I have a question about my BCM young rooster (7 months). We just had several severe freezes and he seems to have developed several white feather episodes. Since I am a newbie about chickens/Marans (I have alot of younger ones that I will need to cull for quality), I need to learn about feather color/issues. Can anyone tell me if the white feathers are from the freezes or something that will stay with him? thanks in advance.... Also, since he couldn't bother to stand up to have his picture taken, can someone tell me if he seems to be a decent candidate for breeding?
