I've been called 'birdbrained' before, but somehow I don't think this is what they meant. say:hah-nay

I have read that the 'mutations' in Australia are all hybrids. The laws regarding the importation of exotic animals have prevented them from bringing any of the true mutations into the country. Seeing that Julie is from Australia, I imagine she is more familiar with seeing them as hybrids?

molossus wrote:The Alexandrines in my collection are pure bred birds. These have originated from parent stock of spontaneous occurring mutations. eg the Recessive edged(a mutation which does not occur in IRNs) splits come from a one of a kind cock owned by Sjack Bastiaan. As far as I am aware there are no recessive grey green IRN existing to have hybridised with Alexandrines. I have spent a great deal of time and effort to ensure no hybrid birds enter my flock.
There are a lot of pure mutations in the world over and one only has to persevere in the search to achieve any measure of success.
Although there are many aviaries cross breeding, the practise of hybridising should be avoided as it does not do the hobby any good.
If there is anything unique out there let me know.
Hi molossus,

for what i know or have heard the misty mutation is the same as the rec. grey mutation. Then here in Europe there are some more mutations: dom. greygreen (belgium, germany), clearhead fallow (nethelands; i think your split birds are originated there (postema)), darkgreeen (belgium, netherlands and england), cinnamon (england)...
And perhaps since last year Aqua (netherlands). But i think this bird(s) isn't a "true" Alex for sure.

here are some pictures:

Aqua Ino hen (for me a hybrid bird):

Cinnamon:

This is a 2nd call to Alex mutation collectors. Mutations in Alexandrines continue to increase and I can only improve my own collection through forums such as this. I appreciate any effort from you all to anyone out there with mutations to contact me as I would like to visit these collectors in the hope of buying new stock. Any help is welcome so talk to me please. :mrgreen:

Hello Myrka,
Yes I do breed with them. The last season I bred an aqua out of a green/aqua and an albino & a dark green. The rest of my pairs come into maturity in the new season. I am in Durban South Africa.
Now it's your turn.ie do you breed with alexs and where are you located?
