Beeper is still so white! Poor little Pintpot.

Yes...mostly white on Beeper, but feathers on its back are coming through dark blue, possibly violet.

Grif and all the other names I put before it: Tucker, Caboose, Church, Simmons, Sarge and Tex all come from an internet machinema series called Red vs Blue. Donut is the name of the guy in pink armour. :wub:

I love Golly! I might just hop on a plane & nick her! :D

:) Golly flew a little in the nursery cage today. I put the fledged babies in a nursery cage for the day together, so there was 5 of mistys babies, and Golly, Liah and Donut, Divinity (YF violet) and (YF violet) sister Gem, and a little tiny creamino boy, Mini-me.

Karen since Golly flew she has potential to fly right to your house instead of you flying to her :). I have been working on Bubbles to strengthen up the budgie lines flying abilities so they can make it over seas too :D

Goliath and Candy's babies have all fledged except for the 5th baby in Sadie's nestbox. Last one to leave Candy and Goliaths box was Vinnie. I could not believe how big he is !! :blink: I am kicking myself for not having put legrings on this batch as Vinnie is a big, big boy with long mask (cheek feathers ) and so, so violet. He may have done well as a show budgie but no legring. I think I, as a novice can show birds with no legrings for 12 months though so I will find out.

Here is Vinnie jan882.jpg

Here is Beeper from Sadie's nestbox ( also Goliath and Candy's baby )..try and figure him / her out. The only wing markings are a sprinkling of soft grey on the shoulder blade area like a soft grey spangle pattern. He/she is mostly white and has skyblue coming through on tummy and back.

Oh, Karen, what a shame. Will you think about taking this one down for the next meeting as an unbroken cap?

Soooo since you forgot to put legrings on the batch... can I have Beeper? can I? can I? can I?????? Kidding.. :blink:

 

Sooooo Beeper is looking more and more like an Opaline, so if that's the case, little Beeper is a girl. :D

With a hint of grey wing markings ?? Does that make this one a spangle dom pied ? or just weird?

Do you weigh your babies Karen? I'd be really interested to know how their weight has fluctuated over the weeks & for a couple weeks after fledging.

No, I dont weigh them. I have a hard enough time keeping them still enough for a photo :ausb: I check them though from fledging to flight and beyond making sure they are eating, keel bones dont stick out, no pooey bottoms etc. I test bodyweight by feel and memory. Vinnie is humungous !! and I thought Golly was big. Vinnie is like a fast moving beetle scuttling away so fast I cant catch him or take a decent photo. :hap:

Maybe I'll pinch both Golly & Vinnie when I win Lotto & hop on a plane!

I can hardly wait until my aviary quarantine is over & the psittacosis danger has passed! I desperately want some baby budgies!!
