    Oh wow, yes you are correct [​IMG] Cinnamon Red Breasted. I was sure tired [​IMG]


    Is Buddy's breast all blue? Where is the red located? If located on the vent and wings, I would consider him Blue Breasted and you can breed it out with a Blue Breasted Hen and a few generations. If He has has Red on the breast then it would be red breasted.

    Oh, I don't know which color I like better. I like both Birdy and Bunny.

    But see I really do go for the Cinnamon and Gold coloring. Seems like I am just blind to other colors.

    Sorry, I am just pouting because I only have 2 M. Golds that have hatched yet. Guess I'll have to start a thread on the Gold lethal thing. I want to understand it better.
