    Can anyone tell what color these calls will be? The colors listed where I bought them from were: pure whites, snowy, magpie, bibbed, grey, and sometimes a buff. I have 5 calls in question because I know the other 3 are chocolates. Sorry I took their picture after they got done eating so they have food on them. 8 very messy eaters. LOL
    There are 3 yellow, 1 with some black tips on its tail and some on its head/back area. I am thinking the yellow ones maybe whites and the other one maybe a snowy?

    And then there is a black and yellow and a mallard looking one I am guessing a magpie and a gray? Anyone else know. Or is it still too soon to tell? Thanks

    Yes she has the short beak and very round head the only 1 out of the bunch. I was hoping for a snowy so I'm glad someone else thinks a snowy and I think it's a boy. They are still hard to tell but I can tell 3 for sure. The mallard looking and other bigger yellow one are boys too. Yours are lil cuties too.

    Oh no no you wont be able to tell sex for a much longer!!!! calls are extremely hard, only once they feather up and start squeking regularly can you decide their gender. Goodluck with hens!

    So you can't tell by vent sexing them yet? I know it took months before I could tell with my older white ones. I have one very loud honking one and 3 raspy ones.

    Nope, they are so tiny that you would only end up hurting them by vent sex. Anyway their voices will change i had ones i thought for sure would be hens but ended up being drakes. Its when they are juveniles their voices come in

    Well hopefully the yellows get some more feathers soon. I already have whites so was hoping for some other colors.
