I had the same trouble finding it as you did, but finally one of the Google hits told where to find it, and then the link didn't work, and I had to copy and paste it in my browser, but once I found them, I added them to my favorites.

To answer your question about the "bleeding", yes, the Golden face does bleed into the body and turn the sky blue seafoam.

Part of the problem where people get confused about the yellow face genes, is because they think of them as "adding yellow" to blue birds. But what is really happening is that they are a mutation that damages the production of yellow, so they are really "taking away yellow" from green birds.

So a blue bird is really just a green bird that has damaged genes and can't make any yellow at all. And a yellow face bird is a green bird that has partially damaged genes, so it only makes SOME of the yellow. It ends up somewhere in between the green and the blue.

Oh, and also, I have a yf2 cobalt chick that is just starting to molt, so I will let you know what shade her body ends up being.
Thank you after a while of dead ends I was getting aggravated and had to go find something else to do LOL

I'll be looking forward to seeing if you yellow face 2 cobalt blue changes

ooh and how have you been it's been a while I know you have an exchange student with you for a bit, How's that going?

I've had to remind my self a few times that you were very busy this summer to keep the E-mails down until you weren't so busy but all my babies are weaned except the Male English(the "Battle" baby lol) He's being so stubborn I emailed the lady about 2 weeks ago with pics and updates haven't heard a word from her though. But I have seen him in the last 2 days nibbling at the Seeds So I'm planning on sending her an Email again tonight - Hopefully she responds- if not hope she read my disclaimer very well!

One of my babies Moved to Illinois Last week

Thanks again for the links - I'll go check them out.
