Omelette's Babies

Recommended Posts

see now. omelette's 2 involves laying 22 eggs and raising what, 16 of them or so?

 

What if a bird only has 1 or 2 young per year?

If only one or two young, then maybe the hen is getting old, or the cock, or timing isnt right. But if only 1 or 2 then try another clutch.

the greywing 004-10.jpg

Taken from an article on greywings by Ghalib Al-Nasser

 

quote.............Also because of that recessive gene, a bird can be carrying the Greywing factor in a hidden form for many generations.

 

This is why on occasions a Greywing can pop up in a nest of normal parents in a stud that does not carry this mutation and the fancier is at a loss as to how the Greywing appeared.

 

I am more interested now as I have a dilute hen paired to a greywing cock and she is sitting on 8 fertile eggs. I am trying to work out whats what with greywings. :thankyou:

According to Ghalib

 

If a Greywing is paired to a Dilute all the chicks will be Greywings but split for Dilutes. The same will apply if a Clearwing is paired to a Dilute. But something quite unusual happens when pairing a Greywing to a Clearwing. Here the resulting young will posses the combination of both varieties in one bird and are called "full bodied colour Greywings". This means that they have the full body colour of the Clearwing variety with the Greywing marking; quite an unusual and beautiful coloration. These full-bodied colour Greywings are split for Clearwing but cannot be split for Dilutes.

 

If a full-bodied colour Greywing is paired to a Dilute then the results will be 50% Greywings and 50% Clearwings all split for Dilutes. However, if a full bodied colour Greywing is paired to either a Greywing or a Clearwing then the results will be 50% full bodied colour Greywings and 50% Greywings (or Clearwings).
