My New Bubs

Recommended Posts

Have posted pics before of the parents somewhere but thought I'd pop some on again. Have just had 5 out of 5 eggs hatch this week, oldest chick is 10 days old, youngest approx 2 days. The dad is a Green Dom pied the female is a normal green-maybe Dom pied(due to a small head spot, her parentage is unknown so haven't totally confirmed it) bubs are going really well the female is a very devoted mother, father is getting dirtier by the day with feeding them all the time!!

Very proud! Have waited quite a while and looked everywhere for a suitable hen to put the male to, not nearly as nice as your birds Daz but very happy with them anyway. I hope to get some nice youngsters out of it for me though!

They aren't much to look at yet, starting to get some yellowish colour coming through. Mum is starting to spend some time for herself out of the nest. I don't think she left from days before she had laid her first egg

If you get them to look straight at you, you can check the width of face. It will give you some idea of how htey will shape up.

Due to my roster at work I haven't been able to peek at these guys for a while so it was exciting to open up the nestbox this morning. To be honest I was expecting more prominent markings but they are exremely cute anyway.

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D:D:)

 

 

Your babies are about 4 days before mine!!! :D Baby 2 is different becuase the others are ooaline...and he is NOT. You can clearly see the faded face on baby 1, that suits opaline...then also the wings, you can see the opaline coming in on baby 1, but normal green on baby 2... :D Best of luck Mate!

 

Kirby :D

Could the dad be split opaline? because he doesn't show any 'opaline' tendencies but if the babies are coming out opaline they have to get it from somewhere and the female can't hide that trait.....right??

Still waiting for pied markings to show up..........
