The boys are starting to get their eye feathers! Romeo, pied with 50-50 chance of split to peach: closeup of his train: and flight feathers: (what do you genetists think? split or is this normal for pieds)? D'artagnan, my Buford Bronze, possibly split to -- I think Mr Burt you said pied? These two were from your 2010 hatch. D'arts eye feathers forming -- and listen, camera pics DO NOT do justice to the coloring of the Buford Bronze! his feathers actually have a sort of deep purple cast in sunlight but I have never been able to pick it up on camera. But it's there & I'm not the only one who sees it so I'm not dreaming it! He has white feathers on both sides & also a white throat patch. The gang, all waiting impatiently for their treats - (this is why I can never get good pics of them without a helper)!
