    More.....Better pictures!

    Thing little one is very skiddish, more than my other button, so I had to keep a good hold on it. Any idea whether this is a boy or girl? I see no signs of red vent feathers, but I don't know if this color will get them... Also, what coloration is this?

    My baby that color definitely has red vent feathers -- so I'd say yours is probably a girl. They are UNMISTAKABLY red on mine.

    Looks like a cinnamon mutation to me. I sent a PM to Shelley she is great at the cinnamon mutations

    Is it the same bird in all 4 pics? I'm thinking she's a golden pearl? Or maybe a cinnamon pearl, though I think she is kinda light to be cinnamon pearl.
    Could she maybe be a golden pearl/wild combo?

    ETA: I meant kinda dark to be a cinnamon pearl, not light. [​IMG]

    Not golden pearl at all
    That light strip in the feathers doen the center makes me think it is a wild/cinnamon mix with maybe some silver in it
