resize to anout 550 wide
Then "save as" .jpg there is an opition box, open this and make about 20 to 25% aqnd save on your computer...

Now in your post or reply to down the bottom is add attachment....use browse....and select the pic on your computer
Then hit add attachment...

Then when u have finished your post hit submitt....

Dont be afraid if u mess up, it only takes a couple secs for me sort out...most ppl are parrot ppl not computer ppl, so we dont growl very hard :fun:

Failing that...email your pic(s) to me (email webmaster top left and tell me where u want it put and I will do it...

Wahoo it works thanx for that steptoe.

I have put my name down for another one from the same breeder. He has a pair of pieds I haven't told him what they have produced he said they haven't produced yet. I really want to hand rear one to see what they are like as pets. Should be fun
I am going to put her with a cinnamon split to pied cock to see what we get duno

Yea right teptoe & what is that supposed to mean you & your big words.
By the way I loved your link on how to tame them.
We have only had them for nearly 12 months.
We got the Cock bird from a conman type who told us he had a split to pied cock for $50 She bought him & after his 1st moult he developed a yellow spot on top of his wing. I don't think this bloke really knew what he had coz he has been searching for a pied ever since happy bana
The hen is nearly 12 months old & she then moulted the this colour.
I am hoping the one I get to rear will be a hen to put with our original cock Pray

The cock bird I had in with the hen got sick about 2 weeks ago, so I bought him over to the house to get him better.
Checked the nest box today & she has laid 2 eggs. They weren't there late last week.
I am wondering how long after mating will the eggs still be fertile.
I have put him back in again but i don't know if they mated before he got sick.
I guess it will be wait & see now d'oh!

Hi thenan i was just looking at your hen. She is fine the only thing is she will probably be completely yellow in 12 months or so. She is a Mottled pied. With the hand raising they are quite easy and will stay freindly even when you put them back in to an aviary for breeding. Cheers Kevin
