WattaBird! My African LoveBirds Fischer CHICKS (Gallery)

WattaBird! My African LoveBirds Fischer CHICKS (Gallery) Just sharing some of my African LoveBirds Fischer Chicks.  These are some of the first batch of offsprings from my African LoveBirds Breeding Pairs.  These photos were taken back in the early days when I was just starting with African LoveBirds breeding. These are African LoveBirds from the Agapornis Fischeri family, also known as eye-ring or African LoveBirds 2 (ALBS2). These photos popped in my Facebook Memories, reminding me of these beautiful African LoveBirds Chicks  that I have in my mini-aviary 12 long years ago! “If You have any questions, suggestions, or topics to discuss, please leave a comment below.” This is a Lutino Fischer Chick  (Parents: Bulls White Fischer Cock x Bulls Yellow Fischer Hen) These are Lutino and Albino Fischer Chicks (same clutch) (Parents: Bulls White Fischer Cock x Bulls Yellow Fischer Hen) This is a Green Fischer Chick (Parents: Green Fischer Cock x Olive Fischer Hen) This is a Green Fischer Chic

WattaBird Gallery! Pied Factor African LoveBirds

Image
WattaBird Gallery! Pied Factor African LoveBirds The Pied LoveBirds are one of the most popular mutations. This factor produces an irregular lack of melanin, which causes the bird to have irregular pieds. Simply put, these birds have color patterns depending on color concentration and the characteristics manifest differently. The Pied Factor causes a dilution of the ground color and gives a snowy shading to the rose-pink color or the forehead and throat. Pieds are very strong birds and can be used to increase the genetic vigor of other mutations through combinations. Young Pieds can already be easily identified while still in the nest. The first growth in the feather follicles will already give an overall pied look to the skin. The beak on the other hand is either white or light golden-yellow or light yellow brown color, which has barely a trace of black on the base.

WattaBird! Breeding Violet Fischer African LoveBirds

WattaBird! Breeding Violet Fischer African LoveBirds The objective of this breeding project is simply to produce Violet Fischer series Lovebirds. For this breeding project, both the Cock and the Hen are Violet Fischers . This type of pairing will generally produce Violet Fischers, Blue Fischers, Medium Blue (Cobalt) Fischers, Dark Blue (Mauve) Fischers. Violet Fischer African LoveBird Gallery Here's my Violet Fischer Breeder. This pair is a back to back Violet Fischer LoverBird. The Cock is on the right. LoveBird Cocks are normally smaller than the Hen. Fischer LoveBirds are not sexually dimorphic. This means that there is no way to tell just by looking at them. Both look the same.  This is the Cock. This is the Hen. “The main objective of WattaBird.com is to promote African Loverbirds Breeding as a hobby, share breeding experiences, tips, techniques, best practices, and most importantly, to promote camaraderie among LoveBirds Breeders.” -  WattaBird.com

WattaBird! Orange-Face American Lutino LoveBirds

Image
WattaBird! Orange-Face American Lutino LoveBirds An Orange-Face American Lutino , is a golden yellow lovebird, with  white primaries and rump.  The feet, claws and beak are pink salmon, and the eyes are red. The Ino factor is recessive and sex-linked, which means that it is impossible for female birds to be split for Ino. If a female possesses an Ino factor, it is a Lutino. There are not many combinations involving the American Ino factor that can be recommended.  It is "epistatic" to the majority of the other mutations, which is therefore not visible in combinations. What I have in my aviary is an Orange-Face American Lutino. Orange-Face American Lutino The Orange-Face American Lutino is a golden yellow lovebird. The primaries and rump of an Orange-Face American Lutino are white. Orange-Face American Lutino. The feet, claws and beak are pink salmon, and the eyes are red.
