Pairing One

(CLICK THE BANNER TO RETURN TO THE PAIRING INDEX)


RED HEAD COCK 62 (Monte II)
FLEDGED 3 FEBRUARY 2001
RED HEAD HEN 32 (Becky)
FLEDGED 10 FEBRUARY 1999

This pair matched up in 2002 after Becky lost her partner.
Both are quality birds and enter their third year together.
Unfortunately it is Becky's 5th breeding year but she seems in good condition.
Becky is a favourite and has to be hand lifted from her nest!


TUESDAY 24TH FEBRUARY 2004

Upon returning from the UK ten days ago I found Becky sitting on five eggs. To the naked eye only two looked fertile. Yesterday one egg had hatched and I suspect the second fertile egg will have hatched although I have not checked her nest today. You can click on the pics below to enlarge them. Becky is tolerant of nest inspections and has to be lifted up and placed back. She will not move for anything.



MONDAY 19TH JANUARY 2004

Released back into the aviary and Becky is already carrying swamp grass around.
