    Are those my grandbabies??? So adorable! the last one should be a red breasted if there is a splotch on the head and rump (and a female), I see cinnamons, silver, even that tuxedo [​IMG] so adorable! The really dark one is a blue face. Probably double factor since the parents are doubles.

    Quail Lady is much better at colors then I am...they're so cute! [​IMG] Your Black Tuxedo bumble bee is super cute! [​IMG] I have one Black Tuxedo/Pied female, Angela. She is such a doll. If I look at any more cute bumble bee pictures I may have to set some of Fredia and Angela's eggs!

    I believe the light striped ones are some golden pearls because I know I sent you some from those pairs [​IMG]

    The dark one does not look like a blue face. I've had some hatch like that and I believe they turned out to be cinnamon pearls.

    Im pretty sure I have two golden pearls, Two cinnamons, and two silvers. Correct me if im wrong but from wut everyone is saying and Zebrafinch.com that looks to be about right. plus the Tuxedo and the one that has the blak butt. Still not 100% on the little dark one.

    So its been two weeks and i thought id post some more pics of them. I only Have 5 now as I have rehomed the other 4.


    This is penguin. Im positive hes a boy beasue he has red ven feathers.
    [​IMG]

    This is Puffin. THis is the one that we thought would be a Red breast, she turned into a Tuxedo! [​IMG] Im gonna guess this is a girl. no red vent feathers, yet. im hoping its a she. Does anyone know what color tuxedo she will eventually be?
    [​IMG]

    This is the two tuxs together. i have them paired off for now, unless puffin shows signs of being a boy.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This is The two of the lighter chicks (not sure if its the yellow striped or orange striped) I know the one on the left is a roo and im hoping the one on the right is a hen, again she has no red vent feathers yet. cinnamins??
    [​IMG]

    This is that little dark chick that that we were stumped about. anybody got ideas?
