    Finally moved the babies out of the brooder, so I thought I'd take some pics. Enjoy!

    I love the wild pied? And I bet the mama is the one you hatched from me? the wild pied lady?

    Quote:I would think so. The 2 tuxedo hens I had (cinnamon tuxedo) had a cinnamon blueface mate and a golden pearl mate, so I doubt I'd get wild pied from either of those.

    @quaillady: The one in the front of the first pic 'behind' the pied is the one I was telling you about...interesting color on that one right now, though he's probably plain old cinnamon or something [​IMG]

    In the second pic he is behind the pearl hen in front and next to the other cinnamon-looking one.

    Oh, I see what you mean, that is nifty! I would wait and see if he is just changing so he is showing a new look [​IMG] Girl, talk about the pearl being the plaque!!! LOL

    4th pic, bird all the way on the right (center). Is that one a cinnamon blueface? None of them looked it as babies, but the cinnamon bluefaces come in all different variations.
