Introducing Myself To You

Recommended Posts

:emoticon112: Hi all, have just joined I am new to computers and Budgie breeding. I have 3 birds at the moment, I was given 2 and hubby decided they needed an aviary. So I now have approx 3 metre square aviary, with 3 birds in it. Now its up to them. I have viewed your site several times before joining, great clan by the look of it. Hope to post more soon when I get the hang of it. Many thanks Redrobyn

Hello and welcome.

 

3 birds in a 3 by 3 meter aviary... wow! You would get about 80 in there :emoticon112:

 

What gender are your birds? How old are they?

Hi Liv, hubby corrected me it's only 2.8 x2.8 near enough is good enough I say! I have a sky-blue hen, think she has paired with a yellow-wing olive, I'm not up with colours etc yet. and a normal green cock, I've separated him into small cage because he was guarding nest box's blue hen is popping in and out now! Looking good! Robyn p.s don't know ages hoping not to old

you have 3 birds, two cocks and one hen right? Might I suggest the first thing you do is buy another hen. Even numbers always work best.

Hi and welcome. I'd agree with Dave... I'd get another hen, so you have two pairs. But you'll need to quarantine the new hen away from your other birds for 30 days. Then if you add her to the aviary, you'll need more then just two nest boxes, and all at the same high. This is colony breeding and can create many problems such as hens attacking each other and killing chicks etc... As to the age of your birds, it's not wise to breed birds under 12 months of age. I'd find out their age before you breed them. Good luck.

Welcome Robyn. Reading your thread reminded me of myself about 2 years ago. I too started out with a similar sized aviary with 4 budgies.... since then I now have about 40 birds, my husband has built me a fantastic cottage style aviary and I am going to my first budgie club meeting in a few weeks.

 

Have fun here! :D

Hi Dave, I did have a violet hen, but lost her about 24hrs after noticing her fluffed up etc. don't know a vet here yet, took her to pet shop chap who's very good, gave her dose of ? on back of neck, said bring her back if no better next day but she died within hours. What do you do? Only hoping its not something passed to remaining birds. Reading up "stuff " maybe air-sac mite? She had a little squeak at pet shop. thanks for your tip but will wait and see how other birds are before buying newby's. Robyn

Thank's Kazzy, love your aviary, did see your progressive pics when browsing before I joined, great job. Robyn
Have hubby, will have aviary, go girl go...and welcome.
Hi Richo, I'm being greedy and keeping both, hoping to add to one, not the other. Robyn
