Chicken McLickin has white cheek patches. She is a green (possibly violet i am told like her dad) spangle opaline. Does any one know why this occurs? is it anything to do with her mutations of colouring. Her dad was a Violet blue spangle clearflight pied, split for opaline if that helps anyone.

I just think their rather cute :D

Single factor spangles usually have white or partly white cheek patches. Double factor spangles always have white cheek patches

Lutino & albinos always have white cheek patches

All three pied mutations will have white cheek patches if there is a pied area where the cheek patch is

Erika,

I immediately thought about your Roger...when I read this from Nev about "pied" cheek patches...

Well, a very good example of this cheek patch colouring then!..just perfect!

...and just to show what Nev said about the "lutino" & "spangle" cheek patches, here are two examples of my (sadly past, sold since) birds!

Lutino:

Spangle (Opaline-Grey):

Tasha,
A really lovely bird you have in this hen!...it would be interesting & probably spectacular looking babies from this pairing?!

Enjoy!
