Nice birds! I love the expression in the second photo of your new cock - it just screams out for a Jimmy Banks funny caption! Actually, I think there are quite a few on the forum who could come with something - HINT HINT!

Whatever happened to our caption contest anyway?

 

For fatty. Spread her seed all over the ground, so she has to move to get it. Give her more veges and try a low fat seed. Canary seed is apparently low fat I think.

Wow! You're certainly expanding your flock... I am starting to understand why all the good looking budgies are never in the pet shop windows... the employees get them all :)

Yep, and I would have bought it too if Jess didn't grab it. A very interesting bird to have in the aviary.

It must have been about 12.30 ish. GenericBlue and myself were on our way home from picking up our birds from MB (who picked up birds from Splat on w/end) How long have you been working there? I got my gorgeous recessive violet pied from there at the start of August. I would have expected you to have snapped him up.

Yeah. You said he is heavily marked. I wondered if this will fade through molts or stay quite black. I'm sure JB waas thinking along those lines too.

i dont know but looks crossed to me

 

i dont know but i prefer the pie although it didnt look violet but the lights in that place are shocking i have brought one bird their last aug one for kassy one for me and i was desperate for a spangle sky hen sometimes they have a special bird but still i pass

their larger birds fantastic to look at and not to badley priced big parrots like conures so on

great for toys , cages ect turtles ,snakes everything but budgies im just to picky these days

i have decided to cull most my pet type and only keep what you call lesser show stock

as i prefer the smaller not large birds but even my pet types are only as big as their bigest birds

sorry i think all the pet shops around the south esten suburbs suck for price and quality but hay they are pet shops and thats what i started to breed for again to suply people with nicer biger healthyer tame birds for way less and any colour the one price and a thats as their is so many people i know buy a pet type for pet and it dies or its wings are cliped and its marked up and sold double the price that was rediculess in the first place this is everywhere not your shop perticularly it sucks and im going to reverlushionize the selling of quality healthy small medium and larger pet type birds and make it fair for all to share the love of these beautiful bubbys

you can buy good show quality breed birds cheeper than some birds they sell for like heaps

theyed want to be goldplated for the price some sell birds for its silly

just my opinion

and now everyone who owns shops are trying to breed this is also not about you darl or your shop but alot now breed and the birds are getting inbreed its so bad mabe you can breed some nice birds for the people of this world to have as pets to jess you have some nice birds the black face one is very nice it may be blackface i did have a picture of one and looked close but could be hibred also hope not for you its beautiful either way and shouldnt cause problems with breeding mabe just life span and could be sterile due to being hibrad if it is let me know if its a true black face if so good catch

looking once again it does seem to be but i have never seen one in the flesh

good luck with your breeding and if you want some bubs ever just ask k

Hybrid? With what? There are no budgie hybrids. No budgie ever slipped behind the vege tray to meet up with that very sexy cockatiel.

 

Big plans there GB - the whole "revolutionise"thing - good luck with that.

 

I really admire your passion and I think you make some excellent regarding pet shops and pricing issues.

i dont know dave mabe a grass parrot ? just looks weird but like i say never seen a real life blackface

as for my revo thing i just breeding for the avrage jo blow so they can enjoy a little friend at a normal price any colour or type lots more are buying off breders and novicts these days over pet shops i just want to be another option for people to choose from

i am not being cocky or insulting and if seems that way didnt mean to just see that prices are getting sky high for a simple pet bird i want to change that a bit in my area :)

there are no budgie hybrids, at all.

 

I agree with your thoughts, I would encourage you to begin breeding good birds first, and let that be your aim. The revolution will take major time, and major people.

 

I do not think you are cocky, and I know what you mean. Like I said, I do agree with a lot of what you are saying.
