  2. Looks like a great tank. You going to put a background on it? Are you only having the guppies and the panda cories? http://users.kent.net/~lisab/
  3. (Laughing out loud) I guess I'll have to try that version!
  4. Can always try one I made a while back - http://www.jigzone.com/puzzles/7112A50FD27
  5. Another name for a soccer player is Pele. Don't know that it's applicable, but it's the only other player I know! (well, he used to play)
  6. Jessamy since she's pale yellow.
  7. Here are some pics from the first day of the show. I took many pictures but lots didn't work well. Pretty tough getting good pics of birds in show cages. Total bird entries at the show was 319. Total budgie entries was 62. I've included a few generic shots of the show, a small section of the awards before they were handed out and a few decent budgie pics. I mainly only photographed 1st or 2nd place. A couple were just birds I liked.
  8. I just copied the list. So, not worried that it's not complete.
  9. I found a chart that I copied here. Hopefully it's correct.

  10. I wouldn't worry about it so much. If you see an egg, there's really no way for her to sit on it properly without a nesting box. Some females will even lay eggs when they're alone! The behaviour you see could be just a new game she's figured out. Maybe try a new toy?
  11. We were discussing our budgies and from our experience with zebra finches, and a few other finches, there are some types you should not breed back to themselves. Some say you shouldn't breed crested to crested as the double factor ones dis. That's the sort of thing we were wondering about. His question is: Are there any lethal factor genes in budgies?
  12. I MSNed him the other day since I was also worried about the bird, and he told me that she was doing alot better.
  13. Said quite well in my opinion. To me, it's state your opinion of the matter and if they don't follow your advice, well... that's the way it is. You won't force anyone to change what they'll do, or what they believe. They're going to do it whether or not we agree it's right or wrong. The way you state your opinion says more about the person you are than the message you're trying to send. Knowing Joey a little, I'd say that if he had the money and the ability to go to an avian vet for the bird, he would have. It's pretty tough for a kid to have the ability/money to do these sorts of things though and I think people tend to forget that fact.
  14. I say Hephaestus! Maybe you could "feminize" the name. I figured if you wanted to follow the gods, and needed one that was handicapped, the name works.
