I am excited that you are excited. But I cannot offer you anything positive about colony breeding :)

Good luck! How far are your nest boxes apart? I know colony breeding is not the best choice but it is your decision. Keeping my fingers crossed no problems!

hi clancy i dont normally say things like this but

your only asking for troubble collany breeding

if i had

five top quality pairs then i would want to

give them the top quality safty the deserve to breed and raise their chicks in

its not much to get a few cabbinits made up

and not hard to hang a nest box on

it would even be less expencive than what it will be buying new cocks or hens or vets bills what ever 9HOWEVER I DONT THINK VET WOULD BE IN YOUR VOCABLUARY IF YOU WONT PAY FOR CABNITS I DOUBT YOUR GOING TO PAY FOR A VET

 

 

breeding birds is not just about cute babys

as if your breeding collany then you wont really be able to look after orsave any cute babys that mabe hatch and get eatten by other hens while mums gone for feed

or mum may go light AS SHES TO SCARED TO GET OUT BOX TO FEED HERSELF

ALL EGGS MAY BECOME ADLLED FOR SAME REASON IF HEN WONT COME OFF HER EGGS TO REST HERSELF EVERY NOW AND AGAIN FOR 3 TO FIVE MINNITS EGGS MAY DIE

THEIR IS SO MANY BAD REASONS NOT TO COLLANYBREED

 

i wont be wishing you luck sorry

but i will be wishing you come to your sencese and get five breeding cabbnits so you can actually enjoy raising young how its safe for them and their mum and dad and way better for yourself

 

can i just as

what makes you choose collany over cabbinets

their must be a reason you prefer it

Hi Clancy, I'm really excited for you, its great to have another budgie breeder on board, please don't be put off by some of the comments on this board, enjoy this great hobby. Breed as you choose to, but use it as a learning experience, watch the pairs closely get to know them. You'll have your share of success and failure and as you gain experience you may change some of your current ideas. But Good Luck ENJOY! Clearwing

I really do hope you dont have trouble this time like before Clancy, but since you go to school you cannot watch over them all the time. It is a concern, thats all.

 

So, here's an article on COLONY BREEDING http://forums.budgiebreeders.asn.au/faqs/i...lony%20breeding that may help you make it work.

 

 

.....and Clancy -_- ........in the past you have come on the forum posted things and left and we have posted answers and you never return, look at them or answer. So our help or posts to you has seemed wasted....... ( not talking criticism here....but in general all answers or posts ). Please check back in your posted topics and answer others helpful advice to keep the topic moving along and to get the help you need. The more info is provided the more we can help. If you arent sure how to find your topics or posts click on your name and go to your profile page and see your topics there :)

It's brilliant to see you so excited and enthusiastic :)

 

When I was younger my family used to colony breed. I think it's most budgie lover's starting point. To start off with, it went brilliantly, but then more birds were added, more chicks were born and more and more hens started going after the same nesting boxes. It ended up in alot of wounded/maimed and/or killed birds. -_-

 

Not saying this will happen to you, but by looking at the previous posts, it has happened. Maybe this time it wont happen - fingers crossed and best wishes it doesn't.

 

I won't do it again as I don't want to put my birds through that sort of trauma. Plus I get to select which cock I breed to which hen and hopefully some of the colours, varieties and mutations I want will come out. :D Selective breeding of your birds is good if there are certain goals you want to achieve

 

Maybe you don't have the funds and/or support from home to be able to let you have the choice to selective breed. Maybe you don't have the space. Or maybe you just find it an easier way to have your birds. You have your reasons for Colony Breeding. I may not agree with your choice in breeding, but I'm not one to judge - it would be hypocritical of me to do so as I once colony bred.

 

BUT with time and experience, you will learn happiness and heartache, learn different things, grow with your birds and build your own knowledge. And hopefully take some of our info here on board :D We're only trying to help you.

 

Again, good luck and Hi 5 to enthusiasm!

okay im not going to apoligize for notwishing you luck as i dont see you being able to watch birds enough and after reading your threads with losses and stuff

but i guess i should at least let you know i would always help if i could with advice if things do turn sour as i think i have once before

just make sure all boxes are at same height

all you place in two boxes per hen

all boxes are at least one foot apart

that once all birds are paired and have found boxes that all unpaired birds are taken out cocks and hens this goes for and all left over nests are also taken out

if you do this you should have success at collany breeding

i never collny breed when i begain breeding but i did breed a few pairs in same flight once

i didnt have any trouble but i did watch birds everyminit they were near my window and i was home all day everyday

i only did it the once as the hens were flighty and unsure of eachother when ever they left the nest

its not just the hens who kill chicks the cocks also will kill chicks and eggs and sometimes cock fight will kill another cock two claim both hens

so just be very caushes of your set up and make sure theirs plenty of seed fruit and veg dayly and watch your birds closely

 

i didnt mean to come across so harsh just a warrning i gave to a friend was not taken and because of this one of her birds is now parralized and i guess i just figger if people would listen then these things wouldnt happen

gb

They are happy you are excited, but they have had some bad experiences with collony breeding and don't want you to go through the same thing. Good luck! It is your choice and I won't judge you by that choice. I really hope everything goes well for you and your birds.

You are getting positive comments... but also warnings as we've all read the problems you've had in the past and see you choose not to listen. We are not being mean, just hoping you would have leanrt from past blood shed. This is a public forum, and when you post a topic you will get both the negatives and the positives... that's just the way things work.

Blood shed does not always mean death. I colony bred before I knew better, and had blood shed, but no deaths. I was lucky enough to step in before anyone was killed, and their injuries were fixable. I now have a number of hens missing the ends off their toes from nest box battles. I hope for your birds sake nothing goes wrong.
