Out Of Quarantine And Not Sure On Colors?

Recommended Posts

This is Samson and Delilah, out of quarantine and going into a breeding box to see how they go.

 

Samson is a lemon color with mauve cheek patches and plum eyes??

Delilah is I think maybe a grey green spangle?? She wasn't very impressed with the photo, she was taking a nap.

Sampson looks like he may be a fallow. Delilah is a grey green cinnamon. Opaline too ? is she ? They say not to mix cinnamon with fallow, but its up to you, of course. They may both be opaline too. Nice looking birds.

Would this cock be better for her?

What hen would I put the fallow with then?

I see a grey-green normal hen with the male he could be fallow but I see grey markings not brown.

I'd put the grey green hen to him, the recessive pied wouldn't do him any good.

Are the eyes RED or PLUM ?

Spots seem to be brownish like a cinnamons and that would make the wings brownish. Body colour is a diluted yellow. and red or plum eyes. Interesting bird.

I have had a few people here today so I ask what colors they thought were on the wings and the majority thought the spots were a darkish grey and the bottom tail feathers were cinnamon?? Definitely plum eyes.

Very odd.

Fallow seems to match the best as the eyes are reddish and the cere hasn't changed from the baby pink

Delilah is an opaline, with no spangle, also very gorgeous :sad:

Could he not also be a lacewing as he has no colouring on his belly and the bars on his head seem too dark for a fallow
