Can you please correct me if I'm wrong in identifying them....

 

First one is a Cinnamon Greywing Hen....

I'm not really sure about this one if its correct...

At least I;m sure its a hen....

 

I believe the yellow one is a Dark Eyed Clear Cock...

Judging the lack of other color aside from yellow based and white patches but his eyes are black unlike lutino which are red...

Cere is pink which gives me the impression of being male...

 

 

Sad thing about this dark eyed clear, I had him with damage on his left foot after being bullied by a couple of peach faced which shares their previous cage...

I had him in dextrose for 3 days, because he is staying laying at the bottom of the cage, nicely though, the cinnamon greywing is feeding him...

(does that also show pairing and bonding from young age??) (they are not closely related)

 

now he start staying at the perch, using the swing, and flying around...

one thing I notice is whenever i'm giving him a free flight inside the house, he always bump his head to the ceiling and after sometimes, he seems to be exhausted with panting breathes and his wings are lightly apart...

I will start to give him vitamins....

 

By the way, we named the dark eyed clear Bumble bird...

Both pretty birds, how long have you had them? If cock has had sore foot and they haven't had much flying exercise, maybe he just gets tired after flying for a while.

If that's the case I'd just give him a little bit longer each time he's out so he can build up his wing muscles. If they are caged without room to fly they lose the ability to fly far.

Why do you think the hen is a cinnamon greywing? It can be hard to see cinnamon in a greywing, if you just go by looking. But if you know the breeder, they might be able to tell you whether she had plum eyes when she hatched, or if her father is cinnamon or split to it.

 

 

I think you are probably right about the dark eyed clear. Unless he gets iris rings and a blue cere when he grows up. Then he would be a double factor spangle.
