Unlikely Stafford Couple

I was so happy to see these two young Stafford "males" feeding each other. Then I noticed it was usually the red one feeding the male mosaic pattern "male". Taking a closer look, it was apparent that the male mosaic pattern bird was really a hen and a nest was in order! She is setting nicely on five eggs and hopefully some chicks are in our future.

Interesting combo producing some nice babies; Color from Dad and nice round heads from Mom. It happens that Mother Nature works her magic and fools the best canary breeders. Will be interested to see the results of this pairing. Probably mostly varigated birds, but a clear could be in one of those eggs?
