What Should I Pair Him With?

Recommended Posts

okay so I have never been overly attached to spangles but the other night MB gave me a little Spangle boy and while he has been in quarantine he really has stolen my heart. Being an aviary bird I expected him to be stand offishbut when I went to change their food over today he jumped on my hand and started rubbing it. I took him out and he sat on my shoulder while I was preparing the other budgies foods and kept trying to ear my earings. I think he knows I don't like Spangles so much so is sucking up to me! :rolleyes:

I call him Cloud and the reason he has a flat head is cause he stuck his head in the water bowl for some reason.

 

Anyway I just wanted suggestions on mutations that you think I should cross him with and what the chicks might look like. I do so like his blue tummy it really is that bright! Also is anyone has a hen that want to get rid of that they think would make him a nice girl friend in a years time (because I have planned out where I am going to breed what) then let me know.

 

Suggestions please.

I'm sure I could come up with a nice spangle girlfriend for him :lol: You just need to tell me if you want the blue spangles like he has or the black spangles like they are supposed to have :rolleyes: Do you want more skyblues or do you maybe want some violets and cobalts? Do you want yellowface babies? If we are talking a years time then maybe Ozzie's baby since they should be nice spangles :P

Wuth a yellow face you would get birds like Fiji :rolleyes: If you want to keep his blue I would pair him with a skyblue such as Pretty or in any of the other patterns that take your fancy. If you are after chicks wi particular markings then you need to be specific about what you want if it is only the colour then any skyblue will be fine. I have a yellowface version with the same brilliant blue in with a hen now and I am praying for babies from them soon so you never know :lol:

Hmmmm I think I want to keep his spangle wings and his colour to pass onto the chicks. Maybe we can have a look on the bird weekend. I do like the one you just put a picture of up however. Oh the colours and the choices! :budgiedance:

He is a spangle, identical to cloud but he is yellow face as well so the yellow comes through in his wings;)
