    Well in that case they all should have got a barring gene from mom . So a case of who is momma or a genetic mutation . I once got a crested chick from lavender Ameraucana .

    Wow start a breed of crested lavender Ameraucana's!!

    Bert Jr was the only one that was not barred. matter of fact all the boys with the exception of Bert Jr had a white dot on their heads. I thought I had stumbled on a sex linked meat bird, until Bert Jr popped out of his shell.

    All the girls where all white with just a tad and I mean tad of orange.

    It is rare but sometimes you will get birds with crests because the chick doesn't fully develop the skull on top.

    Its the truth!! Ducks have it too. And if you hit them on the back of the head lightly it can kill them.
