    I had one just hatch this color. Does anyone know what color it will turn out to be? Disappointed I didn't get more to hatch, but that's how it goes with shipped eggs. He sure is cute. Hoping I can find him some friends.

    Quote:Well if it hatched yellow with cream color flight feather , then pattern with be blackshoulder.. Now blackshoulder come in many colors.

    blue BS will get black specks as they get older...purple, peach,cameo,bronze, blackshoulders will get diffrent shades of brown specks, of course the males will be getting darker than the females.

    Then you have the charcoals and opals, blackshoulders and etc.
