BREEDING PAIRS

Post by smick » Mon Aug 10, 2009 11:19 pm

WITH MY RINGNECKS I BOUGHT A ALBINO RINGNECK AS A POSSIBLE COCK BUT IT MUST BE A HEN AS THE LUTINO COCK BIRD HAS PAIRED UP WITH IT AND IS FEEDING IT. WITH A LUTINO COCK TO A ALBINO HEN WILL I GET LUTINO COCKS AND HENS SPLIT BLUE?. I WENT TO A BIRD SALE AND BOUGHT A MUTURE PASTEL LACEWING COCK WHICH I HAVE PAIRED UP WITH A PASTEL BLUE HEN. IF IM RIGHT SHOULD I GET BLUE AND PASTEL BLUE COCKS BOTH SPLIT LACEWING . BLUE LACEWING HENS AND PASTEL LACEWING HENS?.
I HAVE A ONE YEAR OLD BLUE SPLIT LACEWING COCK IF I GET ANY HENS FROM THE ABOVE PAIR WOULD IT BE BEST TO PAIR IT WITH A BLUE LACEWING HEN OR A PASTEL LACEWING HEN.
ALSO I HAVE A LUTINO HEN WHAT COCK BIRD WOULD BE BEST TO PUT WITH HER?.

Right once
I WENT TO A BIRD SALE AND BOUGHT A MUTURE PASTEL LACEWING COCK WHICH I HAVE PAIRED UP WITH A PASTEL BLUE HEN. IF IM RIGHT SHOULD I GET BLUE AND PASTEL BLUE COCKS BOTH SPLIT LACEWING . BLUE LACEWING HENS AND PASTEL LACEWING HENS?.
Right twice

I thick it is wiser to pair it to the pastel lacewing hen. Otherwise you will not get pastel in the offspring.

It depends what you want to do with your birds: if breeding high price mutations try to avoid lutinos, since they will mask buttercups, violets, greys, clearhead-cleartail, ... that is all the mutations where melanin is need to be expressed. The offspring of a lutino hen will always be males split lutino. So you will not find the lutino in the first generation, excepting if you pair her to a male lutino (100% lutinos males and females) or split lutino (50% lutinos males and females). Another possibility is to pair her to a pallid male: you can obtein pallidinos males and pallids females. I thinck that the last one is really the best choice (if your female is not split to other mutations)

Good luck
