for some reason these chicks are pipping themselves to earliy i lost one yesterday pipping death :)BILD4000.jpg
I lost four chicks when the mother heard them pipping and decided to help them out of the egg one at a time. Saved the fifth one by moving the egg and Splats DF cock raised it 007-36.jpg

albinos and the little one their just confirmed for me my worst night mare that this cock also is / cin/albino and make a bet Opaline :wub::P cinnamons ahrrrrrrrr :rofl: :):D

but i knew already deep down it would be as all my/albinos are so far :D really is hard as i dont want to cull these birds as they really are great birds and blood line is what i want

im still not sure how to breed the cinnamon out of the albino hens so .... ill get their though but its not to say they are cinnamon albino hens as hes normal shes normal so get normal hens and cin and albino in norm or cin :D

The lacewings are absolutley stunning! Very pretty colours, looking very vibrant.

I was also going to comment on the 2nd ones performance of his lovely blow, but someone else beat me to it :)

 

 

EDIT: also, I was just wondering how you get the air out of a birds crop? I have had one of my chicks with a crop full of air, but I don't know what to do! He was acting a little off yesterday (not moving much, a little unresponsive) but today his crop had less air and more food, and he seemed a bit better.

Hi GB,

There looking great,

Cheers

Patrick

thanks patrick and splat

im pretty happy their markings are beautiful no thum print

couldnt ask for better just hope it doesnt moult out to get one

not sure if it can

 

also squeak their femal all of them as like clearbodys its a sex linked genetic so any chicks visual from a split cock to normal hen will be hens can also have normal hens but any lacewings can only be hens not cocks

 

as to how i got air out

i lightly pushed it out starting at bottom of crop and in towards center then up

you need to very careful doing it that way

most use a sterile pin but i cant do that i tried it once it worked but gave me creeps i hate needles so

 

 

here is babys two day one came out nest

right on time too

i will leave her their till a few weeks

well i took mum out cage other day as its to to cold to let them have second round

dad is healthy but cold has taken toll on him

im going to let them go through a molt as breeding suppresses molt and both need to molt out to stay healthy in my opinion

mum looks fantastic

chicks are still with dad at moment but all eatting on own

i will leave with dad till he has no interest in them anymore :( see how all chicks come out then decide if she was the right hen for him or not

Great result GB. Good management of mum, dad and babies as well - you are right on about the moult etc. I definately think this pairing was good if the young are anything to go by, cant wait for the moult - especially for baby #2 :(
