    I'm not sure if they have those mixes but you could check out the "Mixed breed photo reference" thread.... also I'm sure they would love pictures of your adult mixes on there... I know i would!! [​IMG] Good luck!

    I'm sure you will get some colorful and interesting birds with that mixture. It's hard to say exactly what they will look like.
    100 degrees F = 38 degrees C

    they will be fine, donĀ“t worry, keep in mind that mother is not always around and sometimes they take up to 2 hours to comeback to the nest, bird embryo have evolved to tolerate cold temperatures. but not as good as taking too much heat.

    let me find a paper I read long ago about them taking very low temps...
