      Good news, as long as you are not constantly breeding the same birds

      gail's answer was good. We all do that anthro-po-morph-izing thing - it is natural, but gail is right. The kid's heart is in the right place.

  3. How many times I hear people advising budgies have LIFELONG mating partners.....this is NOT TRUE. ....if it were how could us show breeders pair up various budgies for breeding....

      Obviously they all do, but some of you show breeders, your budgies are just............ well, slutty, and will sleep with anyone. Reminds me of some girls I know - :lol:

      So Kaz gave you this advice Yesterday at 3:22PM. 2 1/2 hours later Squeak asks for a photo. 3 hours after that you state you cannot do photos but you had got a 2nd opinion from breeders who agreed with Kaz. 20 hours later you tell us that you spoke to a Sydney vet and KK and they informed you of the same thing Kaz said. I am sorry for your loss, always sad when the hens attack the young. I am just making the point here with the evidence (not against you, sorry just using your situation to mak...

      Dave_McMinn Hopefully this person learns about genetics before offering more advice. I admire enthusiasm but people need to try to ensure they give only correct information.

  7. budgie breeder on yahoo wants to know what to clean nestwith as he finds dead babies and eggs in nests. Says he's breeding them 6 clutches a year

    1. Dave_McMinn

      Dave_McMinn

      Tell him to clean it with fire and brimstone, as it is important he gets used to these smells and the burning sensation for future years in his life

  8. New budgie is still sick, so gonna fork out all the pocket money I have to pay for the vet bills, and that's if dad can be convinced that taking the poor thing to the vet is better than 'just getting a new one'. There goes that new cage I've been saving up for, and I have enough for it now too :( . So feeling deprssed.

  9. couldnt help myself today, had to buy another budgie for my son

  10. Gave my little guy beetroot, as the old hands suggested. He loves it, but now he looks like an axe murderer!

      lucky you - my aviary looks like a horror movie scene - but they love beetroot

  11. where are Japanese crusted budgies are found and any one of you have have kept or not

    1. Dave_McMinn

      Dave_McMinn

      You are either a bad typer or you are getting some bad information. No such thing as Japanese crusted. You might mean full or half CRESTED.

  12. At least a dozen baby quails running everywhere is Kens Parrot aviary.....little chicks in their striped pyjamas LOL ....talk about prolific breeding just when we dont want them to be .........moving will be fun.

    1. Dave_McMinn

      Dave_McMinn

      I suppose they have plenty of places to hide in that aviary. Good to see that the Dad's are behaving themselves in this regard. Good luck catching them all.
