this is very true

also some thing to add males go barren for some times 4 to 5 months a year

yes thats right infertile totally

 

they too do come into season to breed

as mentioned the first sign is indeed the deep bright shinning glossy cere

 

thats why if a cock is young (08 or 07 three or 4 year old ) and doesn't fill

i keep them if good as its just trying them a year or a few months latter at a different time of year

 

 

I did not know they go Barren for a few months out of the year - very interesting :)

 

is there any average time of the year they do it? or just random for the Area they live in ?

every cock bird is different theirs no real time they do it

but it is fact

many a good cock bird has been tried

then retried then moved on in belief hes infertile

i have a few myself that were so called infertile cocks

 

 

also if you have a cock bird that does not fill yet his cere is reasonably blue and he seems in good condition to breed

placing a few chicks in place of the infertile eggs obviously when they would of been due and new born-snot week olds

will most of the time kick start his fertility

by time hes finished feeding his foster children he should be right to fill his own next round

feeding the young stimulates thecock into breeding condition again most times

H,i we are very new to owning our beautiful Budgies. What we would like to know is at what age does the ceres start to change colour ?

Usually around the time of their first molt. It can vary with each bird, though.

Hello Kaz, Thanks for the input on budgie ceres differences. As an off topic though, I was wondering if you knew how I might contact Peter Thurn AKA Chooker. I am seeking to purchase some Fallow budgerigars, and i see he is a big breeder of these, hoping he may have some surplass birds.

 

If you know of anyone who breeds Fallows that might be a good contact, then it would be appreciated to get hooked up with any leads. Seems so difficult to purchase some varieties, like just can;t walk into the pet store and find them. Thanks, Trev

Interesting. I look for whitish rings on larger nostrils for females and smaller flatter nostrils for miles. Also females seem to be more bulbous than males. This is start from colouring. Am I correct? Please correct me Kaz,Finnie.moderators?
