No News

August 30, 2014
Well, I'm still waiting on these two breeding pairs. There has been little to no breeding behaviors in either pair. Sadly you can bring a horse to water but you just can't make him drink. I have given the pairs the perfect breeding conditions but as many breeders know you can't always get your birds to breed. I'm sorry for the long wait but keep your fingers crossed.

And we wait

June 14, 2014
Oran has been singing and bobbing at Lena and she is finely letting him preen her. This is a great sign. She has accepted him as a mate. The pair still needs to spend time bonding but I think they will make a great pair. They are both still about a year old and neither of them has mated before. An estimate of how long it will take for them to lay their first clutch of chicks is about six months to a year. It can take a few clutches of eggs before a new pair fertilizes their eggs.

Changing it up

May 19, 2014
Due to the slow nature of the past two breeding seasons I have decided to change my breeding pairs around. I now have two breeding pairs. The first being Henna and Eddy the second being Lena and Pete. I'm hoping I can get these birds to bond and breed soon. To all of you that have been waiting sorry for the wait. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

A new season a new start. The males are singing their love songs but the females aren't ready to lay just yet. I have three pairs I'm hoping will lay their eggs with in a few months

Long waiting list

February 2, 2014
*** At the moment I am not taking any more budgie applications. ***

This breeding season has been very slow as seen in past posts. I now have only three breeding pairs. One of the pairs isn't old enough to breed and the other two haven't shown signs of breeding. I am sorry for any inconvenience. If you would like to be taken off the waiting list please feel free to contact me. If not thank you for your patience.

A slow start to this breeding season

November 14, 2013
I checked Eddy and Auras eggs this morning and found none of them where fertile. It looks like we are off to a slow start. I have seem some breeding behaviors with Pete and Henna. They have been in and out of the nest for a few days now. I'm hoping a few of the other pairs will have better luck than Eddy and Aura.

Two new additions to the flock

November 4, 2013
I have recently added two new additions to my flock. Oran is an American lutino male. Lena is an American albino female. I purchased them hoping they won't be split for any mutations. I'm hoping they are just normal inos. My plan is to diversify my lacewing gene pool. In a year or so I will pair them off with either lacewings or cinnamons.

November 4, 2013
