Thank's Sunnie, chick you mentioned has the green patch between wings and has a little patch of green on lower abdomen near each leg. :rolleyes:

Is 7 chicks a rare number or am I just inexperienced? It seems to be that most people of 6 or 7 eggs and then 2+ die in the eggs or die from similar causes, making the total number of chicks 4 or 5.

Is is just me or do some of the birds in NEST 2, look spangle?

Lovely birds Robyn, I would love to have ALL of them in my aviary :wub:

 

I especially love Aquarius, I am in love with Yellow-face blues.

 

Will you keep some to breed off of? I would easily pay $30-$45 per bird ! ! ! ! !

Taylor - Aquarius is spangle so 50% of his off spring will be spangle as well (when matched to a normal)

The Budgie Guy - you are right to have 7 is a big number for a clutch, means they are great parents.

Thanks all, haven't been "on" for a while.

 

Yes 4 of Aquarius's chicks are spangle 2 also show cinnamon so I think he is also carrying cinnamon,( if so those 2 should be hens) if I have got the sex linked bit sorted.

They are now in aviary with others. Lovely soft shades nice chicks. The ones I now have I'll be keeping I won't breed again until March or so.

 

I have bred quite a few big clutches. Aquarius had 10 eggs raised 9, from last season, this time he had 7 from 8 eggs. Mine are pet types I think someone said they have bigger clutches than show birds.

 

Thanks again for you comments. :)

Correct

Some of my show types quite regularly lay 11-12 eggs per clutch, usually all fertile. Always have to put down pet type foster pairs at the same time just to handle the over flow.
