    Quote:LOL...they are wonderful birds aren't they? We are so "inlove " with them...just crazy about them. They are our new babies! You have 8? wow....that's great! Apparently,I was told that the females are hatched with gray down and the males are pure yellow. I was also told by the same person(of whom we bought them from) that one is a gander(the yellow one) and the other 4 are girls.....hmmm wonder how true this is. I hope he is right!

    Very cute! I have 2 embdens and 2 toulouse. They are getting the feathers in now. I had them out in the yard this evening and was allowing them to run around and eat all the grass they wanted. [​IMG]

    Quote:Do they really have all yellow down if they are male? I have 4 embdens left and all of them had gray and yellow down, but some were darker than others. I think that would be amazing (odds wise) if all of them were female! [​IMG] But I was hoping for at least one male in the bunch.

    Quote:some had different mothers. I was told that 1 hatched on May 24th,another on the 25th....another 2 days later and the other 2 hatched 4 days later than that. So they are all different ages per say. I was wondering the same thing when i got them. Then I asked about their hatching dates.

    that's what I was told...and one of mine has no gray on it at all.....all of the others(4) have gray.
