    Hi all,

    Could anyone please help me confirm the colour of this girl. I had her with a golden who was definitely a golden (little ratbag flew away today just as I was getting sorted to clip her wings as I knew she was flighty) but she seems lighter than the rest of the wild/brown girls I have seen. Have I just seen very dark ones? She's kind of light chocolate brown with golden highlights:

    First pic is her, second shows her next to the golden.Sorry about the poor pics. She isn't reddish except for a feather here and there.

    Thanks for any input!

    Thanks, but I've looked at those and she doesn't actually look like any of those photos. She's sorta halfway in between a brown and a golden, but isn't a cinnamon.
