WHY ARE SOME BREEDERS SO LUCKY

Many breeders hope that by giving their breeding pairs a

nest box, food & a mate. They have all bases covered when

it comes to breeding. Another important factor to take into

consideration in the equation, is that elusive element which

we all need & hope for, known the world over under a variety

of names. In English we call it. Good Luck.

So how do we ensure we get our share of this magical

phenomenon. As it appertain's to the bird breeding community?

For many years in the western world the breeding of some

foreign birds was considered to be impossible until 1945

when returning prisoners of war arrived back home.

During their incarceration a select few had been given the

jobs of looking after the guards captive pet birds & animals.

In doing so they had learned a secret most of them would

take to the grave. The so called secret formula for the

breeding of many difficult birds.

The answer to this most mysterious of mysterious mysteries.

Was kept a closely guarded secret for many years.

It appeared to get out when visiting breeders keen to discover

the secret, saw what they thought was the haphazard

placement of nest boxes in the birdrooms of some very

successful breeders. Haphazard will work really well in colony

breeding if you supply lots of extra nest boxes.

Even in this day & age almost all nesting arrangements in

breeding cages are all set up like a car manufacturers

assembly line.

Any birds that don't perform well or not at all, are sold off.

Bird marketing suppliers. jumped on the bandwagon. selling

cure all potions to gullable breeders, with promises of getting

birds to breed like rabbits. Which they won't if conditions

are not to their liking, no matter what magic medicine you give

them.

There are many stories of such bad breeder birds being very

prolific with other breeders with a practical & to all intents

& purposes an identical set-up.

When asked their secret, instead of admitting they don't

know, they wink knowingly & smile.

Even today most of the serious breeders stick to this

regimental layout & only keep birds willing to breed under

these conditions.

Being one of the few privy to the secret, I'm going to reveal

some simple ideas to help you attract your share of good luck.

How to attract good luck to your aviary

Build a pond or waterfall feature to the left of the door &

place an ornamental tortoise close by. Water is notorious

for attracting good luck.

Aviary doors facing the directions below each have a lucky

charm animal.

North = RAT. NE =TIGER. E = RABBIT. SE = DRAGON.

S = HORSE. SW = Monkey. W= Rooster, NW = Dog. Effigies

or pictures of these creatures should adorn your shed walls.

COMPATIBILITY AIDS FERTILITY

The good luck formula also tells us that all birds have a lucky

number, this gives you the general direction, of the nest bob

hole that a particular bird may prefer. To find this number.

Add together the last two numbers of the birds birth year,

ie, 2012. 1+2 = lucky No is 3.

Lucky numbers, 1, 5, 9 prefer to face North.

Lucky numbers, 2, 6, 10 ................ face South.

Lucky numbers, 3, 7, 11 ................ face East.

Lucky numbers, 4, 8, 12 ................ face West.

By pairing compatible birds, good luck is greatly increased.

Peace & Harmony

In any collection of birds, aggression may break out at any

time as with any living creatures kept in a confined space.

Sometimes for no seemingly good reason.

Eye contact is one factor that seems to set off the aggressor.

Parallel perches are a well known factor in making it difficult

for birds to avoid eye contact. It is suggested that perches

in cages should be set slightly further apart at the front than

the back. In an aviary situation place the perches across the

corners. This may not be a cure-all but it will help.

I know it sounds a little crazy but why take Pot Luck instead

of Good Luck? You may be more familiar with this good luck

formula under its oriental name Feng shui, its been around

since 4000BC. Now if this & all the other good info you get

off this site doesn't improve your birdkeeping skills.

Nothing will......Yours B.J.

Some people could take offense to the above comments... Feng shui is actually very popular in the US and Australia, and comments like those above could be very offensive,t he same if someone criticized religion/ god in front of a christian for example.

I myself am a Christian, but i won't be doing bible study with my birds, taking them to church with them or teaching them hymns. They won't be doing communion, having wedding cermonies or getting baptised.

 

The same way I wouldn't expect Jewish budgies to wear a Yamaka or get circumcised.

 

Ludicrous idea is a ludicrous idea

Probably because as a Christian, which I myself am, we don't have any form of spiritual living as such as the way of showing it physically (if that makes sense). Alot of Feng Shui is about the energy in the house, inviting positive energy in, and negative energy out. Things like no doorways in alignment, no walls in front of doors. What may seem like a ludicrous idea to you, could be someone else's way of life, in the same way Christianity may seem like a ludicrous idea to some. I know Sage is used alot to 'burn' the negative energy, and invite the positive into the house. It's not a religion as such, is was developed by the Chinese as a form of good luck. I am not sure if you now much about Chinese arts or medicine's, but acupuncture uses the same concept, as do the majority of martial arts.

 

Some religious people believe it is the work of sorcery, other's relate it to meditation (Hinduism?) or just being 'spiritual'.
