Babies From My 1st Ever Breeding Season

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, it's been quite a while. Just to refresh I inherited all my birds due to the passing of my dad, the original breeder. I since have gotten my license and thanks to all of your helpful advice/tips I have managed to come up with some beautiful babies. Just wanted to share a few and please feel free to have a peek at my album on photobucket, I have several sub albums of all the birds I breed/raise.

Here are a few photos of some of the babies from the first round, setting up for the second round now. Different birds of course! Enjoy and please look for me in the breeding/mutation section as I have more questions on pairings. Again thanks and hope you enjoy these pics of my lil beauties!

This first picture of the red eye lacewing and greys, they are all from same clutch

Welcome :laughter: Good to see you and your birds again ...they are lovely :D

 

One question....on your site you have a blue bird with a head patch and call it a dominant pied but it has no pied characteristics in the flights or body. That would make it a normal blue split for recessive pied ?

Thankyou for the information. Was told differently and I really am still learning. Would like to get some dom. pieds but don't have any in the flock. I believe someone told me that he was split to dom pied because the spot was so big. Like I said though I have alot to learn still, even still figuring out what all my originals are split to, as never have found my dad's records. Thankyou for the warm welcome back though. Plan on trying to stay in touch this time. Just so easy to get caught up in the birds, kids, hubby,dog, rabbit, and widowed mom, not enough time for the net. LOL

Dominant pieds are a dominant gene. At least one of the parents has to be a dominant pied to get a chick that is one. Being a dominant gene no bird can be split for dominant pied. It either is one or it isnt. In this case it isnt. But when old enough paired with a recessive pied will ensure you have a decent amount of recessive pieds in your nestbox in the future :laughter:

 

Hope you stick around awhile. Great seeing your birds again :D

Cheers
