WattaBird! My African LoveBirds Fischer CHICKS (Gallery)

Image
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! Breeding Dark Platinum Opaline African LoveBirds

WattaBird! Breeding Dark Platinum Opaline African LoveBirds  Here is another project ( Dark Platinum Opaline LoveBird )   that I am trying to replicate.  This is a first of its kind mutation that Tom's LoveBirds Farm  in Riverside California was able to produce.  I'm currently sourcing out the pairing materials for this project. So far, I'm able to see that there are possible material for the Cock, though I need to be very sure about the color shade.  On the other hand, it is challenging to source the Hen since the mutation seems not yet available or may be scarce in the Philippines. In such case, I may have breed to produce the Hen.   You may just come back for the update on this project. I'm hoping that I already have some progress when you come back.

WattaBird! Breeding White African LoveBirds White LoveBird This project is aimed at producing  White  LoveBirds . In technical terms, these are called  Turquoise Ino  or  Blue Violet Ino  mutations. I got this breeding program from  Tom's LoveBird Farm in Riverside California . I requested from Tom, permission for me to use the information related to his breeding projects, which he willingly gave his approval and I'm very much thankful for his generosity. The  projected offspring  for this project is a  LoveBird (Agapornis Roseicollis), which is  almost all white with a yellow tint on the wings and head .  The rump also will have barely yellow on it. For the rest of this article, I will be addressing this as a  White LoveBird . I'm very much excited about this breeding project, and looking forward to my first White LoveBirds ! OPTION 1:  First  Generation  Pairing: Creamino (Cock) x Blue Violet (Hen) First Generation Projected Offspring: Daughters

WattaBird! Breeding WhiteHood Opaline African LoveBirds (Pair 2) The objective of this breeding project is also to produce  WhiteHood Opaline Lovebirds . This is my second breeding pair projected to produce WhiteHood Opaline . For this breeding project, the Cock is a   White-Face Blue Split to Opaline   while the Hen is a   White-Face Ino Split to Fallow . Both parents have White-Face lineage, and the Cock is split to Opaline. These are the common denominators used so we can produce a  WhiteHood Opaline LoveBird . The Cock being split Opaline, while the Hen being Non-Opaline will result in the following projections.
