    Hi, I have a clutch of cockatiels that their eyes are barely opening yesterday. The parents are wite faced cinnamon pied, one is minimal pied, mama is heavy pied, gorgeous pearl. They thow a high percentage of heavy pied WF cinnamon babies, about half are pearl. I am asking $50/chick, local pickup. If you are not interested in hand feeding, they are $75 at weaning. I do not handle or tame the chicks if they are parent raised. Please only contact me for handfeeding these chicks if you are experienced and have raised many chicks successfully already. These are not "practice" birds for learning to hand feed. Thanks for looking. Call if you want 951 310 9883

I have lovebird babies right now, pied, normal green opalines, whiteface cobalt violets, whitefaced cinnamon, whitefaced blues, split to opaline if males, i have an orangeaced lacewing paired with a normal opaline right now sitting on eggs, as well as various other pairs, opaline x opaline, slate pied over blue violet, all exquisite mutations of course... If you lived close we could go in the flight and nest peep, just for fun...

    Hmmmmm... how many birds??? like actual numbers??? hmmmmm....
    I have about a dozne red headed parrot finches, normal, pied, and seagreen pied... and four pairs of pacific parrotlets, green fallow with blue pied, yellow split blue/ino paired with a blue ino split to blue dilute, turquoise paried with split turquoise and a blue paired with an unknown mutation of a dark eyed white hen. None are nesting and I am about to move them so i don't want them nesting. Tiels, just one breeding pair, plus two pied juveniles from them and an "albino" I just traded for. I just gave away a whold flock of Fischer lovebirds to my sister. Trying to pare down. It was a chimera green and blue fischer paired with a dark eyed clear hen, plus another dark eyed clear hen, unrelated, a slate pied, and an olive green one. Only one mated pair in that bunch. Adios. Lovebirds, I honestly don't know, maybe fifty-ish? Two flights, one mostly whiteface varieties, Australian cinnamon male split to silver, cobalts, one slate, WF violets split to American Cinnamon, seagreen opaline, WF lutino, WF heavy pied, WF pied cobalt, WF blues of various colors. The other flight is my "crazy color" flight, all with pieds, American Cinnamon violet pied, Opalines, Orange Faced Yellow, Orange face Lacewing, Lutino, Normal Green, with violet facto and a dark factor split opaline/ino/cinnamone/orageface male that just fledged. Im sure I am forgetting some, but it is a wild looking flight. Just all color all the time.

    Dude, you GOTTA see the chimera. I bet you NEVER saw one like this!!!

    [​IMG]

    and an "in hand" photo of an orangefaced lacewing. See the pale blue color showing over the tail? Lutinos dont show that. Lacewing is a combination of cinnamon and lutino showing at the same time.

    And these you don't see very often, heavy pied fischer. My sister's, I bought him for he a couple years ago just because he was so delicious looking.

    besides some wild babies like starlings my love bird babies were the easest to feed and the cockitels were not so much harder as a bit more time consumeing .
