When starting out on this journey , I was expecting  a more enthusiatic help , in purchasing our foundation stock . This has been , a non event. Sure , One would expect that ,  We should get out there and source our initial purchases .We know nobody , for one , First of all We want to be sure the hobby will be rewarding in all aspects and the commoradery is enthusiastic , as In my experience I have been in many bird clubs .With our /My enthusiastic approach to Our Hobby I have taken on , the self appointed position of the Greeter to New Members with a resposibility of making NM's feel welcome/appreciated from day 1  , probally ,over doing it in some cases , like donating good  birds , to get started.,as in the sport of racing pigeons new comers do not stay very long , if they cannot get their pigeons home , this is the exciimment. To ensure this NM's need help to the point of making a newsence of one's self , to ensure their birds are fit and well to complete their task tio mke it home .People I have helped with my  pigeons or sbsequence purchases have gone onto be placed in $10,000 Gympey One Loft Races  ,This is my reward  ,so they have had the proper grounding,in which is a very tough hobby , if you do not get some help in the first place. Perfiormance is the order of the day without question ,Looks tell you nothing at the end of the seaso.as , you may have a Black Cavier in your loft and it does happen I gifted a new flyer a Nestling which in his first year won him a 700 mile race and the new flyer ran 2nd in his club and 2.on points in a Combine of a number of clubs , in his first yearNM's ,you have to hold their hands ,until they start beating you .Then you know you have told them too much.Just joking. Such is the help I recieved also , so it was up to Me to help Other which is a great privledge.Think about it. A site must be properly maintained , if the site is to grab a new Member .I kid you  not.I  make no appology for my frankness. At 83 years old I feel I have contrbuted  . I feel I have brought enthusiasm into my Clubs as they  have done for Me/Us ,To say otherwise is not helpful , lrethargy  only gives a dull respose to Newcomers .No offence is intended , however I like to step off on the right foot.I hope my comment do not offend as it is not my intention. Des . I welcome  critism if it is warrented .I hve big shoulders  this has been my teaching from My first day out of colledge and it has stood me in great stead. Des/Myra.

Hi Col,

I bred budgies for 10 years but have not kept them for around 15 years now.  I always purchased mine from show breeders in NSW (where I lived at the time) because I liked the quality of them rather than the usual pet shop/backyard quality.  Although i never went to or entered shows.  Mainly wanting to know if you have any for sale at present and possibly a visit for some advice before/if I take up the hobby (in a small way) again.

Could you please respond via e-mail only.

Thanks,

Scott

Thank you Col for opening my eyes to just how wonderful it is to have and breed budgies which is what Im hoping to do. I have had 3 hens and 3 cocks given to me from a breeder that also shows them. I have also gone and brought 2 more hens that I really liked. I know one of the hens is Albino but other than that I am not sure of the others variety types I would love to be able to send some pictures of them to you via email if you would be happy to try to identify them for me if that would be ok with you. Look forward to hearing from you, Angie

An informative and easy site to map.

Im currently just getting back into keeping, caring and breeding this wonderful specie.

I live in the Ipswich area and hope to register for the Ipswich Budgie Society in the near future.

At present I have 4 breeding cages, a simple set up yet just building things back up.

I currently have 2 pairs together in one good size breeding cage and now it is just a matter of letting things take its course. Im still not sure of what type of budgie I have, they are of good size and colour. I would love someone to tell me exactly what I have so I can plan what is expected.

Any thing that you could assist with I would be very greatful.
