  1. Looking for english(show/stock) budgies, the closer to Gympie the better. I'm also interested in large pet/bush budgies. All colours. pm for contact.
  2. The club I'm in lets members borrow show cages if they are just starting out. Thanks for the tip, I'll be sure to get the right ones when I invest in some
  3. Thanks Taboo and Splat! I am very happy and so keen to learn more more more about show budgies. I have heard some really great info of some really great people at the show today and I'm anxious to put it all into practice, patience is a virtue!
  4. I am so excited right now! I just got back from seeing my grey/green spangle hen at the show and look!!
  5. Thanks everyone I really hope these guys will be my ticket into the world of show budgies!
  6. Thanks so much GB, very very helpful. I am going to read up on these colours and see what I find out. I'm happy that ones a violet! I just thought she was some kind of blue!
  7. Good to hear! He is really impressive to look at. When I was dropping the grey green hen at a show today(hoping for some tips from the breeders and judges) and looked at the other bird in my untrained eyes it seemed as if Neo would have held up to the competition. Thanks for the input! Would anyone be able to spell the new birds colours out to me? and possibly what I could expect as far as future chicks go?
  8. Here is my little collection of budgies so far let me know what you think of them & help with colours would be great. Oh and the blue hens cere seems strange to me, does anyone else think so? The cinnamon is Uni, with one foot. Blue Hen (Skye) Blue Cock (Neo) Grey Green Spangle Hen & Cock (Razzle & Dazzle) Green Hen & Cock ( Uni & Grim ) A few more of Skye and Neo..
  9. Thank you both for the advice. Maesie, thanks! I hope she does too. Uni(decided to call her that for obvious reasons ) and her mate have been put in my little aviary(no other birds) and Ive tried to set it up as comfortably as possible for her. I'll see how she goes and if she seems to be coping fine I may end up trying to breed her sometime down the track but for now she is fine.
  10. You read the title right.. I was shocked out of my mind when I brought my four new birds home tonight to discover the best bird is missing a foot!, I was in tears a bit because I felt so bad that she had suffered with this! anyway it is healed and is not recent and she seems to cope fine. Obviously we rang the previous owner(well my Dad did as I was still pretty shocked) and they were genuinely surprised and offered a refund or the two female quails we were going to buy for free. I have decided to keep her regardless of her foot or lack of, issue. I just want her to be as happy and comfortable as possible and if that means she will not be able to be a breeding bird, so be it. I will give her a good home anyway. What I'd like to know is have any of you ever seen this before or dealt with it?
  11. Thanks Kaz, I expected as much. I thought it would be worth a go anyway, Im not hopeful though..
  12. I'm buying two new pairs and budgies and one apparently has eggs.. how exactly would I go about bringing them home eg. best ways to transport and settle them in? Also I'm wondering if there are any chances of the fertile eggs(if any) surviving the move? Gem
  13. Ah, that is a shame. A lovely offer if only I was closer..
  14. Im in a cage bird club, I live in a small town we don't have a budgie club. There are a couple of pet budgie breeders in the club.
  15. English Budgies/Show Budgies, whatever floats your boat Thanks
  16. I'm looking for another pair of english budgies, nothing too expensive please as I'm a teen just starting out. Looking for normals and spangles only preferably not split for anything. Let me know if you have anything or can put me on to someone that does. Also I'd be interested in buying two single breeding cabinets or a double. Thanks, Gem
  17. Thanks so much for all the advice and help everyone, Ill take out the box for now and just let them be(oops, over eager teen wanting babies I guess!). How much would you think these guys are worth? I think I got a really good deal on them but seeing as they are the first I've ever bought I'm not really sure. I'm joing my local cage bird club next week and going to a meeting so I'm sure to learn some stuff there too I hope I can get a pair of blue normals as my next two so I can put the babies of both pairs together eventually.. getting ahead of myself a bit me thinks *laugh out loud*
  18. Again, thanks for the welcomes Hopefully Ill get to know all of you and your birds better as time goes on!
  19. Thanks everyone for the replys.. Ill try to answer everyones questions, forgive me if I miss some. They are not related as far as I know and if they are I think it would be a ways back. They both have iris rings although its not very wide and/or noticible. I am really confused then because the breeder gave me dates they were born etc. and they had a really nice set up and alot of very good show birds, what could they get out of miss presenting thier age? Should I be taking the nesting box out? How can I be certain that they are only as young as you say? I am worried now
  20. Thanks for the welcome Nerwen, Spangles are also my favourite(possibly obvious?) but pieds are a close second.
  21. I thought some of you would like to give me some perspective on the quality of my two new birds. I bought them from a good show breeder a couple of hours away, Im just starting out so if there is something you'd like to point out I'd really appreciate if you explain what you are seeing so I can learn as much as possible. Both of them are grey green spangles the cock was born 2/2010 The parents, cock was a greygreen spangle and hen blue normal, The hen 3/2010 The parents, cock greygreen spangle and hen a lutino. I am told the cock may be split blue? Let me know what you think!
  22. Hi everyone, I have been lurking this forum for a while but now that I've aqquired my first two budgies I thought I had better join! I guess I'll start with a bit about me then a bit about the birds Im a teen girl living in SE QLD I've had alot of pet birds before but the two I just bought are my first 'breeding birds'. The birds are a pair of greygreen spangle english budgies I bought from a show breeder a couple of hours away, they are both blue ringers so about a year old. I am hoping to really focus on spangles and hopefully some pieds down the track. I'll post photos in another thread because I'd like a critique on them, haha. Anyway looking forward to learning as much as I can and getting into the world of budgies!
