Here we go again…

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Back to the usual odds from last year... clutch number two ended up giving me 3.0 lessers, and 3.3 normals.  This was my dinker clutch for the year, and didn't produce anything too abnormal.  I do find it interesting that pretty much all of them have some sort of black backing going on, but at this point I'm thinking it has more to do with selective breeding than any sort of morph gene.  If anyone sees something I'm missing, let me know!  All opinions are welcome!

Clutch number 2 is down…

and it's a doozy!  This girl is turning into quite a monster.  She started out with 6 eggs her first clutch, 9 eggs her second clutch (although one was infertile), and now she just laid a whopping 10 eggs!  Hopefully they're all good, I won't have a chance to candle them until later tonight.  This clutch should also let us know for sure if there's anything special going on with her and the brownback lesser she produced in 2010 or if he's just a really nice lesser.  Clutch bp12-2.

Found this girl ovulating last night before I headed to bed... guess it's time to fire up the incubator real soon!

Got my fingers crossed!

This is another pairing I'm looking forward to this year.  This male was produced by this girl back in 2010 (clutch bp10-5) and is the only the 'black backed' lesser we've produced at this point.  Is there something going on with the female?  I tried this pairing last year but he didn't figure things out until just before she ovulated so I don't think he got the job done.  No question about it this year!  He's been locking up with her from the start and I haven't paired her up with anyone else.  On top of that, she's getting real close to ovulating already and I feel a good eight or nine follicles in her!
