Default Cere question

Hi Eva is between 5 and 6 months she had a brown cere which is now changing to light blue which is confusing me as I thought the cere only changes and to crusty brown when in season which she would have been too young to do. I was assuming it was just brown and would stay that way. Is it normal for a young bird to change cere colour to blue at this age?

How long has it been brown for? Young hens can get a brown cere at this age, it is hormonal rather than meaning they are ready to breed.

That means that she's coming out of breeding condition then

It's perfectly normal and nothing to worry about

Yes, it is possible she was in condition at 4 months.
Eva is certainly a pretty little girl!
