Budgie Breeding Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility.

May be getting ahead of myself, but I found a genetic calculator and had to see what Herm and Iz's chicks might look like! I think I entered everything in correctly... Not positive, though! This is what the results for the chicks would be, again, if I entered it in correctly. I'm super excited to see the mutations they express, being the genetics nerd that I am

Hermes is a sf goldenface cobalt greywing clearflight pied. Though, I don't know for sure if he's a clearflight or a poorly marked dominant pied or what. I'll know more if/when they have chicks. The calculator didn't have an option for clearflight but they had dutch pied so I entered that.

Izzy is a grey recessive pied cinnamon opaline.

I think I entered in the correct options...I had to add a blue to Izzy's because it kept giving me a green-grey mutation. And I think the 1.0 is for the male and 0.1 is for the female...I just guessed and since Izzy's the female with the cinnamon, her chicks won't express it, and it looks like that's what the calculator gave me.

Haha thanks. And yes, I'm very excited! Part of it is also that it's the calm before the storm (aka Finals) in school, so I've had a lot more free time than usual!


And when I was measuring out this week's supplements for the birds, I found a really, really stupid error. The scale wasn't measuring it in grams (*face palm*), so the prior week's amount of supplement was waaaay to small. I'm glad it was way too little and not too much- that could've been dangerous for the birds!

So the birds actually get about 1 1/2 tsp of supplement per week...not 0.1 tsp I was really confused because I thought that it was a very small measurement but I just thought it was very potent. And I do give them 1-2 days free of supplement as recommended!
