GB when I first saw your albino cock I thought he could be a mop.

But I think he's just a monster of a bird for only 25 days old.

Hope he comes on strong for you, because he does look like a cracker.

is but one baby hun

although hes not out the nest yet so may not make it to breeding age the chances are he will but theirs always the possibility of losings him

well if im going to get anywhere i have to get 7th at least next shields in albino young birds

and 6th in ubc lacewing

or my birds have not improved

going to be lots of work and very thoughtful breeding involved

I'm just looking at positives.

I know I don't breed at a scale as you do GB,

but one chick that has the makings of a winner would still bring on a positive outlook.

 

Like you said, the beginnings of your albinos improving maybe :)

also this is the normal rate of growth maddy for a good show bird so your baby now is not growing fast quick he is being looked after properly this intern making it possible for him/her to be maximizing his potential

Sound good Gb, I hope all goes to plan.

I have a hen that I bred last year with no hassles and the cock was a father last year too and they were great parents but the little so and so s this year.

The hen which is a violet opaline daughter of my best violet and the cock a light green son of my big green green cock, They laid the first egg and she or he destroyed it so I put a false egg in to deter her, well it worked she went on and laid another 7 eggs all fertile and due to hatch at the weekend BUT I did my rounds before and the little so and so s, 2 eggs broken open, the last 2 she laid by the looks of it, the other 5 were still there so I grabbed them out and fostered them. aggrrh

i really doubt my club would be interested in my dodgy drawings kaz

thanks though for the vote of confidence ;)

i am however getting some mugs (cups) and few other things with some my art works on not just my budgies but will be getting a few the birds ive done on them as i do quiet like one or two of them myself

and i still have few judging sticks to make :) i think you saw the one i made mp to say thank-you for his constant effort and patience with me as im sure i am not the easiest person in the world to mentor lol

 

i took pics the albino two day will get them up soon enough

also paired my birds today as well and have a few for sale also ill put up pics of in for sale if anyone requests it

 

a light green possibly split lacewing cock 8 months

and a cinnamon Grey green split lacewing cock just starting three month molt

a clear-body cock bird 09

im not finished as yet it is very hard and im not sure im doing right thing but i will find out i guess latter

these birds are very nice i just need to concentrate my lines down so ... some have to go regardless of their quality :(

i dont even know a price for the birds im culling yet and will ask advice from my trusty :P

 

im culling alone this time lol my decisions only so someone may end up with a bargon as im sticking to my decisions its time to get serious with my plan for my studs future

Hi Gb, I have had the same disaster here, very disappointing and heart breaking , i had over 48 fertile eggs and I have only 18 chicks survive, I have had most of them die at one day old because the hens won't feed them. I have had a couple die at 10 days old. And the other nest had all clear eggs. I put more pairs down I think about 8 pair and only one nest with have fertile eggs, the rest all clear. One hen sits to tight so her eggs didn't hatch which was very disappointing.

The chicks range from 5 weeks down to about 10 days old. I have bred a couple of really good clearbodies and a really nice spangle and 2 nice grey greens so far. oh and a nice grey hen, so am happy with the quality I have bred, most of them will be keepers so far.

Yesterday Geoff helped me pair more up, so I have 32 cages going URGGhh. But this time we plucked the **** out of their below area, and it was amazing how much heavy dark down my birds carry. So have my fingers crossed now.
