    Our First Clutch Ever, All Out of Their Eggs! :)

    I just wanted to thank everyone here for all their help. I've asked a million questions and worried for the last several months but it looks like everything went perfectly and I've got 5 healthy babies. We decided about a year and a half ago we wanted to breed as a hobby and spent what felt like forever learning how to do it. We've got a few clown females and a banana clown male that will be ready to go this coming winter but wanted to try 1 pairing over the last winter to make sure we knew what we were doing first. We paired a female spider het pied to a pastel pied and got 5 eggs. I feel like we hit some great odds. We got:

    1 pastel spider pied (bumblebee pied)
    1 solid white spider pied with no head patch (a white wedding)
    1 pastel pied
    1 spider het pied
    1 pastel het pied

    It feels like it's been an incredibly long wait but now it all felt worth it. We're hooked now so there's no turning back.

    That very first clutch is really when you know if you want to keep doing this or not, I was hooked since my first one too and never look back.

    I'd love to post some pics. Despite being tech savvy, I'm not really sure how to post pics on this forum, lol. I assume the image must be hosted online and then linked within the thread?
