are turning black. is this normal?
I noticed that on my buff rocks too, my husband think's that's a throw back in there breading!!! (to what i don't know) did you get your's from mcmurry's?
there Bos from cackle. I am was going to sell al but one cuz she looked like a quilty bird but she started get black spots on her tail feathers
My little buff is getting black spot on her tail too ... Does this mean she is not a "full Breed " ?
My BOs have peppering in their tails too. I think it is fairly common from what I've read.
Quote:Yes, it is common with Buff Orps to have a mottled dark coloring in their tail feathers. It sorta looks like speckles of mold sometimes.
But it is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about, breeding or otherwise.
If I do keep one can she still be shown
Hmmm interesting, I havent noticed any dark spots on my BO roo yet, but am glad to know its nothing to fret about if it shows up
i have noticed this as well.... only it's on just one of the pulletts. her tail feathers are a bit longer than the others and she's the only one that has it.
she's always been one of my favorites.... even before that.
