    A whole slew of things. [​IMG]


    The top chick could be Duckwing w/columbian, or Duckwing x Wheaten, or Buff x Duckwing, etc etc.

    The bottom chick could be Birchen, Black, or Brown-Red x almost anything but Birchen, Brown-Red, or Black except if the other bird is carrying extra genes (such as columbian, brown-red, or lacing, or the sort)

    Yep and even then, the second chick especially, it's hard to pinpoint what it is genetically [​IMG] A lot of color mixes look identical to each other or even to true-breeding colors.

    But, for a simple name on what the color is or could be called, sure, you can wait til they're 4 months old.
