Interesting mate and think you right that they are all forms of mutation, I have had one or two with frills over the years and some with tufts on their heads. Our club Secretary had Jan ardens years ago that threw the odd one with tufts, he always reckoned they were the breeders.

These irregularities are caused as said by a mutation of a gene. This gene will be a recessive gene and not dominant. It could show up in the offspring at any point, but rarely. If 2 birds with the same recessive gene were paired together and both passed this gene onto any of their offspring it would then become a dominant gene and show up more regularly.
This is my understanding of genetics anyway. 😀😀

That youngster, and two others a few days younger, are doing very well.

I had the baths out yesterday, and they followed the others over and learned to have a bath.

When I called the others in they all ran in the door for their tea! It's good that they know how to go in and out and come on the call before they get on the wing.
Regards,

Murray

Just put some carrots, celery and kale in the blender for the birds. Put a couple of bowls full on the floor of the loft.

Babies investigated, they think that's yummy! :lol:
