Hi everybody,
i know that pieds keep their orange beak but i was wondering can normals have orange beaks as well?
Are all chicks born with orange beaks and then they change according to mutation?

Thank you in advance :)

I think most chicks have orange beaks (& pink feet) when they are born. Recessive pieds and inos keep their orange beaks and pink feet

As nev said, many start out that way. I think albinistic and some melanistic mutations in general retain the orange beak.
