If you look at that young one now, can you tell if she will be flecked?

 

Does much flecking disappear or appear in between moults?

Too soon Dave. As babies have barring you cannot see future flecking.

Oh okay,

 

I didn't know if you could look at a young birds barring, and see if the barring was straigh or not, and if that could indicate any flecking or not? All speculation on my behalf

 

What about the second question? Just in general?

Just a question, is flecking good to have or is it better to have without the flecking when breeding? cause one of my hen's has got it to.

Flecking is NOT a desirable trait in a show bird.

It depends how heavy it is but basically it's a fault on the show bench and if you can minimize or eradicate it is better. ;)

Matt when mating up,it is best if you dont have to use flecked birds.But if you do,make sure one of the pr

has a nice clear top & the chicks from that mating,make sure you don't mate back to a flecked bird. ;)

Her mate is a beautifull normal light green split for blue and albino.

and the flecked hen is a violet opaline both show type's the father is very long and has got some size to him.

although the hen has lost alot more fleck then she had when sitting her egg's.

 

she has 4 baby's right now

1. normal sky blue(he's frigen huge!)

2. normal violet(possible opaline)

3. normal light green possibly opaline also

4. red-eyed pure white albino.

Hey Kaz

 

Lovely baby Uno! She and her Mum should pass on some lovely features to your stud! Also I'm just going to pick on what you said a little bit..... "split for blue" well she technically IS a blue but with the grey gene added - probably a little more correct and a little less confusing to say she is single factor grey. Just me being pedantic :huh:

 

Oh and I looooove the upturned icecream container as a refuge idea - I'll have to use that one myself instead of trying to make little wooden shelters and having a real struggle cleaning them.

:huh: Yeah about the split for blue thing....I just mean I will get blues from her with a blue budgie .......other than another grey :D

 

Ken keeps wondering where all the icecream containers keep going...I have a secret stash in the birdroom :D
