Aww Kazza!!! ;)

 

I know what baby 5 is :) a white recessive pied. My babies both (Quin from Kirby and Belles last clutch, and BubbleGum from this clutch) were both like that. Remember? I thought maybe they were opalines, but stayd white, then around day 5-7 they got dark spots on their foreheads, and blue starting appearing near their feet, and black markings on their wings...so i'm more than 90% sure it's a recessive pied baby :wub:

 

Kirby :D

Then its funny that the foster parents are both recessive pieds. But this baby is definitely Goliaths baby. ;)

Golly was born on the 18th December, baby 2 on the 20th, baby 3 on the 22nd, baby four 24th and baby 5 was born on the 31st . There were 3 eggs that were no good. :D

Baby number 3 jan527.jpgjan523.jpg

Baby four jan521.jpgjan517.jpg

Baby 5 in Sadie's box is colouring up now too. It has some darker feathers on its back and has the dominant pied spot or patch on the back of its head....the largest baby in this nest is baby 5

and a solution to a very hot day. I replaced the nesting box sliding lids for mesh for the day as babies were very hot. jan514.jpg Their other nestbox lids go back on at dusk along with fresh clean bedding.

Parents dont mind, as when the babies get to this size they hardly ever get into the box with them and definitely not on a hot day. Babies get fed at the nestbox entry hole.

Good thats what I thought too. ;) So, the end result from Candy and Goliath would be 3 dominant pieds, one opaline spangle and a violet normal. Two birds worth putting together again. Candy isnt all that large but the chicks produced are excellent for size. Beautiful result :)

Kaz, because goliath's an opaline, and opaline is sex linked, all females will be opalines, and all male babies will be split to opaline. So baby two and four (and possibly five depending on colouring) are boys, and baby one and three (opalines) are girls.

Then they are male babies that BITE :D I am glad to have both sexes here. Will probably keep all of Goliaths babies :)
