Does this look like mottled chick down for all of you that are familiar with raising mottles. Thanks
Yup, looks like it to me. very cute!
Just hatched out some mottled D'Uccles, and that's what the coloring looks like. Very cute!
Whatever it is, it's adorable
WEll I am ecstatic cause that means I have the mottled gene in my Bama's. Next year should have me making good progress in type and size with mottled pattern. I have a exhibition size hen with the Bama mottling gene in with the cochin. Makes me excited about the next hatch. Whooo hoooo
Yes...but that is also what the blacks look like as chicks too.
I haven't had a black with that much white. Although I had some in the last batch that had a good amount of white, they really surprised me.
ETA: I looked back at some pics and did have some with a lot of white, it actually made them look almost blue. But they aren't.
The white on black chicks is usually more focused around the eyes and chest and doesn't go back as far on the head. I also noted a bit of a head spot on my mottled chicks Julie. I think I see that on yours in the pic too. That's looks like a pretty good sign to me.
