    What Should I Do?

    Thanks for the advice everyone, you have given me lots to think about. I do have a friend who breeds budgies on a much larger scale than me, I will give him a call for a foster Mum. I only breed for me and family and close friends, which is why I have one hen breeding, one clutch only. Which raises another question, which way do you have more success, fostering eggs or the chicks?

    What Should I Do?

    I decided to let my hen have one clutch, this year. I gave her a nesting box, and she promptly started laying. Problem is, she is currently sitting on 10 eggs! I am sure she would not be able to raise all ten chicks successfully, but what to do???? Middle of last week I removed 3 eggs, leaving 7, she has now laid 3 more and we are back to ten! I am fairly sure most are fertile. The first layed should hatch within a day. What would you do? I have no other hens laying, so fostering is not an option.

    Moth Problem....any Advice?

    Thanks for all the suggestions I shall hit my local hardware and try the moth trap thingys if I can get them. Probably a dumb question but I will ask anyway....Those bug zappers, aren't a danger for the birds are they? What if a budgie landed on it or chewed on it?

    Moth Problem....any Advice?

    Hi All! I am having a problem with a moth plague in my avairy. They are a small moth, about 2 cm across their wing span and there is a hundred of them! They don't seem to be causing any problems for my budgies but I have never had this problem before, so don't really know if they could be a problem. My avairy is clean, and the only thing I have tried is to squirt them with the hose! They do make the day to day maintenance of the avairy unpleasant. Has anyone had this problem? Any suggestions on what I can do? Help!!

    There Are Cats Surrounding My Aviary.

    My only answer is to get a little dog. My two chase the cats and even the wild birds that come to window shop away!

    Budgie Bound Up Tight I Think

    "Thanks guys for the responses. This little tyke has been like this for a couple weeks now, so obviously he needs to see vet. I hadn't noticed till tonight though the huge buildup of dung on his undercarriage." Oh dear!
