I brought the little boy home last night, so this morning I got some better shots of his pied spot. There is one cute little striped feather in the middle of it

He is not pied. The pied spot on his head could mean that he is split for recessive pied.

Congratulations on your new little cutie!

He could be a poorly marked clearflight or dominant pied, or split for recessive pied. I have had birds with a spot smaller than that and no other pied markings be dominant and clearflight pied personally that had normally marked pied chicks

The only way to know for sure would be breeding him

Here are some pictures of one example He was completely normal looking except for a small spot on the back of his head and I figured he was just split for recessive pied if anything, but he had clearflight pied chicks with 2 different normal hens:






Here are some of the chicks

How can I think about mutations when you post cute pictures like those I was thinking about breeding him, can't wait for the outcome
