Budgiebird Hilton .....daily Life In My Aviaries Part 3

Recommended Posts

I used to do a daily blog of life in my aviaries on here...all the ins and outs of the day...relationships in the aviary, chciks hatched etc etc.

Here is part one............http://forums.budgiebreeders.asn.au/index.php?showtopic=10863&hl=budgiebird+hilton

 

and here is part 2 .........http://forums.budgiebreeders.asn.au/index.php?showtopic=12692&hl=budgiebird+hilton

 

Today begins PART 3 :D

 

I have 22 breeding cages going right now all in various stages of eggs, chicks, budgie bonking etc. I am about to catch up some more birds for breeding as they are all going mad in the aviaries and pairing up. I have about 150 to 200 birds in the aviary I think.

Here are the lacewing chicks of pet type MING and her show type boy ( no name ) ....you guys can come up with a name for MINGS boy :hap:

A nice pair DSCF4181.jpg

 

Here is a cute little grey green spangle baby still getting its feathers. It was not being well looked after by its mother so it went into a foster nest.

This is its real Dad DSCF4183.jpg

and its foster Dad b9a00675.jpg

and the chick belonging to the foster Dad

I call her B*TCH as she bites really really hard :budgiedance: DSCF4132.jpg

Both those chicks are still in the nest.

 

Here are two nice grey hen chicks just fledged

Very very cute pics Kaz.

 

The lacewings are cute, but I am a sucker for a spangle

I just love this little grey green spangle, so gorgeous :) Looking forward to your updates.

We have only had blue series chicks hatched so far and I am very excited that our first green hen laid an egg today so I have fingers crossed it will be fertile.

Hey Kaz,

 

that's a close SNAP. I was just thinking the other day that I havn't heard you use "Budgiebird Hilton" for a while. I am glad it's back. Love those grey chicks, the second one looks especially good.

Quick question, why are their beaks a browny colour?

Some chicks have a lot of melanin and that gives them a black beak...it goes away after a few weeks. Some top breeders in the world have said they always keep the black beaked ones :o

The spangle is of show parents so we will see how it turns out after some months in the aviary. The green hen isnt bad either excpet for her biting :hap:
