    I suppose your asking because of the (what you may think are
    stupid questions)sorry for that but,i have no info on the
    parentage of the pairs i bought other than the fact that the
    breeder that put these pairs together did so for the
    mutations that they would throw and that many were splits.
    Now as far as birds i have bred
    parakeets,cockatiels,parrotlets,bluefronts,peachfront and
    nanday conures,around fifty different breeds of chickens,many
    breeds of geese and ducks,pheashant,quail,turkeys,guineas etc.
    Most of these birds i raised in my younger days now that i'm
    about your age almost 50 and since i was disabled about 7 yrs
    ago i have slowed down quite a bit along with my stock (i now
    breed three different types of box turtles and also own four
    south african leopard tortoises.I still breed parrotlets and
    just got the lovebirds not long ago.
    Now as far as the babies go.Some of the babies are spoken for
    (family and friends)also the local pet store wants some but
    they want to FINISH them out am im not willing to do that for
    fear that they will get a babie that i would want to keep for
    future stock again, because i dont know what i'll get from
    these guys, also i have reserved a table in my local bird
    show coming up i can't wait i better leave my checkbook at
    home!lol Also there is about 5 that i have decided to keep
    i'm sure when it's all said and done ill probably wind up
    with more than 5 and as im sure you know its not very hard to
    sell parrotlets.Also thanks for all your knowledge you bring
    to the board,i happen to read everything you write i might
    just learn something. Thanks Tim
