ok....
i am very very excited!!!!!
more than, infact!!!
i sent the dna off for 6 birds...
4 are mine, and 2 are a friend of mines...
so i get the results back in a week at the latest....
but i thought... why not have a guessing match first!

so here are the tiels...
the first is a yet-to-be-named baby.. a w/f cinnamon pearl pied...
s/he has been whistling a fair bit, so i am thinking boy...





the last photo is just to show off how nicely s/he got over his/her vitamin deficiancy!... just look at those healthy nares!

ok... next is Tak, the w/f cinnamon pied
i have a 'feeling' s/he is a girl... nothing to base that on though...





number 3 is Comet, the w/f cinnamon split pied...
s/he dosent really whistle much... (when excited much the same as Tak), buts/he does have a lot of male personality traits... such as large feet, legs are close together at the hips, very attentive... etc...




the last 2 photos are with Tak...

the last of my babies being tested is the SPANGLE BABY!!!
i have absolutely no clue one way or the other... so free reign on guessing!...lol...




the last one is with Onyx, my normal w/f... they were getting their first ever spray!

i will post pikkies of my friends 2 tomorrow when i get the piks...
so yeah... after that barrage of images.. anyone want to guess
....MALE....or....FEMALE?....???
other people can add piks of their tiels for us to guess to if you like(but i have a feeling i shouldve posted this in the 'pikkies' section...)

(sorry for the super long post...)

ahh the only one i know is onyx, is male

but i'll take a guess on the others

the Spangle - Female, Comet - Female,Tak - Male,w/f cin.pearl pied- Male
hehe... yeah i know Onyx is a male, he is the right mutation, and old enough to visually sex... the others are not.. the only one i could have just waited to find out on is Comet... and being that i was already sending off 3 tests... aaaaand it only cost an extra $15 so i decided to be impatient and find out now! :D lol

but yeah i think you may be right with your guesses, but i find out soon....
aaarrrghh... i cant wait!...:wacko::p:blink::D

Although since they have cinnamon in them they are more then likely to be females. But it doesn't rule out males completely! :D

WF Cinnamon Pearl Pied - Female
Tak - Female
Comet - Male
Spangle - Female

hehe yeah cinnamon is a sex linked gene... but i got these birds from different clutches of All cinnamons, which means either they had a few clutches of all girls, or both parents were cinnamon (the latter is a lot more likely)
but we will see!
