    I think the black and lavenders are really pretty but the partridges seem to be getting quite popular so it's really all up to you. The lavs are so gorgeous though that I might get a couple next spring [​IMG]

    If getting for a pet, get the colour or specific bird that makes your heart sing. If getting for exhibition, get the bird with the best type.

    If split, you will not see any appearance of lavender; the bird will be black.
