FeatherI had an interesting afternoon pairing birds for a good budgie mate. I am always amazed with the birds I see in other people’s aviaries. Most breeders have a very good bird or two but never go forward because of the way they pair their birds. I had a lot of very nice birds to select from, but when comes to pairing it is hard to find suitable mates for them. I am not one for putting a pair in a cage just because the cage is empty. Anyway it was good to end up with some very nice pairs and some suitable spare partners that could be used if either bird of a pair fails to breed. Also a Few birds were selected as suitable second partners for special features.
My particular focus is on feather quality, and building feather quality into your birds.
