well i was just thinking this morning... the only whiteface cinnamon i dont have is a spangle or spangle pied....
and wouldnt you know it....
today i ran into one....
i AM mental.... i have it on hold....
i also have a normal grey whiteface male on hold, who has been in the pet shop for about 2-4 years :eek:
i have looked at him so many times, and thought ... i love that bird....
but he is a HORRIFIC biter, and is not tame in the slightest.....
somehow i dont think the spangle will be tame either.....
so i guess i am thinking of getting there 2 'terrors' and hopefully turning them in to decent law abiding avian citizens...!

oh my god... am starting to be kinda scared at how many babies i will end up with....
hopefully this new 2 will keep my hands full (and bitten) for a whyle at least...

i will dna the w/f cinnamon spangle too(i think it is also pied)...
on the plus side... this cinnamon is definitely unrelated to the 4 i have already!
omg it is an unbelievably pretty bird!...
will go to the shop again tomorrow and this time i wont forget the camera!
i will need a bigger house soon...

That's a whole lotta birds. I guess you really want to have them out in the aviary and breeding..will you be keeping all the babies too?

lol i know... but i think only the budgies will be sent out to the aviary to breed....
unless i cant get these 2 new babys (not that the grey is even young :p) to be model citizens!
then him and his girlfriend (i have always wanted a grey w/f pearl :p but we will see... ) can have an aviary of their own... or share a giant one with the budgies...

i doubt i will keep babies... i might sell them... or more likely... just find homes with friends...
some babies i will have to keep... to continue a breeding line...

well there is Cinnamaroll...
and the three cinnamons i just got...(these three birds might be related... i dont know for sure, but because of that they wil never be bred together!)
then there is the cinnamon spangle and whiteface grey

so if the spangle is a female.. all i need is for the 3 babys dna to come back 2 boys an a girl, and i will have 3 pairs set up already!

ok guys... here is a spangle cinnamon....
this bird is a normal yellow base... and has awesome spangle!




i love it... but i dislike yellow so i wont buy it... plus my addiction is for WHITEFACE cinnamons :p

ok so here is the whiteface cinnamon spangle i am getting.... this bird is also a pied...


and here s/he is with the grey whiteface male i have given in to getting after 3 years of seeing the poor little bugger at the pet shop....


enjoy... i know i did! :p

its a beautiful bird hey!...
it truly shows the 'spangle' pattern in all its glory!
i considered getting that bird.... but that would open my house to all other yellow based mutations, and i would end up with like 500 birds or something ridiculous...:p

:rofl: I guess you're right. I have never seen spangle tiels before, are they a lot dearer than the other mutations at the pet shop?
