ABOUT OUR TORNADO PROJECT
So back in September 2017 I saw a post on Facebook showing a clutch (last Pic) that had just hatched from a pair of Triple Het parents with 2 very unusual Bbys amongst the 6 hatched so I msgd him immediately.
This was his reply when I asked what the parents are:
“The albino was Morton Wright line I imported from VPI about 7 years ago, the toffee line came from Paul Angelides, swapped a female black Axanthic with him for a double het toffee pied.
The pairing of these produced the adults you have which I then put together that produced the clutch with the 2 different ones.”
Also the adults you have were siblings to a Toffino pied I also hatched. I was thinking of getting out of royals altogether and sold the Toffino pied but kept all the siblings as just like having a couple of royals about but have since sold on.
So to cut a long story short we did a swap where I got the parents & all the Bbys, sadly 1 of the unusual ones (what we now call a Sandstorm) which was completely different to the other unusual 1 didn’t make it & died within a couple of weeks of hatching.
So we paired the adults again the following year & they produced another clutch pretty much identical to their 1st with the same 2 unusual Bby’s in !
Yes ! that EXACTLY what we had been hoping for these last couple years.
Granted it could have been better and this times Bbys could have been a boys!
But to re- produce both unusual ones that are healthy & eating well is AMAZING !
And so now this the 1st year as well as hopefully making more Tornadoes & Sandstorms we making some incredible hets with our Tornado male and hope to make a small number of Tornadoes available later this year
