Re: KillieTalk Digest V2 #80
I have several strains of "Blue Gularis" and "Dwarf Red Gularis." A couple of
the blue gularis strains consistently live for 4-5 years and while fertility
seems to come and go, if I separate a few 3-year-old females for a few weeks,
I can easily get more than 200 eggs per day for 3-4 days with essentially 100
% fertility! The males are fertile for nearly their entire lives.
Individuals of these strains become ever more beautiful over the years and
appear to be extremely healthy until only a couple of weeks before they die,
at which point "overnight" they become hump-backed and lethargic. My dwarf
red gularis are very old at 18 months to 2 years of age.
