  1. Full Spectrum Lighting

    Actual shade, because the bird'll want to escape the glare of the light from time to time and 2 foot wouldn't be sufficient to escape it
  2. Full Spectrum Lighting

    you need the bird to have somewhere to hide if they don't want to be in the light...
  3. Full Spectrum Lighting

    You also need to consider covering part of the cage, which I've heard some people find carshades good to use for this purpose
  4. Hand Feeding

    On top of what BJ said, it's actually healthier for the chicks to be fed under the parents for a certain length of time... I forgot why, and I forgot when... just do it
  5. Hand Feeding

    it's meant to be as their eyes are opening right?

  8. My Irn

    Hey guys, The breeder that I'm buying my IRN from has given me a current photo of him/her Here it is Nearly 3 weeks old Normal Blue mutation and I really really can't wait for him/her to arrive! Seriously! I'm going tomorrow night to birdnap him/her (please don't take me seriously there ) So yeah... in about 1 1/2 - 2 months, I'll be the rediculously proud owner of an IRN

  11. Bye Bye Sparta...

    RIP Sparta... died around midnight 17/08/2012... you will definitely be missed sweety Just so you guys know, her head got stuck in a happy hut, and broke her neck... bye bye
  12. Irn

    Hey guys, The night after Sparta died (RIP), my parents gave me permission to get another bird, and I asked for an IRN and they have no problems with it I already cleaned Sparta's old cage and cleaned everything, repositioned everything etc! It looks great I know which breeder I'll get the IRN from and I know that she breeds the normal blue mutation, so I will definitely be getting that! She prices them $180 for quality mutations and h/r IRN's which imho is very very very good My dad and I went to birds n all yesterday after Figure Skating training, just to remind me the size of them, and like I remembered, they're perfect! So in a few weeks time, when my IRN is ready, I will be the proud owner of an Indian Ringneck
  13. Irn

    okay, so in about 2-2 1/2 months I'll be owning an IRN
  14. Bye Bye Sparta...

    If you ever get one, get the largest one you can find that has openings on either side, and only use it for a budgie lol :/

  16. Can Budgie Parents Foster Other Types Of Birds?

    Ummm.... I'm pretty sure that parrotlets and budgies have different feather types, so I think disease would spread... you know... feather dust? Idk lol

  18. A Small Question Out Of Curiosity!

    I think it's either something to do with anatomy, or it's just easier to do it for larger birds.... am interested in the topic though
