  1. Hi I have been asked whether it is okay to feed a budgie cheese. She feeds her budgie cheese and says it hasn't made any difference to his poops. I would have thought that it might have given him the runs but she says there is no problem. She wants an answer, what does everyone think? Thanks.
  2. Hi everyone I am trying to find out when the next BRASEA sale/auction night is in the Revesby, Sydney area. Thanks.
  3. Two of my young hens have both died while they were sitting on eggs. How can I tell if they were egg bound? Are their any other diseases pecular to breeding hens?
  4. I need advice with my budgies. In the last 10 days 2 of my young hens have died whilst sitting on eggs. They were in the same aviary. They looked healthy and then a few hours later they were on the floor of the aviary then dead. I have not had this problem before and don't want to lose anymore. Can anyone help me.

They appeared healthy, then a few hours later on the floor very sick, then they died. I have never had this problem before, can someone please help before I lose more. They were in the same aviary.
  6. Thank you for all the information everyone.
  7. Do you give 5ml to 1 litre once a week? What are the health benefits?
  8. I have been told that Cider Vinegar in their drinking water once a week is beneficial to budgies health. Has anyone heard of this. I don't want to try it until I know it is safe.
  9. Your budgies are breeding very well. Do you breed them all year round, I notice you are in Mackay? My budgies are madly breeding and I'm in Sydney. I don't usually breed this time of year because it is so cold overnight. Do other breeders in southern states breed in winter?
  10. I am curious, what would you call some of the darker greens are they olive?
  11. I don't have a photo of him, but he is a skyblue normal with a white head. Its not the colour I need to see, but his type....build, physique, features etc. A photo will really help Will try for a photo this weekend.
  12. I don't have a photo of him, but he is a skyblue normal with a white head.
  13. Some photos would help.... Enclosed are some photos: http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y218/Larainewiles/Show%20budgies/showbirdgreen1.jpg http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y218/Larainewiles/Show%20budgies/showbirdgrey2.jpg http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y218/Larainewiles/Show%20budgies/showbirds1.jpg Thanks.
  14. I have bought a blue show budgie with a white head. However I don't know whether to put him with my blue/green yellowface or the grey yellowface to get the best colours, or even a mauve white face. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  15. Thanks for all your help lonebudgie. Is there any significance with the spots near the face?
  16. okay will do. Can anyone tell me what mutations they are? Thanks.

    Hen Or Boy

    Cool then I will keep on talking - she has been so noisy over the past couple of days - definetely not a pretty chrip too! Do boy budgies sound pretty from the start? Or does that come with time? We have lots of birds in the gum trees out the front, so I think that she is mocking them too. I'd say a boy, the cere looks pink and is changing to blue.
  18. Hi All I am enclosing photos of the show budgies that won't breed. Would love any advice. http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y218/Lara...owbirdgrey2.jpg http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y218/Lara.../showbirds1.jpg http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y218/Lara...wbirdgreen1.jpg http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y218/Lara...owbirdgrey1.jpg I hope the photos aren't too big.
  19. I bought 3 nice big females early last year, and put them with my males. I have them in a small aviary with a few others so they could pick and choose, but their ceres haven't turned brown. The males are ready to go, nice and blue. I also have ordinary budgies in another aviary that are breeding like rabbits. I was hoping eventually to introduce some bigger offspring in with them to produce some bigger birds, but things aren't happening. Help is needed.
  20. I thought that baby males had a pink cere and baby females were whitesh blue, but someone told me the reverse. I was also told that English budgies were show budgies, but now I have it all confirmed. Thanks. I have 3 female show budgies that I hoped would breed this summer and they haven't. I'm told they are harder to breed, does anyone have any suggestions to "get them in the mood".
  21. Thanks for the welcome everyone. If they can be sexed really young, how can I tell.
  22. My name is Laraine and I am new. I have 20 budgies and have a couple of questions. At what age can baby budgies be sexed and what is the difference between Australian budgies and English budgies. Thanks for your help.
