    So far I have 3 with more to come. They are all from my 4 guinea's I have 2 pearls (male & female) 1 white male and 1 lavender female. Can't wait to see what colors I will get. They survived 17 hrs of no power yesterday. I did up them under my 2 hens that went broody ( I thought) but the hens only sat on them over night but that's all I needed. And they are/were due to hatch Friday.

    The one with white on his face is a pied pearl grey, the other 5 look like regular pearl greys. Very cute [​IMG]
