    Yeah, I think so, was hoping for whites as the father was white and the mothers were one white one pied, so must have been the pieds eggs, anyway happy to have 2 healthy babies [​IMG]

    Quote:thats odd because white x pied = 50 % white and 50% pied. or dark pied don't see any white feathers.
