    Quote:Starting with the parentals, the hen is a normal red breast, the cock is a black face red breasted (carries blue face).

    The first two photos are cinnamon (we won't know pearl or red breast until later in growth) and blue faces ( the little stripe under one is an indicator of double factor blue face...if the daddy is the parent in the photo on the bottom, he carries blue face no doubt as that is in the color...used to be mistaken as red breast male BUT the normal breast male looks like the normal blue face male but with more of an extension of red on his breast).

    The Parents at the bottom are the new baby's parents (pictures 4-6) I dont know who the parents of the 3 babies in pictures 1-3 are (took the pictures off to keep from any confusion). they came from hatching eggs.
    So how did I get a Cinnamon (baby in pics remaining in OP) from those 2 parents?

    It's actually easier to tell colors when they first hatch, so they should be right.
