Babies are feathering up now from pin feather stage. Would you like to guess what they will be ?

Very cute Kaz. Any guesses on colours? All 3 look to be pieds to my untrained eyes. Spangles? I can never tell. The pied thing throws me out every time.

All three of Goliaths and sooticas are pied, at least two are YF and maybe spangle pieds in one or two Edited by KAZ

Very cute. So in micky and Softy's babies, the first one does not look like an opaline, but will look like dad otherwise, you can say it is a baby boy YF2 right? Mum is a greywing clearflight pied? Is that right? Babies 2 and 3 certainly look like pieds. they have their Dad's colour, with the yellow pins on tail, but they look pied to me as well

While I was out today SOFTY attacked and killed this chick

so I have removed her from the breeder cabinet and placed the other two chicks in the nest of GOLIATH and SOOTICA.....so far so good.

It looks okay so far. Goliath got in and fed the two newcomers straight away. I will check them in the morning.

I dont think the oldest is opaline, but I will double check later :blush: Goliath and Sooticas pieds are very pretty....pale lemon with blue coming through. They look to be all spangle dom pieds too.

Oh Kaz, the poor little bub!!! At least you've got some great fosters to take over the motherly role with the others. I wonder why some hens do what they do??? I guess they just weren't meant to be mum's but had sex anyway... Like some HUMANS... :blush:
