Egg Incubation Timing Question

Hi All, I have a couple of questions to ask about egg incubation: 1) If I moved eggs that are laid 7 days earlier from one nest to another, would the hen know by smell that these are not her eggs? 2) Due to the eggs being 7 days earlier than hers and the chicks being born earlier will the hen know t...

Re: Can't wait for pin feathers... Dark red coloured eyes?

David, The red eyed birds 90% of the time come from the father being split for either ino, cin. or pallid The red eyed birds should be hens So, whatever the red eyed chick will be , let's say pallid father is Blue split pallid, nothing to do with the hen in this case. PS: I just realised your hen i...

Re: Can't wait for pin feathers... Dark red coloured eyes?

I was thinking ino myself, but it it possible for inos to be produced, when the hen is pallid? (I didn't think the pair can produce inos (split inos possibly), but not visual) Do pallid and cinnamon birds have dark red eyes? (Apologies for my consistent questioning). I highly doubt the CHF theory, I...

Can't wait for pin feathers... Dark red coloured eyes?

Hi All, A pair of my IRNs have had three chicks (oldest being 6 days old). The parent birds are a visual Blue Cock to Turquoise Blue Pallid Hen (I am unaware of their splits / genetic history). Here comes the part that is confusing me. Of the three chicks, 1 has 'normal' dark coloured eyes (I am ass...

Confusion on Gencalc

Please help:
What chicks will I get from the following pairs based on gencalc?
Lutino Cock to Creamino Hen
Blue Cock to Turquoise Blue Pallid Hen
I am thinking:
Pair One: 1.0 ino x 0.1 turq (parblue) ino
Pair Two: 1.0 blue x 0.1 turq parblue pallid.
Would appreciate if someone could confirm.
Thanks...

Re: First Egg - 2013 Breeding Season (Adelaide, Australia)

Put leg bands on the two largest chicks today. I think I was just in time for chick 1 as it was a bit of a squeeze to get the band on but it hasn't come off. Chick 2's band has fallen off once and I found it in the wood shavings and have put it back on again. I have never really looked at a baby IRN...

Re: First Egg - 2013 Breeding Season (Adelaide, Australia)

Thanks to both of you for your responses and recommendations.
On the basis of your experience and recommendations, I will leave the egg/s alone and keep my other pair together and see what spring might bring.

Re: Calling IRN breeders from Australia

Some great information in this thread
I am assuming South Australia's breeding season will be generally close to Queensland, perhaps slightly delayed.
Is my interpretation correct?
