    Since the boys were freaking out with the big bad camera sticking in the faces, I got some separate pics. Now I realize that there are 4 different colors. I never even realized. [​IMG]
    I hatched these from eggs from shellyd2008...If you see these what colors do you have and are these?
    Thanks.

    All the way to the right hen can be paired with the last photo male (red breasted pearl male, pearl)

    Second to last photo, blue breasted or normal red Breast male (I see some red feathers) so he can be paired with the middle brown wild hen (normal blue breast hen)

    That should get you started [​IMG]

    Shelley! On my phone, computer is way easier to type! Lol

    Quote:Haha!! I was just thinking 'Wow, these look like some of mine' [​IMG]

    If you see these what colors do you have

    Mine are primarily cinnamon, pearl, and wild. When I sent your eggs I had 2 cinnamon tux hens and a wild pied hen. I've since lost one of the tuxedos. I also have a pair of cinnamon blueface and a silver pair, but I rarely get either of those colors [​IMG]

    Your 2 pied/tuxedos are different colors, or at least they look like it in the pic. The one in the back looks like a cinnamon and the one in the front looks like a wild.

    Your girls are (from bottom right): Golden pearl, cinnamon, wild, cinnamon, pearl, cinnamon pearl.

    Your boys are:
    (first pic, first post from left): cinnamon, red breast, wild (blue breast) tuxedo, blue breast, cinnamon tuxedo. The one behind the wild tux looks like a cinnamon but I can't see him too good.
    (2nd post): Cinnamon, Blue breast, red breast.

    The pearl color is dominant, so whatever you put those 3 girls with (cinnamon pearl and 2 pearls) will have mostly pearl babies. Here's how I would pair them off:

    1 of the cinnamon girls with the cinnamon tux boy
    the wild (blue breast) girl with the wild tux boy
    the other cinnamon and the cinnamon pearl girls with the cinnamon boys
    then the 2 pearl girls with the wild and red breasted boys

    Lucky you to have equal numbers!! I just took pics of my babies and have 10 males and 6 females [​IMG]
