She's about 4 &1/2 months now. If it changes at all I'll post more pics, just thought maybe it might be something common on Bronzes.

    The young hens I've had never showed any of that colouring, but who know whether it'll developed into anything :confused:

    She's not going anywhere so we'll just watch it and see. Thanks for the input!
