Hello Corinna,

Welcome to our community. Red on the cheeks......Do you you mean the red spot behind the eye? Sometimes it can be surrounded by green in an almost 100% pied. Can you post some pics?

This is normal. The chick is still very young. The red feathers will appear soon.

Hi Corinna,

Green feathers always have a dark underlying skin and dark down in contrast with yellow/pied feathers which have a pink skin and white down. I'm sure the red feathers will appear soon.
