    Is this boy mottled? I thought that he was but I don’t know... if so, does white start to show up later on? Vinny as a baby and him now at 10 weeks old... 2DC8F7F3-2BAF-40DF-9341-A057F029E2D9.jpeg 385ABA7E-37F8-405C-8B50-28FF3C680EC3.jpeg 8B88030D-CD34-45DA-853F-1CCED7642631.jpeg 8DA0460A-53D0-48DE-B610-30D306730AD7.jpeg

    He does have some white on the feathers on his feet :confused:
    I hope he’s not just black :rolleyes:.. I was hoping for some color/spice ;)
    Thanks!

    Blue! Not mottled just white leakage, common from hatchery stock

    Definitely blue and those dark blues are the Best in my BLRW :thumbsup
