BUDGIE L0V3R

Breeding Season

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've been asking a few questions regarding my baby budgies over the past couple of weeks so I thought I would show them off now that they have started colouring up. I have a total of 30 babies, some are starting to leave the nests now and the mums are looking at laying there 2nd rounds.

 

I was unable to have a picture of 1 clutch as it was to blurry, this clutch was the one that had 2 different mothers and have a nice assortment of colours.

 

 

 

Here are my youngest chicks, unaware of colours yet.

These are my second youngest, just a bit older than the previous ones. Looking to be blue opalines.

The oldest box, missing a few chicks now that they have decided to fledge. This box could produce my first male lutinos, mother is a lacewing and father is a yellow grey wing, split to ino. they produced 2 grey wings (1male and 1female), 2 lutinos and one green (male)

Second oldest box, babies of my best breeder, 2 lacewings (females) and 2 golden faces (1 male and 1 female) I know they are golden faces as I have bred a few of these from her and as they grow older the blue turns into a sea form green.

2 cinnamons, haven't really checked gender yet. Had 3 babies but 1 died at about 5 days of age, could only imagine what colour it could have been.

2nd largest box, 1 albino, 1 lutino (both female), 1 cinnamon, couple of other colours, and the one closet to the front is looking to be a violet yellowface cinnamon. Very excited about it!

A fairly young baby, getting raised by its mother and also a male cockatiel, since hatching the cockatiel hasnt left the breeding box. He often raises budgie chicks and will feed them in the box and also when they fledge.

IMG_0404_zps850b4e7e.jpg?t=1381479645

 

1 of the lutinos (hopefully first male) and 1 of the lutino lace wings, from different clutches. I am amazed of how different the yellows can be on birds, could any body tell me how I could get the lacewings yellow to become darker?

The grey wing, related to the lutino.

The golden face, only 2 left in the box it fledged from.

Thanks for looking, most of the lutinos I have are going to be lacewing which is great, only bred 2 pure lutinos which are the ones that could become male.

Some very beautiful birds. I especially love the one that has the color turquoise on her. That is one spectacular color! All beautiful. :)

Lovely lot of chicks Budgie Lov3r. I think the cockatiel has an identity problem, great to see they are so compatable in the same aviary.

Your violet y.faced cinnamon looks interesting, can you add more pics as they fledge ?

Thanks for the comments,

Yeah it may have a bit of a problem there :laughter: , I've had them together for a long time without problems. The cockatiel raised the lacewing it is in the box with now so they have a pretty close bond.

 

Your violet y.faced cinnamon looks interesting

Is that interesting in a good way?

 

Here are a couple pictures of the violet yf. cinnamon, not sure of the name but is it a clear fligt pied as well? (could be called something else)

IMG_0424_zps9194ea09.jpg?t=1381626116

 

4 of my lutinos together, 2 lacewing and 2 normal, still have about 3-4 lutinos and albinos to come out.

IMG_0429_zps4263837c.jpg?t=1381539787

 

This is the nest that has 2 mothers, 7 babies total. 1 normal blue, 1 blue clear flight pied? (unsure if that's correct name), a couple of green pieds and also a couple of lutinos (looking to be lacewings)

your question " I am amazed of how different the yellows can be on birds, could any body tell me how I could get the lacewings yellow to become darker?"

 

Cinnamon gene will reduce the vibrancy of the body colour resulting in a paler body colour.

Beautiful babies you have there :)

 

I agree with Paulie on the lacewing question. Is that the true colour of the YF cinn because to me it looks like a YF mauve. I can't wait to see photos of it when it's fully feathered.

The yf. cin. violet is almost ready to fledge so I will post pictures anyday, i'm not sure if it is violet as it is looking like a light blue. I also have the same bird in the same box but without the cinnamon gene in it so I will compare the two together.

 

I can't remember exactly but I think i was told that if a baby is cinnamon unless the mum is a cinnamon the baby will be a female even if male is cinnamon or split. Am i right or could the baby be either male or female. Male is cinnamon and mum isn't.

 

Thanks

'BUDGIE L0V3R Not sure if i understand the question but here goes.

 

Cinnamon gene works much the same way as ino gene ;ie hen cannot be split cinnamon, The cinnamon gene can also crossover or mix with the ino gene as their loci are located extremely closely within the structure of the carrying chromosome.

If you use the charts from SunshinEs other post and replace "ino" with "cin" you should be able to work it out. not withstanding ino-cin Xover.

Thanks paulie it was pretty badly worded. You answered it correctly so you must be pretty smart to understand my bad writing.

 

So that will mean my yf. Cin. Violet will be a female because the dad is a cinnamon and the mum isn't.

Am I right in thinking that?

 

Thanks

what are the parents? 1.0 being cock and 0.1 being hen.

 

 

I think that is correct though

 

 

Some one pls correct me if I'm wrong

 

 

Basic for cin cock X non cin hen

Xcin X 1.0

X Y 0.1

 

Xcin X 1.0 25%

Xcin Y 0.1 25%

XX 1.0 25%

XY 0.1 25%

 

or

 

Xcin Xcin 1.0

X Y 0.1

 

Xcin X 1.0 50%

Xcin Y 0.1 50%

I think that is correct Paulie

 

If the male is a visual cinnamon (not just split to cinnamon), all the female chicks will be cinnamon and all the male chicks will be split to cinnamon. This means that any visual cinnamons from a cinnamon male and non-cinnamon female will be female chicks.

Hi all,

 

Didn't really update this post once the babies left the box. They have now been sold, I still have the YF. Cin. Vio. but it has splayed legs, but is still fine perching and flying around the aviary. I will have to take some pictures for all of you to see her.

 

My birds are currently going through there second round with about half the amount of babies from the first. I have pulled most females out of the aviary while the last babies are raised as I want to take the boxes out over summer, they have been in a little bit longer than I had wanted them to be,

 

Once again I had 2 females nest in the same box, they laid 6 eggs and all appeared to be fertile but only 3 hatched and 1 died a day after hatching.

If you know the name for the mutations could you please tell me.

 

 

IMG_0670.jpg?t=1387768948

 

IMG_0669.jpg?t=1387769023

 

This box has 1 violet opaline 2 yellow pieds and an albino lacewing which has been fostered in

 

IMG_0664.jpg?t=1387769238

 

IMG_0661.jpg?t=1387769318

 

This box contains 3 blue opalines (males split to cinnamon) and another albino lacewing which was fostered in

 

IMG_0674.jpg?t=1387769414

 

IMG_0672.jpg?t=1387769453

 

This box only has 2 babies, originally had 4 but the dad passed away so I fostered 2 babies out. Contains 1 albino lacewing and maybe a pied? I am unsure could someone please clarify

 

IMG_0668.jpg?t=1387769551

 

Thanks for looking, if you can clarify any colours please let me know.

The last two looks like dominant pied and albino.
