  4. My big problem is that I have 1 visual violet, 3 violet sky blues, 2 violet greens and 1 olive. So I am going to have to wait til next season to see any cobalts and visual violets.
  5. I find myself with only one violet cobalt and three violet sky blues, 2 violet greens and one olive. So my big thing is that I have to wait.
  6. Hello, I am new. I have been interested in violets. This is my first season that I am getting results. I have a Visual Violet cock that just started breeding. I have him paired with to a cobalt recessive pied. There are chicks in the nest now. This male I will be using alot. I have two Violet green cocks that I have to use. One will only throw green since he is homozygous and one that is split. I have decided that any mauves I get I will keep the best two for next season. And I want all visual violet females. I live on an island and supply is low. So any suggestions, I will take. I tried the websites you listed, but they are not accessible.
  7. What’s your opinion on the budgie seed GoldenCob? Does GoldenCob sprout well? and are your opinions of Birdzone Lite sprouts? I will be sprouting both of these and mix it with boiled egg, broccoli, kale and spinach, will be adding other vegetables slowly as Wynter only seem to like green vegetables so far 😂 Am I missing any ingredients for a balanced diet?
  8. Corn is one of the most ‘famous’ cereal grains across the globe. Grown in countless countries worldwide, corn also come in varieties. Ultimately, sweet corn on cob is as healthy as a cereal grain and its rich in fibre, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Corn contains approximately 96 calories which is perfect for low calorie diets as well!
  9. I see this is a very old post but it's helped me out. I have an aggressive hen she was grooming the chicks harshly and had blood around her beak. You can hear the chicks are not enjoying the treatment. The chicks don't have alot of feathers and seem to be grouping together to keep each other warm. I leave the heating on for them so they don't get too cold. I removed the hen and the cock bird has continued to feed the five chicks. He was fine the whole day yesterday going in and out the nest box. This morning he was slightly hesitant for a few minutes but with the calls for food he has continued his role. I can only hope he continues to do his part. It would be long until they start cracking seeds themselves. I've added a picture of one of the chick's. He is still a bit bald but at this stage seems okay without the hen Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. Hi there So long since I posted on here - back for some more valuable advice on mutation please. I purchased this red-eyed baby from local pet shop & would really appreciate any help you can give. There are a few cinnamon coloured tail feathers - it was so difficult to get (her) to sit still long enough to get photos. Hope these will suffice. Many thanks!
  11. Hi, I think this is the best picture I have. They are not easy target. [emoji51] BR Jenny Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
  12. Hii Guys, I have an Aviary to set up for my 9 year old kid. But before that, I need to set up the base for it to make it a solid base to prevent from possible rodents. We work long hours and do not have much time for any U-Turns if not done properly. So, would appreciate if any one is expert enough to please share their tips to make a solid base with what I have got. I have got: 57 - 400x400 size Pavers Gravel of size 20mm approx Sand - quarter qubic meter We have clay soil in my back yard. One question, If I place 1cm x 1cm mesh at the bottom of the cage and put it on the dirt, is it okay or it will get rusty soon and wont be of any us?? I believe its a Galvanised one. Please help with fast and easy solutions. i am attaching photos for your easy understanding and getting best solution. Look forward for your kind replies, Thank you, Sameer

  14. Hello! So I'm new to the website so I hope I'm doing this correctly. I bought this pair of two budgies (one male and female) about 3 weeks ago and have been slowly gaining their trust. They've become tame enough to land and even eat off of my hand but recently they started biting my fingers when I take the treat away and they're still on my hand. Am I doing something wrong or is there something I can do to stop this behavior from continuing? At first it was just nibbles but they have just progressively been getting stronger in their bites and I don't want them to bite other people. Thank you in advance! (also forgot to mention they're both only a few months old)
  15. IQF fruits and IQF vegetables are the preferred choices of many owing to their various qualities and benefits. They are quick to cook and readily available to prepare a wide range of dishes. They do not lose their nutrients while undergoing the freezing process and have longer shelf life compared to fresh fruits and vegetables.
  16. Wow he is so gorgeous, I'm sure he have a violet factor but I'm not sure if it's DF or SF. But even if he is a SF he will have violet babies, violet is dominant. I recommend you to breed him with a blue violet hen budgie, you would have amazing violet colors from they🤩
  17. I've heard it's possible to have the violet factor and the gray factor in a budgie, but I haven't seen any photo. These budgies take just one of the 2 factors in their color and we just know they had the other factor too when they have babies? Or we can see both factors (visually) in a budgie??
  18. Because of his cheek patches maybe he is a sky blue with violet factor, they are like cobalt blue but mord bright. If you could take a picture close to their cheek patches and his chest would be better to identify him
  19. i recently purchased 6 budgies and have them for a month,have tried taming mild success,my question is when is it okay to introduce them to the aviary i built they are my only budgies. thanks for your reply. victor

    Found Budgie!

    Hello everyone! I recently found a budgie on the side of the road! It is very cold where I live so I am thankful I found him and he was cold/tired enough to let me scoop him up with my sweatshirt. He snuggled right in! I am assuming a family lost him, I have contacted local pet stores / vets / went knocking around the neighborhood he was found in and I've basically hit a dead end. If he just escaped I am sure his family thinks he is dead and isn't looking for him and if he was dumped, then he is just in a similar situation now. I have absolutely no problem keeping him. I've never owned birds before, but I consider myself to be a great owner and I know I can give him a great life. Just looking for tips in case he does become a part of my family and no owners eventually come forward. He is a sweet bird, and he climbs on my hand (taking a ride with me to chill on the couch). I've been gentle and don't force my companionship but he seems to do better out of his cage so I am trying to let him out as much as possible to acclimate to my apartment. He has only chirped a few times and looks overall pretty sad. I am sure this is because he may be sad about new potential ownership. Any tips? His little band says he was born in 2020 and I assuming he has at least reached maturity. Kay P.S. Yes he was in a hamster cage for a day because it is all I had and better the box I had him in at first.
  21. Hi guys, I have had my budgie for over a year, however it has just sparked my interest to find out what mutation he has and how rare it is. Any help would be much appreciated 63743031326__29A436DE-394A-4B4E-82F8-1593064ED121.MOV

  23. My poor blue baby has been single since he flew into our life. There are females available yet he doesn't really know how to talk to girls. Instead of singing and grooming them, Blu rushes up and starts peck the female's wings and beak agressively. Is there a way to show him how to get a mate?
  24. Adore the greek mythology theme, great to see that these angels are in kind hands now 😊 Mind giving an update on your little gods and godesses?
  25. All budgies are unique so don't take my word for granted. It could just be the horomones kicking in although 3 months is a bit young.
  26. My female budgie used to do something similar after mating where she would chase us around and attack our hands, often trying to rub her bum, for days at a time. We noticed that her abdomen was a lot larger and got her diagnosed with fatty liver disease. After a diet change and medication she was back to being her regular, half-aggressive self. I would recommend taking your budgie for a check up and an x-ray if possible just to see whether her liver may be enlarged. If you can't do that an easier option would be to offer fresh fruit and vegetables instead of seeds as well as a mixture of AVC (apple cide vinegar) and milk thistle. Natural remedies take a bit longer to kick in though. Goodluck with your angels!~
