    Just found a curious Serama chick in my brooder. I hatched it last week. Just found it interesting to have 2 different color wings. I will post here as it develops.

    Any insight into the genetics of these? I know they happen every now and then, and sometimes are different sexes on each half. Time will tell!

    I'm pretty excited! The brown on the white wing is just poo... Otherwise they're different. No body feathers to speak of yet. The chick is just over a week. The next 10 days should reveal a lot!
