:D Good to hear! He is really impressive to look at. When I was dropping the grey green hen at a show today(hoping for some tips from the breeders and judges) and looked at the other bird in my untrained eyes it seemed as if Neo would have held up to the competition. Thanks for the input!

 

Would anyone be able to spell the new birds colours out to me? and possibly what I could expect as far as future chicks go?

she seems to me to be sky violet

i could be wrong and if i am shes just plain cobalt but either colour she is handy to have and a good hen id buy her if saw her i love a hen like her very handy type of hen

 

usually great mothers two

 

the sky and sky violet should produces you sky blues or sky violets but nothing else

if shes a cobalt they will give you sky and cobalt chicks but both beings spangle you could end up with df spangles in sky or sky violet but you wont know as they are white

 

if you could get hold of a cobalt cock

normal not spangled

can be opaline just not spangled could even be a pied... you will be able to see if she is indeed sky violet or just cobalt as a cobalt to cobalt rezults in mauve cobalt and violet chicks or violet mauve

a cobalt to cobalt just mauve or cobalt chicks

As I have found out always start with the best birds you can afford.

And it looks like you have some nice ones there especially Neo.

Good luck with your breeding and keep us posted with your results.smile.gif

Thanks Taboo and Splat! :) I am very happy and so keen to learn more more more about show budgies. I have heard some really great info of some really great people at the show today and I'm anxious to put it all into practice, patience is a virtue!

Well there is a marked cage,if ever I seen one.Razz, you will need to buy

your self,some Budgie,show cages before you go to a Budgie Show,or they will

disqualified you for what is called a marked cage as it is not a standard cage.

It looks to be a Canary Cage.

That's an interesting point, Macka. In the photo, there are 17 standard cages, and 7 smaller ones that look like RazzleDazzle's cage. I wonder why there are so many of the smaller ones?

The club I'm in lets members borrow show cages if they are just starting out. Thanks for the tip, I'll be sure to get the right ones when I invest in some :)
