    How soon can you tell with baby buttons if they are the curly ones ?

    My first group (7) are nine days old and getting their feathers. One is either having a bad feather day [​IMG] or maybe is a curly [​IMG]
    Looks like it has tiny wings sticking up above it's real wings in the shoulder area. ( how's that for a technical description ? )

    I'll try to get a photo but they are in hyper popcorn mode [​IMG]
    ( crazey buttons !!! )

    Most of the time you can't tell until they are about 6 weeks sometimes you are it right away. Is it a golden pearl?

    [​IMG] I'm still not that sure on the colors . It is from your batch of eggs. I *beleive* it may be a golden pearl but as this is my first batch of buttons I'm not convinced it is.
    One thing for sure with all the feathering happening I have an amazing assortment of colors [​IMG]

    I'll try to get photos of "bad feather day" button tomorrow so you can let me know what you think.
