    Our pair hatched out some babies and we are not sure what color the light ones are. I have been so impressed with what great parents they have been.

    Wow. You're very lucky!
    Congrats to you and your good little parent birds!

    I think those light babies are cinnamon? I could be wrong. Somebody else wanna weigh in here?

    hard to tell yet give them 8-10 weeks. They look like a few cinnamon tuxedos but ya just never know. they look happy!

    My first guess was cinnamon but they are a bit lighter than another pair of cinnamon that we have. Do all chicks have white wings?

    just a sign of how young they are. they will change again before adult colors are true around 9-12 weeks. The face feathers are the last to change and the wings are the first. Love the tux they are so pretty.[​IMG]
