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
