Wow, quite a few cages there.

 

How many breeding pairs do you have down at a time?

 

Did you take those pics at night? Seems dark.

I hope those aren't all of your breeding pairs? many of those birds are only babies themselves and shouldn't be bred???? :P

there a lutino and yellow fischer on the 1st 3rd and 4th pics

 

liby , which ones are babies?

 

been breeding parakeets for 13 years now and I definitely won't breed any baby parakeets . If you are refering to the 1st picture on the 2nd post , then there's really 2 babies there with their mom , another baby 3rd to the last picture . not to good in taking photos .

By babies Libby means too young to breed. I admit I also think some of your pairs look too young. What age are you breeding your birds at ?

 

To breed that many pairs, you must have a market for the sale of the babies ?

By the pictures many of those birds who have been put down for breeding would only JUST be 3 months old...

Birds should not be bred until 12 months of age?

As already asked why do you produce on such a large level? where do your babies go?

:(:(:(

 

I think I'm the only one here in the whole province willing to wait for 6 months (that's 6 months stay in the flight / 8 months after being hatched) to breed those birds , most breeders I know will breed them after 4 months of stay on the flight (6 months / 6 months and half after hatching)

 

Yeah , have market for the babies.

3 months Olddd??????

 

I think I will have to use a cannon d6_ _ camera for you to see the parakeets clearly .

Here in the philippines , if you breed those parakeets after 12 months (that's 12 months stay on the parakeet flight) they won't lay a single egg for a lifetime.

 

buyers come here every now and then .

they came from BIORESEARCH , Manila aquatic supply , local petstores etc

Marlon, you obviously breed on a commercial basis .....quantity breeding. I seriously doubt that some of those birds are 6 months. To me some of them are 3-4 months. With 450 birds you would lose track of each one and its exact age surely.

If that's what you believe..

 

actually 450 is my last count. that was 3 months ago.

anyways thanks a lot for the comments.

There's no seeing wrong. Those birds are definatly only just over 3 months, if that.

 

In your second post photo's : 2, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16 show all VERY young birds. There's no special camera needed to see that, they're young. Some even still have full barring on their head, meaning they're UNDER 3 months.

 

By a bird being over 12 months of age will NOT stop it from laying for the rest of it's life, that's incorrect. So i don't know who told you that. Mostly everyone on this forum breeds after the age of 12 months for for this rule to be true none of us would of had babies? being in a different country does not change how a bird breeds.

kaz seems to be on right track with saying you would lose track of age then if you are not sure of how many you have as well how would you keep track of ages if amount not right

photos were good enough for me to see you had lovebirds

Oh my... how different the breeding of budgies is over there in comparison to here in Australia. :(

Those bird's certainly are young.... i don't know who told you about bird's not breeding over 12 month's... cause all my budgie's are the youngest being 2 years old and the oldest being 5 year's old... and each pair has had a nest already AND during winter without any problem's .. When breeding young ones their's always a greater chance of bad parenting, and worst of all, the hen's get egg bound very easily when they are young....

 

Have you had any result's thus far? i would say you have way too many budgie's to keep up with... but that's my opinion.

Do you supply calcium supplement's to all the hen's for better egg growth and to keep the hen stabilised in calcium after laying... cause it's crucial that the hen's of supplement's and such to keep them in top health while breeding... otherwise you going to have hen's die on you from exhaustion from laying egg's and draining all the calcium and such from their body's/

Those philly birds live in isolation compared to bird places I have seen in the western suburbs here... before anyone gets too excited.

as I've said breeders will start breeding parakeets at the age of 3 to 4 months .

 

with show budgerigars , they'll wait for 6 months before breeding them , we count the months the birds stayed on the flight ...not from the day of being hatched .

thats the difference between breeding for profit and breeding for enjoyment and challenge

we are lucky in this country

we have things alot easyer

i am not condoning the breeding of budgies at such young ages

and they are way to young

nor do i condole the breeding of birds in such a manner

the birds clearly have no were to fly perch to perch

and in my veiw this is very cruel

but thats me

i want to thank you for posting these pics as it shows us what the mass production of birds and how it is set up really is like

i always wondered what a bird factory looked like

and now i know

birds lay better after a year old they lay more eggs to a clutch and they also feed the young better

if you just tryed this with even just a few birds you would see im right

you would benefit more in profit as you would produces more chicks bigger and healthier due to the mum and dad feeding better

and your birds would benefit in health

i understand you need to breed them as for demand

but you would have more birds if you did wait the extra time

i did see some boxes closed off and they were pretty clean so you must look after them why not go one more step

and let the birds mature a bit longer as the benefits are and will over ride the bit of cash flow you may lose in between

you could try it with some birds and when you see the good results you could slowly change your whole breeding colony

to being the desired age

as i said benefiting you and your birds

again thanks for sharing you have some lovely birds

i would also add another perch for them to fly across to keep their wings exicized

toughs perches are good idea by way easy to take out and clean :(

 

well hope you at least think about letting just a few birds maturer to 1 year at least 10 months if you can do that then at least they will be

11 months when they lay after pairing and 12 when raissing the hatched chicks ^_^
