    Hi I just started to hatch out some CPq. But I am not sure on what to get to pair these of. I would like to make specific colour trios

    These are my birds see extra pics here

    Too many to paste over

    Silver I think hen. But it's like stripey

    This is a red breast I presume. But it says pearl gene ?. What does that mean ? Can I get pearl hens ?

    This one confuses me It's like a blue red breast but black face. But that thin white line does it mean cock. Has this got a colour name?

    This I think is a hen but what is it called colour ?

    This is a male red breast but no white face or forehead I have 3 of these

    I would like to trio them up can you suggest. Colour matches please to give good specific colour eggs/chicks.
    What most popular birds rare in CPq?
    Thank you so much for looking

    I would suggest pairing as they are monogamous birds. Read the stickies for information on them.

    In your photos I see a normal blue breasted male, blue face hen, black face red breasted male, Golden pearl red breasted male, and a silver red breasted hen.
