My Budgies And More!

Recommended Posts

Well, after months and months of shopping for a digital camera, I now have one!

That means I can photograph my birds and cages and so on!

 

ALL IMAGES HAVE BEEN COMPRESED FOR THE WEB, so they wount look as near as good as my camera takes them at.

 

I will be adding here to the list of photo in this post, so as I take more, i will add in.

Also look out for other posts I make with images in them.

 

Well, here goes!

 

Ill start with my fav pets.

 

1. This is Beedy! (boy) (picture below) Died 18/8/04 -

My first budgie I ever had as a pet and also my first budgie out of the nest when I first started breeding.

One of the friendliest and most tame birds I have ever seen.

It took MANY MANY hours to tame him and its worth it. He free flys and is so much fun! :bluebudgie:

He speaks over 30 words, and eats breakfast and dinner with me.

He also won 'pet of the night' at my budgie club

I was SO amazed when I saw a grey coloured bird!

Not anymore!

LOL

2. This is Jessy! (girl) (picture below)

I decided to breed a friend for Beedy when I was not arround, and so I did.

She is a girl, duh! lol and is pied. Again, breed by me, but at this point, more experiance I have in breeding.

She is not as near as tame as my other featherd friend, Beedy, but is nice enough to me!

3. My aviary (picture below)

I have 2 main aviaries.

This is one, its not big, but I like it!

About 200 birds in this one.

probably have to be a small budgie cos the bigger show budgies die so young.

It's sad cos they're prettier they should live longer :)

i think it's co the more u breed the budgies to look like they do in the standard the further away they are genetically from the wild budgie so they have problems with there health and stuff.
