    Partridge. You don't have to wait months to know if they are boys or girls (usually)!

    Blue is just Amazing but I think it might be difficult to achieve?? Splash is a fun and cute color. Buffs are beautiful as well but can also be difficult as you don't want any "muddy" feathers. a deep black can be just as striking as any other color in my opinion. Hope this helps :)
