My New Budgies

Recommended Posts

Hi all i just got 4 new show budgies 2 cocks a grey and a olive green and 2 hens a cinnamon light grey and i think a normal green. i will post photos later today. i have them in quarantine. is there anything i should do special like worming on so on ? :) the birds come from a local SA breeder Sue Adams.

Re worming....that would be a question you should have asked SUE.........i.e. when did she treat them last, what with and for what ? Give her a call.

 

Re the OLIVE....is it really an olive or is it grey green. Many people get the two confused.

You got all the others right. Dont worry about the olive vs grey green thing. Most everyone gets that wrong at first, till they learn what to look out for :)

Nice birds! Sue is a very kind lady, I hope she treated you well ;) The birds are very good. If I was you, I would pair the Grey Cinnamon Hen to the Grey-Green Cock, and the Green Hen to the Grey Cock.

that cinnamon hen is a stunner great buy all your hens should look like her :)

shes got good show quality's

get her a really nice big broard boy with lots of head qualitys to really bring her out

make sure if nothing he is big as in long and has big as you can get spots and a long mask

direction across his cere and forward push

 

 

the grey cock bird is nice

but dont be tempted to put him with her though (the cin grey hen)

although im positive you will get some ripper bubbys from him put him to a hen with loose feather and sit back and see your messy hen produce some rip snorters with him :) hes a very handy bird to have nice dense feather good spots be sure his hen has length in her mask and forward push to get best out of him

 

i myself would put your grey green cock bird to the light green hen

she is as long as him but with the top he is missing both have decent masks with nice rounded spots his is tad longer which is good her mask is bit more fuller also good

she has good feather behind head and direction on above the cere although she has not much push but all the right characteristics to go with him well

hes got feather above head although he does pull back he could just be doing this in picture she is tad short or cut off i say under perch hes got the length below she misses

 

you could put grey with her as hes got nice broad head in-which the grey green does not posses or does the light green hen so in pairing them could result in thin headed birds even though your got all other areas good

 

me id put wighth of head in after i fixed other areas but thats me

 

 

 

great starting birds

all have good quality necessary to start with

take the two birds in show cages with you to sale if its your clubs

ask a member help you choose a quality partner for each bird

but dont forget what your other birds need to help them as no point buying birds just to suit one partner needs to beable to improve all your hens if a cock and or bring something to all your cocks if a hen

On your question of medication - Sue is pretty fastidious with the health of her birds, they shouldnt need medicating :)
