Sorry, I thought you were asking for opinions on how to pair them up. I guess I agreed with your thinking.

Ha ha thats okay cranberry (great minds think alike!) Sorry just a favourite quote!

I put the pieds together in hopes that I might get some pieds. but I like the other pairings. Might give it a go!

Pairing Rec Pies together,is not a good breeding move,if you

are trying to breed for show birds.A split rec to a rec or to

a normal.

Id leave the rec pieds together so you can get more rec pieds, like macka said its not done with show birds- but these arent show birds and you dont have a choice of 40 mates for it either. He would have realised this when he said it

 

Pair 2 you should get greywings- hen looks light grey too, if she isnt then maybe not lol

 

Good luck

okay here is my breeding topic for 2009:

 

PAIRS:

  1. Rascle and Cloud IMG_5009.jpgIMG_7334-1.jpg
  2. Butter and Sunny DSCF3693.jpgIMG_0007_1.jpg

 

3. Sky and Lady IMG_0015-2.jpg

 

 

So thats it.

They are all in breeding cages now as well as the other two (pepper and Kissy) whome I am not breeding as they are the brother and sister pair.

 

One question though about them.

would it be okay to use them as a foster pair if the need arose?

 

Well thats that,

Kate

Well the news at the budgie front: all of the abouve are in cages with nest boxes and are in condition. YAY sunny (rec pied) has been going in and out quite a bit which is pleasing. Lots of greens abnd good yummy seed. fresh water and loving care.

one question about the oats in the nestbox... when she kicks them out do I put them back in before she lays the eggs or what?

wait... my brother just came and told me there was an egg in one of the nestboxes but it might be in pepper's the one that doesn't have a mate. oooooops!
