YAY!! you finally made it!!! :(

 

its so funny how people look at you in the hearse. especially considering its left hand drive. as a passenger, you gotta try looking asleep or something else funny that makes other drivers freak out because they think you are the driver :rofl: :rofl:

okay, here is the moment you have all been waiting for.

 

A Grey/Green Cinnamon Cock. He is an '04 bird however he was a gift and he is an excellent father.

Next is a Grey spangle Cock. He is and 07 bird but he refused to sit well in the showcage

An 07 grey normal cock

Guess who?

An 07 Green Opaline Cock

P1010013.jpg

 

Me again!!

Now, these two brothers I am so far calling Dumb and Dumber. The sky blue opaline spangle is the ditzy blonde of the budgie world (apologies to the blondes on this forum), actually they are possibly sky violets

I can perch when I want!!!

P1010009.jpg

P1010033.jpg

 

I also purchase 3 new birds today. No show cage pics, but they are a grey opaline cock, a grey(maybe mauve) opaline girl, and a sky blue cinnamon wing boy.

P1010004.jpg

P1010005.jpg

 

I also bought a travel cage. Nice and big, room for plenty more birds.

More pics to come with more purchases.

You've bought some good birds there, well done!

 

From now onwards you need to think about buying birds that have features that these birds don't have so that when you do your pairings they'll compliment each other.

Thanks for the kind comments.

 

Renee, I am trying to look at getting good quality birds with a range of good features. For example, the grey opaline male that was in the last lot of purchases has a good head, but not the desired length. Needs a longer mask too. When I pair him up to breed, then I will put him with a bird that will complement him. I am trying to think along these lines. I am not simply buying birds, but rather birds that will fit into what I am doing.

 

Trish - they are an amazing blue. Everytime I look at them, I say "wow", they are so electric. They have a sister who is not aslong or boofy headed, rarely hens are as boofy as the cocks, but she will not be coming home with me.
