Pictured above:  Shasta, a young, Medium Seagreen Violet Opaline, guaranteed split to Lutino.

He is showing the distinctive Opaline hood at an early age.

If bred to even a normal colored hen, he will produce all visual Opaline daughters (some of which will be Lutino Opaline!), and all of the sons produced will be split to Opaline.

 The 2nd & 3rd photos show him during his first molt at 4+ months of age, late February 2004.

He actually has a darker, blue-green cast to his feathers that does not show as well in photographs.

 Molting his baby gray hood feathers, his hood is emerging as a rich, cream color with a pale, peach-colored tint adorned by an apricot-colored crown.
