    I see you got buttons! I have no idea what color she is but I thought it was funny that your message was the first I clicked on and I had just read some of your posts from back in January! I only have one myself...somebody peeked in the box and let the rest out when I was buying them [​IMG] I am looking for a male now though...my girl is so friendly by herself but I hear they are happier as a twosome.

    Yes, I traded 2 BO's for pair of buttons, then I incubated their eggs and hatched out a trio of buttons from them! This is one of the females, I can not figure out what color she is?

    It's a little boy first of all. It will be what people call "red breasted" But I call them double factor blue face red breast or Golden Red Breast...loong story [​IMG]

    I have a red breasted male and he doesn't look anything like this one! [​IMG]
    I'll post a picture of the other two so you can confirm their genders as well!

    I'm hoping the golden button is at least a female? [​IMG]
    Now I'm gonna have to have 1 lone male by himself! [​IMG] Oh, well!

    Buddy, the camera hog! While I was "Trying" to take his picture he kept running over to the camera and pecking it! He is so funny! [​IMG]
    I'm pretty sure he's a Male? Am I corret?

    100% boy. He has red vent feathers [​IMG] The "red breasteds" or double factor blue faced red breasted (much better name) do take a while to get their adult feathers. They look splashed for the longest time but then they get a black head, a dark breast with red. The first picture is of the double factor blue faced red breasted. You can see the resemblence.

    Now here is my version of the red breasted male. He looks like a blue breasted male (the original color) BUT a red breast.
