This may seem like a silly question. Do the colors on a rrs become more intense with age, or do they tend to fade away?

From what I have seen they are most vivid at the juvie stage. Larger ones don't seem to have as vivid red but they still look good. Not too many adults kicking around for comparison though.

Depends on who you ask. I think it's gets more intense with better colors. Some say it gets more dull by losing its red.

So most of the pics in the thread I wanted have been removed from my girls photobucket account. Dug up some pics of the two extremes though.

Thanks for all those pics guys! I wonder if feeding a high diet of carotene type foods would make their colors more vibrant.
