    So, I think 6 is the final number. All have dried and are mostly fluffy. So what did I get?
    I think these guys are tibetan tuxedos

    This was the first to hatch, Tibetan?

    The first photo is Rosetta Tuxedos
    Second a rosetta, behind it a Tibetan

    Next photo is of a Roux Dilute (fawn is a gene code marker of Italians, roux dilutes, and Manchurian, as well as Autumn Auburns) and then a pharaoh

    The darker ones are Tibetan/tux

    Thanks quaillady. The little one you're calling a roux dilute, is it possible it's a manchurian? That was one color that was supposed to be in the mix.
    Thanks Missi, they're very funny the three tuxedos do just about everything together.
    I'm going to open the last egg today, see what went wrong and what color it was. [​IMG]

    I don't see any manchurians in the mix at all. Those would be yellow with faint stripes.

    The one she calls roux dilute is also known as cinnamon (to people who didn't get eggs from her [​IMG]). I don't think the first ones are tuxedo, not enough yellow down on them. They might be pied (have very little white on their breasts) as adults, but they just don't look like a 'true' tux. The last one is a dark tibetan/dark range and probably tuxedo. If they have white wing tips they are tuxes.

    Quote:Yes but we don't live abroad now do we? Whenever you get some 'real' cinnamons then we can change the name [​IMG]
