COL'S BUDGERIGARS

ARTICLES:-

     I'LL RECOMMEND THAT YOU BUY A GOOD QUALITY BOOK ON BUDGERIGARS & A BUDGERIGARS STANDARD { PURCHASED FROM A RECOGNIZED BUDGIE CLUB }  & USE THESE AS YOUR BIBLE FOR BREEDING; SHOWING; & GENERAL WELL BEING.

     THERE ARE GOOD WEB SITES ADVAILABLE WITH GOOD INFORMATION ON COLOUR; HEALTH & CARE. 
     I JOINED A CLUB TO LEARN & GET EXPERIENCE FROM LECTURERS {GUEST SPEACKERS} & OTHER BREEDERS THESE ARE INVALUABLE & I'VE GRAINED ALOT OR INFORMATION & KNOWLEDGE THIS WAY EVEN THIS TIME YOU NEVER STOP LEARNING FROM THESE MEETINGS. 
     I RECOMMEND & USE NIGHT LIGHTS THIS ESSENTIAL IF YOU ARE FEEDING AT NIGHT & THEY GIVE THE BIRDS A CHANGE OT FIND THEIR WAY BACK TO THE BREEDING BOXES OR PERCHES IN FLIGHTS IF THEY ARE FRIGHTENED BY SOMTHING. I USE SOLAR PANALS LIGHTS THAT ARE CONNECTED TO THE ROOF OF MY AVAIRY.
