  1. Well folks, I am setting up my breeding pairs for 2022. I have a violet cobalt cock paired to Violet Green hen. So far she has just hatched one chick. I am hoping to get a visual violet chick. I have my visual violet Cock paired to a Lutino Hen. She is split for violet. Last year she gave me a nice violet mauve spangle male.
  2. So I have one visual violet that I bred to a lutino who is covering violet. She is also a dark green. Earlier this year I bred her to an olive spangle and she threw me a violet mauve spangle. I am trying to copy that for this breeding. Think I can?
  3. I have a violet sky blue hen who is a 2017 hatch. She is showing interest in breeding since she has been on a six month rest. Think she is too old? When do you guys stop breeding your stock?
  4. I have a dark green violet cock that I am breeding to my cobalt violet hen. I am thinking that I would have a good chance of seeing a visual violet bird in the clutch. Am I right?
  5. I am trying my best to breed violets. I had a big setback. I had a violet mauve male that I lost this summer. So I have to start over. I am breeding his parents over. I have a violet cobalt and I am pairing her with a DG violelt. I am a little fruestrated cause my visual violet cock isnt really interested in breeding and a mid 2020 hatching. Any suggestions?
  6. Well I had a bit of a set back. My violet mauve spangle flew away when my wife opened the door so I lost him. He was going to be a foundation for my violets. Boo hoo boo hoo. So my one visual violet male was a mid 2020 and I am expecting him to start breeding. I had him n with a lutino that is slplit to blue and violet. My violet mauve came from her. So she laid 6 egg but they were all clear. So that was a bummer. She only had one clutch this year. So I put her now with my olive spangle who is split for blue. Now the rest of my hens are taking a rest. I am hoping my visual violet will get the hang of mating. I am going to give him a good plucking round the vent for all of my breeders and I will see if any thing is different.
  7. I have a male that I suspect is a grey violet. His father is a violet cobalt dom pied and his mother is a grey opaline. So I plan to breed him next year and I will see what he throws.
  8. My big problem is that I have 1 visual violet, 3 violet sky blues, 2 violet greens and 1 olive. So I am going to have to wait til next season to see any cobalts and visual violets.
  9. I find myself with only one violet cobalt and three violet sky blues, 2 violet greens and one olive. So my big thing is that I have to wait.
  10. Hello, I am new. I have been interested in violets. This is my first season that I am getting results. I have a Visual Violet cock that just started breeding. I have him paired with to a cobalt recessive pied. There are chicks in the nest now. This male I will be using alot. I have two Violet green cocks that I have to use. One will only throw green since he is homozygous and one that is split. I have decided that any mauves I get I will keep the best two for next season. And I want all visual violet females. I live on an island and supply is low. So any suggestions, I will take. I tried the websites you listed, but they are not accessible.
  11. I know your pain my brother. I am trying to get my hens interested in their boxes. It was suggested to me to put some millet in the box and a little bit sticking out of the box. I am checking to see how that works. I will keep you posted.
  12. Okay so I have separated my pairs and I put the hens in the cage first. Except for one lutino hen who paired with a cobal cock. They are really interested. Another breeder told me to put millet in the nest box to lure the hens in to investigate the box. This Saturday I will put the males into the cage to see what happens. I will keep u guys posted.
  13. I am from Hawaii. Any other breeders here in Hawaii?
  14. Something must be happening here in Hawaii. All of the breeders are talking about how hard it is to get their birds to breed birds with healthy eggs. I have had my pairs in cages 1 year and they are not eager to breed.
