Just Saying Hello

Recommended Posts

Well hello

I am brill.. you can call me Mark if you like I am new to this site and to be honest I don't usually go for clubs or fan sites but I kept on getting referrals to my web site from this site so I thought I had better check it out. :P

 

I live in Mareeba in Far North Queensland Australia and I have been around birds all of my life the first bird I got was when I was 2 years of age she is a galar and believe it or not she's still alive. I have been breeding birds for about 12-15 years and Hand raising them for just over 10 years.

 

I have about 20ish Budgies and I have on average 6-7 pairs which I use for my hand raised birds, I love the hand raising of the Budgies as they are easy to do and are one of the most loyal and loving birds I breed. And they get so excited come feeding time. :) I am interested to find out how other people who share the same passion for Budgies and birds in general get on with there Budgies. Although I have been doing it for a while now I still have a lot to learn and I am always open to other people's advice.

 

Just a little about my birds. I don't have show birds I just have what some people would call the common old budgie but they sell well as Hand raised birds. There's no way somebody is going to pay 100's of dollars for a pet Budgie. Although after all the time and effort put into raising a chick to adulthood I think there worth 100's of dollars. I let my birds go down twice at the most and then it's out to green pastures for a while so they can fatten up. I never swap birds around they are kept as a bonded pair if they prove to be good breeders. and one last thing they are very spoilt my wife tells me more so then her :)

Hi again Mark. Are you going to be at the "big bird sale" at the Cns show grounds weekend after next? Not sure how that all works but went along with my son a few years ago and were totally overwhelmed. Got the feeling you had to know what you were doing and who to talk to to get anything out of it. (We both remember the bigger parrot that escaped and spent the time flying around the ceiling with some frazzled officials running around with a net!!!):P :P

 

It would be great to talk to someone and know that the person was all they say and not just have to accept their word only. Was going to PM you but think you have to have a certain number of posts before that is okay (for other forums anyway)

 

Cheers, Hezz

Ohhh nice I didn't even know there was a sale on in Cairns to be honest with you. I would LOVE to go I just hope it's on the Sunday as I have the Mareeba Markets on the Saturday of that weekend, Although I could probably sneak down in the afternoon. I would really like to get some new breeders. I'm happy for you to send me a message. :)

I'm pretty sure it is Sunday. There is usually an ad in the pet section of Sat's Cairns Post classifieds. One ran last week so would be fairly sure it will run again this weekend.

 

Do you sell your budgies at Mareeba markets? Have seen ads for budgies at rusty's on a Sunday but thought that was a little too hit and miss - anyone could sell you anything - well me anyway!!:huh:
