    I know the genders of most of them, but a few I am un-sure on.

    Since there are 11 of these little boogers then to make it easier on Me and You I am only going to post one pic of the button per every post. Got That?

    I know both of these are Cinnamon Females - Aren't they cute. They got paired up with males today.

    Quote:Sort of, Males will have Blue & Red Vent feathers and they will also have a big bib. Females also have bibs, like the Female Red Breasted - But she has a different kind of Bib. [​IMG]

    Most of the females are a completely different color from the males. The males of the cinnamons, for example, are very even-colored cinnamon, not 'splotchy' like the 2 girls are. The redbreast males look even more different. They have blue backs and red breasts, nothing like the girls! Basically, and button that has BLUE feathers on it is a boy, and any button that has red, pink, or rust colored VENT feathers is a boy.

    Sorry to tell you Fluffy that you can't sex tuxedos by looking at them...not even in buttons [​IMG]

    Your cinnamons have a lot of pearling, or maybe it's the lighting...they almost look like my Golden pearl hen I am selling [​IMG]
