    So, I have been seeing this alot lately. People who have buff or buff isabel pheasants. But I can't seem to find any pictures or information on the differences. [​IMG] We have two pair of what we were told were buff pheasants and out of our first pair we have hatched three babies. Only one has the buff coloring, the other two are white. We are a little confused by this. [​IMG] So when I saw someone with the buff isabel pheasants for sale, I thought maybe this is what we got and that they were carriers of the white gene. But like I said before I can't find anything on the internet about them or their genetics. If anyone knows of a site with the info or has the info in their heads, maybe you can help me answer my question. Thanks for the help.

    Thanks for the pics. Now do you think that the white babies that we have will look like the buff isabels? I am interested to see. They are growing fast, I should try to get some pics up so you can see them.

    Thanks again.
