Rip's Rares

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, thought I would share with you my new arrivals. I use to breed these varieties back last time I was in the hobby and have just been waiting for the appropriate time to obtain my starting stock to once again breed these rare varieties.

 

Firstly Saddlesbacks. Here is a picture of the two cock birds. The two hens are splits.

Next is the Faded hen. She is an Opaline and as such her body colour is more faded than it would normally be. I have only managed to get this one bird as the breeder just did not have any others available. She has been bred with but with no results. She does all the right things except for letting the cock bird have a bit of fun. I am hoping a change of scenery may jog her into laying fertile eggs.

Next two pics are of a Cinnamon Darkwing hen and a Cinnamon Darkwing cock respectively. As they are Cinnamon version they are yellower in body colour and the darkwing marking is more Cinnamon in shade.

Lastly is the Dark Eyed Clear who is still a young bird and not ready to breed with just yet.

Enjoy the pics.

Well looks like opaline, opaline clearbody a dilute the next one i'd be going gee I wonder what THAT is and a DEC.

 

That's the trouble with some of these mutations isn't it! They look SO MUCH like something else (with minor differences) that they are not really startling enough for people to really want to breed them - hence being rare I guess. Looking forward to seeing them in the flesh though and maybe they will be something a bit more "different".

 

Thanks for sharing RIP. Hoping they all breed very nicely for you!

 

Oh an what about AI-ing the hen that's not allowing the cock bird to mount. Easy fix for that problem (if that's what's actually causing the issue).

The faded opaline hen is very nice and I particularly like the cinnamon darkwing cock.

Will you keep breeding the darkwings in cinnamon or will you mate them to normals & produce splits to produce non-cinnamon darkwings?

I tried to scource Darkwing Dilutes without Cinnamon but the breeder just didn't have any. Starting with the Cinnamon version is no problem. The Darkwing is a dominant marking mutation so easy to start off with a few individuals.

 

Currently the hen is paired to a Dilute cock so will produce 100% Dilutes some of which will be Darkwing Dilutes. All cocks will be split for Cinnamon. Once a cabinet becomes vacant the cock will be paired to a Dilute hen and again I will get 100% Dilutes but this time the hens will be Cinnamon with some being Darkwing Cinnamon Dilutes, of course all cocks will be Split for Cinnamon.

Nice looking birds. RIP.

 

With regards to the DEC, does that mean there will be some pure Dutch Pieds appearing soon ? Thought they were rare as rockinghorse doo doo.

Certainly does Stew. I got a very nice Danish Pied for him for later as she is too young to breed with at present. I will in a month or two put him to a normal hen and breed all split Danish and of course some Dutch Pieds with any luck.

I have just purchased my first rares, B.E.S. AND DARKWINGS and mating suggestions, I have a pair of B.E.S. together, and a darkwing with a B.E.S. and a B.E.S. with a cinnamon grey hen, I was also told to use cinnamon dark green hens.

Hi, this is an old post and some of the members in this post don't seem to be around any more, hope someone else with rares can advise you on your birds.

Pics would be nice for the rest of us to see.
