Well darn, I was hoping she'd have colored tail feathers so you'd know for sure if it was indigo Does look a lot like it, and bronze too. Some others should be here soon to give their input
Yes - bull. If all goes well, dad (white bird) will have 2 more babies in a week or so with Atlantis. Atlantis is a prior Polaris daughter, therefore, Luna's 1/2 sister and she actually does look much like Luna. Atlantis' wings have more gray / Luna has more red & Atlantis has more color splashes, where Luna's color is all on her chest and the back of her wings. An interesting comparison.The baby may have sooty making false checks, best to wait for moult to be sure. I don't see anything but ash red as to color. If dad hides anything besides ash red, it will show up in his young hens.
From this one baby, I'd say dad is recessive white over ash red check but one baby is way too premature to make this assumption. What color are the white bird's eyes? If bull, he is likely to be recessive white, which can hide many colors and modifiers.
Why not? I'm not sure what you mean. I'd be happy to know your viewpoint and why.I don't really see how Luna could be ash red
This is pretty much what ash red checks look like with a darkening gene such as dirty, smoky or sooty. I'm pretty sure that it at least has sooty.Well, she just looks very, very blue to me. Her mom looks like an ash red, but Luna doesn't. Looks more like a blue with bronze to me
