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 Chart: Opaline African LoveBirds

WattaBird! Breeding Chart: Opaline African LoveBirds This Breeding Chart aims to help provide a visual idea on the breeding combinations for Opaline LoveBirds . This will also provide a bloodline composition of the offspring that will be useful in matching breeding pairs for a targeted result. Opaline genetics is Sex-Linked . Sex-Linked  inheritance in African LoveBirds are traits that are carried in the genetic chromosomes that also determines the sex of the offspring.  Female offspring are visual and cannot be split (Normal).  Male offspring on the other hand can be both visual and split-Opaline . Photos used below are for representation purposes only with focus on the head to show full hood for Opaline and Peach-Face for Normal or Split-Opaline. Breeding Pair 1:   OPALINE (c) x OPALINE (h) Parent :  Cock is OPALINE  (DAD) Hen is OPALINE  (MOM) Offspring : Sons are  OPALINE Daughters are  OPALINE Cock is OPALINE (Dad) Hen is OPALINE (Mom) ALL OFFSPRINGS ARE OPALINE All Sons are OP

WattaBird! Featured Breeder: Jun Aviary

WattaBird! Featured Breeder:  Jun Aviary Cabuyao, Laguna, Philippines  The featured African LoveBirds Breeder for this week is Jun Aviary from Cabuyao, Laguna, Philippines. Jun Aviary specializes in breeding Opaline LoveBirds "Opaline is a mutation which was discovered in 1997. The opaline mutation first appeared in peach-face lovebirds bred by Becky Anderson of the Royal Rose Aviary in Upper Michigan in January, 1997. The opaline mutation changes where the colors are located on the birds in a predictable but new pattern. The opaline mutation is sex linked. As a result, hens with opaline genes will always show the pattern (they are termed "visuals"). Males require two copies of the gene to be visuals, so there are far fewer of them. We have noticed subtle differences in males with only one copy of the gene ("splits") that sometimes allow a breeder to tell the difference between a split male and one that has no opaline gene at all." -  theropod aviary Here
