  1. Last week
  2. For almost a week now, my 5 year old budgie is puffing his feathers, he seems sleepier than usual, and his tail is bobbing. He is still eating, drinking, preening, and his droppings seem normal, but his lack of energy is worrying me. I put a heater in his room, gave him some probiotics and vegetables to help him gain strengh, but it doesn’t seem to be doing much. I thought it could be his moutling pass at first, but there aren’t nearly enough feathers in his cage for it to be so. I’m unsure what to do as he still seems alert but still is sleepier and quieter than usual. Should I go to the vet or is this just a phase? (YELLOW BUDGIE IN THE PICTURE)

  5. I want to show you a picture of my violet grey male. You can tell that it is a violet when you look at his blue throat spots. Greys tend to have greyish throat spots. I am sorry that the light is not at it best. I will try to send more pics. I have him paired to a lutino that caries the violet gene. DB45A724-2DB7-4172-9FDC-2AEA891ACDEA.heic
  6. I am glad to see that picture. I have two violet greens. One hen is a violet light green and one male is a violet dark green. Now from looking at your bird as my violets produce, I can see what a violet olive will look like. I have a spangle olive paired to a violet cobalt. I very well could get a violet olive in their clutches.
  7. First time breeding my budgies myself My mom has been doing it many years so I've been brought up breeding them My budgies were mating and laying eggs in the big group cage so I put them in a seperate cage with a nest box and they are brilliant she has laid 4 at the moment and doing everything right but the 1st egg in the box is a smaller than the other 3 but I candled it and it's fertile, has anyone had any luck with smaller ones hatching or do they die in egg? ....this wasn't her 1st egg altogether as she dropped a few in big cage before putting them in seperate Both birds are doing amazing jobs dad feeding moms etc and mom sitting on the eggs lovely (Front left egg in picture) Thanks in advance for advice

  9. I know that back a few years ago there was a discussion about violets. Things have changed since then. I had posted some time back about breeding. I have a visual violet and I was so excited. He was going to be my foundation Stud. Well he was thinking different. I just was not interested in making babies. NO WAY JOSE! So I had to look at different avenues. So with the new season, I had limited stock. I have 6 couples paired up for the season. Cage 1 is a Violet Cobalt Male Spangle with a sky blue cinnamon. Cage 2 is Violet Sky Blue Violet cobalt Male with with a Dark Green Violet Hen. Cage 3 is Violet Grey Opaline Male with a Lutino Female who carries violet. I got a very nice Violet Mauve Spangle from her. Cage 4 is a Mauve and he is paired with a Violet Cobalt Hen. Cage 5 is an Olive Spangle Male (he was the father of the Violet Mauve Spangle and he is paired with a Violet Cobalt Hen. Last is Cage 6 a Violet Sky Blue Dom Pied with a Sky Blue Recessive Pied. So all of these pairs at least one of the parent has the Violet Gene. I know they didnt want to talk about adding Grey and Green, but I needed the Violet gene. That is my plan and I will be adding images as time goes on. Couple 6 is seriously getting down to business. I am expecting eggs by next week. If you are in the same situation as I am, please feel free to talk about. Lets add pics as they come. Thanks
  10. Last year I had a young male who was from a violet cobalt dom pied and a grey opaline. So I just thought he was a cull and I was going to sell him. The more I look at him, I thought he could be a grey violet. I keep looking at the throat spots. Instead of the dull grey it became more bluer. So starting this season, I paired him with a lutino I have that carries the violet gene. Last year she threw me the prettiest violet mauve. So I am excited. I will keep u posted.
  11. I have 3 dom pieds and only one male has thrown dom pieds. I have 1 dom pied clear flight violet that has never thrown me pieds. So I bred him to a dom pied that I suspect is a recessive dom pied sky blue. I am anxious to see what I get. I will keep you posted if you like.

    Aviary Base

    Hey Guys! I was just wondering… we got an aviary about one week ago and are now starting to fix it up and put a base on it. We were going to put concrete to prevent mice but I reckon that the quail with hurt their feet and the babies could get splayed legs. (Baby quails I mean) We then started to think about sand but we weren’t sure how often to clean it, how expensive it is, if it was worth it or even if there were any easier alternatives. Thanks!

  17. This link doesn't work either... That's what I'm wondering. Google itself gives these links, and then they are not available. Well at least some explanation or a link where you can look.
  18. I am trying to identify this behaviour? I brough this 'hand tamed' budgie home 2 weeks ago, and he is always doing this. I havent seen this behaviour before. As a side note, I question the breeders ethics, i doubt he was hand raised and also did not appreciate her bird keeping conditions. Please understand living very rurally options of shopping elsewhere are very limited. Thanks! 20220106_110252.mp4
