    Is that normal? When I showed new hatched pictures of the chick many of you who posted said that it looked simliar to your birds that ended up feathering out pure black. However I just noticed yesterday and it's even more apparant today that the lil cutie has pure white wing feathers coming in...is this normal? Will it molt out ot pure black OR is it a mystery color? LOL

    This is what I looked like at hatching:

    I understood everyone saying that theirs that looked like this turned out black, however now seeing pure white feathers...im pretty puzzled lol! Thanks for any help! [​IMG]
