Pairing In The Breeding Cabinet


**KAZ**

Recommended Posts

It's always sad :D when a chick dies but trying to look on the bright side, 8 is a little easier than 9 for Trooper, and it the long run the remaining chicks may benefit. Please don't think I'm sick but its a little like organ donation its not quite so bad (still bad) when others may benefit.

It's that in bad taste?

Hope I haven't offended anyone!

Fifth chick hatched through the night...well, almost hatched. It rear end never made it out of the shell. I found it dead half out of its shell this morning.

Possibly stressed by the cock. But no pooey bottom or any obvious signs of illness. No eggbinding. Two eggs proved infertile.

Aughhh! What rotten luck. :)

 

Mind you I lost a JK cobalt hen early in the season. Just dropped off the perch, no warning, no rhyme nor reason. :wub:

 

I'm telling you budgie breeding is NOT for the fainthearted!

Probably more than the hen can cope with anyway. If any more hatch and are fine they will be fostered.

Sorry to hear about the little ones that didn't make it. Did you get a chance to see if they were cinnamon or not? Good luck for the rest of the batch, I'm keeping my eye on this thread :P

No cinnamons so far in this batch, living or dead....so that makes the dad pure and not split cinnamon ?

Too early to tell if dad is pure as all the chicks could be male. If there are females in the clutch then he is not split.

I can already see the males in this clutch...I also have the dads pedigree somewhere ( Ken has messed with my paperwork and I need to search for it ) and in the pedigree it will say about cinnamon or not.

you are so clever at seeing the genders of the really young chicks!! :D

If you have normal females then the male cant be split can he.

If a cock is a sex-linked mutation, he will only have daughters of that mutation. But if he is only split he can have Normal hens as well as sex-linked ones.

None of the chicks had plum eyes, so I would say I have all normal greens or maybe some opalines.
