My First Cabinet Pair


Recommended Posts

Fluro and Missy paired up in the aviary and she laid two eggs, but I didnt want anymore clutches in the aviary. I brought them in, with the eggs. I dont think she sat well on those eggs, after being moved and working out her new home. A week later though, she started laying again. She has 6 eggs in total, but I am guessing 3 will hatch with any luck. Her first baby came yesterday. I was so pleased. She is being a very attentive mummy and Fluro is being a wonderful dad. I didnt choose to pair them up, so it will be very interesting to see what colourings the babies are. Fluro is a light green spangle and Missy is an opaline violet (though the pictures dont show her as being violet). Im not fussed about the babies colour, I like the idea they chose each other and Fluro is quite a nice type of bird.

This is Fluro

Missy (I dont know why, but for some reason I dont have any aviary pics of her and I have aviary pics of most of my birds, so this isnt a great picture of her, taken in the breeding cabinet)

A nice pair Sunnie, yes Fluro is a nice looking bird with wide forehead, if he’s split for Blue you should get some Blues & Greens if not only Greens & something like 50% Spangle, some Normals, Spangle Opaline & of course like you say maybe some surprises. Good luck.

Thanks all for the lovely comments :)

Thank you Norm for giving me some kind of idea of what they will produce. A friend/breeder gave me Fluro for my birthday in January, I have just emailed her to see if she can let me know what his parents were, as Im curious now to know whether he is split to blue.

Congrats on your first (of many) bubs. What a sweetie. I hope all goes well with the rest of your eggs. They make a cute couple and I can't wait to see the results. I love it when they pair up on their own! :)

that is great that 3 have hatched for you. They grow so quickly, it is amazing the difference between the eldest and youngest.

Congrats, so i am guessing that only 3 were fertile

Yeah, but that was my guess and three is a good number :D

Updated piccies. All blue series babies and I think the first two are going to be spangles? Maybe the last will be opaline like mum, I have no idea yet, but they are doing really well :wub:

They are looking great Sunnie...maybe the last one might be a Normal. It's head looks a little too dark for an Oplaine.

Two spangles and a normal i'd say as opalines should have clear white down :wub:
