    When this little guy hatched I thought he was a buff. then I thought partridge after a day. NOW I think Porcelain.

    Could anyone tell me if I am correct on Porcelain?
    (yes I know she has a slightly slipped beak. checked on her, and realized it had almost fully fixed itself!)

    I also think I have a Partridge....if anyone could confirm it would be great!




    [​IMG]
    A white? confirmation please?





    So here are all of them together: (please ignore my little black mix or in the corner LOL)

    maybe its my screen. The picture with the group ( 12 chicks) makes it look grey. And also the picture when it is still wet has a lot of grey. But like i said it is probable my screen, have been meaning to get a new one. I would like to see a picture when they are 6-8 weeks.
