Hi

 

Is french moult spreadable? Or do the birds need to be born with it?

 

Should I isolate these birds still or are they safe in the breeding room?

These questions have been asked before and there is always many many different answers.

BUT I have had french moult birds amongst my others with no problems at all.

Hi

 

I bought a new camera yesterday. I have a problem that maybe someone here could help me with.

I put the camera up to the bars of the cage, and put the macro on without flash. I then zoom in a fair bit so I can get a nice close up shot of the birds cere, but every photo I take zoomed in is blurry and a red light beeps. Does anyone know how I can stop this happening?

If in doubt always read the manual

From what you described, the camera is focusing on the bars in front - instead of the bird. You can tell if this is the case the bars will be sharp and the bird blurry. You may be able to change your camera setting to a manual focus to get around this problem. An easier way is to change the metering to Spot Metering (for Focus) but you can also change the light meter to Spot focus and this may help too. not all cameras have these functions though.

 

It could also be that you are too close, check in the manual the minimum recommended distance for the Macro setting from camera to subject. Make sure you have good light so that photos without a flash don't leave the lens open for to long as this will show camera shake and be blurry.

 

Hope this helps :blush:

Hi 2budgies.

The manual says 80 cm or less for macro.

 

The bars in front are clear as crystal but the bird is blurry as anything, so I beleive you are right.

 

I will see if I can find the spot meter or the light meter button.

 

Thanks very much for replying.

 

Also, if I take pictures in my breeding shed with flash on, the pictures are all very bright and all you can see is a bright light. If I dont use flash than the pictures are blurry. Is this because my shed has no light?

I've figured out how to do spot metering. Theirs an option that you can choose, either spot metering or square metering. This camera is so wierd. Im just going to take 500 photos and hope that atleast one is good.

 

Thanks for the help everyone.

I've put 2 pet budgie pairs in the breeder cages today. They are all very very wild (untame) so I'm not holding much hope. Their cage resembles the bush as much as I could get, so they get all the privacy they can.

I will update.

If I remember, one of the parents was a grey green and the other a sky, you mentioned olive but that is not possible, dark green is but because of the way the green looks and the check patches being silvery it would be a green grey, a dark green is bright but medium colored. Not to say this chick doesn't carry any dark factors though :rofl: so he could be a grey dark green.

okay thanks very much. on the thread I posted it on a few members said dark green and a few said grey green. This babies tail is black so wouldnt that make it an olive? arent grey greens supposed to have black tails.

In your topic on the TCB baby you stated his tail was dark blue and now you say black ?

Sorry that was an error. The budgies tail is dark blue. So that would make it an olive or dark green. Grey greens are supposed to have black tails.

 

I will just wait until the baby matures to find out its mutation.

 

Thank you all. for the help.
