Venus is an AustraWhat?

June 15, 2008 § Leave a comment

Well I have no idea what’s going on with Venus. I’d noticed that there were some white marks on her, but I assumed they were just flecks of poo or scurf or stuff (technical term). But no, now that she’s finished her moult, her adult plumage is actually coming through with white feathers. Some are completely white; some are grizzled or flecked. Some are white from about halfway to the base of the shaft, but still black enough so that you can’t tell unless you physically part her feathers and look.

Weird!

I’ve posted about to her here to the BYP forum, in the hopes that someone else can guess what on earth it is that she has in her. (Australorps should be completely black.)

A couple of photos, to show you what I mean (taken with Venus on my lap):
