Shattered dreams…

Clutch 16 is out and it’s one I’ve been waiting to hatch since 2010 when I got my first orange dream! I’ve been moving towards producing a black pastel/orange dream/pinstripe combo for the past four years and on my one shot to do it this year not only did I hatch one, but I hatched TWO! Feast your eyes on the shattered dream!

This is a shot of him next to a black pastel pinstripe from the same clutch…

Whoops!

A little late, but our last clutch hatched out last week.  Ended up with 0.1 black pastel orange dream, 0.2 orange dreams, 2.0 black pastels, and 0.1 normal… NERD line black pastels.  Pretty happy with the black pastel orange dream, although it’d be nice if she was a male!  Anyways, here’s some fresh out of the egg pictures of her.  Can’t wait to see her post shed!

The proof is in the… clown?

FINALLY proved out our het clown girl that we’ve been breeding since 2008.  I gave up on trying to prove her out with the het male we’d been using and bought a nice reduced visual clown in 2010, of course he didn’t get things figured out in time for that season, and then she took the 2011 season off.  He got the job done this year though!  Not the greatest odds sex-wise as we ended up with 2.1 visual clowns and 4.1 het clowns, but at least the one female is the nicest looking!  She’s not going anywhere…
