our genetic wiz's need to SEE this
as to injections in the egg......possible....but improbable.........
what would be the point?
and color bleaching the wings..... that would have damaged the feathers right?
or killed the birds
and those birds look healthy
luisa, do you think you can get more?
have you bred them yet?
wheres NEV or DEAN!
well injecting the eggs with dye will turn the bird the color of the dye , but only untill the first few molts so i doubt it.
Bleaching the wings would kill the birds ( because of the smell and preening)
But the further cinnimon gene i think is a possible , maybe one that has been 'unlocked' till this point
