    the current pictures of my flock are not the best
    but i do have a few questions.
    we were told they are calls.
    but looking at everyones pictures they seem slightly larger than they should be,
    i believe i have 2 hens and 2 drakes.
    and do not exactly know the colors. maybe you guys could help with that and tell me if they are too big or if they will round out as they get older
    they are under 4 months old.

    i beleieve the black and white up front is a drake and also a magpie?
    and the all brown one is a hen but not sure on the color. apricot or butterscotch maybe?

    They look like Calls to me. Pet quality are larger than show quality Calls, so I think that's what you have there.
    Color wise, looks like 2 almost Black Bibs, a Blue-Bib(the color isn't reading well on the picture) and the other MAY be a Blue Fawn.

    Quote:the one with alot of white on him is jet black with white, its hard to see in the pictures.
    and the other is different shades of brown, her breast is a dorker color and her back is a light brown .
    from looking at other picture i thought the other 2 were blac bibs, but the one has a patch of brown (thats is the same color as what a gray call would be all over) and his head is turning green.

    it is hard to get good pictures they are flightly and run if you get very close
