Saw a hen yesterday morning that had 2 really light colored poults with her, almost a blonde color. The rest of her poults were the normal poult colored, but these 2 really stuck out. There has been a white phase gobbler in that area that's been seen quite a few times. I would of thought the color phase wouldn't show until they had their primary feathers? These poults were about the size of a hen pheasant, so they were getting quite big. It'll be interesting to see if they are a color phased bird?
