  1. lol, the store I am talking about WAS that ***** store. ...and I applied for the job at the Ipswich one before it opened, and was told I was over qualified (now working as a domestic cleaner ). I have a bachelor of animal science, have worked for WIRES for years, have been handraising baby parrots and am a licensed horse trainer... as well as owning dogs, cats, birds, turtles and peacocks. They obviously wanted someone who has no idea which end of an animal to feed.
  2. Missy, the sales staff were both in their early 20's at a guess. BudgiesRCool, you are on the money. I also saw at the same chain but different store, a young couple looking at $900 puppies, they were advertised as "designer dogs" AKA cross-breeds... (these were some kind of bulldog X possibly sharpai) and the one they were interested in had a massive umbilical hernia, bigger than a 50cent piece and raised about 15mm, almost certainly would need surgery in the future. I heard them question the lump and the girl laughed at them like they were fools and said all puppies have a belly
  3. here's a front shot of the yellow faced blue
  4. I just thought it was pathetic that these two women ganged up on this lady. I wonder how many sales they make working this way. I called the manager again, no luck... so I called the head office to make a formal complaint about the pushy sales tactics used, the misinformation provided, and the deceit. Nobody who had half a clue would suggest that the bird offered was a baby. I have a couple of young girls I was trying to sell for $10, the boys went fast but nobody is really interested in girls as pets... never in a million years would I lie about what they are to make a sale. They a
  5. okay, so Blackie is definitely a double factor spangle, she has a white ring around her eyes
  6. KAZ, does that mean they are not pied? Dad is isn't he? They have solid coloured bodies so I was surprised that they were classed as pied anyway
  7. I just checked, mum has black eyes, I thought she was albino but apparently not. The yellow face blue pied has a new home, see my thread in the pet shop section
  8. Last weekend we were out browsing at a local shopping centre. As always we wandered into the pet store (well known chain store), only to overhear two staff convincing a lady to buy a budgie rather than a couple of zebs. I stopped nearby to eavesdrop, and I am completely disgusted a what ensued. The lady was quite elderly, and was looking for a companion bird. They advised that zebs were too independent and she should get a budgie (fair enough comment) The lady then told them she was scared of getting bitten, and therefore woud go home and consider it further with the help of her family
  9. Blackie and Harley have finally raised their first family after a few hiccups. They had 2 infertile clutches and were about to go back into the aviary but we discovered a lonely egg in their box and gave them one last go. 4 eggs resulted, and two were fertile We have spent a lot of time handling these little kids... and they came out of their box on their own yesterday. They are having a nibble at the potted grass we rotate amongst the cages, as well as the millet sprays but mum and dad are still keeping their bellies full This is mum, Blackie This is Harley Kids, unn
  10. Freebie is a Boy, the flash made those white rings unfortunately, I just had to run out and recheck... (Laughing out loud) I'll get a daylight shot of Whiskey, including her back tomorrow and see if that helps
  11. We figured we would only get greens and greys from these two, but this is their first brood and they did really well as first time parents and they are checking out the box again so we'll leave them to it
  12. This little budgie is known as Whiskey, I think she is a girl, she's not very old but I recently had to handraise quite a few very young budgies after a breeder contacted me because his birds wouldn't feed their young. I bought Whiskey from the same breeder as a "hot water bottle" for the younger ones ( I have a brooder By The Way) and Whiskey also assisted with feeding them which was a bit of a surprise, but great when I was weaning them as Whiskey showed them all what to do and topped up the ones who were struggling.... 7 babies and they all survived! Can anyone tel me what colour she
  13. Hi, I'd like to introduce our latest additions, courtesy of Mash and McGyver who have been our pets for a little over a year and who fueled our budgie passion. This is mum and dad, McGyver is the grey and was supposed to be a boy but we love her all the same, she scored her name because she is forever playing with whatever she can find (paper clips, bits of thread, rubber bands etc) We bought Mash because he is the brightest green budgie I have ever seen, although the flash does make him look even brighter. He is extremely friendly now, and lands on whoever is around, but when we first
  14. 1. How old was your budgie (s) when you purchased him/her McGyver - Hand-raised from 12 days old Mash - Purchased when he was about 6 months old 2. If you tamed your budgie right out of the nest, when did you start taming and handling the chick? McGyver was handled constantly from 12 days 3. Was your budgie tame a little or not at all? McGyver has always been extremely tame, flies to you and always looking for attention Mash was extremely flighty and bitey when we got him, the type that would latch on and then chew..ouch! 4. When you tamed your budgie was he the only budgie, o
  15. I checked and there is definitely no pin feathers yet, but since the scabs only fell off last weekend, I am probably just being impatient. Just a quick question about how to resize the pics, when I uploaded them they were the right size, but when I linked them from photobucket they were too big. How do I check what size they are going to be before I link them from photobucket. Thanks
