ok that confused me even more - This is a picture of recent babies(born July) they all have white down and None were Opaline There was Grey cinnamon females, a Violet Sky Blue Male split to cinnamon but none were Opaline as neither parent is OpalineThe white down shows that the chick is opaline. If it was green series there would be some yellow showing on the wings at this age
This is good to know. It explains why I've had different shades of down, and some whiter than others.Other mutations that have white down are inos, & recessive pieds. Greywings, cinnamons & clearwings have very light coloured down but it is not as white as the opalines.
