    For anyone who's followed when these guys were fluffy chicks this is Klown who I named Klown because he had a tear shaped mark on the sideo f his face...it's now blemished by his feathers...but this is Klown as a feathered cutie he's a litlte bit older than the others and from my own breeding I think he is a rosetta tuxedo..but i need varification from that from my friend::::

    For the past couple of days hubby and I have been landscaping the back part of the fenced in area that houses my coturnix pens (to the right you cannot see in this pic and to the left is my marans pen also cannot see in this pic.....to the left of the black landscaping you'll see a dirt area, today I planted wild hummingbird-attracting flower seeds....can't wait to see those start coming up!!!....and then below that is the "Duck muck" area a natural spring comes out of the ground there and our mallard ducklings LOVE to make a big mess in there so we rocked it up for them so they can keep their messes in a neat area and if they end up turning it into a small pond then great lol.... the black fencing is there just to keep the ducklings out of the seed):::

    [​IMG]

    ofcourse not "other fowl appropriate but it fits in with all of this sooo here lol....this is the mallard ducklings in their duck muck area:::::

    Right on Niki!! Nice looking birds you have!! I may have to send you a picture or two of some of my birds for identification, it also looks like i have a Jumbo brown in the bunch, he is HUGE compared to the others.

    Now, please explain what you are looking for when vent sexing, how to tell the males from females and exactly how to do it, that way i can experiment on the ones i know that are males and females and carry it over to the "others"!!

    By the way, it looks like you have a very nice place there in the woods, i wish i was living in a wooded area like that, my place looks like a prairie and with the exception of a couple mulberry trees its surrounded by widow makers AKA Eucalyptus trees, i hate those things!!

    Take care!!............Jason
