  1. Yes they are. The Budgerigar Society determines the colours for each year. This year we are using black. http://www.bcv.asn.au/diploma-show-classes-and-ring-colour-guide.html
  2. Bob, most of the exhibition budgerigar breeders have left this forum courtesy of Facebook. Quite sad really as it was quite the buzz some years back. Cheers
  3. Just wondering if any of the members/breeders from years back still look in here or has everyone migrated to Facebook.
  4. Eggs take 18 days to hatch. Sounds like your eggs are not fertile.
  5. Wow, the forum is still here. Amazing. There is a lot of good information on here.
  6. Here is a start. Karen Morgan an Admin on this Facebook Group is the former Admin on here. https://www.facebook.com/groups/BudgiesHelpAndAdvice/
  7. I remember doing my first ever rings. It was scary but then the trick is to get them on when the birds are quite small.
  8. Have seen some exceptional birds at Auctions over the years especially the BRASEA ones but when the dollar gets over $1000 I crawl down in my seat and sit still.

    Hey Jimmy. we are currently in the process of building our new retirement home after selling our last house. No birds or even a bird room yet. It might still be a while.
  10. I know what you mean about Facebook but it sure is a growing phenomena. I have two Facebook Groups, not Budgerigar related, and both have over 18,000 members.
  11. Interesting article here about them from one of the worlds best breeders, Ghalib Al-Nasser http://www.al-nasser.co.uk/article2.htm
  12. A photo would be good

    Thanks Jimmy. Yes I did get a few birds from him.
  14. Facebook certainly seems to have had an effect on a lot of forums that is for sure. Are the Facebook pages Budgerigar related Jimmy??? If so do you know the names of them
  15. Laura Send an email to wildlife.reception@dpipwe.tas.gov.au and tell them what you want to do and they will send you all the information you need
