The batteries are charging.

 

As for me relaxing, I had my own X-rays and specialist appointments last night and today thank you. No relaxing, I was being jabbed and poked and the like. Not enjoyable at all.

Now I am not sure I got everyone in the pics, so i will go take some more in a few minutes.

 

I will try to explain all the birds. Some are not the best pics and they would look better in a show cage, but until i get some, this is all I have.

 

This is a group of boys.

 

The grey cinnamon wing is a Henry George bird, as is the sky blue cinnamon wing, there is a grey opaline I know little about, a Fran McLaughlin Grey Green and a green Dominant pied from Kaz

Henry George birds from Fran McLaughlin

The grey is a Cec Gearing 08 cock who Cec told me has excellent bloodlines, the grey green cinnamon wing is from Hans Sibum,he was a gift. An 04 bird but a very good father. The grey bird furthest away is split clearwing from Gina House

The old man looks a bit ruffled in this picture. Like I said, the pics do not do them justice

The blue bird at the front there is my best looking bird. He is a Cec Gearing 07 Sky blue cock. majestic bird

The Cinnamon Wing Light Green Hen came from Hans and the Grey Green hen from Cec Gearing

This clearwing is one of 2 very similar clearwings I got from Gina House and the lutino I got from our own Libby

That is either dumb or dumber on the left and the sky blue cinnamon boy on the right has a good boofy head but is a bit stumpy.

Once more either Dumb or Dumber. I got them from Hans. Not the biggest birds, but great length

Green opaline cock I purchased off Hans. He is an amazing colour and has a very good clear V

Cec Gearing bred grey green opaline spangle. She is only 3 months old. Her brother is brilliant. Good genes - sorry about the dark picture, i will try to get another one tomorrow

Last pics so now they have all been photographed.

 

my two lutinos - one is a Cec Gearing bird whose brother finished 4th at the Nationals so some very good bloodlines and the other is from Libby. My best opaline green boy is split Lutino so it should pair well with the Cec Gearing bird later on.

A clearer picture of my 3 month old grey green spangle I purchased off Cec Gearing

cggrygrnsp.jpg

 

The Gearing Lutino is a bit fuzzy in the picture, but it does give you a good idea of her shape, plus you see the 2 clearwings in the background, plus the grey green opaline I purchased from Cec.

Finally a picture of Dumb and Dumber together. I realised I had not included a picture of the boys together.

So there we have it - all birds photographed

thanks

 

yes, they all seem really good. It will be a while before they can stretch their wings though. Feel sorry for them, but rules are rules, especially when it comes to quarantine.

LOL - thanks mate. I thought of showing him upside down

 

I am glad it has been a great read for you. The first ever thread I truly followed on here was yours about building your new aviary. I used to log on every day and hope there was another installment. In fact, I lay some of the blame for me getting hooked on budgies solely on that thread- :(

 

I cannot wait for breeding season. I would love your feedback when I work out my pairs.
