I'm so sorry :). Couldn't resist! What's wrong with the beards? The
appear okay in the photo. Nice solid shade of lavender blue. Not
thick enough or what? Blue beards here tend to show up in arilbred
crosses. They take variable forms. Sometimes the tip is blue, or
the top half of the beard hairs or, in one case the very bottom of
the hairs sitting on a blue beard bed. Don't know what else to call
the tissue the beard sits on.
