Yeah they are interesting Pride :P

 

Daz... which you think are interesting just curious???

No real BIG plan, just enjoy show types and dont plan on breeding for show or anything, thats some years away still to consider...

also have some down to use as fosters.... for my hopefully pairs ...being pairs 1 2 3.

 

 

Pair 1

Albino hen + TCB grey cock/ino

Hoping to get TCB hens will be 25% and put with possible split cock from pair 3....

 

 

Pair 2

opaline Cin pied hen green/blue + spangle pied sky cock

cock has big head / feathers but lacks body, so using my best solid hen

 

 

Pair 3

TCB Olive hen + Normal blue cock

trying to get split TCB cocks with good size to use back to pair 1 hens???

(this hen is daughter to TCB cock pair 1) have 2 eggs so far

Looks like some solid pairs NB, should be good to see the outcome.

Pair 1

Albino hen + TCB grey cock/ino

Hoping to get TCB hens will be 25% and put with possible split cock from pair 3....

 

Outcome should be:

 

25% Clearbody/Ino cocks

25% Ino cocks

25% Clearbody hens

25% Ino hens

 

 

As the Albino Hen is carrying Blue and Ino (lutino) and the Cock is carrying Blue to show Grey you should get Blues and Greys from the pairing.

 

You should also get Lutinos and Albinos from this pairing as well. You will also get green series too.

 

The ino gene will lighten the body and the flights from the Cock bird.

 

.....................................................................................................

 

Pair 2

opaline Cin pied hen green/blue + spangle pied sky cock

cock has big head / feathers but lacks body, so using my best solid hen

 

 

 

You should get a variety from this pairing.

 

If the cock is not split to sexlinked (which i doubt) all the hens will be normal, spangles, dominant pieds (sf), dominant pied (df) and Dominant pied Spangles.

 

They will also be Sky blue or split blue.

 

Cocks will be normal, spangles, dominant pieds (sf), dominant pied (df) and Dominant Pied Spangles all split Opaline and cinnamon and if not blue will be split blue.

 

 

........................................................................................................................................

 

Pair 3

TCB Olive hen + Normal blue cock

trying to get split TCB cocks with good size to use back to pair 1 hens???

(this hen is daughter to TCB cock pair 1) have 2 eggs so far

 

Out come

 

50% Normal/Clearbody cocks

50% Normal hens

 

But the colouring is interesting. Because the hen is carrying two dark factors you can expect. Dark greens split blue.

 

If she is split blue you should also get cobalts.

If the cock is not split to sexlinked (which i doubt) all the hens will be normal, spangles, dominant pieds (sf), dominant pied (df) and Dominant pied Spangles.

 

the cock is split cinnamon I know and Hen is split blue

 

They will also be Sky blue or split blue.

 

Cocks will be normal, spangles, dominant pieds (sf), dominant pied (df) and Dominant Pied Spangles all split Opaline and cinnamon and if not blue will be split blue.

 

Big hopes here but pairing is not working out hen hates cock, been almost 2 weeks now...give another few days and will need to change??

just be wary with your last pair you will be breeding the colour into the clearbody, which is against the show standard should you ever wish to show.

I meant the colour in the body, not the literal colour ie sky blue. You will be putting suffusion back into the bird.

CLEARBODY:

MASK AND SPOTS: The mask is to be clear,wide and deep, (not cleft) extending beyond two large cheek patches ornamentedby six evenly spaced, large, round black throat spots, the outer two beingpartially covered by the base of the cheek patches.

 

GENERAL BODY COLOUR: Yellow (Buttercup) orWhite, masking a standard colour that may show as a faint minimal suffusion inthe body and with more intensity over the rump and flank.

 

MARKINGS: On cheeks, back of head, neck andwings - black clearly defined and symmetrical on the appropriate ground colour.

 

EYES: Black with a white iris ring.

 

PRIMARY FLIGHTS: Neutral to Pale Grey(Grizzling is acceptable).

 

FEET & LEGS:Blue/Grey mottled or Pink.

 

Colour

 

Cheek Patch Yellow (Buttercup)& White - Violet/Grey.

 

Tail Quill Yellow (Buttercup)& White - Black

 

Tail Feather Yellow (Buttercup)& White - Dark Blue - Black

 

 

CLEARBODY GROUP: This includes Opaline (without anycombinations) combined with Clearbody. The standard for these birds is as for Clearbody modified by therequirements for the Opaline (without any combinations) variety.

 

 

NOTE 1: BodyColour suffusion (minimal) should increase in depth of shade progressively fromthe upper breast to the rump area.

 

NOTE 2: The Clearbody Opaline (without anycombinations) may be more likely to be Buttercup Yellow(green series) or White (blue series) but they should not be given preferenceover other standard Clearbodies (non Opaline) because of this. Grey factor birds will further modify thebody colour. In the combination ofthese two varieties, suffusion on the back and rump is as per the General BodyColour description of the Clearbody.

No bonding at attacking the cock, she layed an egg but destroyed it... def not fertile as not bonding at all....
