I think you might have tried to visit my old website, it is closed that is why it says you need an invitation. For whatever reason the host will not let me delete it.

Here is my site http://cutelittlebirdiesaviary.weebly.com/index.html Please let me know if you have any problems visiting it.

I know it is going to be a lot of work, but I am up for the challange! I am thankful that I do not have to work out of the home so I can give my flock all my attention. I try to spoil them thank you hehe.

Hi Jo Ann, finally got the holidays over (well, almost, my wife is Vietnamese and the Lunar New Year is Jan 23, so more celebrating). I have a few (16) babies in the nest. Been getting to many clear eggs. Had on cock died and the hen deserted the nest, fostered the eggs, one hatched then died when he was 5 days old. Today I moved all of last years babies into the adult flight, and pulled out the ones I am selling. Have more pairs on eggs, some have not laid yet. And all are eating like there is no tomorrow.

Hope you have been able to get your breeding program underway. I always look forward to the breeding season, but not all the work involved. LOL.

Hope you had a great Christmas and that the New Year is the best ever, with many chicks in your nest boxes. Have a great day.

George

Hi Jo Ann, sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I have been fighting allergies and a head cold at the same time. Head cold is gone, allergies still giving me problems.

Last Sat. the Arizona Budgerigar Society held their annual Christmas Breakfast. It was well attended and the food was prepared by several members with Carol Joyner our main cook for meal. We all had a good time.

If you ask some of the Australian breeders about Frosted pied they will tell you there is no such mutation. I have to disagree. There may not be any in Australia yet, but we do have them here in the states and thery are in England also.

I have had a disappointing breeding season so far. Clear eggs, chicks dying the day after they hatch. One pair has hatched out 6 chciks, 4 dioed the next day. My best Dominant Pied cock died in the breeding cage, the hen was on 6 eggs and she left the nest. I fostered the eggs, which were chilled, to a pair with clear eggs but they had been chilled to long.At present I have 12 pairs set up all on eggs and only 8 chicks. Mick thinks the weather may be effecting them, I don't. It has rained for 3 days now (I'm sick of it too) and we have had, foir us, some cold weather. Hopefully things will pick up soon.

I have a YEllow Face Grey Dominant Pied hen. I am not happy with her size, but hopefully I can pair her to a large male and improve o the size. She is a nice looking bird, just on the small side, but then she is still young too.

Hope your breeding goes well for you, and you get more Frosted Pieds.

George

I've been wanting to get some Frosted Pieds. Del O'Connell, who lives here, breeds them but hasn't any for sale right now. I have Dominant pieds and Recessive pieds. I plan to breed some of my violets into the Dominant pieds this spring. I have severaal nice DF Violets from last breeding season. First two chicks hatched this week, parents are a Cinnamon Grey Green Normal cock and Grey Green Normal hen. Both are good sized birds with good sized heads, so I am hoping I get soemthing nice out of them.
