  1. Interesting looking back. For those that don't know, iv'e sold all the birds and changed the Aviary into a storage shed. Breeding the birds and showing them was great. But they do need attention that at the moment in my life I can't give them. Maybe in the future I'll return. Thanks all for the support and I hope you do well with your birds.

    Sherlock The Wire fronts are customed made by a Breeder at Gatton. I have long lost contact with him. Sorry. Thanks to all those that have bought my birds in the past. I hope that they have assisted you in your breeding programs. It is an eerie feeling in my back yard. I had nearly 80 birds at the end and they are now gone. It is very quiet. Thank you all again. If you have questions you can still email me and i'll help where I can.

    Hi Budgie_Mad I started breeding Budgies back in the 70's But seriously from 2005 when I joined this Forum. Many of my Tips are in the posts here on the forums. I am giving them up for now but will probably get back into them later in life. They are for the time being. Thank you Robyn

    This is one of my DEC
  8. some Budgie variety have Orange Beaks some have Flesh coloured beaks. Some Males have blue cere's some have pink cere's Same as the legs.
  9. If your going to the Vet, don't put any water or food in the cage. Put a sheet of clean paper on the bottom of the cage. The vet might want to test the droppings. You can carry the water and food to give on the way home. Remember that Budgies can go days with out water.
  10. Budgies can bond but you can break the bonds by separating them for 7 days. Some are more difficult if they can hear the other bird. If i pair two birds in a breed cage (no nest box) and they don't start to feed each other in two weeks I break them up and try different partners.

    Going to pair the dark eyes Nerwen. I have a love of them. I accidently paired a DF Spangle to a recessive so all the offspring were Spangle/rec. Going to pair these to the dark eyes to see if I can improve the breed.

    Thanks Robyn. Yes is see that it's been quiet on here.
  13. Please remember that Budgies if given a good choice of seed, fruit and veg will eat what they want/need. I've seen Birds in the breeding cage throw out one type of seed while laying but eat it during feeding the chicks. Some breeders do give the birds each type in separate dishes for this reason. It stops waste.
  14. lol there is a section in the back of the book that is very technical but most of the book isn't bad. I got my copy from a pet store.

    It's been over a year since I've visited this post. I haven't bred an birds this year. Been too Busy. But now have the urge to get it cleaned up and have bred a few over Christmas.
  16. After breeding for one or more rounds. I put the hen in an breeding cage (with out a nest) with other hens to settle down for a few weeks before returning back to the flight. To pair up, I look for a hen that is coming into season. I'll catch her and place into a show cage. I'll then check her parentage and catch the best related cock bird for her. These birds are places in show cages around her so that i can compare features and pick the best match from there. If the hen isn't coming into season, there is no good pairing her up.
  17. A Guide to Colour Mutations and Genetics in Parrots (Hard Cover) THE PARROT GENETICS BIBLE Avian geneticist, Dr Terry Martin BVScpresents this 296-page title featuring 700 colour photographs gathered from the contributions of international specialist parrot mutation breeders. The comprehensive text on bird genetics, mutations and combinations of mutations is both approachable and easily understood Over 80 species of parrot are discussed with numerous examples of breeding outcomes to assist the breeder in understanding how various mutations can be bred and developed. The underlying objective throughout this book is Terry's attempt to standardise the naming of colour mutations internationally. All in all a compelling read that is a major reference source Presented in three sections, Terry Martin takes the reader through a comfortable and absorbing introduction to Understanding the Basic Principles of Mutations and Colour Genetics in the first two parts Part three is for the adventurous, being the technical manifest of genetics in parrots The information has been supported throughout with a plethora of colour photography CONTENTS Part 1 Understanding Mutations Understanding Basic Genetics Establishment of New Mutations Primary Colour Mutations Key to Naming Mutations Part 2 Combinations of Mutations Part 3 Scientific Investigation of Colour Morphs/Loci for Colour in Parrots Combination Colours Index of Primary Mutations by Species I Highly recommend geting this one if you are interested in Genetics. I have a copy and it helps.
  18. Try a mixture of chopped up Carrots, Mung Beans, Snowpea Sprouts, Celery, corn and spinach leaves. They will go for this and is very health. You can give this at night to breeding pairs an in the nursary cage. Just take out in the morning before it gets warm.
  19. Thanks Dazzler for your comments. I've been out for a while with other interests. Hope the Nationals when well for you this year. SQBBA has the pleasure of putting on next year at Toowoomba.
