  1. It might just be my phone but mother looks violet green and dad looks opaline. The pied chick is interesting but I cant tell if its dominant or recessive from the picture. Judging from the photo I am guessing your cousin is colony breeding. If so there may be more than one father to the clutch.
  2. There are some excellent pinned posts in budgie mutations that will answer this question.
  3. Hi JimmyBanks. I have only been a member for around 18 months but have read pretty much every post archived so I feel like I know you already My dream is to breed show quality Australian Yellow Face Blues. I love blues although I own more greens. I have only 12 birds at the moment but will breed some more after summer. Glad you are back I am always keen to learn about show budgies.
  4. Yep the 1.0 are cocks and the 0.1 are hens. Its interesting how much variety you get when you start playing with multiple mutations. Makes you realise that breeding with them should more be for fun than in expectation of a particular mutation being passed on. The expectations are just too small! Great site though.

    New Aviary

    Wow what a fantastic structure withered. I am really enjoying this post. I am yet to make a start on my birdroom but I unfortunately dont have your skills so I will achieve nothing so sophisticated. But yours is very inpirational. Thanks for sharing!
  6. Thanks Ahhh thats better
  7. Hehehehe. The things we do for our little mates Flip! That is really funny albeit necessary
  8. I see other people on here use the smiley faces in their posts. Could someone tell me is there a trick to get them to work? I can't seem to get them working and I love a good smiley face : ) Thanks
  9. Fantastic pictures Birdlove. You were very clever to catch them. I love the final shot. I feel the need to salute him back!
  10. My birds have access to shade all day as a result of a half solid wall in my aviary. If you don't have one, I would set one up using shade cloth. On really hot days, I go into the aviary and mist them with water every 2 hours or so. I also put out a little dish for them to splash about in if they want to. I take this dish away at the end of the day as I don't want them drinking from it once they have bathed in it. When I am talking about hot days, I do it any day when I see them sitting with their wings out off their body. I try to make sure they are never so hot in the aviary that they pant. I have not lost any due to heat yet.
  11. Great to hear some good news for you budgie mad. I hope the chicks fulfill your expectations : )
  12. Great story Flip. I love a happy ending : )
  13. Thanks Rachelm. I will be more aware if I see this in future and will force feed some medicated water immediately. Wysiwyg thanks so much for your detailed answer. I really appreciate your perspective. I am just starting a new business so I dont have much money just now. But if I have further problems I might speak to my vet about a necropsy. Your answer has made me think about the aviary. I think I will change the water dispenser to be sure its not getting dirty through the day between water changes. I always remove fresh foods so I dont think its that. If anymore get quiet and I hospital cage them I will hand feed and water first thing to ensure hydration and energy. Thanks once again to both of you. I feel better now as I feel there is more I can do to help. I hate feeling helpless and having them slip away in front of me like that.
