    Well made a hour and half trip and got myself.....

    1 3yr old Peach pair
    1 1.5yr old Tangerine pair

    The Tangerine is a coloration that I have not seen before. The breeder told me he crosses a Peach male with a Splash hen to get them. Pretty amazing looking coloration. The Peach male and hen look great as well! I will get pics up tomorrow if the weather and time cooperates!

    Hello SamG347, if they are the birds on the auction site that were labled Tangerine, they are actually a splash golden (red/peach). Tangerines havent been seen around in quite sometime. I have pictures of the actual last seen tangerines if interested let me know. Although that one pair on the auction site is a VERY nice looking pair. That splash pattern I havent seen before. Best of luck with them.

    Yeah they arent that pair but from the same breeder. I also just think they are just splash...but he takes peach male over splash hen to get them so either way I can't wait to see what they produce. The Peach pair is also very nice quality. The splash male I got has lots of good pattern on him.
    I will get pics ASAP.
