    He does look like a white male Sebbie to me too. Let me know if you think you might want to hatch out some more Sebbies...I have a few this week that I would like to sell. [email protected]

    Are you guys sure though?? Cause i SWEAR he has a light grey color on his head and shoulders/back....

    His parents are my blues...

    I've never seen a white baby though.. so maybe the grey is normal to them when so young??
    Also, dont the whites have blue eyes? When will he eyes turn blue?

    Boys will hatch with some grey on them, but the females will be very dark. Their eyes will be a very dark blue upon hatching and lighten up as they get older to the light blue color.
