    I picked up 6 buttons the other day.
    I've only had buttons for about a year and only one pair of blueface so I'm no expert on colours.
    Judging by pictures I've seen I'm pretty sure they werent sold as the right colours.
    They were sold to me as two wild hens, silver pair, two blueface roos.

    To me, this hen looks diff from the courtnix like colouring of the other hen. I think this may be a golden pearl, am I correct?

    One of the males, is this a pied? I read theyd have white flight feathers but his are light grey.

    All the birds except the two wild hens have white on their nose area above beak. I read somewhere that means they have pearl in their genes?

    Oops I accidentally pressed submit.

    What does that mean pearl in their genes?

    Heres the other wild hen with the courtnix like colouring! Maybe its just me but the other one looks very different!

    Lastly, they were a surprise and where they came from had them all together, so I do know they need to be in pairs and my SO is finishing their cages today!

    Thanks everyone
