ask. The blue here is male and female green split to blue.

** Not sure what you are asking here. 2 of 1 sex to 1 of
other? Birds bond for life so please don't switch them
around or set up threesomes if this is what you mean. I
never ever switch mates. Never. Or maybe you are asking
ratio? A blue and a green split to blue will produce 50/50.
If you were to put a blue with a normal green you would get
blue hatched with white down, green split to blue hatched
with white down or normal green hatched with yellow down.

** You can't go wrong with Tom the quakerman. He has health
issues and not doing too well so I am sure that is his
reasoning on super sale.
** VERY important item... please do not breed pairs that are
too young. Males should be 18 months old and females 2 years
Feed your birds a wonderful diet of seed, millet, only 'some'
pellets and lots of fresh and cooked foods and they will
produce happy healthy babys for you.
good thoughts for you,
