I also have Taklas which yes are muffed or booted ..I also have oriental rollers yellow only ... and so far all my Taklas are silver/black checks .. and all the Corums are blue barred baldies with assorted white feathers here n there ! will upload pictures when I figure out how ,.. I'm very new here !

Welcome a board.
It is not every day to run into someone who has Çorums.
How did you get them?
Are you in Canada?
In the states we only have the whites (as far as I know).
I can't wait to see their photos.
For the photos look at the About the Site section on the main page.
In there you will see a post named "How do I put my photos in to the Breeders section? "

Take care

Thank you for the photos Mike.
Handsome birds.
I hope you have a strong breeding season.
Have you flown any of them yet?

Hi ,.. have not flown them yet ... only got them last summer late in season ....I'm not going to fly the adults until I'm certain that I have enough young birds to suffice ... Corums are rare to the point where losing one would severely hamper my small breeding program .. these birds are not even outside .. they are inside a heated loft 7o degrees ... after I have 30 or so young in a couple seasons i will fly them hungry just before dark lol !

I don't blame you.
I would do the same.
Good luck with the breeding season.
