  1. Thankyou everyone, at least i have my other two beautiful budgies and two amazing Scarlet-chested parrots to get me through this bad time.
  2. Today, Rosie, my most loved bird has had its life shortened to this point. Yesterday whilst my mum was putting the other bird in with the breeding pair, the cat must of snuck through and hid in the garage. That night she went to a concert and i went to my dads, we returned home today and had found that william ( the black cat) was next to the breeding cage with the breeding box slightly moved, i also found the male breeding budgie on top of the other girls cage and the cat fiercly looking at it, i had no sight of rosie, and immedietly put the cat out side and began to search for rosie. I looked all through all the nestboxes i had and the cage everywhere, but couldnt find her. ! i then saw a few feathers (tailfeathers) and looked behind the mirror and found a pile of feathers. alot of them, im guessing that the cat ate the bird fully because i cant find rosie anywhere. Rosie you will be greatly missed and my favourite, ill miss you. <3
  3. hi, thankyou for your reply, i gave her a drop just in case. yes i am guessing this is near the end, it has been going for a while but shes looking alot better now.
  4. If its her second clutch then it should be fine just make sure you provide enough calcium for the eggs. After that you should give her a rest. Sorry if im wrong, please correct me if i am.
  5. this is her today, her cere is a bit more crusty
  6. okay great, i put card board over it and she is just starting to make a hole. once she gets through that can be her reward (being in there) hahaha
  7. thankyou. i set it up as you said and placed the nest box outside but they can still see it. Thankyou alot, but how long do you think it is until she is in condition.?
  8. thankyou BJ i did all your 'corrections' haha. how long do i take the box out? when will she be at her peak condition? cheers
  9. Hi, i have set up a breeding cage for my budgies and i was just curious to see if they are in a good condition to breed. Here is the picture of the cage. They have the following: Finch flight cage Cuttle bone Water with 2 drops of Avi-Drops (Multivitamin and added iodine) Calcium block Grit and Charcoal block Budgie Mix with added breeder pellets and Safflower seeds. Sprouted seed twice a week. Vegies Monday,Wednesday, Saturday. Egg and biscut crumble Tuesday. Normall egg with shell on Sunday. Natural Branch. Nest box Placed outside of the cage with wood shavings. Millet friday. As you can see they love the millet haha Here is their seed and pellet diet. here are the budgies are they in condition? Male: Female: Note:The picture of the breeding cage was taken a week ago and have bought a number of new things for the cage. Thankyou, any comments would be great
