    Hello,
    I got some eggs from gamebirdsonly and I had two hatch and one to go.(for sure)
    The one is black with white/yellow head
    The one that did not make it ( pulled to hard away from egg and hurt it's self) looked like the normal ringnecks.
    I have one left that I know will hatch and one not pipped yet. So I will take pictures when all are dry.
    I just can't wait to find out what color that one is. Very pretty color for a chick.
    Thanks for any help!

    Ok the other one hatched this am before I left for work so it should be dry by time I get home. I did snap some quick pics when it was still wet and the other found a way out of the tray! [​IMG]
    So I will post pictures today oh the other one is all blk or blue hard to tell when still wet.

    I'm sure they are melanistics,either green or black.

    I figured the Black one was which is great!
    The white and Black I had know clue. I know he has differant colors. Was hopeing for a blue like some other people have hatched.
    Oh well all the more reason to get more if these work out.
    Thanks again
