    Hey all, Im having a hard time thinking on what colours these little one are, if you can help me that would be awesome:
    All are white breast to bottom and also almost 2 weeks old (Weds is 2 weeks)
    This little guy's back looks grey in the picture, but its a Blueish grey.

    chick one looks like one of those light/red tuxedos, the other chicks are tuxedos - I'm not great a differenciating between the slight differences in tuxedo/range/tibetan colours but they are all of the tuxedo type at any rate :)

    Thanks :D I also got told by a friend that the first chick might be a Blue Tuxedo? Sorry for the links not working :/ I sorta had to Post and turn off the computer. Sorry for the bad pics, they where running around a lot. Holding them wasn't making a difference. I will try to take better pics of these little guys today.

    yeah it's hard to tell from the photo just what shade that first one is. By blue I assume they mean slate or silver. Sometimes you can get a shade of slate that's a little cinnamin too and it makeskind of a brownish gray colour.

    Yah. Interesting. Well, I relooked at this little one, it has blueish/grey, than has like a tib or a wild type down the middle, or something to that degree. Its jsut coming in, so it wouldn't have been there yesterday when I took pics

    #1 is either a

    Wh+Wh+ brbbrb Ywyw+ Ee+ Pipi+
    Scarlet (italian) Tuxedo

    or a

    Wh+Wh+ brbbrb YwYw Ee+ Pipi+
    Scarlet Manchurian Tuxedo

    scarlet is:

    homozygous wildtype at the "white" loci= Wh+Wh+

    homozygous Roux at the "brown" loci = brbbrb

    either heterozygous or homozygous at the "yellow" loci Ywyw+ or YwYw but not wildtype

    heterozygous Tibetan at the "red" loci= Ee+

    and carries the tux gene, heterozygous at the "pied" loci= Pipi+

    Scarlets do not breed true because of the 1 copy of the gene at the "yellow" and "red" loci


    breeding 2 scarlets would yield birds with 0, 1 and 2 copies of the genes at both the yellow and red loci

    birds with 0 copies will be roux italians and roux manchurians, 1 copies are your scarlets (italian or manchurian) , 2 copies will give you a red (italian and manchurian)
