A few of the babies I have raised!
"Daisy" Pallid Blue Quaker #513 From Elvis & Sparkle. Pictures to the left show a baby that I helped hatch out after it had difficuty on its own. The baby ended up being a pallid blue from Elvis & Sparkle. The baby is pictured on the top right two weeks later. Notice the feet of the pallid blue are white, as opposed to the grey feet on a regular blue Quaker.
"Nori" Green Quaker #031 and "Willow" Pallid Green Quaker #032 from the colony. These birds are sibling sisters, hatched on the same day - February 24, 2009. As with the pallid blue Quaker, the feet are white on a pallid and grey on a normal colored Quaker. The fuzzy down on a pallid green is also quite yellow in comparison to a normal, as you can see in the photos on the left side. Even at just a few days old you can pick out a pallid in the nest box. The bottom two photos on the right are of the birds, fully weaned and fledged. The normal green baby was
DNA sexed female. The pallids I produce here are all hens based on the genetics of the pairs involved. There is no need to DNA sex pallids that I produce.
Cinnamon Green Quaker baby "Queequeg" #027 & Green Quaker "Sprout" #028, from Barry & Gia.
These babies were hatched mid November of 2008. They were siblings Quakers, although one had a distictly brownish tinge to his feathers and was DNA sexed male. The other was normal color and was unsexed.
Blue hen Quakers "Daisey"#509 & "Ms. Marple" #510 from Mr. Birdie & Sunshine.
