congrads

the spangle seems to me to look like it could be holding a rececive pie genetics (the second picture at start of post)

although if is no babys will be unless father is split recesive

dont quote me on it but a test mating would tell for sure

 

bubs doing great good to see interested in the fellow mix have nice few fellows myself although one just for looks as is old male

well things have gone quite pear shaped with my birds in the last 2 weeks since the babies fledged .

 

the 2 youngest in the spangle nest died suddenly after being apparrently healthy . then the spangle died this monday . so im left with the 2 albino chicks from that nest and they are going really well , feeding on their own and flying about etc ,

 

in the fallow nest , the sky blue normal i found wringing wet and dead on friday morning . i suspect it took a bath in the water dish and struggled to get out . the cobolt normal cock and sky blue opaline hen are going really well , eating well on their own and capable of flight .

 

the baby cobolt cock flew off on tuesday when i got him out for handling , luckily i caught him at the end of my deck when he flew into the jasmine and didnt know where to go . my fallow hen has somehow injured her leg so i probably wont breed from her again unless it heals .

 

well i will add some pics of how the rest of the bubs turned out hopefully on the weekend . and for those interested the bubs are ready to got to new homes now .
