    Well, I've been busy lately, and the buttons were ignored for the past week. Yes, I did change, feed, suppliment, water, etc, but the birds themselves had been ignored. Even my brooder and the chooks and adult coturnix had gone with only a few minutes of play time each day, besides the maintenance. Well, tonight, I go to check to see if I could get that foamy stuff from the buttons to sex them, and realised that my favorite cinnie roo had disappeared. How he did, I don't know. Well, I decided to sex the rest of them to get rid of roos that I didn't want, especially since my baby was somehow missing, I wasn't happy about keeping a bunch of roos anymore. Anyways, I pulled out the one strange button that I've caught a glimpse of here and there over the past week, and couldn't remember where that one came from. Finally, DUH, it's my favorite cinnie roo! He's just all "growed" up now. [​IMG] He's already getting nice and blue, and I think he's actually a red breasted cinnie roo. I feel like an idiot now, but, I'm glad my roo isn't missing after all! Oh well, in my defense, I'm sleep-deprived, worked like crap the past few days and I'm a little "foggy", lol.

    Lol. Well, I did end up with like 5 hens, three roos and two unknowns or something like that. That's based on pink/red tooshie feathers.
