Reading over the Blog 'Hand Rearing Birds' which featured Shadow & Co. it was hard to believe that was in May 2016 and its now February 2018.   Shadow is still with me and he is still in the house (;))

He now has a mate (a white zebra finch) and they have just finished rearing these 6 lovely little chicks.

Guess there's no chance of Shadow and Snowy going out to the aviary now:lol:

He is still tame Andy, (Snowy isn't)

I can't remember the pair that laid that egg(Shadow;))     I had thought in the future  if I paired him up with a 'proper' BC female and all the chicks were BC then the pied would be coming from Snowy. BUT the two of them get along fine and I really would feel bad splitting them up:D.  They are excellent parents.

(Just noticed that Shadow has a white part on his wing so he must have the pied gene.)
