This is my smallest one. She is not a regular greywing like Dove, nor a spangle like her brothers. Her newborn down was white. She has very faint barring on the wings, neck and head. The pattern is like a snowy owl.

Default Here's a later pic of the littlest chick

She's a week older here. Her barring is not gray but there is more white blended in so it looks lighter.

She looks like a Yellowface I skyblue greywing spangle. From what I can see she does not appear to be opaline.

Both Spangle and Opaline cause barring on the head and shoulder area to be lighter/more faded than normal. However, the Opaline gene also causes body color (in this case, sky blue) to appear in the back of the neck, shoulder area and wings. I'm just not seeing that with your babe! ;w;

I agree, not Opaline, definitely Spangle and Yellow Face and probably Greywing.
