Below: Photos of some of our chicks from two clutches hatched December 2003. Of the eight chicks shown below, five are visual Opalines, three are split to Opaline.
We were delighted with a variety of beautiful colors, including a Green Pied Opaline hen with incredible fluorescent-like coloring.
March 2004 - Fledglings From left to right - Seagreen Opaline, Whitefaced Blue Opaline, Whitefaced Violet Opaline, Medium Green Violet Opaline & Green Pied Opaline.
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.
