    This is my first time having sumatras so i have afew questions. 1/ Does anyone know anything about the Mcmurry bloodline? And 2/ Mine are only about 5 weeks old and i've noticed white tips on their wings, does that go away with age?

    When we got our sumatra chicks, they had quite a bit of white on therm, but as they grew, they all changed to that nice shiny black. So I wouldn't worry about it!
