Thank you all :( .

I was really lucky today to be able to take these photos....I checked the nest at the right time and ran inside to get my camera and macro lense. It was sunny today so babies were nice and warm and the light was great. I didn't want to use the flash and scare the hen. She was very friendly and relaxed and even fed the babies while I was taking photos.

:)

Yes, GB, it is the lacewing nest . He is very fertile...the hen layed 5 eggs and all 5 hatched! All have red eyes. So boys will be albinos/lacewings and girls will be lacewings.

 

This is the father of the chicks: Sherbert. He is a nubbly bird.

Thank you, they are really great parents and I will take some more photos of the young growing up in the coming weeks. The oldest chick is just about to open it's little red eyes....very sweet...and they are so big and fat.

He was a great buy. Thank you, GB and nubbly5. I might keep 2 of the babies and sell the others. I will let you know before I sell them. The mum is a show type, but not show quality....he probably deserves a bigger and better hen, but he was very shy and not very interested in hens at all so I am happy that he liked Sheila. :blink:

yes :P , he really was scared of all the hens. first i put him in the breeding cage with a pet type cinnamon hen but she was not interested, so i put sheila in and a couple of days later i saw him feeding her.

thank you for the offer regarding a bigger hen, i really appreciate it, but as i am not getting into showing at this stage the small size doesn't worry me.

i will take some more photos of the chicks on the weekend...they are growing so fast.

your lovely person

i thought about it and if you want to come for a drive the yf violet opaline/lacewing is yours

so hes everything you want in one bird

and will be so much more special to you than me as i can get all the mutations i want again i have the right pairings to do so

im sure you do too but will cut out a year off your plan im sure :D hes coming out nice lovely mask one spots dropped down its deep but hes more a color breeding bird not show breeding

i know you will love him so ... im clossing my eyes gritting teeth and saying

Thank you Kazzy. It is a SLR camera...Olympus E420 with a 35mm macro lense. It is one of the "cheaper" SLRs, but takes great photos.

No problem GB. I can understand that....he must be very special to you as he is the only chick you got from the hen and maybe he flew to you to say that he wants to stay with you. I probably should wait before I get any new birds anyway.....wait and see what the spring breeding season will bring. I got so many new pairs to try out this spring. Edited by lealotta

And here the two oldest chicks - Carl and Carly. They both hatched on Monday, 12 April:

Wow! What a box full of babies you have! I also breed lacewings and albinos. Yep. I agree. You definitely have a lacewing there on the left. It will be a hen too! Can't wait to see photos of them feathering. :D

:gday: I am very excited and so happy that Sheila and Sherbert are doing such a great job looking after the babies. I also got 4 babies in another nest (mum is creamino and dad a green spangle/albino - two of the chicks have red eyes as well).

Kazzy, I had a look at your fabulous aviary....it looks fantastic! Do you breed for show or just pet types?

That's great. I was thinking about breeding for show, but I think I will just breed big pet types for a bit longer as I enjoy combining all the mutations and colors too much.

:hmm: A quick update ^_^ :

The 5 chicks did lots of growing this week. The two oldest, Carl+Carly, have almost all their feathers now and look very cute. I think I've got 3 Albinos and 2 Lacewings in this nest. The youngest one seems to be a lacewing.

I will take some more photos tomorrow/Saturday.
