    At what age does the blue show on the Mosaics faces? I think I have two but there is no blue on their faces so not sure that they are Mosaics. I think they are between 12-15 weeks. I’m new here so not sure if I posted this in the right place so please forgive me as I learn the ropes! Thanks Michelle :)

    Pics would surely help.
    They should be showing blue by that age but many mosaics don't show blue but show normal red.

    Here are the two Mosaics I think I have. My husband got them for me and couldn’t remember what they were called. They were the only two like them..of course it’s too late to put them with the flock so they are inside in a huge rubber made tote. I let them out to run around for exercise and boy are they funny! Their antics are just crazy!

    I have some Mosaic and the feather patterns are similar to yours. A few things to note that I noticed..... Your chicks have feathered feet, they're a stronger "maize" color on the feet as well.

    My Mosaics have both grey or olive colored feet. No feathers on the feet either. Try moving their feathers to a side anywhere and check their skin color. Mine have a nice navy blue color (Denim like)

    Those are light Brahmas. Have you Googled Mosaic chickens? Mosaics don't have feathered feet or that feather pattern.
