    My original breeding flock came through their first molt beautifully! They all have more white now than they did before. It makes me wonder about some of the pics we have seen of Pita Pinta with lots of white. Perhaps some of them are pics of birds who have been through a molt or two.

    Here are some pics of my hens and pullets. The birds with yellow zip ties are the F1 pullets.

    [​IMG] This girl is still growing in the feathers on her neck but she has so much white now.

    [​IMG] Notice how white the hen in the background is! Even Zorro has more white after his molt.

    My breeding trio is turning very white too after molding.

    They are so nice looking!
