  1. 18 pairs: - The Main ones of interest are 11 Gary Armstrong 3 Gina House 1 Jeff Lloyd 5 Steve Elliot 1 Kakosckhe There are a few other less notables, but we paired them with 5 of ours we have bred, mainly from Armstrong, Jeff Lloyd, Steve Elliot, and the late Len Cowley birds. Interesting pairs (ours) - Armstrong x to Armstrong - WA breeder to Gina House - Jeff Lloyd/Steve Elliot to Steve Elliot - Armstrong x to Armstrong We have bred two sisters to 2 cross Armstron
  2. Excellent photos of some large and roomy bird flights. I think I need to build another flight after that.
  3. I'd have to say The two Gina House birds aka House, Greg... The big Cec Gearing boy, The Gary Armstrong Lacewing who is grandfather to some of ours born this year - but really they are all better in directional feather / size than most of ours. That they are almost all related from such a tight breeding area is a huge advantage in a lot of ways - they are almost a line / family in their own right. I think it will be good to get some Lacewings and Recessive Pieds, although we bred two together a few months back and got all normals, but they were nice. The new ones have settled in but it w
  4. keeping men out of mischief with these little jobs is a good thing birds delivered to airport safely. Liv and kids delivered to airport safely, minus two items left behind accidentally.................. NO...it wasnt the kids !! :rofl: :rofl: No it wasn't the kids - thjey are here and have NOT stopped talking. mmmm - my Kaz bird perch (adjustable, hinged) is TOOOOO big - next one has to be half the size... barfely a Friday afternoon at that rate. Birds are also safe at home and they look adorable (and a bit hot in the 38 degrees)
  5. Well I had a spare couple of minutes today, to wack up Liv's perches. I used the Kaz ™ collapsible hinged version so that it makes it easy to clean underneath them by unlatching the sides so that it goes flat against the back wall. I think there is enough for the tribe of WA birds to come and stay (including the little urchin that we could mind for Dave McMinn) Interesting, had a chat with a breeder today who was very interested in the birds - his opinion was that there's a LOT of good bloodlines over there... I think he's right by the pictures of the birds I've seen. He was more than

  7. and this boy is TAME. Sits on your finger every chance he gets And ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE I think you have done well to have got hold of soo many birds that are equal to our best, or so much better, and that we can expand the recessive pieds, and create an excellent line of lacewings. The only problem is, where are you going to find a box big enough to put them in on the plane. I have thought about it for quite some time, and decided that you will need to purchase a seat on the aircraft for them And to ensure that you get a good seat, and I reckon they will give you free champag
  8. These look good Liv. I see you have named them.
  9. Mmmmmmm... let... me... think... Seems like I know what I am doing tomorrow - and there I was thinking I'd be roaming around on my motorcycle.. *SIGHS LOUDLY* (but nobody can hear me...) Okay, but I don't know about "wacking" them in. I might use some skilled "handicraft" to assemble some well placed perches Yes, honestly, I'd love to (I will, promise) - we have to put the crate-full of birds somewhere.
  10. A DIFFERENT perspective... Wake up, shower, get dressed - don't eat yet... go check on inside birds... don't eat yet... go check on big aviary... ignore rumbling noise and apologise to the outside birds for rumbling noise from my hungry stomach... go check breeding flight, breeding cages, say nice soothing sounds to gently wake up sleepy hens and get them to feed their young... apologise to the cock birds for my grumbling hungry stomach and rub massage oils into their feet to help them get in "the mood" to create more chicks... Open up the windows at *just* the right angle to ensure they g
  11. They look good Liv. Sounds like you're having a good time.
