    Not sure - I never can get mine to line up nicely at treat time. They just keep bunching around and jostling for treats.

    The only time I can get them to line up is at bed time. Then they are nicely behaved girls and line up all in a straight line on their perches.

    It is easy. Once you combine atleast 2 lines, then it becomes your line. As long as the result from crossing two lines is good, call it your own.

    I always heard you had to work with your started line for years before anyone would acknowledge yours as an independant. Oh, and it's always good to keep lots of records on what birds you used, where they came from, etc...
