Id be joining a club Andrew. They'll have people who can help you pair them up...it's hard to say what to pair with what when we haven't seen your birds...

 

Giving you a general overview, blue birds paired with green birds will give you all green, unless that green bird is split blue.

 

Are you looking to show or just breed? If your looking to show, you'll want to pair up birds that compliment each other and not birds that have the same faults... You also want to look at having your varieties paired together. Ie Spangles to Spangles... You can mix Normals or Opalines in as well but you don't want to be mixing up the mutations to much...

 

If your not planning to show then just get a hen and a cock and put them in the cabinet together...

 

Did you get any information on any of the birds from their breeders?

Jeepers I am with Dean, 100 birds at once that's a lot. If you are interested in joining a club, I would say your closest is the Riverina, they are loccated in Barooga. Send me a message if you are and I will send you some phone numbers for you to contact them.

Breeding aide is great for the birds when breeding gives them a boost plus helps the hen from getting egg bound. I use it every year.

As for colours If you planning on showing, I wouldn't worry to much about colour, I would work on breeding the bird, so putting your best birds together. If you are only pet breeding just do anything.

In the water I use calcivet a couple times a week. Vitamins etc. I give my birds true grit and PMV with added probotic or what ever it is ( pigeon vitamins and minerals, it is a pink powder very cheap, you buy it at Hunters in Shepparton,)

Where did you buy your birds from if you don't mind me asking.

If this is a serious Thread/post.

I would say buying over one hundred birds straight up ??

Asking what you need to feed them ??

What do you put in water ??

Do you have an avairy??, or just cabinets ??

Have you kept birds before ?? , going by the questions you have asked I dont know.

I have been talking to Andrew and he bought so many birds because, It was kinda buy this many for this price. I guess he will go through them one day and work out what is good and what is not.

He is already feeding them probably but just wanted to know how show breeders feed them, for example what extras do we give them. He has a few aviaries with other parrots, so he knows how to look after his birds.

I just thought I might put my 2 cents in.
