I thought someone here recently said that a pied bird (no matter which type) has clear center tail feathers. Is this ALWAYS the case? I have a baby from a light green dominant pied male and a DF YF1 sky blue hen that has blue center tail feathers. The other 3 dominant pieds in this clutch have clear center feathers and so do all the recessive pied I have in my other pair's clutch. Here's the pic. He's around 4 weeks old.
