    With the red light it is tough to identify. I know there is a tuxedo pied in there though [​IMG]

    Are these buttons? Looks like a blueface tux, a cinnamon, and a silver or silver tux. But it is hard to tell with the red light.

    Quote:[​IMG] You're kidding!?!?!?! The 'tuxedo pied' is definitely blueface, only one color looks that dark. The lighter baby might not be silver but it's hard to tell. You know that blueface and silver are some of the most difficult colors to get? They are my 2 most favorite button colors [​IMG]

    Perhaps they might be carrying the fallow gene...

    The fallows and fallow split eggs were labeled with an "F." They are the hardest to hatch out unfortunately.
