    Default My 2011 Offspring ... Yay!!

    Here are the four little bundles of joy the came out of my Pastel pair this year. Parents are Mystic and Muse which can both be found in a couple different threads, but I also will post a "fresh" pic here. Photos on the pink fuzzy penguin are courtesy of my 2 year old "helping out".
    Eeny. Up to 6 grams and eating bugs like a champ.



    Meeny. Growing into the "bug eyes" a little, but they are still pronounced. 6.2 grams and cleaning up the bug bowl and CGD bowl as well.



    Miney. About 3 weeks old and 3.4 grams. Don't mind the blue in the first pic (the camera went crazy on me)



    Moe. Also 3 weeks old and 4.2 grams. Just look at that flabby jowl hanging down. I really digging this guys patterning.



    A parent pic of each.
    Mystic. He was in his dark colors tonight for once.

    Muse. She's fattening up nicely after laying 6 total eggs this season (2 went bad).


    Thanks for looking!!

    I adore them all but Meeny is still my first Chahoua love with her big O.O eyes but Moe runs a close second with that hanging jowl! Maybe next year you'll hatch one with both traits? I think you should change Moe's name to Droopy - after the cartoon!

    Very nice chahoua! These are mainlands right? And wow 4/6 eggs hatched? From what I understand the odds are usually 25-50% hatch rates? 4/6 seems pretty darn good then!

    Thanks!! They are both pure Pine Island. I have to credit Laura partially with the good hatch stats. The female came to me in great health (big, but not fat), on a good diet (CGD and roaches) and she had layed dud's the year before. I just made sure to get the eggs immediately after they were layed and pushed the rescuecal+ and white dubia's to the female for about a week after every clutch. The third clutch went bad and it may have been my fault because she always left the eggs on cork bark (not in the lay box) and I didn't check her tub the morning after she layed. The eggs sat out for 18 hours and were already dented in bad before I found them and got them in the incubator. I soaked the eggs as much as I could, but they never came back. In the end, yes, I am happy with a 66% hatch rate in her first year.

    Ah lol I'm no good with guessing what's PI and what's mainland, I know one has more color and one has shorter snouts, but I always confuse the two. But yeah congrats and good luck with your future breeding!
