I wish my Birds understood genetics - they had three chicks!! I would have appreciated at least one Lutino, not all Albino's!! Where is the fairness in that!! ha ha
On the upside... I have have breed this season a beautiful Lacewing Male and Female, which confirms that what I thought was a Violet Fallow, is indeed a visual Lacewing or I couldn't have gotten my handsome wee boy... It's a good breeding year - 19 budgie chicks in the nest at the moment...12 eggs due to hatch within the week... Cockatiels fledging at the moment, my Turquiosines hatched out 5 chicks and my Bourkes are sitting on 8 fertile eggs!!
I adore spring... Even if our weather has been crazy this year!!
The winds have been terrible lately... I've made roll down plastic covers for all my aviaries, so they live in a subtropical environment even when it's raining outside... I also breed Button Quails and all the other breeders that I usually compete with to sell, are complaining that their hens aren't even sitting - so I'm able to sell them easy peezie...
yep both parents mustve had one blue gene which was being overtaken by one green gene. then both parents passes on the blue gene to the young rather than the green gene. the young then have two blue genes with no green ones, so they are blue series.
