    Thank you! Your right, beautiful either way. I kinda like the leakage too makes him look sophisticated w wing tips :love However this furthure makes me believe dark blue, w lookn at those extra dark feathers on top. Yes he is still young, but thats exactly how the blue comes out in our blrw feathers when young thats why i posted it as an example.

    Yes you did! :lau
