Cinn & Bitsa And Aqua And Patches

Recommended Posts

These are my 2 pairs of breeding budgies

 

Aqua is a

Dominant Peid but i cant remember her colour

Patches is a

Dominant Peid cant remember his colour either :/

 

Cinn is a

Cinnamon Colbat Clearflight pied

Bitsa is a

Grey Green Opaline Spangle

Aqua and Patches have 3 eggs 4th one due tomorrow

Hopefully these eggs make it as they laid last time and destroyed the eggs

Cinn and Bitsa have no eggs yet but were caught mating today i dont know how long they have been mating for

but Cinn looks like she has an egg bum.

Im Hoping to foster the eggs from Aqua to Cinn so they dont get eaten again if that happens they will be about 2 weeks old when Cinns 1st eggs hatch so i can take them and hand feed them then

I hope it all goes well for you. From reading your other threads, it sounds like you have a breeder friend helping you out. That's nice. :)

Oh, I thought it sounded like you had a breeder friend in real life.

 

 

Be careful what you read on that other forum. A lot of people on there give out misinformation, and if often goes uncorrected. So it's hard to know who to believe.

Dont foster the eggs yet and certainly not if Aqua and patches have begun incubating them because Cinn wont be yet.

okay i thought i should wait until Cinn lays the 2nd egg, She has started incubating tho she wont come out of the nest box at all, but just to be safe i thought i should wait was just checking Thankyou

sometimes it looks like they are incubating but more often they are just in there to prepare for laying the next egg.

Update for today 23/3/12

 

Aqua and Patches have had 5 eggs

This morning i went out and checked on them and they had kicked one out of the nest, I put that one in with Cinn just to see if it is a fertile one cause is to early to tell with it,

will check tomorrow or sunday and should know if its fertile then.

She had also eaten one of the eggs, but left 2 of them 1 fertile one which is the eldest egg, and the one she laid 4 days ago i put the days old one in the incubator but when i

went to get the other egg Aqua attacked me and wont get off it, She has also laid another egg today.

 

Cinn is on 1 of her eggs and 1 of Aquas and since i put Aquas egg in with her Cinn hasnt come out at all except to mate with Bitsa, and when i looked in the nest box she was siting on them both

I have read nearly every link i could find on google everynight im reading stuff about them or love birds, and am looking for the budgie books to, this is the 1st time ive bred budgies i have bred weiros and finches before though.

 

Just my luck to have a egg eater for my first try :/ of course that would happen to me.

 

Amy had a good idea today she said that a mouse might be eating them cause the budgies never have blood or yolk on there beaks but when i searched for entrance holes for a mouse i couldnt find any

Aqua and Patches didnt lay another egg so i put them back in the avairy

 

and have started a new pair in there lets hope for better results with these 2 and hope Cinn and Bitsa do well with there eggs and future babies

 

Aqua and patches have 4 eggs 3 in the incubator 1 under Cinn

 

Cinn and Bitsa have 2 eggs + The foster egg which looks like its growing happily in there

 

I wasnt sure whether the foster egg under Cinn would be okay cause it was on the floor of the breeding cabinet but it looks like its doing great and its growing in there :)

 

The ones in the incubator 1 is fertile and growing great and the other to are either infertile or to early to tell i know one definately is to early

i put them in with Cinn and for some reason they died in the egg when they had 2 days to go :(

 

i have new pics of my little baby shes going to be the same colour as hey daddy as her little feathers are coming through and down on her tail is his colour so unless shes going to have different colours on her ( which i dont think she will) shes going to be a mini Patches lol
