@  DizzyBlue : (29 October 2014 - 08:07 PM) parents are dna sexed...are the pearl faces...now i'm feeling really lost rotflmao
@  Heather : (29 October 2014 - 08:00 PM) Lol i meant the parents are dna sexed so its not like my two lovebirds who turned out both to be females!!
@  DizzyBlue : (29 October 2014 - 07:14 PM) not following that heather.... dna sexing of eggs is done from the membrane after hatching or is there something new on the market?
@  DizzyBlue : (29 October 2014 - 07:08 PM) dna sexed eggs??? errrr ??!!

@  divegirl : (29 October 2014 - 03:27 PM) haha I didn't think of that. He's calmed down now thank god. The dogs have been hiding in the kitchen lol
@  Scarlett : (29 October 2014 - 02:51 PM) Good, at least he`ll bring the cobwebs down!!
@  divegirl : (29 October 2014 - 01:02 PM) Dave is like a flying feather dispenser today. He's in a mad mood flying around like a nutter and furiously moulting!

@  DizzyBlue : (28 October 2014 - 09:07 PM) chat time peeps :)
@  DizzyBlue : (28 October 2014 - 06:57 PM) your welcome xx
@  Heather : (28 October 2014 - 06:36 PM) Ok thanks :-)
@  DizzyBlue : (28 October 2014 - 06:20 PM) as for the coating yes teflon is a major biggie but there are other things too so such as paint coatings so by rule of thumb use it else where for a week or two at maximum temperature before it goes anywhere near the feathered friends to ensure any gases are totally dispelled from the "coatings" :thumbsup:
