    Quote:Thank you, what age range would we be able to tell? the one has black and white feathers coming up on it's face right where the bill attaches to the face.

    Quote:No clue they came from our feed supply. Wow, 7mos? that is quite awhile, we were more curious than anything. I am more dying to know genders but that seems really hard to figure out. [​IMG]

    Holderread sez that white Scovies can have black marks on their heads for up to a year or more. So these might be all white.

    They all look like Whites with Black "caps". They will probably molt out most of the black spot, but may keep some of it [​IMG]
