**KAZ**

Current Batch Of Budgie Babies

Recommended Posts

Another big baby, but not as big as thundra. I would name him thunda, to go with thundra :sadsorry:

 

I like how that little one in the last photo is standing pretty much bolt upright. Keep the head up, shoulders back, back straight. Very catwalk, supermodel style. I think a name would be somethign related to a catwalk - maybe Elle if it is a girl, zoolander if it is boy - :P

She is from one of Daz's hens :P

 

Forced out of the nestbox by the growing THUNDRA :)

The picture in your signature is a good indication of what the difference is.

 

Pet type to showbird is the equivalent of showbird to thundra at the moment - :sadsorry:

Kaz, I reckon the Grey is going to be a very nice bird.

 

Also, is there any chance of posting pics of the parents of the Blue above, also very nice. Apologies if you already have somewhere in here.

The grey is from a Clint Ault hen and a Gary Watson Cec Gearing cock. Got 2nd in UBC at the show.

okay thanks. I remember the Blue hen (mother) now, you got her very young at an Auction a while ago. Looks like the parents have just "clicked" to get the young Blue.

The parents are on eggs again. I have two half sisters........the mother of this one and another. The large blue cobalt boy I recently bought at auction is related to the sisters as well.

Thanks for posting the pics Kaz. Gee, the grey sibling is about what I would have expected from that pair. Both parents have a bit of something but neither is outstanding in any way. However young "Thundra" is a ripper. Congratulations!

I suppose when we look at birds, we are judging them solely on what we see, as we may not know there bloodlines. I once bought two birds off Cec Gearing. Kaz and Renee were both there that day. The blue bird - Caesar - was the better looking bird, but Cec told me that the grey bird - Bruticus - would produce better offspring due to his genes.

 

I suppose that is the difference between good breeders who will go on to great success, and others who simply critique what they see. A good breeder has a plan to produce good young, where other breeders work solely on the visual, without considering the line they come from.

It isnt all about visual as long as you know the backgrounds.

 

What do you think of this pairing ?

Pretty ordinary right ?

 

 

Produced this chick

and I think he is doing okay for barely 6 months old.

 

This baby was bought at an auction at 8-12 weeks old.

DSCF6354.jpg

I was told by the breeder to specifically buy it for what the breeder knew to be excellent bloodlines. Noone else recognised its potential and I bought it for $20 !

She is the mother to this one

so its not all about VISUAL stuff.

I agree. Otherwise we would never expect something as simple as getting a Blue from two Greens.

 

In the first pair, I think the cock has plenty of qualities and looks pretty damn nice! But in an earlier picture he doesn't look as good as that. In the picture above the hen looks very ordinary, but it is only one picture. I don't know what she looks like in real life. But she is obviously carrying the right genes even if possibly not showing them.

 

I think you are progressing very well with your birds Kaz, I can see a big improvement over last year's chicks. And I think a lot of it comes down to understanding your birds. Well done.

The hen does look that ordinary...but she carries Cec Gearing bloodlines.

you make me smile again kazz this shows me my birds are good and that i will succeed with my challange ahead beky hen or not my birds will produce quality i always looked at genetics and then vishual but been doing bit of both to be safe of late

may just add you are going places quickly your birds have improved massive since i joined last year the sight :D

 

its good practace to any one looking at getting birds to see if you can veiw as many related birds possable be fore saying yes or no to a purchuse this helps to verafy if the birds genetics are potant or not sometimes the smaller not so good bird is the better bird so long as the genetic make up is their put with a nother geneticly ballanced bird out comes are usually always a welcomed suprize :hug:

Isnt the rule about buying show type birds to buy the lesser brothers and sisters of the buff showy looking birds as they carry the same genes ? These birds I have bred show that theory works.

You are producing stunning chicks with your pairs Kaz! You are very talented with your pairing and i totally agree that a lot of features are recessive genes which is how you can get a beautiful chick from parents :hug:
