Jnr Boss & Supermum - Round 2

Recommended Posts

Naughty children were mating and laying eggs before I could prevent it so I let them go a round 2.

 

There were 9 eggs, but I checked on Sunday and I confirmed 4 as definately not being fertile. The others I'm doubtful but you never know. :rolleyes:

I hope they do well as the eggs had gotten very dry & some were starting to crack with the heat as the mum didn't go out for a bath. I ended up misting the eggs.

I am happy to say that I am completely wrong!

 

All 5 eggs have hatched! The last 2 have pink eyes!

Jnr Boss is Recessive Pied split to Lutino & Supermum is Albino (bought bird).

Jnr Boss isn't split to cinnamon is he? Hence the pink eyes of a young cinnamon.

No, Recessive & Lutino back 3 generations.

Maybe they were red eye, they all look pink to me at that age! :(Laughing out loud):

Such cute babies and such a variety in one clutch!

 

Where would the blue be coming from?

Hi Lucy,

 

the albino is a blue based bird and the recessive pied split to lutino would also therefore be split for blue.

 

 

Feathers.

How is it that I have not been able to breed a copy of Jnr Boss? He has fathered (I dunno) about 35 chicks and not a single one has been Recessive Pied. He has fathered a number of Lacewings hens which I'm blowed if I know where it comes from as I know his family back 3 generations!
