    I'm going to post mine here, because some are deleted off of my computer and only in my photobucket. Hopefully that's ok...

    Hey, do you have a specific pose in mind for these pictures? I can attempt to take better pictures of them in different poses (as best I can, you know how buttons are) if you are trying to get specific pictures. I'll have to get pics of the cinnies, slates, etc, plus some more of the newest batch.

    I'm not sure if you'll want to use these ones or not. My slate was either being picked on, or was feather picking itself. And the other one is a little dirty...

    This one I'm not sure if it's a slate or a smokey. The slate listed above is actually a lot darker than this one, but the camera washed the slate out. I'll have to redo pictures of the slate, to get a good color shot...

    How do you get your buttons to sit still on any surface like that? If I set mine on a table they'd shoot off like little feathered rockets. The last one I had out bounced off the ceiling then into the wall and dazed itself so I could catch it.

    I did get an awesome pic of what I think is a double factor blue face hen. May be single factor instead but she had 2 light markings on either side of her throat as a chick so I actually thought it was a male until she matured.

    Quote:BQH said that double factors normally do fade out their white patches so yeah I'd agree its a DF. Shelley has one that may still have it's DF mark whichis pretty neat. [​IMG]

    Yes he still does, it's like a white stripe across the front of his throat. All my buttons look like crap atm, too many in the cages, but when I get them seperated and everyone gets their feathers back, I'll try to get good pics [​IMG]
