Line Breeding / Inbreeding

Posted on February 8, 2015 at 8:45 PM

All of the budgerigars outside of Australia have been line bred. 99.9% of all breeders for show line breed.

100 years ago Australia stopped exporting Budgerigars to the world. To supply budgerigars for sale, those with the stocks started to inbreed for the demand from the public.

 

During the second world war Britain was in short supply of food for the public let alone the seed for the birds. Many other Europien countries were the same. Many birds were killed so that the few could survive. After the war the stocks had to be brought back. England couldn't get birds from Australia and were forced to inbreed but decide to have a very good look into how to go about it.

 

By selectively pairing the birds they found a way to strength and improve on the structure of the bird. right down to the health. Mean while in other parts of the world they were also looking down the same line. Germany was also inbreeding for improvement.

 

So how is it done. (Generally)

 

Cock X

Hen A .................... Hen B

1st year mating

Chicks .................... Chicks

Cock .... Hen ...................Cock .... Hen

Cock .... Hen ...................Cock .... Hen

Cock .... Hen ...................Cock .... Hen

Cock .... Hen ...................Cock .... Hen

2nd Year

Cocks from pairing of Cock x and Hen A are mated to Hens of pairing Cock X to Hen B

Hens from pairing of Cock x and Hen A are mated to Cocks of pairing Cock X to Hen B

(Half Brother to Half Sister)

3rd Year

Hens from the result are breed back to Cock X

Grandfather to Grand Daughter.

 


- This is assuming that Cock X has really great features to start with.

 

- Chicks from the 1st year mating will have half his genes and half from the hen.

- Chicks from the 2nd year mating will only have a quarter of his genes.

- Chicks from the 3rd year will have 75% his genes. This mating was ment to strength the strain...his strain....his line.

 

- Other Combinations are Uncle to Neice, Aunt to Nephew, Cousin to Cousin.

 

The idea is to enhanse the features of the bird. Features also being health and fertility. besides the looks.

There are not many that breed brother to sister but it does occur.

 

Those that do it are usually "in the fancy" (Breeding For Show). They do study the lines and the heritage of the birds they breed and are prepared to pay thousands of dollars for the birds.

 

This topic is in no way meant to promote line breeding but to explain how and why.
