    This is Romeo the drake I am keeping - what color is he? I got him May 15th and thought he was around 5-6 weeks old then.

    romeo is silver/white, i'm not sure on the other colours but the "chocolate" one on the bottom looks similar to the bronze colour we have in australia. big dreamer your bird isn't silver or lavendar, i have light blue birds similar to yours but i'm not 100% sure on the fawns etc you have over there.

    my silver drake at arounf 5 months

    My husband almost sold Romeo last night [​IMG] We had a guy come to get 3 drakes and hubby wanted to keep the one that was almost all silver because he thinks the white will get dirty [​IMG]

    I told him he is the only drake with a name so he couldn't sell him [​IMG]
