Half sider and grizzle

Post by Aussie_nathan » Wed Jan 22, 2014 3:58 am

Hey people,
I was wondering if anyone has ever seen or know of anyone that owns a half sider? They look very different and I would love to get my hands on one, but they can't be purposely bred also has anyone seen or have a grizzle coloured bird? Again another mutation I would love to get
Thanks for your help.

Willy has a half-sider but from my understanding he won't be selling it.
Grizzle... If you are to ever find one, make sure you see the grizzle parents & offspring otherwise it might not be a mutation at all.

You can't say that and then not say, that's just teasing

Sorry but the breeder likes to be privat for this mutation and we should respect this.
Only that much: he is one of the well known breeders in OZ.

One day when I start breeding I would love to get one of each! Does anyone have any photos of any that are pets? I am really interested to see if they are fairly commen or rare? Like I said I have only ever seen one picture of each on the web but I have been offered an green-grey that has what I would describe as a part sider as it has a silver shield on its chest that goes under the wing.

Hi Nathan,
if you run a search within this forum on 'Grizzle' you'll come up with a few birds that could fit that category.

The above bird is mine, we have a breeder in SA experimenting with halfsiders. apparently he had 3 pairs, paired up last year.

I will inquire as to the outcome of last years breeding and report back.

Peter it looks like there is something else at play in your halfsider or am I mistaken

This one is a "Pied" halfsider, I have noticed a few common traits that all halfsiders seem to share.

Has anyone else ?
