    I thought I had buffs, but now it looks like I have 3 different colors. I was curious if you guys could let me know what color you think they are and if you can tell gender yet.

    The top one? All 3 look a different color. I think the bottom one is a buff for sure.

    Thanks!

    The middle one doesn't have any chipmunk stripes, does that matter? I originally thought it might be a red, but then I noticed something that looked like barring on the wing feathers that are coming in, so I wonder if it were partridge.
