Avalon House -The Fox Stud-Gb8-Show Birds

Recommended Posts

As most of you know i came here to this sight a breeder of pet size budgies

i tried to fit into them as many colours and combination's possible

but for thoughs of you that do not know me

 

let me introduce myself:

my name is Leeia fox

AKA genericblue or as my friends call me Gb

i am at the moment in time 38 years old

a mother of 3

apart from breed budgies i paint /draw/write/sloth about my home

im not one that needs much in my world to keep happy

yet i am one whom needs to have serenity in my world to function to my best ability

their for i chose to have a life of solitude --- bar a few breeders whom pop in and out to visit

(these i class as my friends )

i am defiantly not everybody's cup of tea

and well it goes both ways in most cases

altogether i would say i am slightly different with a twist of madness that most don't understand or get

so at times find myself standing alone wondering why i feel stupid for just being me

and because of this i rarely go out

that was when i decided to start to breed budgies again to give me something i loved to do and something other than the children to look after

i always wanted to breed show birds but still loved the colours of the pet sized budgies so i decided to incorporate the two to see if i could breed a pet type budgie with some aspects of show quality yet maintain all the wonder of the colour and vibrancy the pet birds had

so in 2006 i got my bag and money and headed down to my local pet store where i purchased 6 birds for $ 160.00

(if only then id known what i know know i would of saved heaps of money and had better quality birds than i had brought which is why i am sharing with you guys all this in the hope you can not follow my mistakes and obtain information of use to be able to become a breeder of show quality birds and maintain a healthy vibrant stud if you ever choose , and for you that do already hopefully anything i write /record can help you out if a simular problem a cures or just learn something you may not of known as i know im still learning every day )

 

the birds i had brought were

a sky blue cock bird o6 club rung ( whom turned out to be split for Opaline and rec pied )

a mauve normal hen 07 club rung (no splits that i ever came across)

a sky blue cinnamon rec pied hen pet sized but very big chest and great stance perfect pied marks of 25 percent wing coverage

a golden-face cobalt turned out /rec pied / Opaline a pet bird cock

and a mauve cinnamon spangle hen pet (got for colour )

last but not least a sky-violet df dominant pied cinnamon Opaline hen

 

i already had two cock birds at home id gotten from my uncle

a golden faced violet green rec pied opaline spangle

and his brother

a golden face sky blue /op rec pied normal

 

so the start of my breeding began

at first i had only two breeding units

and a small 4 by 6 flight

i brought a 2 meter by 90 x 90 indoor /out door aviary from the warehouse and put 2 birds in their of each sex

and paired my others in the two units i had

 

i started off with

a mauve cinnamon spangle

x my golden faced cobalt /op cock (at this time i did not know about his rec pied gene }

from these birds i breed

 

7 chicks

3 mauve golden face Opaline chick 2 hens and a cock

this told me that my hen although did not look it was in fact Opaline her self as other wize i would not of been able to achieve a Opaline cock bird

as shown bellow

i also got two sky blue Opaline golden faces on was spangle( a cock and hen )

and a spangle mauve hen

and a violet cobalt ( visual violet )cock

 

of these i sold all but a golden face sky Opaline hen

and the mauve hen spangle

 

i will continue with more latter as this will be a very long page if i do not break it up

ill go search for some pics of my original birds

i hope your all enjoying this

Glad to see you opening up on here, and being very introspective and self-analytical.

 

I am a work in progress, so it will take some time before I do my own version of self-analytical publication.

 

Good job though.

Good to see you open Gb, a nice read about you, very spot on too. I am very much like you in the way I like the solitude and only have a few close friends that I choose to be in my life.

Gb you have come along way since you started.

 

God help you all if I do one. GB has met me.lol

lol oh dave i love it how i never understand what any of the big words u use mean :}

 

i just though id start a from the beginning to where i am now so it may help other young breeders

or older ones

if i start from beginning i can also remember stuff i have lost from just my own recall as i find when i write or talk about my life and things ive done i remember things that to just try and recall i could not do

 

im very happy for any questions so on

this is about starting a stud be it pet or show

im starting where i started and will work my way through to where i am no

this also will keep me interested in it as i do tend to get here with good intentions yet become bored myself with my own work

im easily bored

 

also i will explain each result in the pairings which will help others better understand some their pairing choices with the pets

as its all about colour and variety with bets

and i will be sharing my choices with my snowbirds why i paired them when i get to them

thanks for reading

oh splat you crack me up

this is not self confession its meant to just give a glimpse into my love of birds and the things that people may not know or see behind the doors

im hoping to share all i can filter through my small mind :}

and im going to do best to take lots of pics when i get to the snowbirds

 

(i think your world would have a good read about it )

 

one thing i did leave out is

i stopped breeding at 17

and whent on to have children and alot of other things happend in my life

then when i found my feet again

then in 2001 i had my big accident that left me unable to be employed or able to do many things

took few years from then to 2003 where

i tried to re start in 2003 but due to unforeseen circumstances was unable to and had to give up my birds id gotten and aviary breeding cabinets the lot

it wasn't till 2006 that my life seemed some what more stable

and i really needed some thing to help me ground and gain rutine

breeding budgies gives me both these things :} infact

im lost with out it :blush:

now i realize i have made a mistake already i only realized as when i was revising my thoughts i realized i could not of got the results i got from this next pairing unless the hen was an Opaline but i must admit that i always had trouble recognizing Opaline in birds still do at times :}

so just thought id mention it

so you all can see why all of a sudden my normal hen

turned Opaline and managed to have a Opaline cock in the clutch (you will see a few blunders as my mind retraces things after all this is all just from memorial recall something than i had damaged in my accident and im hopping doing this will also help kick start }

so next pairing...........

 

So my second pairing was the sky blue/ rec pied / opaline club rung cock bird and the mauve Opaline hen also club rung my aim was to breed a few bigger show stock size birds so i could add them to my pet size birds and intergrade their looks and try and achieve a bigger colourful pet bird that looked as fancy as the show birds but in a mini me :}

I don’t have a picture of the mauve hen but she just to me at time looked grey and wasn’t until i breed her that i realized she was mauve

I got from this clutch only two chicks a Grey normal cock bird And a Opaline mauve grey just like mum Which i kept he was the start i wanted He had the look i liked and length nice big spots as well

pics to come of him :} and dad

well i paired him the next year in o7 late he was only 6 months then (remembering i was unaware of the age you should breed birds i was brought up it was 6 to 9 months it was not until i joined here in 2008 i was informed this was incorrect and all the reasons why }

 

which are many ....

bone structure damage to hen do to not enough calcium as egg sucks body of this when one being formed

... egg binding so on .. to young to feed sufficiently yarda yarda yard its all her on this sight :)

 

 

getting back to it from this pairing i produced some lovely chicks in 2008 (when i learn t he had been breed to early as was his hen whom was only around 9 months , i however did take advice from here and breed my birds now at a year old )

 

ill get pics of chicks latter

for today im finished got to go do the mother thing

and my birds before night fall :} adios amigos :P till next update of how i build my flock :) (i want the grinning face back :( }

Loving reading about your experiences GB!

 

So many of us (me included) started from exactly the same place - buying pretty birds from the pet shop - so it's nice to hear the details of someone else's experiences.

 

Keep going!

so i have been looking for the pictures of the chicks from these two birds

the Opaline mauve grey and a sky-violet df dom pied cinnamon hen

what i forgot to mention was that after their first clutch

i realized that they were both split to receive pied

 

this was only realized as i could not work out why some my chicks looked dom but had no iris rings and the fact that the father to the mauve grey went on to produce some lovely rec pied chicks when paired to my sky blue rec pied hen

 

this giving my grey mauve a 25 percent chance of receiving this gene from his father

 

The Recessive Pied

i did not know that the birds actually carried the pied genes separately i always thought that in breeding a dom and a rec pied you were making a combination the two and in turn breeding a combination pied

 

back in toughs years i didnt have a big grasp on my genetics anymore due to my accident id lost a lot of brain stuff so

it was here this sight that helped me re gain my genetic foresight

 

when i ended up with a clutch of rec pieds and doms i was a tad stumped

as most were saying my df dom was a rec pied but then others said no she was a dom (weve all had this from time to time but i was patient and well in the end i think it was rip kaz and nev that confirmed her being df dom i was so relived as i was thinking my goodness have i gotten so bad i cant even recognize variety anymore :{

rip and nev then explained about combination pieds

combination pieds by nev

http://forums.budgiebreeders.asn.au/index.php?showtopic=26947

 

and as they did the brain kicked in and i was back in business working out my birds genetics again so i could work them to my advantage

i was sooooooo pleased my df dom was / rec pied as was my Opaline mauve as it cut one whole year out of my breeding

trying to make splits

 

here is a few pics of the chicks the df dom and mauve had

a sky violet opaline dom pied cock bird / cinnamon which i kept

here is a mauve hen also a dom from these two

and a grey

and their rec pied chick's

a cobalt which i kept

DSC06645.jpg

and a sky which i cant find picture of :{

which confirmed my df dom she was not cobalt as i had first thought

and that both were split rec pied

 

 

 

so you all know i breed in breeding units as i do today these birds so no muddling up of mum n dads here

 

 

 

 

here is on of the sky blue /op/rec pieds chicks with ths sky blue rec pied hen

it was a half brother to the mauve grey on dads side

BILD2789.jpg

 

dad had 4 rec pied sky blues and a Opaline sky blue normal hen all up

 

i only kept this one shown

Very interesting read GB.

And I can relate to some of what your saying.

I'm watching this topic for sure.

 

Being a new breeder I find this very interesting and helpful at the same time.

 

How did you get such big beautiful birds so quickly GB? lol They're gorgeous

 

Also, I did not know you were in an accident, but that answers alot of my questions. I envied you for you always seemed to be out with your birds and I was wondering how you did that.

I have 3 jobs and can only spend about 10 mins at a time in my aviary on some days which sucks lol

I take advantage of the days I don't have anything planned :P

 

Can I ask, just out of curiosity, why is it called avalon house? Does it mean something? :)

hi maddy

well to answer your question about the size of my birds

i breed show stock culls from pet shop /breeder

to my pet sized hens but i was very picky about the hens having some bulk to them or good stance or variety

 

as for you question about why my aviary's called Avalon house

 

here is the awnser to your question in which you can also find in my link in my siggy

newchickontheblock along with not alot of stuff about my show birds and my experiences with them

im in middle of trying to redo it but as i dont know how to work the web sight its not really happening how i wanted :{ oh well if i keep persisting maybe one day ill finally get it :}

Avalon house :my aviary,about its chosen name

Avalon is from a Celtic word meaning 'apple.' The apple-tree is a Celtic Tree of Life, the upholder of the Worlds above and below, the source of all spiritual sustenance.

 

In Irish tales, it grows upon an Other-world island and bears the fruit of immortality which emits a heavenly fragrance, able to satisfy all hunger, heal all ills, and yet always remains whole.

Avalon is the Inner Temple of the Celtic and British Mysteries, a landscape of the soul, a country of the heart. It is the land which the poet and mystic see in vision, where the artist and musician find inspiration; where the soul goes for healing and spiritual refreshment: a timeless land of power and mystery that offers initiation and enlightenment to all those that embark upon the inner voyage.

 

Avalon does not exist in the dimensions of time and space. It lies within the Other-world, a place that the Celts have always taught us exists now and always, nowhere and everywhere, in the ‘thin’ places of the landscape, within the cracks of everyday life. As an archetype, or blueprint, of cosmic order and harmony, it distills the qualities of power, beauty and wisdom, sorely needed in our world today.

 

my aviary is to me a place of magic and spiritual healing some where to retreat to when the world turns sour their is an order and harmony about it , it is filled with beauty and a peacefulness out of this world where i can engage in a dream and become lost

 

it is my refuge ,......my tranquility and to have, breed and show birds is my dream .

 

 

 

 

i plan to work my way from my pets to show and how and what made me decide to make the move over

and also the heart ache and cost joys of my first good birds and sadness of a lose of a few good birds

i had 40 pet /show birds i had breed by 2009 when i joined my club it was hard to sell these

and i still dearly miss them

most birds were sold on here to members

or people looking on here to buy birds

 

i think you all get the gist of my up sizing my pet size stock with a few show features to see if i could mannage to do it

or if i was wasting my time considering even beginning to breed show stock

so ill post some random pics of all the pet and / show birds i have for you to see

if anyone has any questions on how i got what birds ill be happy to recall the pairings i made to achieve them

as theirs a few birds i breed i do remember them all though :} which just shows you how much im proportionate breeding i keep all my records in my head and can go back for the past 5 years to them with just the chick to look at

 

ill post some pics tomorrow as im kind of slothing about now and honestly cant be bothered with the stress of trying to work photo-bucket

however i really couldnt be bothered with it

all chicks came out white faced and all become yf little-budgies has mum dad and two chicks however im not sure if they are all still alive so never really got to see if anything came from it

i think its time for the show bird side of things

 

 

i decided to go with my friend kazzy to look at a bird show

to be honest i dont remember if it was a show or a selection night to be honest all i know is it was in gippsland

 

when we arrived we looked in and their was birds and men everywhere

we contemplated walking away as it was very stuffy looking clicky type look with groups of men huddled around the place

but as we were about to turn to leave someone spotted us

they waved at us and we smiled and waved back as we decided that dam we cant be rude now were were seen so we approached talking to each other through open smiles about not staying to long when were reached the person who had noticed us and greeted us he introduced himself

as did we back

he questioned us with quiet normal questions like

did we breed birds and were we interested in breeding birds for showing ext ext he showed us around all the birds asking us questions and as we answered and asked him many back he was quiet pleasant and took time to listen to my nervous jargon

i pointed out around 19 birds that really took my eye and asked to whom the belonged

it was quiet funny as every bird bar around one or two was actually breed by him or his two brothers

right then i knew whom i would be asking regarding stock if i actually decided to move into the showing world

 

after we left he suggested we come along see what the meeting nights were like

i expressed i wasn't quiet ready yet but id been trying to maintain some kind of look in my birds that leaned toward some show size and features

but that my birds were canary's compared to the ones id see that day

as he was in my area for work the following week he came passed to see my small flock

lol

i was pretty embarrassed but he did help me with what i asked

you see id just resently brought my first few show birds from here( from splat) and a shop in town he had came over to assess if they were actually any good for me

out of the 5 birds i had

a grey violet boy from splat and a diluted grey green boy my mauve lacewing boy and a fantastic fallow i still kick myself for selling to this day

and a greywing skyblue

all birds were okay but he explained to me that show birds i would need to concentrate on only one or two variety not lots as i had just cause they were pretty

 

so with him leaving i decided to go to next club meeting kazzy decided to join me

 

we went to around 6 months to a year worth of meetings till we joined and we were not to welcomed at first so it felt

i almost didnt stick it out and was going to stick to pets but the same person encouraged me to just breed birds i liked enjoy my birds show them and basiclly turn my ears n eyes from everything else

it was hard and i felt very awkward in a place that i actually belived maybe id fit in

 

as time went by things changed our club changed and aditudes changed

i had help from outta club members from other clubs and i was encouraged that i had what it takes (something im still not 100 percent sure of but its nice that others see something i may miss )

my first birds were culls from my local pet shop

some of what i still have and breed with today

some my best birds to be honest

although i have bred for two years now this year is my first year i could use a few my own birds ive breed

however as i culled most keeping only a few witch only two stand alive and here now im going to still have to wait till 2012 to actually kick my breeding off

 

i decided to breed albino and lacewings

my first auction was 2009 i brought home 4 birds

a albino cock

a split albino cock in grey

and a cinnamon hen sky blue spangle

and a opaline grey green violet yf boy

 

my first birds i sold (bar my mauve cinn/lacewing i still have him ) and my grey splat cock i stupidly lost one day when i was in my own world he was just coming 6 months i was so so so sad :{

after that i was very lucky to grab hold of 4 birds from our nubbly 5 all / lacewing and one lacewing cock

 

okay so its picture time ... ill go find pics of the birds i brought at auction and from splat and nubby may take a bit so dont wait with baited breath :}

that i brought to show you all

here is what i found im sure i have better but where in this computer is the question

so i decided im going to post pics as i com a crossed them of any bird i may of mentioned already and a reference to whom they are so you can try in hopefully keep up

 

as i mentioned i went to the gippsland bird auction and i managed to come home with 4 really good starter birds for only $170.00

three of which i still to this day have and one i passed to a good friend as they had better use for him than me he was a grey green violet yf opaline and i loved him to bits

he was a borg n skivington breed bird that i got for $40

he has lovely chicks however i only ever kept one out of the 23 chicks he produced me their was one from his last clutch i would of kept

but as i was giving him away and had not kept any but one yf sky-violet cock bird i decided to give him and the whole clutch n his hen included

as so they had a head start with him

 

here he is bellow

this hen i got not long after my auction buys she was $50.00 she is a really good hen she was best hen i had in sence that she lay 7 eggs and always hatched everyone she feed them all full and if i needed to foster any for a day or two till another nest was available she would she hatched to date and she sat beautiful was not nasty and never ever plucked her chicks also very nice

so why did i part with her .....as i said to help someone else out in the fancy

few their chicks first round

now moving on to the birds i have still to this day

 

this next boy is a grey normal / albino

turns out hes also / Opaline and cinnamon

at first i was like oh great but now im finding it actually a bit useful

i just have to be careful what i pair him to so i dont get a big chance of cinnamon albino hens coming through of which i have only got one from him i think but she was worth keeping regardless

ive breed from him 13 chicks of which i have only kept 3 the only reason for this is as im only keeping albino hens and any possible split or split cocks from him

his chicks are amazing and mostly always hens however mostly cinnamon and opaline spangles im going to change that next time i use him by pairring him to a albino hen masking grey hopefully my rate of albinos go up suffused cin or other wont matter so long as its albino i can use it

 

her he is when i got him

here is his first daughter

she was to the grey hen above that i gave away with the grey green Opaline their was two other chicks in the clutch a cinnamon sky blue Opaline hen and a grey cinnamon Opaline hen both culled as when i started out i absolutely did not want cinnamon hens

when i think about it i have culled many a good bird stock or self breed
