Rehousing Birds

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

We have had a handful of budgies now for a year. 3 of the budgies came with the aviary and are not wanted for breeding. They would be between 2-5 years old.

We tried breeding recently and one of these female birds took over the nest of a sitting one and let all the eggs go cold.

As we only have one avairy and are just starting out in breeding we will do it communally (we are not setup to breed in breeding cages yet).

 

What is the best way to get rid of these birds.

Do you just find a pet shop that will take them but I wouldn't want anyone to buy these birds thinking they are young, or is there someone out there with plenty of space that rehouses older birds so they can enjoy the avairy life.

Any help would be grateful.

Cheers

kurt

Hello Pet shops will take & pay for any birds. Provided they are in the business of selling livestock.

 

On the subject of breeding I suggest you read the posts on this forum.

 

Colony breeding. You need equal sexes. Several extra nest boxes so hens have choice.

 

Birds must be in breeding condition. Yours B.J.

Thanks looks like its the Pet Shop they will go to.

Had alot of success with colony breeding in the past but every now and then I would always get a nasty female to upset things

I'd try the pet shop,( if it's a good one) any pet shop with any experience will know they aren't babies. Someone with an aviary may get a season of breeding from them if they are in good health and reasonable birds. :)
