Question Downsizing my breeding stock HELP!

I have been thinking about downsizing my breeding stock for a couple months now. I will be graduating college next year, so I will be moving in the next couple of years. I have tried to figure out a way to pick and choose what birds I will be keeping. Now this is a hard choice to make simply because I think of my birds not just as breeding stock but as pets. Now I am more attached to some than others but it's still hard. So I thought I would concentrate on the birds I just can't give up. Then I thought of what mutations I would still like to breed. Because I still plan on breeding birds when I move.

So I came to the conclusion that I would like to breed sky blues, light greens, violets, opalines, normals and spangles, yellow face type twos, white recessive pieds. I also plan on breeding lacewings in the next couple of years. I have learned that english or english american crosses are much friendlier so I would like to breed the english into my birds as well. Now that I know what I want to keep I can figure out what to let go. I have also come up with my favorite mutation combinations. I would love for all of these birds to be 100% or 50% english.

sky blue spangle
white recessive pied sky blue
opaline violet
normal light green
opaline light green
normal sky blue yellow face type two
white lacewing

So here are my birds. Please help me determine what birds I should keep.

Zeus male ENGLISH spangle sky blue split for ino

Athena female ENGLISH normal sky blue

Diego male opaline yellow face type two clearwing cobalt SF dominant pied

La fiesta female opaline yellow face type two clearwing sky blue SF dominant pied

Horus male Lutino

Ginger female olive green cinnamon

Willow male normal yellow face type two sky blue SF violet split for recessive pied opaline

Storm female opaline sky blue grey factor SF violet factor split for recessive pied

Dusty male sky blue opaline grey factor DF violet split for cinnamon

Stella opaline sky blue SF violet

Apollo male light green split for opaline

Grace female medium green grey SF dominant pied

Prince male normal sky blue SF violet

Violet female DF dominant pied DF violet grey wing

Tut male DF dominant pied yellow face type two sky blue SF violet

Bell female normal sky blue

Beau male opaline recessive pied yellow face type two sky blue SF violet split for cinnamon

Liberty female medium green grey split for blue and recessive pied

Otis spangle SF dominant pied sky blue SF violet split for ino

Cindy opaline cinnamon yellow face type two DF violet

Sorry to hear you will be downsizing.

I love Cindy, Zeus, Diego, Violet...well most of them! I don't know about breeding combinations. Very beautiful birds! You could send the ones you dont want to me

That's what I was thinking! I'd love to have some of those birds. Though it is really sad that you have to get rid of so many. I would personally keep the following:
Cindy
Beau
Tut
Violet
Diego
La Fiesta
Horus
Ginger
Storm
and Grace
And that is in no particular order and for various reasons.
I would 100% advise you to keep Horus. He was the one pick out of them all, even after I went through my list twice, that I just thought that it would be best to keep him for your breeding purposes.

There are alot of beautiful budgies in there!!
It also seems like to me that the ino splits and violet splits are all kept babies. I'm not sure how old the parents are now,but if this is something you're planning to breed again in a couple years,keep just the parents,or if they will be too old,keep different babies from the parents,and rehome the parents and remaining babies.Personal attachments will play a huge factor too,and we do not know your special bonds with certain ones. You have to make the decision.Everbody has their own favorite color mutations that they prefer. I like the spangles,opalines, inos and violets. My likes shouldn't persuade you to keep certain ones.

I have decided that parting with my birds will have to wait until a later date. I have to many plans for breeding. I'm only going to sell a couple of my adults that I'm not attached to and won't be good breeding stock. Thank you everyone for your input. It would be great if some one could close this thread for me. Thanks

No such thing as a split violet.
