Shelley (aka-me smile) has lost her faith in identifying the little boogers. I'd say that #1 is a golden pearl, #2 is a wild, #3 is a silver (maybe silver redbreast), and #4 is a cinnamon, but I'm probably wrong.

I'd say that #2 is a Blue breasted, #3 is a silver (maybe silver redbreast), and #4 is a cinnamon, but I'm probably wrong too.

I agree with Shelly lol big_smile

That's a good question, I'd like to know too. I don't see any red or blue on it yet, I think it's too young.
