Big cleanup in the birdroom today. I assembled some new cages I got off ebay and set up another 6 pairs for breeding. The birds in the aviary are in peak condition and dying to partner up. I currently have 30 breeder cages in use.

In a nestbox with grey green opaline hen and a grey green normal cock split recessive....I have two chicks. One is a little yellow recessive pied and the other appears to be a grey normal

The recessive 796c6f31.jpg

 

and the grey 911a6d93.jpg

NOTE the "split to recessive" spot on his head ??

Two chicks out of the nest today....the grey green spangle in the nest with b*tch but I put it back. :wub: and one of the little lacewing chicks...way too soon....so it went back too.

Kaz,

 

the recessive bub looks fantastic! The budgies certainly are going absolutely crazy at the moment, aren't they. I have kissy, smoochy, partner preening budgies absolutely eveywhere.

I find it amazing that you can tell what a baby is even that early on... I can't wait to be able to do that in 20 years :(Laughing out loud): The babies are gorgeous...

Kaz, your photos are stunning... and your birds all look happy as ever. The chicks are looking great too!! I can't wait when those lacewings are fully feathered. :D

 

Do you have another thread with pictures of your aviary and bird room setup? I'm curious to see it, because it sounds really nice with the birds so content and spoiled.

I am currently amidst building a new birdoom and fights so I have reduced the flights from two large ones to just one large one and the birdroom has a bit too much congestion in right now until the new one goes up, so I wont be doing photos again until the new birdroom and new flights.

Some really nice birds you have there KAZ. Pitty I'm too far away to buy some of your culls as they would add to my birds features nicely. (I have to get up off my lazy butt & post some pictures one day)

Its a mauve BUT very very dark...almost slate like. I bought her for her dark factor and with certain pet type breeding birds in the aviary.

This is a cute little cinnamon green spangle hen that a top breeder gave me when he had had too many glasses of wine that afternoon. She was then 7 weeks old and from his top bloodlines. She is moulting and scruffy but will turn out okay.

This nice pair were in a breeder cage but the hen wouldnt play ball DSCF4440-1.jpgso after the budgie show this weekend I will find him another hen and put him down to breed with the new girl DSCF4443-1.jpg

I really believe your spangle markings on your chicks are getting more defined Kaz, they look wonderful

I think so because I don't remember them so defined I just love when they have such a contrast vs the lighter not so sharp markings.

I think I will have to pull this one out or remove the mother. I am not sure who is doing what but this poor thing DSCF4404.jpg

 

has just lost some more wing flights...pulled out and broken and bleeding.

I think I will put the chicks on the floor of the breeder cage and then remove the mother....just in case.

Kaz,

 

I was going to ask how your buff "feather duster" worked out. She is looking GREAT! I really like your cobalt/violet pair. Is that Bleu?

 

The first chick you posted earlier looks fantastic. Please remind me to visit that breeder when he is drinking. What wines does he like.. I'll bring extra! :D

 

 

Feathers.
