Look like decent birds. How are the frills and do you know the weights on these birds?

Pretty birds! The yellow hen wasn't sold to you as a figurita was it? The beak and head isn't shaped right, I don't see a zipper frill, and it has feathered legs (feather-legged variety of figs do exist but they are rare now).

Hi BLONGBOY, Well I must agree with Becky the brown bird looks like it may be a cross. Now for the white bird what I see is a bird that could be an Italian Owl. I raise Italian Owls and they look like FIGS they are a bit larger and they stand with their tail horizontally to the ground while the Fig has its tail at an angel to the groung the bird that you have here is in the correct station for anItalian Owl ie is a very nice bird. I must say that one realy needs to see the bird as pictures make it hard to judge size. GEORGE

Ah, just making sure. Some people do try to trick others like that.
It's a pretty roller though! Must have some Jaconette blood in it.

I have a single white fig too. I think it might be a male as well. Named him/her Fajita It's barely bigger than my doves!

Figs are fun to keep they are small, but they act as if they are big pouters. Some times they walk on their tippy toes.
