  1. Meaning the overcrowding you see where birds can not all perch, perhaps 30 maybe more in one of those breeding cages. Absolutely heart breaking. But back to marion, i mean she is a joke right? Selling our beloved budgies for bioresearch!!! [posted 23.48 yesterday]

     

    and to those asking where the babies to be bred are kept , they'll stay there for six months (which is CRUEL and not following YOUR STANDARDS) until ready for breeding.

    As a breeder and a businessman I need to separate the birds to be bred from birds to be picked up by pet stores.

    Hope this is spacious enough for you all .


  2. Oh my... how different the breeding of budgies is over there in comparison to here in Australia. :o

     

     

     

    Those philly birds live in isolation compared to bird places I have seen in the western suburbs here... before anyone gets too excited.

    Meaning what Richo ? :)

    thats the difference between breeding for profit and breeding for enjoyment and challenge

    we are lucky in this country

    we have things alot easyer

    i am not condoning the breeding of budgies at such young ages

    and they are way to young

    nor do i condole the breeding of birds in such a manner

    the birds clearly have no were to fly perch to perch

    and in my veiw this is very cruel

    but thats me

    i want to thank you for posting these pics as it shows us what the mass production of birds and how it is set up really is like

    i always wondered what a bird factory looked like

    and now i know

    birds lay better after a year old they lay more eggs to a clutch and they also feed the young better

    if you just tryed this with even just a few birds you would see im right

    you would benefit more in profit as you would produces more chicks bigger and healthier due to the mum and dad feeding better

    and your birds would benefit in health

    i understand you need to breed them as for demand

    but you would have more birds if you did wait the extra time

    i did see some boxes closed off and they were pretty clean so u must look after them why not go one more step

    and let the birds mature a bit longer as the benefits are and will over ride the bit of cash flow you may lose in between

    you could try it with some birds and when you see the good results you could slowly change your whole breeding colony

    to being the desired age

    as i said benefiting you and your birds

    again thanks for sharing you have some lovely birds

    i would also add another perch for them to fly across to keep their wings exicized

    toughs perches are good idea by way easy to take out and clean

     

    well hope you at least think about letting just a few birds maturer to 1 year at least 10 months if you can do that then at least they will be

    11 months when they lay after pairing and 12 when raissing the hatched chicks

     

     

    gb, no doubts you almost made me cry with this post...alot of love put into that.. i agree... please dont have budgies llike that amount if you annot provide the best conditions for them...i do hope that you keep them in a larger cage with more room to fly to at least twelve months... its when they breed best.. breeding them too young may cause them to have breeding problems..then you need to pay vet expenses etc. and you may lose the poor unfortunate bird in some way..ALSO they have utterly no room in those breeding cages..it is quite creul. PLEASE dont have birds like that for bioreasearch if you want, you can read this....

    they are beautiful birds you have...simply adorable

     

     

     

    LOL !

    Alright IM A JOKE .... and the joke I created is the reason why my family's eating 3x a day 7 days a week .

    By The Way, BIORESEARCH is the largest petshop here in our country .

     

    If all of you guys hated me and think Im cruel , then that's for all of us Filipino parakeet breeders , Im breeding by our countrymen's standard , not yours AND THAT IS THE STANDARD BREEDING CAGE AVAILABLE HERE IN THE COUNTRY.

     

    and RICHO Those birds you saw are the ones for sale .

     

    ohh one thing more , bird pair's ratio for EGGBOUND is 1 is to 100 pairs that's within this year.

     

    Hope you guys know something about EVOLUTION.

    my dad's been breeding parakeets even before I was born and I am following same standard that he follows. My dad have his own flocks and my 10 original breeding pairs came from him.

     

    havent had any idea that posting my bird's pics would make me start hating this forums. anyways who cares ?? Im cruel cause I am not breeding by your STANDARDS right?


  3. Oh my... how different the breeding of budgies is over there in comparison to here in Australia. ^_^

     

     

    as I've said breeders will start breeding parakeets at the age of 3 to 4 months .

     

    with show budgerigars , they'll wait for 6 months before breeding them , we count the months the birds stayed on the flight ...not from the day of being hatched .


  4. Thanks a lot for the wisdom .

     

    That's why I love this forum so much. Because there's a lot of nice people like you guys .

     

     

    and ghazzigh , well at least now you know I've got lovebirds to feed.


  5. Marlon, you obviously breed on a commercial basis .....quantity breeding. I seriously doubt that some of those birds are 6 months. To me some of them are 3-4 months. With 450 birds you would lose track of each one and its exact age surely.

     

    If that's what you believe..

     

    actually 450 is my last count. that was 3 months ago.

    anyways thanks a lot for the comments.


  6. Ill breed them as soon as they are 6 months of age ..

     

     

     

    :(:(:(

     

    I think I'm the only one here in the whole province willing to wait for 6 months (that's 6 months stay in the flight / 8 months after being hatched) to breed those birds , most breeders I know will breed them after 4 months of stay on the flight (6 months / 6 months and half after hatching)

     

    Yeah , have market for the babies.

     

     

    By the pictures many of those birds who have been put down for breeding would only JUST be 3 months old...

    Birds should not be bred until 12 months of age?

    As already asked why do you produce on such a large level? where do your babies go?

     

     

     

     

    3 months Olddd??????

     

    I think I will have to use a cannon d6_ _ camera for you to see the parakeets clearly .

    Here in the philippines , if you breed those parakeets after 12 months (that's 12 months stay on the parakeet flight) they won't lay a single egg for a lifetime.

     

    buyers come here every now and then .

    they came from BIORESEARCH , Manila aquatic supply , local petstores etc


  7. there a lutino and yellow fischer on the 1st 3rd and 4th pics

     

    liby , which ones are babies?

     

    been breeding parakeets for 13 years now and I definitely won't breed any baby parakeets . If you are refering to the 1st picture on the 2nd post , then there's really 2 babies there with their mom , another baby 3rd to the last picture . not to good in taking photos .


  8. right dave , just got home from work , its night here in the Philippines right now , I took those pics a while ago at 530pm .. ,..

  9. Yeah the colors .. just that the onlhappy that the green budgie pair that I have is the color of the wild budgies in australia ... :greenb: :rofl:

     

     

    with the perch while travelling , that's actually true , I also tried usin perches travelling and I can see how my budgies falls from the perch to the bottom of the cage , and they sometimes will have a broken wing ..

    Really?

    cinnamon spangle and a recessive pied? I really love that bird in your sig .. I also have light green recessive pied and a cinnamon .. Havnt tried pairing them up before.

     

    thanks for the info .. may I see the parents of that lovely bird of yours?

     

    :blink:


  10. Yah. the perches , thanks for the reminder guys .. The long perch is located from where I was standing from , guess I need someone to teach me something about photography :blink:

     

    Here are the pics of other baby budgies to be delivered to a local petshop here ..

    DSC00144.jpg

     

     

    Why are these ones all over the ground? Don't they have enough perches either? Or are they too young to sit on perches?

     

     

     

    they are about to be delivered to a petshop. Adding up some perches while travelling on rough roads here in our country won't do anything different..

     

    :rofl:

     

    I also know what bush budgies are , Just wanna show you guys the only show type pair that I have that looks the same as a bush budgie...

     

    By The Way , thanks pearce and elly ...

    Appreciate it .

     

    Pearce: I really love the budgie in your sig , what's the color of their parents? I;ve been trying to produce one like that for 3 years now ,I tried using a Spangle mom which is an offspring of 2 lutinos x an opaline olive colored dad.. without any success..

  13. From what I can find in my Encyclopedia Botanica I reckon that tree is a Peltophorum pterocarpum. Common names are Golden Flame Tree; Flame Of Malaya.

     

    A native of Qld, NT, Malaysia and the Phillippines. Evergreen growing to 17m with a spread of about 4m. Leaves are Opposite Pinnate and fern like with 2cm long leaflets. Flowers are yellow, with crinkled petals and occur in large terminal sprays and appear from spring to summer. Fruiting bodies are brown pods.

     

    Does this match your tree?

     

    This book does not say if poisonous of not.

     

     

    True , we call it as FIRE TREE here in the Philippines

    I have'nt seen any birds here eating the leaves , about the flowers , native finches here loves it .


  14. Mineral blocks

     

    "Most mineral blocks on the market are hard. Here is a basic recipe you can work

    with. Plaster-of -Paris is the hardening element. Try adding less of the plaster-of-

    Paris than the recipe calls for.

    2 cups plaster-of-paris

    1 tablespoon calcium phosphate

    1/4 teaspoon iodized salt

    1/4 cup blue mineral grit

    1 tablespoon of trace minerals

    Trace minerals can be obtained from a veterinary supply house. The calcium phosphate

    can be purchased from a pet shop or supply house.

    Mix the above ingredients with just enough water to make a very thick paste. The

    mixture is then poured into ice cube trays until it starts to set up. While it is still

    soft, bend a piece of wire into a (u) shape. Place the wire down in the center of the

    cube. After drying hard, the wire will make it possible to fasten the mineral block to

    a wire cage. Make sure blocks dry completely before using."

    Plaster of Paris is a synthetic, man made material, which is composed essentially of

    plaster or plastic. It is often used to make the non cement walls of garages or

    basements. The material is non toxic and will not harm the birds if they chew/eat off

    of your mineral block. Plaster of Paris is a stable material, so the mineral block

    will be sturdy for your birds to use.

     

     

    Really catched my attention , here in the philippines they are selling calcium block $US.40 cents each .

    And this will definitely be an addition to my savings if I will be the one to make my own calcium block

     

    may sound silly but ,

    Is it okay to replace Plaster of paris with white cement?

    If not , what other hardening material can I use to replace plaster of Paris?
