  1. Eggs take 18 days to hatch. Sounds like your eggs are not fertile.

    Jimmybanks 2015 Breeding

    I remember doing my first ever rings. It was scary but then the trick is to get them on when the birds are quite small.

    Geelong Auction

    Have seen some exceptional birds at Auctions over the years especially the BRASEA ones but when the dollar gets over $1000 I crawl down in my seat and sit still.

    I'm Back

    Hey Jimmy. we are currently in the process of building our new retirement home after selling our last house. No birds or even a bird room yet. It might still be a while.

    I know what you mean about Facebook but it sure is a growing phenomena. I have two Facebook Groups, not Budgerigar related, and both have over 18,000 members.

    Facebook certainly seems to have had an effect on a lot of forums that is for sure. Are the Facebook pages Budgerigar related Jimmy??? If so do you know the names of them

    Hi Laura

    What Happened

    Funny thing, when I left the forum many of the breeders were not happy with the pet budgie people so perhaps that is why they left. If so it os odd that all the pet budgie people have gone as well. When I get fully into the hobby again I may look at attaching a new forum to my website.

    New Budgerigar Imports Australia

    I had a feeling the Govt wouldn't change their stance on it. I forget now how much the last imports cost but several thousand for each bird.
