    I had set 4 eggs just for the heck of it since all my last ones were male. I got 3 babies from the 4 eggs. And boy are they cute. I have them in with two tiny bantam cochin babies that just hatched and they are cuddling. Very cute. Will post pics soon.

    Those tiny bantam cochins look huge compared to the itty bitty buttons. But the cochins are very small and the buttons even smaller.

    Marie,
    Do you know what color those will be? What were the parents? I'm trying to hone my ID skills. [​IMG] Can I guess cinnamon?

    I have no idea. I do have one cinnamon male but I don't think my alfa male lets him anywhere near the girls who are normal and silver. My alfa male is a blue breasted? normal I think. If you know I can send you pics and you can tell me????

    I use this website for figuring out colors...

    The chicks that I had that looked like that turned out to be cinnamons... [​IMG] I would love to see photos of the parents, though (if you can get them to sit still for you... [​IMG] )

    Here are some pics of my adult birds. I am only getting two eggs a day and I can't figure out who is laying. I think I know who the girls are, but obviously there are not as many as I thought. Wouldn't they all be laying. They are all old enough except the newest one which is in the first picture.

    New (girl?) What color?

    [​IMG]


    Two silver girls? and a normal girl:

    [​IMG]

    Normal Red Breasted? boy and new girl:

    [​IMG]

    Cinnamon boy who is alone right now due to an injury to his eye:

    [​IMG]

    Here is my normal girl, a silver girl (have 2) and my normal red breasted male (alpha male).

    What do you think. Am I close on the colors?

    I have cochin banties so I know they are not much bigger than my thumb at hatch - you almost need a magnifying glass to see those guys - boy are they cute!
