  1. Hi yourirds in your signature are beautiful 

  2. My birds love the leaves, they sometimes eat those and don't eat the rest
  3. Lovely bird Jimmy. He looks a good size
  4. Wow nice baby It has good feather and wing pattern and a nice width of head. It's also a good size. Keep us posted on how it comes though it's first moult. Well done
  5. Healthy droppings shouldn't stick to them. I think a trip to an avian vet for a check would be a good idea.
  6. Is he fluffed up and what do his dropping look like?
  7. Great, it's just that some people keep their birds inside and give them cuttlefish for the calcium but no vit D so they don't absorb it and the hens use the calcium out of their bones when they lay eggs and it can cause major health problems.
  8. Because you are breeding inside I would be giving them a liquid calcium with vitamin D. The birds need the vitamin D to help them absorb calcium, not all birds eat the cuttlefish, some just chew on it and not ingest it so the hens don't get enough calcium to make up for what they are losing in the egg laying process.
  9. Please G.B start a post, I miss all the people that were here when I joined the forum. As Robyn said your knowledge would be very helpful, there seems to be more newbies then experienced breeders at the moment. Glad to see you popping in Robyn, I hope everything moves smoothly for you and you can get some birds soon.
  10. Thanks Phill, they are nothing compared to yours. I would love your birds and would be so grateful. If you haven't already membership is due. I hope to see you soon.
  11. After a heartbreaking breeding season I thought I would post some pictures of my 2 babies Baby 1 Baby 2
  12. Hi and welcome to the forum
  13. Yes there has been a decline (in NSW I know). I've only been breeding show types for about 2 years but I've been told how many members there were compared to now and I've seen in my own club since I've been there we have lost some long time breeders who just don't want to do it any more. It's very sad.
  14. They are better photos. The yellow is a hen and coming into condition.
  15. I'm no expert but I don't think you have 2 females, they could both be males. The top one I think is a male recessive pied and their ceres don,t go blue it stays pink to flesh coloured. The second one has scaly face and needs treatment. Again I'm no expert hopefully someone else will comment.
