My mum is mixed yellow green, and Dad is almost all green. Why have i not got any hairs on my head yet, even my youngest sibling has hairs and he/she is light like me. Im the third born, out of five, so i should have something by now surely?

Scully,

I guess that he/she is plucked by the hen. Nothing to worry about. Some hens do it and some don't. I see he/she is a Lutino. Probably the hen was attracted by the white down.

The yellow is gonna be a slight paler than you are used to see in pieds.
