    I'm not even going to attempt to guess the colors, the pictures have too much of a glare for me. [​IMG]

    One thing I will say is that it is impossible to tell the sex of silvers by looking at them from the top. Bibs do not mean they are males, the color of the vent feathers is how you tell that. They should have pink, red, or rust colored vent feathers. It is possible to have a female silver with a bib.

    The few that I think I know is the one you call redbreasted male. I believe it is either a cinnamon or a cinnamon redbreasted. I'll just put it this way, everything after the blueface looks right color-wise, I'm not sure about the first 3 [​IMG] The female is probably correct, though I've got one similar to that and was told she was a cinnamon pearl. I don't know about the first one, and the 3rd, as I said, looks like a cinnamon redbreast.

    Crystal should be along soon, she knows the colors better than me [​IMG]

    I think they are all so pretty. I only have wild ones. Would like some more colors. The photos are great. I can see everything fine, but only new at buttons and don't know what all the different colors are called yet. Still learning.

    Beautiful birds! I just love the color variety. And this is waaaay off topic, but what model horse is the grey in the background,with the western saddle? Not Indian Pony? Some look like Breyers, but maybe not?

    It's okay I think... Peter Stones, Breyers,Grand Champions, many many more! the grey in the picture is "Rowdy" from Peter Stone Grulla Pleasure horse in a breyer ranch saddle set. Then yep some Stable mates and the chesnut is a limited edition grand champion! Want me to make a new seperate post with model horse pictures ? I have some neat ones!!
