  1. Photos would be most helpful in helping everyone identify what you've got... To begin with, your male is split opaline!
  2. If you were to drill a hole in a cap and hang the hook of the coat hanger off there.......
  3. Those roses must be some age! Assuming that some of them are the same plants as in the photo from the '60s!!
  4. Is there a particular reason why you would want to use bleach to clean walls.....?? I would imagine that to be completely unnecessary. As Kaz has said white vinegar is a great cleaner, although still unnecessary for cleaning walls I would think!
  5. Is it just me or is there an evil glint in that eye.....
  6. I agree on the eye colour, look black to me, also, looks like she has wing markings....?
  7. Very sad news. On the positive side, she lives on through her many offspring.
  8. Poor thing is about to explode!!
  9. I think the DF dom pied versus combination pied argument is a little tricky to resolve! The following pics are my birds that are combo pied (parents dom pied and rec pied). Note their similiarity to Kaz's DF dom pieds....... I have a couple more exactly the same. SJW
  10. Wow, just checked out the website, very impressive!! Congratulations!!
  11. Really love that action shot of Twitch!! Lovely chicks Dave!!
  12. Sorry about that.. I'm just constantly amazed by how much you can learn on this site!!
  13. I assume they would have been 2 single factor greys, so outcome would have been 25% chance of double factor grey, 50% chance single factor grey and 25% chance blue (mauve in your case)....
  14. I always thought that a grey bird is a blue bird with one or two grey factors, not split to blue as such....?
  15. Wow! Your photos are fantastic. What camera are you using, if you don't mind me asking?
  16. Sky blue spangle :rofl: Maybe greywing...?
  17. If she's finished laying, you can remove some eggs, it won't prompt her to start again...
  18. They are in a separate breeding cage, I'm not actually colony breeding, and even if I was, I don't have another dominant pied..... , the only other cock I have is a cobalt normal. The mother is recessive pied presumably (no iris rings), if the chick is definitely DF dominant pied, the mother would have to be dominant pied as well...? The chick did have the white opaline down...... Now everyone's confused..... Dean_NZ - Thanks for the explanation about the potential for white chicks from 2 YF2 parents, I never really got that bit about there being SF & DF YF2 and how that breeds on... their is to explinations for this out come 1 the hen is to young but i dont think so she to me looks to be rec pied but ... and 2 she is a dominant pied hen from a domanaint pied / rec ped hen causing badley marked dom pie and holding the rec gene the iris rings dont always show also kazzy pointed something out to me today when questioning my own chicks mutation out comes she has come to a conclushion as i two agree with her that split opaline cocks get the white down All my chicks are hens.....father is opaline, mother is not...... as do split cin chicks get the plum eyes for first few days as we have norm cocks split for opaline who had white down in nest ..... just a thery at moment also hen is a gf sky blue and father mauve which explains the beautiful colours father is cobalt, not mauve mum could be opaline as i had one for ages who never visually looked opaline but defenently was kaz only just explained to me that their is a way to tell this is beside the point, as if the mother is opaline as well as the father then all the chicks must be opaline regardless of sex...... its if the barring on head is broken going lenghth ways across from eye to eye like this - - - - - - insted of full bar with out brakes and mabe dad is df dom just heavly marked only another cluthch will tell the truth of the matter next time put mum with a normal split opaline split rec pie cock that way if you get a opaline cock and a few rec pieds you will have your awnser dad can't be df dominant pied as there are 2 normal chicks in the latest round.... (see above) hope this all made sence pm me if you need more explained oh and if she has the broken barring she is defenently rec pie (gf sky recessive) and dad yf2 mauve df dom (yf2 (or gf) cobalt dom) this gives 100 percent dom chicks however there are normal chicks... the new chicks look to me to be mabe comming out like harliquine (??) breed opaline gf norms so mum probbly is rec dad may be split rec haven't got any recessive chicks as yet, chick from first clutch has iris rings. love to see chicks frount and back when feathered up as this would help me solve your mistry I assume there is sf & df golden face as well as sf & df yf (or yf2)...?
  19. Hopefully they feather up really quickly too, so they're not naked for too long...!!
  20. I can't see them either.... I see very few of ghazzigh's pictures from any posts, I almost always get an icon saying they've been moved or deleted from photobucket....???

  22. Hi All, Some of you may remember my topic from the first round, where I couldn't explain the white chick from YF2 (or GF) parents..... Here are the parents... And the chick from the first round... Note the iris rings, there was some thought that it may have been a recessive pied, however, I'm now thinking just a poorly marked dominant pied...? And the chicks from the second round... (I apologise for the flash, it was getting dark and I couldn't show the colour any other way! It is showing the colour correctly though)... All hens.... The white chick is shaping up to be a copy of her sister (still can't explain the white birds out of 2xYF2 or GF...), while the other 2 appear to be violet YF2 (or GF)! I hope that they stay as their father has with the yellow not affecting the blue (or violet) feathers!! Hope you like my chicks. I'll update the pics as they develop.
