Thought you guys might like the opportunity to "Awwwww" over my week old baby APH's.

The photos were took with the zoom while their mommy was off eating some yummy mealworms, she is a very calm mommy and did not mind me stood back taking the photos.

I can not wait for another week or so until I can give them cuddles :)!

No I can't yet tell the colour of them. Their first quills are all solid white, the ones with the darker colours are their second quills. Hard to say at the moment if the paler areas will be pinto or just havnt come through yet. They will go through a few sets of quills over the next few months and although by 6-7 weeks I should be able to tell the colour at their 10-12 week quill they have been known to chance colour, crazy huh?

They all have dark eyes are some dark pigment so there's no albino / cinnamon / champagne etc for sure. Mom is an Algerian Chocolate Pinto and dad is a Algerian Chocolate. I think they babys may have some variation as one has a very dark face but one still had a full pink face/nose (unless he's a bit of a slow developer but they are almost identical in size.

We don't have any salt and peppers in the UK as far as I know. Not sure why I guess it's not a colour/line that was bought over.
The grand parents and great grandparents to theses are chocolate, grey, brown, albino and apricot with some being pinto and snowflake, I'd guess the babys will be from the first 3 colours.

I'm sure I'll be able to keep you updates once they can be handled ill have hundreds of photos!

Aww look at those wrinkly faces! :lovestruck: How old will they be when their eyes open?


Between 2 and 2 and half weeks old, so another 7-10 days xo
