Some Of My 2011 Pairs

Recommended Posts

Hi all got five minutes, thought I'd post some photos of a few of the pairs I have breeding at the moment.

 

This pair have now finished and their babies are fostered under another pair.

and their previous clutch which have bloodied noses from a hawk hassling them.

they will be so so pretty the chicks from these

your birds are beautiful

some your dom pied hens are df doms you knew that right i think you do but if not

it means you dont need to put a pied cock to them just a norm-you will still get all dom pieds

Yeah thanks GB, can't wait to see what I get from that pair.

As for the Dom pieds some of my pieds you would swear were double factor and prove not to be so I reserve my judgement until they have a couple of broods.

i know df doms are ment to give all dom pieds but i know a few that have breed normals every now and again so..... thats how i got my df dom he breed a normal in a clutch of 6 and owner didnt want him after that

ihave no idea how that works but

maybe combination pied rather than true dom could explain it i dont know

Thanks Splat

GB I posted a couple of photos of pieds that both had a non pied parent so maybe there is some sort of modifier happening or recessive in the mix.

sorry what do you mean by both had a none pied parent as in the young look like df pies ???

 

could be rec pied playing a part but do you have any rec pieds at all ?

 

if you have a df pied and a normal paired you should get all pied chicks

 

df and sf pied gives pied sf pied df and normal chicks

 

df and df give i think dont quote me as its morning here df pied whole nest

Hi GB I mean that the young can't be df pieds as they only have one pied parent but they look like df pieds as they have only few markings.

Yes I may have some recessive pied background in some birds so it is possible some will be carrying the gene.
