I did a post a while back about how much Vanilla had changed since we first got her. She started out vanilla in colour with a few honeycomb spots and has ended up mostly honeycomb coloured.
Spangle has also changed just as dramatically but it’s the other way round. She started out mostly brown and black with a white breast. I thought she looked like a turnstone and the breeder described her as looking like a penguin because of her white breast and dark back.
Spangle is now mostly white with just dark spots and her once all white breast also has some dark spots. I actually think she is much prettier now. She also has a magnificent wide tail (much like Freckles had) which is all white but with one dark top feather.
Notice Spangle has an all white breast and almost all dark back.
I think she has grown more beautiful as I like seeing more white and it shows up her unusual dark spots. It is funny how Vanilla and Spangle have changed so completely whereas Smoke, Marmite and Salmon have stayed the same as they were as chicks.
