My female cinnamon light pied laid a clutch of 5 eggs a month after her first clutch. In her first clutch all but 1 egg died and she ended up rejecting the only living baby who is now 5 weeks and doing great with my hand feedings. Tonight around 3:00 am i woke to chirping after checking her new baby has hatched! Thankfully it seems she's got motherly instincts this time. Hopefully the father won't pick on the baby cause if that's the case I'll have to separate him which will definitely make it harder on mom.


Edit: I'm calling baby 1 peach fuzz I'll update as they hatch!

Edit 2: one egg has died, after examining the fetus it looked malformed with a crooked beak, though it is sad I've laid the fetus to rest and I'm praying for the other 3 eggs to hatch heathy babies!

I'm glad your 5 week old baby is doing well!!! It's always the worst when a parent rejects their young. And that's really exciting that you have another chick! And yes, please keep us updated! I'd love to hear and see more. I have a female cinnamon light pied cockatiel as well!!!

Oh! You also have a cinnamon pied?! Aren't they just a gorgeous mutation? My hopes is to one day breed a cinnamon white face pied but that's years down the line :)

Yes, I'll show you a picture of her and yes, I love that mutation as well! I love the heavy pied as well! Oh wow, that would be very cool! I've always loved the whiteface mutation!

This is my male WF pied, Oscar mayer wiener! I'm hoping to breed him in the future (gotta find a good/nice mate for him first) my favorite part about his patterning is his lil mask which 100% fits his thieving

Awwwww! He is sooooo cute!!!! 🥰 🤣That's so true! I have a normal pied, and he has that mask as well, which makes sense since he is such a mischief maker. It is a little hard to see in this picture, but he does have it.
