  1. Thats what all of them do, thats why its hard to find one that will actually sell you some. I can't do that though I can only keep 1, I think I will keep the Light Green Normal hen she is looking really nice and I do need another hen. I will post some pictures when I get a new memory card which will be soon.
  2. Thanks Daz, what I meen by holding back is keeping instead of selling it because I only have room for a limited amount of birds so I want to keep the best ones. I will wait and see if they get some of the characteristics you mentioned.
  3. My clutch is fledging and they are all beautiful but I can't make my mind up on which one to keep. I really like the Light Green Normal because she already has alot of spots and a wide mask. The Oplaines both have a long mask but its not as wide as the Light Green Normal's they also have bigger throat spots. The head on the Light green is also bigger than the others. I know they need at least 1 year if not 2 to mature into an adult bird to really be able to notice any show qualities. I'm not sure which one I should keep though... My question is what do you look for when you hold back fledgelings? Thanks
  4. I have a Grey Green Normal cock paired with a Light Green Spangle hen. I know I will have some Spangles but will everything be Grey Green?
  5. wow they are really nice! I love the Violet Normal and Skyblue Spangle..

    Moving Outside...

    I have to move my birds outside because my dad was diagnosed with Bird Fancier's Disease...funny because he doesen't even go near the birds. So I am building an insulated shed with a ceramic heater and vent...sky light and I am thinking of making an indoor/outdoor flight for the budgies. So on one side of the shed I will have breeding pairs and the cockatiels but on the other side I will have a flight for the budgies then a window inside the flight that I can open during certin days and allow them to enjoy the outside. I am worried about mosquitoes and mites... It gets cold here in Canada even in the south but I am going to make sure they stay warm I am cutting my stock down as well. Any tips or suggestions?
  7. Yeah they are definately not Laceings...they are still beautiful though I think I have a Light Green Normal, 2 Light Green Cinnamon Normals and a Light Green Opaline. Is it even possible to get Cinnamons out of a split to Lacewing cock? If the babies were Cinnamon they would have to have Ino as well correct? I was told that he was split to Lacewing...
  8. Does anyone have any pictures of Lacwing chicks that are green series...I have 4 chicks the first is going to be a Light Green Normal but the 2 middle ones had pitch red eyes when they were born now they don't have red eyes. The father is a Light Green Normal split to Lacewing and the mother is a Light Green Cinnamon Oplaine. I would post pics but I need a new memory card
  9. Sorry my computer was down for 4 days and exams are a few days away so I have been busy. I am just thinking of putting 2 birds together but not sure of their qualities. I have a pair up for breeding now and the first egg should be here by the end of next week. She is a Cinnamon Light Green Opaline hen and he is a Light Green Normal. I will post some pictures when I have time probably tomorrow or later today. I have to go study I will be back Thanks
  10. I hope you guys don't mind that Im back but I missed this forum. Is it alright if I come back because I need some help with my show budgie breeding? I realized what I had done before or said was wrong and the bird should have recieved vet care since I'm not a vet yet...but after thinking about it. It was not the right thing to do because she could have died and I really didn't meen to call her a stupid egg bound budgie I was just mad. Do you guys forgive me? Im not sure if this should be in the breeding section or off topic but I will post it here.
  11. Thanks Norm & Lisa. I wasn't planning on joining another budgie forum I have been a member of Talk Budgies - left that, I am a member of Just budgies but haven't been active there because I liked this forum alot better. I don't care if you want to chase me around or what ever but I'm done here so bye for now.
  12. Oh thats nice...thanks for your advice. So basically you guys don't want me here. Thats fine I can find my information elsewhere I shouldn't have posted that stupid post on that egg bound budgie. I knew some people would flip out...big mistake. I am responsible I'm not going to spend over $100.00 on a budgie I paid $10.00 for no way. I love animals and all. I want to be an avian veterinarian myself but guess what? I fixed it myself and it took a little hot water and a few drops of vegetable oil. Her hearts still beating, shes sitting on a perch, eating and drinking. She is absolutely fine and I saved my self hundreds of dollars and a trip to the vet. Just for note about all these young members I'm young myself if you haven't noticed. I'm 15 and that is pretty young in my book so I don't know what you guys are talking about.... That hen is fine and alive and she killed a nice cock bird of mine. I wish it was the other way around. I haven't been rude here and I caused a whole up roar about a stupid egg bound budgie. All I asked for is if my pair complimented...but thanks for the great advice I'll be sure to remember it. Anyways looks like you guys are done here and I'm done here, make sure you go for your yearly check ups
  13. yeah I'm part of the Essex Kent Cage Bird Society, I already have my budgie bands for 2006 and yes I have looked at the standard its just too difficult to understand.
  14. Well...I set up this pair I don't think they are going to breed but hopefully they do. I might have to get a light for them. They are both in condition and she isn't even going in the nest box... anyways my question is do they compliment each other? I'm trying to produce some good offspring to show in the novice division. This is a Cinnamon Grey Normal hen, shes banded "2006" (she has a bad wing it was broke when she was young and healed crooked, I got her like that from the breeder): http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee18/bi...dgiepair008.jpg http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee18/bi...dgiepair011.jpg http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee18/bi...dgiepair015.jpg http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee18/bi...dgiepair012.jpg This is a Grey Green Normal (I was told he was split to lacewing) he is 3 years old: http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee18/bi...dgiepair022.jpg http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee18/bi...dgiepair024.jpg http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee18/bi...dgiepair025.jpg http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee18/bi...dgiepair028.jpg Do they compliment, what looks good about them...what looks bad? Joey, I have changed your pictures to links as they are far too large, please click on my signature to see the allowable size. I wouldn't think you would want to breed again until you have built up emergency funds in case one of your birds needs avian vet attention again. You MUST put your birds first!
