  1. I know this is an old post but damn Shannon your birds look awesome. So does the aviary, it is massive now. Really well done.
  2. Its been over a year I think since I posted on this board. I ended up euthanising most of the budgies as they were sick, with French moult. Could not sell them at the risk of passing on disease and could not keep them either. I hope to get back into it one day when I have more time/money. Been working full time for the past year which is good. I think budgie breeding was not successful for me because I had very little money, and not much time. One day I will start again though. I have been on the forum the past week and am going to stay on, its really interesting.
  3. Looks like a 08 south australian bird. A club ring with no engraved initials. They are usually the ones i get, they are cheaper and all I need them for is I.D purposes. You may still be able to track the number through the club they were bought from.
  4. okay The animal i am thinking of feeds mainly off plants, by puncturing and then sucking up the contents. roughly 1-5 mm long. They carry diseases from plant to plant. Once a plant has been attacked by this animal their is white/bronze scarring left behind.

    That grey bird is the biggest ive ever had. Bigger than all the adults. And his chest sticks out, but cant feel any bones or anything so hes not skinny. I've seen it a few times before.

  15. Thankyou very much number 2 is definitly fat hen, confirmed today by one of the groundskeepers. Weed 1 resembles Wahlenbergia, so its very possible. Thankyou very much.
  16. The plants are a duranta and an indian hawthorne. Just need the weeds identified now. Any horticulturists here? Does anyone know of any common weeds in the brassicaceae family?
  17. Quoted. Canola oil comes from the rape seed, which is part of the mustard family of plants. Rape is the most toxic of all food-oil plants. Like soy, rape is a weed. Insects will not eat it; it is deadly poisonous! The oil from the rape seed is a hundred times more toxic than soy oil.
  18. You still have that blue dominant pied shannon?
  19. Hi I have 3 weed species and 2 plants I need identified. I'm hoping their are some members on here that may know some or all of the species I post. Weed 1 - Is a climbing groundcover. Has purple star shaped flowers. Very thin stems. Weed 2 - Has diamond shaped leaves. Succulent-like stems. Buds are cirle with 4 points, directly inline with eachother . Weed 3 has hairy stems and leaves. Thats about it for this one. Plant 1 is a shrub about 2 meters high, has variegated green and yellow foliage. Orange berries. Maybe a variag
