2018 Breeding Season

Outstanding season, ten (out of 17) girls bred delivered healthy clutches, several yielding results beyond my expectations.  Especially banner season for Blackheads, producing  -22- stunning morphs including my first two Super's.

CALICO x BLACKHEAD-QUAD

Second Axanthic project for the season, pairing both originals who created several o/s Axanthic Killerbees.  She laid three small eggs on April 29th, which hatched late June.

One of my veteran breeders, Calico to the "new" Blackhead Quad.  On~May 5th she dropped -4- healthy eggs which hatched early July.  Not disappointed, all -4- Blackhead morphs, amazing results!!!

Paired my virgin Blackhead-YB girl to my new Asphalt/Enchi male. On May 8th she dropped four healthy eggs, and hatched July 7th. Missed on the BH Freeway/Mardi Gras, but still nice clutch.

BLACKHEAD p/h GHOST x BLACKHEAD GHOST MOJAVE YELLOWBELLY

Excited about this one, my '14 Blackhead (virgin) girl to the Blackhead Ghost male.  Hoping she is carrying  same Ghost gene that produced the male, as she came from same dad.  She dropped five healthy eggs on May 30th, and hatched week of July 29th.  No ghost but my first, albeit pair of Super Blackheads!  Quite happy, great way to finish the season!  More pics forthcoming following initial sheds ...

BUTTERPIN x BLACKHEAD YELLOWBELLY Het GHOST

Another veteran breeder, my ButterPin girl paired against my Blackead YB het Ghost.  She dropped eight healthy eggs on May 26th, everybody hatched late July.  Lots of butter variations & more Blackheads!
