    but.. i was really curious as to what color this little male is he is not a cinnamon but hes getting a blue face?? i thought he was a normal blue breasted but hes not getting a bib? and i know he isnt a blueface cinnamon becuase when he hatched he was dark like a normal red or blue breasted chick but with no striping all my cinnamon blue faced chicks hatched out yellow.

    Nope, just plain old blue face. Blue face is the 'base' to the cinnamon blue face.

    Personally I like the 'plain old blue faces' better than the cinnamon bf [​IMG]

    Such a gorgeous bird!! Blueface really are beautiful. Just a quick question when it comes to sexing blueface, do males have red feathers around their vent? [​IMG]

    Yes, but the easiest way to sex blue face is the blue head and breast, females don't get that.
