  1. Hey Kaz, I know this isn't directly related, but I read somewhere on this forum that you need to quarantine birds. I have since been unable to find the page, could you either link me, or breifly explain why it is important and how to do it? I currently have my new budgies seperated from my older budgies. Thanks heaps
  2. oh, that makes sense I have another cage that is approx 60cm wide and has more hieght and depth than the above picture, however it is completely wire. Which would be better? Or will I need to buy/ build a cage that is better suited?
  3. Thankyou Out of interest, if I were to breed one pair next season, what which cock and hen would you suggest and what would the possible colours of the babies be?
  4. 30W x 40H x 50L (cm) sorry, what did you mean by 'not side enough'? did you mean lengthwise? or did you want to see a picture including the side?
  5. Sorry, to clarify, I am setting up a breeding box and there are currently no budgies in it. When I only had the two budgies, I had just attached the nestbox to the top corner of their normal cage, but have since taken it down. The lady said the box was similar to a show cage (in the fact that only one side has wire and the rest is wooden). I haven't attached the nestbox as yet. Below is a photo;
  6. Sorry, I should have said mostly white, not albino. Although I've owned budgies half my life, I've only had them as pets. I'm only just trying to learn the colour names and such now Thank-you!!! All the birds have black eyes, so that means he is a grey cinnamon dom pied cock? Sorry (I'm new to colouring and genetics and such), I must sound stupid, but what is dom? Is that dominant as in genetics?
  7. How do I encourage my budgies to breed? They are both definately OVER 12 months old (I know since I've owned them since April last year [13 months ago])! I'm 99% sure that it is a male and a female. I have the recently bought two more adult budgies as was suggested by a friend - she said it encourages them as they are flock birds. They currently have a nesting box, but they both seem to ignore it. The female has gnawed on the wood chew blocks and the calcium perch. Is this just beak maintance or is it mating signs? The cage is 72 x 62 x 44 cms. I do have a pet dog. Could he be the reason the budgies aren't breeding? The birds are out of the dogs reach, but he ignores them anyway. I have also recently bought a 'show' cage which I intend to set up as a breeding cage. I will probably put it in my room (I wouldn't disturb them much as I practically only use my room to sleep). The main cage is in the family room where pets and people, and thus noise, is quite common. Any suggestions?
  8. Hey everyone,, I'm new to this forum I currently have four budgies,. I have and almost albino cock, a Violet Grey Mauve (I think) cock, a yellow faced sky blue cinnamon (i think) hen, and a skyblue with white wings hen. I will try to upload photos. If I upload photos would you be able to tell me what colours they actually are?
