  1. Thanks to you both, yep had great day with a family lunch. Then went on to rspb Strumpshaw to see the Starling roost. Got some decent photos of the event. Thanks again, Trevor 😃
  2. Hi, I’m in east Anglia, but only a few pairs. Trevor 😃
  3. Hi Fraza, I think you pink one could be a fawn. Trevor 😃
  4. Emmy, Give them a piece of tablet, that’ll work 😂 Trevor 😃
  5. Emmy, Best way I think to catch is night time with a torch, I caught up for Newark in my 2 flights, one flight took me 50min and the other 35mins. All the best Emmy, Trevor 😃
  6. All, Whether you play sport, general life or keeping Zebs once in a while you get that bit of luck. Well it’s happened to me and I’m chuffed to bits. As you know I like my orange LB,s my target is to have a triple orange LB (one day). A hen I’m using in a breeding pair has a very strong orange gene. I paired her with a OBBBLB, they’ve given me 4 BFOBLB hens which I’m over the moon about, they’ve got orange in the cheeks plus in the flanks. Now this has really set me up for 2018 to hit my target. Just when you think things can’t get any better this male popped out, couldn’t believe my eyes this is something I could only dream about. A triple orange grey male with orange on his back, the odds of me getting this male is very very high. Plus the bonus is he’s split LB as well. Roll on 2018, Thought id share my luck with you all, Any questions please ask and I’ll do my best to answer. Thank you ! Trevor 😃
  7. Clare, Only thing I would say is his breast is dark which I don't think would be if full orange breast. That's why I think he's split OB. Trevor ?
  8. Clare, Parents are BFOB/BB grey x BB Cream/BB (hen). Thanks for interest ? Trevor ?
  9. All, Another colour mutation I've had this season. Very pleased how season is moving along. Trevor ?
  10. Latest picture of BF Cream male
  11. Emmy, thanks for your faith in me ???
  12. All, After breeding by a bit of unknown luck a OBBB fawn CFW red eye, I decided to carry on with this pair and they produced 2 more all 3 are hens. We'll call these parents A. Then the last brood of a different pair produced one of this type once again a hen. We'll call this pair B. Through my eyes I'd never seen this type before, so I thought I would start a separate line and see what I could do. This season I used the male from pair A to the young chick from pair B. Then I got the male from pair B and paired him with a chick from pair A. So far this season I've got one chick from one pair just out of box and ther other pair I think there are 2 in the box. So I'm very pleased how things are building up at present. Will keep you all posted as things progress with this new mutation (yes another one Gary ?) Enjoy photos below, Trevor ?
  13. Hi Gary, It started off with a Silver male x OBBB grey hen. (1st year) only one pair i had the intention of getting orange into silver as a small project along my other stuff. In that year I got 5 males split bb. Next year due to space I was only able to use 2 males which I put to obbb grey hens. One other cage I was having no luck so I used one of the other males and put a fawn BB with him, I had 3 Cream hens off them so the male was split fawn. So this year I paired one BB Cream hen to a triple orange grey male split fawn and this is the result. 3 in nest another BB cream and a OBBB fawn hen. Right now for the best bit, the one in pic is a lot darker and I think it could be a triple orange cream or a OBBB cream. Very pleased with this one. So as you can appreciate a few years work, but worth it. Thanks for your interest ?
  14. Hi, Thought I'd share my first ever male BB Cream I've bred. Really pleased with outcome. By the parents he is either split OB or full OB as well. Trevor ?
  15. All, This little chap came out yesterday, only the one in nest. Trevor ?
