    Half Sider Fishers Lovebird!!! (pictures)

    This was so amazing I was searching for some Violet White faced Pied Peach faces (which I want badly ) and I came across this bird. This is the most oddest bird I have ever seen. It must be extremely rare!

    I wish it was mine :P

    I have actually been on that site before, they have some beautiful birds!
    Joey, are you looking for a lovie like this
    This is a Medium Whitefaced Blue Double Factor Violet Pied male baby from my last clutch from Isis and Osiris.


    He was much more purple than what you can see in the pic, but Violet Factors are very hard to show in pics.

    I saw a violet factor once - Petra's clutchmate, actually. She was super-pretty and tame, but they were not selling her - they were gonna keep her for a breeder. Then after we'd bought Petra, the next time we went back they had changed their minds and the VF was for sale. Ah well, I would not trade my Petra-girl for ANYTHING. But man, that was one gorgeous lovie!

    They certainly are. I have been postponing posting pictures of Molly, my OF Opaline, because I want to also post pics of my DD VV WF, Elle, but I can't get her gorgeous colors to show in the photos!

    Regarding the half-siders: there is something weird about the heritability of that trait that makes them extremely hard to come by, but I forget what it is. I will have to go back to that chapter in the book that I'm thinking of, and come back later.

    That is a beautiful bird..and the half fichers, I have never heard of are they real, looks like they made by a computer image, can someone breed for them to come out like that?

    They cannot be bred for (the Half-siders) because the mutation is unpredictable. They are very neat but it is more of a fluke, not really something that can be made when setting up two birds.

    Re: Half Sider Fishers Lovebird!!! (pictures)

    The halfsided fisher has what is called a Mosaic patter. It is a rare occurance and is not something that can be bred for. It happens when 1 egg is getting fertilized by 2 sperm.
    A Mosaic bird will carrie genes from both colours that is shows and will throw both colours. It will not throw Mosaics.
    Here is a page with pics of a few Mosaic homing pigeons:

    That is what I thought! I went back to looking them over last night. It seems that some effort is beign made in reinforcing the quality in pairs by successively breeding birds that produce multiple mosaic babies, to create "lines" but so far to no avail.

    That's a neat looking bird! I saw a pic of an IRN one of those, it was neat to! So does that mean that the female has to breed with two males to produce this color?

    No, it means that 2 mutations are present at the same time, like if a male bird is split to blue (as is the mom) but they are both green, the half-sider has the blue gene as well as the green gene.
