  1. I purchased this setup off of e-bay 3 weeks ago for $100 and I have made the perch's go front to back in them. I also purchased a large flight cage that is 750 L x 450 W x 450 H from the only pet store we have in town for my 2 tiels for $65 I have seen some flight cages for sale on gumtree their are some nice idea's in this thread that I will have to try with the plywood and turning the cage front upside down.

  5. no inbreeding I only want to breed strong and healthy birds. this is how it all started my wife wanted a budgie and went to a friend who had breed some, she chose a young bird that turned out to be a female. 4 years later I as I pat the bird, she went into the mating position. a short while later she started to lay eggs and incubate them on the cage floor. we decided to get her a mate, we thought the male that we got was too young to mate. turns out he wasnt. added a nest box. get 13 eggs, 8 infertile. she started laying eggs right after we introduced the male before they had mated. only have 1 breeding pair. the others are too young - 10 weeks old I have been looking into purchasing some breeding pairs and some other budgies to add different blood lines and to breed with the ones I decide to keep from the 1st pair. I am planning on starting to breed later this year, I wasnt planning on any more babies from this pair so soon. still learning.. I will be seperating the pair once these eggs have hatched and the dad can look after them.. first one is due to hatch in around 5 days. and I will seperated the sexes once I can work out which sex is which. I think so far that I have 4 males 1 female. I will post some pics of them as soon as I work out how to. I have seen a couple of budgies that I would love to get.. a female grey dom pied and a male violet dom pied Mark
  6. G'Day folks just thought I would say hello. HELLO I joined this site because it has a lot of information on breeding budgies, and I have just started to breed budgies. I had budgies as a kid and have had budgies for my own kids. we have a range of pets, 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 long neck turtles, a tank of fish and a duck. and we started with 1 budgie that started to lay eggs on the cage floor and then sit on them. so we decided to get het a mate and now we have a totale of 7 budgies with more on the way ( 2nd clutch ) I have made a bird room to keep our cats away and to keep the budgies safe i have an old aviary that I am fixing up as well. Cheers Mark
