Thanks Deb! Proud da da ..LOL

I never seen such colors before, love it!! I really like the one that looks white with the grey markings..But the other 2, wow! you can really see their color more when they are next to one another...Okay, and I gotta give some love to the green..LOL, he looks handsome too...:) CB should be helping out soon...I guess I should post some photo's of the others that I may pair them with..Just not sure yet since I'm keeping them far away and don't know how they will act with each other yet

Overall, I hate my webcam!!! I must buy a digital camera since this has defiantly turned into a hobby and I have a feeling my flock will double by 2012..YIKES!!!:eek: However, I can't see selling any of them..LOL I love them all too much!

Thanks for the pics Anthony! :)

Ok, your 4 new ones-

Pic 1 in the center- The one you like alot is a grey cinnamon opaline dominant pied.

Pic 2- I am afraid that one is a boy :eek: The other 2 look like girls, but he has a bright pink/purple cere like a young boy has. He is a cobalt blue opaline greywing :)

Pic 3 on the left- this little girl is a sky blue greywing normal :)

The green male is a light green opaline :)

Does Charlie have green on his rump i cant see it in the pics?

Okay, this is Cappy, he is the son of Penny & Charlie



This is Luke to the right of Charlie, he has a blue tail, son of Charlie & Penny..I'll see if I have a photo of him alone and closer..



This is Tiffany & Jasmine, both the same, also daughter of Charlie & Penny...Tiffany will be with the new Green male, both have blue tails, Tiffany is the one on the left receiving the preening..;)



And again Charlie



Overall, I have no idea who will be with who yet...

Ok Charlie is a combination pied then, and is at least dominant from his babies outcomes :) Its hard to tell for sure when they have so little markings, breeding is usually the only way to know for sure most of the time :)

Cappy is a dark green dominant pied, possibly a double factor one.

Jasmine and Tiffany are dark green opalines.

Luke is a dark green normal :)

Was Penny a pied too? I cant remember at the moment I am having a brain freeze :p

SIGH!! Your kidding...Oh boy, no pun intended..WOW, whelp, I guess I need two more females because I love that one too now..As for Charlie, no blue on rump, but I see some bum bum issue with the new boy that I thought was a girl..RRRR..No biggie though, I have the new on Doxyvit now for a few days anyways..Okay, so what does this all mean? I thought green was the dominate, so how would the babies look with the greywing females? One with Charlie, the other with Luke or Cappy, both Luke & Cappy are the chicks from Charlie & Penny, so you know their color...And what about the Green Male with Tiffany? Tiffany is also a chick from Charlie & Penny..How's that for a little homework? LOL

Also, how did I miss that chick being a male? how did you notice?

I wondered if he had any green on his lower back or not :) He looks like he has a little color around his neck and head so I just wondered if he had any on his rump.

Green is dominant to blue, but if a bird is green and split for blue they can have blue and green babies with a blue bird :)

The green male is a opaline light green like I said in my first post ;)

He looks like a male because he has a pink/purple cere instead of a white/blue one like a girl would have at a young age :)

OK she is not a dominant pied- So Cappy is just sf dominant pied :)

So to recap here is what I think they are lol-

Grey Opaline cinnamon Sf dominant pied


Cobalt blue opaline greywing


Light blue greywing


Light green opaline


Charlie- Opaline(since his girls all are) recessive/dominant pied combo probably


Cappy- Dark green sf dominant pied


Luke- Normal dark green


Tiffany and Jasmine- Dark green opalines


Feel free to correct me if I am wrong everyone :)

Well, that was easy eh??..LOL Cool!! Going to copy this to M/S Doc to keep handy!! Okay, I have a question..I always thought it was the Albinos that you had to have a pinkish/white cere to be sure it was a girl..So the greywings are the same? I thought for sure I had 3 females 1 male..And how old do you think they are? 6 Months is what I was thinking since no baby bars, must of had their first molt

With almost all young birds its the same when they are babies :)

Females will have a white/pale blue cere when they are young simalar to what they have when they arent in breeding condition.

Males will have a pink/purple more even color to the cere like your little boy has. Pink usually means boy :)

Do they have iris rings developing yet? It looks like they might still have some baby bars but they are very faint because of the mutations, atleast the 2 greywing look like they do. I would guess they are 3-4 months old or so. The green male I think is 6 months or older sinc he has no baby bars and the bright blue cere of an older male :)

No problem! :)

Did you get the greywings from the same place? More than likely they are brothers and sisters ;) I never breed birds I got from the same place together unless I know without a doubt they arent related as most times they are :)
