    Yaa eggs haha... Didnt plan it this way but between the shipping that killed more then 3/4 and later a dog, I only got 5 left. Two are MM hens, 2 CH.Ringnech hens and one Ch.Ringneck cockbird... There heavely guarded...heheh I can already see the male acting differnt and he is crowing...

    I was wondering if I might get a really cool dark irradecent blue colored ringnecky looking bird... was me just being inpatiant and curious

    and What would happen if:
    1. a Melanistic Mutant COCK was bred to a Chinese Ringneck HEN?
    2. a White COCK was bred to a Chinese Ringneck HEN?
    3. a White HEN was bred to a Chinese Ringneck COCK?
    Thanks a lot!
