    Your bobwhites are doing good. I had one fly the coop on me open to feed them and he flew right over my head. He is still out there he lets me see him then flies away. [​IMG]

    I wish you'd make up your mind what you are going to call them!! [​IMG]

    So are these reds the same as my reds? Or are they different? I have 6 of them like this, some are tuxedoed and some aren't, from the eggs I got from Teach97 [​IMG]

    So are they the same as the ones I bought the other day or what?

    (At least I think that's what my other ones look like!! I'd have to get pics to be sure! [​IMG] )
