    Ahh someone with taste. [​IMG] Love BBB's stock.

    #2 - Mottled D'Anver
    #3 - Porcelain D'Anver
    #4 - Silver Duckwing Phoenix
    #5 - Black Sumatra
    #6 - Porcelain D'Anver and Mottled D'Anvers
    #7 - Silver Duckwing Phoenix
    #8 - Self Blue D'Anver
    #9 - Silver Duckwing Phoenix

    I don't see any Quail in there. . . [​IMG] Or maybe I misidentified some.

    1 - Black Sumatra
    2 - Black Sumatra
    3 - Self Blue D'Anvers
    4 - still don't know
    5 - Does this one have muffs? Might be a Quail.

    Do you have any bearded/muffed black or brown looking ones? I still don't see any that look like Quails, but perhaps if you have some in there that are mostly black, like that last photo. What color of Quail did you order?

    Quote:Yes, your 2 Porcelains are both in the second photo you posted in the beginning. Your 3 Self Blues are, well, 2 of them are huddled in the 3rd photo in your last collection of photos. The 3rd one is probably the one in the background of the 8th photo in your first post. I don't see any blue Sumatras though, perhaps you didn't post photos of them?

    Quote:That's all correct, the "unknow ones" are the 2 white phoenix I sent as extras. Like I said, my phoenix are all in one pen, So I have to set a lot of them to be sure to get silvers when some one wants them. get whites too like this, but they are genetically silver duckwings. There are only 2 of them though, not 5... Just so you know, you can breed the whites and silvers together and you will get white or silver, they wont make some funky color mix, they still come out pure to the color since the white is based out of the silver color.
    I dont see the quail either Micha, he must be the one that didnt make it?? Should be black body with tan face...
