    This chick is from Amy Peihl and came from just a black X black pen. Its about 2 or 3 weeks old right now. What color do you think it will be?

    Do you have a photo of the whole body that is in focus? All I can see is a glob of multi-coloured feathers [​IMG]

    Sorry the pic is blurry and bad! BYC doesnt let me upload them all for some reason. Im going take better pics. Sorry! Ohh and usually the black gets gold leakage at 4-6 months of age. It seems like its feathering out all brown.

    Here is one more pic. I took about a dozen and BYC doesnt let me upload it for some reason! ughhhh When I finish uploading it, it shows it uploaded a picture I already uploaded a long time ago. Its confusing. It only lets me upload the first picture I took. Anyways, I just looked at the chicks face and its turning brown too! Weird!

    if your camara is numbering the pics or your photo program is,,BYC will only upload one of each number,,you have to rename the photos before trying to upload ..maybe ask Amy about the coloring,,sense they are her birds,and she is always very helpful.
