    Just from what I can see, there looks to be Chocolate, Black, possible Blue, and possible Barred. Cute as the dickens!

    It's really impossible to tell till their a little older, but I'd say Black, Blue, Chocolate, Barred of all three? And maybe one white
     
  6. Thanks! I'm going to get them tomorrow --- yaaay!
    She said they *should be* chocolate, black, and the one white.
    Color me excited!

    The little yellow one has a grey bill. If it also has a bit of color on the end of its tail the it is barred & barred whatever the color stripe is.
     
  8. Thanks! I know nothing about Moscovy genetics, so we'll see how they feather out.

  9. Weeeellll, we brought all 11 of the little darlings home.
    One of my pals wants 4 of them, but which ones can I bear to part with? Any tips to guess M/F at this age?
    I'll get better pics tomorrow.
