I was just looking ahead to the next breeding season for my birds. I wasn't sure who I would pair up with who. I would only like to breed 2 or 3 pairs. I'm looking for the most unique outcomes for 2/3 of mine last year turned out normal greens and one clutch was blue/white.

These are my ones that will be ready for sometime this year.

Males

Dewey


Bebe


Mango


Hope


Firecracker


Females

Kiwi


Butter


Princess


Faith


Flash


I was just thinking about breeding Mango and Kiwi, Butter and Dewey. Not sure. I would like to breed firecracker. His mother is princess his father passed away last year before Christmas. His mother was albino if that means anything to his offspring. Flash is his sister. Thanks!

what particular unique outcomes do you want?

you can breed more recessive pieds, by putting butter or faith with hope.

can you tell us which is your favourite colour and we may be able to suggest pairing for that...

I love the colors of Mango, Kiwi, Dewey (the grey) and Butter (cream color) . If there is any way to get albinos from a female? I love Bebe's bright blues. Is there a chance that Dewey is part English? He is much bigger than my other normal ones. I've always wondered about that.

Female inos would have to be paired to a male ino( or split for ino )to produce any inos.

there is a 50% chance he is split for ino(if his father was split ino he'd be 100% split ino) .if so the offspring would be 50% males ino,50 males split for ino,50% females ino and 50% normal females but all experts would tell you that inbreeding must be avoided.

I will NOT inbreed my birds. That is so horrible to do to the birds. So you think Butter and Hope? I was thinking Butter and Dewey. I'll just have to experiment :p

If i were to breed Mango and Flash or Bebe and Flash what would the reasoning be? Isn't like if you breed a dark colored one (dewey) with a blue doesnt the color get darker if I'm right?
