I would put the pied boy with him. Of course, we are assuming here that it is after quarantine, that they are all enough, that they are in breeding conditions. Wow, a lot to think about.

what colour babies do you want? If you want greens then the "yellow and grey" one, if you want blues the pair the 2 blues...

 

Do you know if the "yellow and grey" bird is split for blue?

 

I agree with Dave, do you know the age of these birds?

When you get them, give them time to settle in, adjust to new condtions and food etc. Remember stress from moving and do not breed immediately you have them.....wait at least a month. Build them up first :thanks:

I would breed it with the blue pied. You're likely to get a lot more variety in your babies than if you bred with a cock that has more dominant features than Bluebell has if that makes sense

I was actually talking about the time it takes a pair to settle in and get used to your place and the stresses of moving etc BEFORE breeding them.
