Default Making Rainbows ^_^



I am just wondering about breeding "rainbows".
This is my female clearwing Cleo.


Ideally, I would need to have a beauty like this male


And Cleo should be a YF2 for rainbows. But she is an olive, and I am
also wondering about how to get a rainbow from her. As she will only
have green bubs, If I breed her with a blue series male of some sort, would
her male offspring be split for blue? Then I would have to breed her with
her son? Ive had breeders tell me things like this before, but im wondering
what outcomes will come from Cleo, and if she should be bred with any
of the males I have to produce rainbows. She is of good size To young
to breed right now though

Rainbows are very confusing for me (like most things ) I have been given some birds as rainbows but have learned since that it can only be a rainbow if opaline and I think clear wing.

As you know from other posts Tegan that mutations quite go over my head, but as with Trellie, just wanted to say your fids are looking more gorgeous than ever

A rainbow is a composite budgerigar that carries opaline , clearwing and yellow or golden face on a blue series bird.

Ah! Did you mean to say "breed her with her son"?!? Cause, that would not be good!

And as I've said before, Cleo is so beautiful!

hi there,

with your current birds it would take a couple of breeding seasons at least. you need to get yf, opaline, clearflight and blue in there somehow.

putting her with the yf male would be a start, then you could put her with her son to get blues and cleaflights, but it would be hit and miss as to whether you got yf in there too or if you get blue, yf and clearflight in the same chick. and you will still be missing opaline.

even putting her with a rainbow would still take two generations at least - the first generation would be green (unless she is split blue) so you would not know which chicks have yf.

pairing chicks with their parents would not be likely to cause any problems as long as the parents are not related, but it is always a risk you have to weigh up.

I'm sure Toni means clearwing not clearflight.

If you could buy another clearwing it would save the risk of breeding mother to son and save a year. You would also be better to get a yellow face opaline male. To breed a rainbow with the males you have could take a very long time
