    I'm supposed to be good at this - in theory - but I just found out that 6 months of reading doesn't exactly guarantee that I can identify my new buttons... [​IMG]

    So... maybe someone here could help me figure out their colors?

    This is a normal hen? I think she is, but I don't know for certain since I' ve never seen one before.

    But what about this? Golden pearl?

    I know she is double factor blue face. She doesn't have other colors though, does she?

    I think all my knowledge and confidence with these things flew right out of my head the moment I saw these girls and now I have to double check everything. [​IMG]

    That's what they look like to me. If you are sure the blueface is a hen, it is definitely a df. The white on the breast is evidence of that.

    ETA: #2 might be a redbreast, but I don't think so.

    Well, maybe that reading paid off after all. [​IMG]

    And thanks for confirming those colors. [​IMG] I'm fine with this information for a while - at least untill I get my first button babies.
