I noticed this a while back but forgot to ask about it :p
I've got a pied red check bird, and it's very obvious it is carrying blue. But there's one thing on it that I haven't seen before. It has one blue bar tail feather. Now I know they're supposed to have blue FLECKS, but a whole feather, with the bar and all?? Is that normal?

I'll get pics later, as I'm off to a chicken swap! :)

Apparently my eyes fooled me. Half the feather is a blue bar tail feather, which happened to be the half that stuck out in sight :rolleyes: Mine is just a plain ole ash red cockbird. I know he's carrying blue, as he does have other normal flecks throughout the tail. Just thought it was odd that that fleck would expand so much as to make the feather look like a blue bar feather. He's mated to a blue bar, and I allowed them to have one clutch. He's apparently a red check split for both blue and bar, as both babies looked like mom. I'll upload the tail pictures.
