Pics Of "baby's" Babies

Recommended Posts

This is "Baby", she is the daughter of "Mellow" (see my other thread).

 

Baby surrogated one of Mellow's eggs and also an egg of another budgie, in addition to her own eggs. She has four healthy little chicks, but I have no idea, which chicks survived!! So it's a very mixed bunch. Oh, I forgot, I also put an egg from a hen I purchased and had in quarantine under her aswell. So, as a result, can't look anything into the 'breeding' of her little clutch, just enjoy watching them grow up!!

 

In my other thread I was talking about how Mellow, had produced a couple of DF Dom Pied, Baby is one of them. You can clearly see her iris rings in the photo below, and her recessive pied looking markings. Can somebody confirm, she is a DF dom pied for me please.

 

In the pics, you can clearly see two bubs, the other two are smaller and she didn't want to get off them.

Excellent, thankyou.

 

Can you tell the split recessive pied because of the small white spot on the back of it's head? If it's "split" does that mean it won't have recessive pied markings?

 

Also confirms that "Mellow" is definitely hiding dom pied.

That tiny spot ? YES...its very much a thing that indicates recessive pied inheritance. The dom pied could belong to Baby :D

She is gorgeous. Any of her babies will be Dom Pied, the others (non Dom Pied) will be fostered eggs as she will throw all Dom Pied babies herself.

Look forward to seeing them grow up

That makes sense and will help in guessing who's from who!!
