Another anticipated clutch for the season ... only 4 eggs from a first-time female, and lost one on the way. Hatched three great looking animals but missed on the quad BH-F'Bee.
Eggs: 8 healthy eggs on 4/19/15 Hatch Date: 06/16/15
Once again paired one of my Butter-Daddy girls with the Butterbee to see if I could produce a "Platty Bee", and looks like this year it worked! Very cool clutch.
Eggs: 11 healthy eggs, 4/4/15
Hatch Date: 6/01/15
Hatched 10 babies, made lots of crayons! Hit what appears to be four triples, not sure about a quad? Hard to tell at this stage, need a couple sheds. Dad's high-whites carried over ...

Hatched five eggs, missed on the Calico-Blackhead this year, but made a nice Blackhead female and couple cool Calico's.
BEL Ghost x Blackhead
Results: first girl to go, she dropped her clutch in February, unfortunately all slugs except one egg that appeared healthy, but candled no-veins. She was unproven and a bit light. Auspicious start to the new season ...
(1.1 Axanthic Pin, 0.1 Pin, 0.2 Lemon-Blast, 1.0 Killer-Blast, 0.1 Axanthic Super Pastel & 0.1 Axanthic Pastel)
CALICO-PASTEL x BLACKHEAD
Results: Disappointing, she appears to have re-absorbed follicles; she began eating again so write this one off until next season.
PINSTRIPE x BUTTERBEE
Eggs: 13 healthy eggs on 04/26/15
Hatch Date: 06/25/15
First time pairing, mom was massive at 4400gms & dumped a huge clutch. Produced 14 healthy animals, including a pair of Pinstripe "twins". But amazingly with the odds in my favor, did not get a single 3-gene ButterSpin. But won't complain given my success with other clutches this season.
