I started breeding at junior level some years ago but due to work commitments I had to pack it in. I restarted in the hobby again in 2016. The bloodlines I work with are Mark & Tony Rodgers. I feed my birds a good variety of veg which consists of carrots broccoli beetroot and celery, My seed mix is 50/50 and tonic. I'm really looking forward to the years ahead on the show bench.
N1449 Joe Nevin
For 42 years now I have been breeding birds, my first time out I bought 3 pairs and never bred a chick, until I knew a man who was getting out of the hobby so I bought his avairy.
To get were I am today takes a lot of hard work and never give up because if you persist it does have it's rewards.
Keeping your birds fit and healthy is very important so I treat my birds once a week with Ducolvit available from most pet stores, it give them stamina and keeps the nasties away.
BS1 Terry Knott
For the last 40 years I have been in the hobby. I believe 75% luck and 25% knowledge come into play, it just takes 1 bird.
Opalines are a must in my stud as they bring in good markings to my birds. Persistence and patients is key never give up.
When breeding I always put the cock down a week before the hen that way he will be dominant and brings results quicker.
ECR Charlie Roche
I have been breeding budgies since 2011 with 8 pairs I got from Tommy Burke. I work off two bloodlines which are Alan Marchant and Gareth Hughes.
I use a mixture of feed as in regular budgie seed foreign finch wild bird oats and groats. Soft food mix of egg food and soaked millet,
My best achievement to date is beating Joe Nevin at our March show 2107.
I have been in the hobby since 2010 and currently at Intermediate level. The key to a good bird is size and a good way to judge this is in the show cage, spots are just as important as is blow coming from the back skull. Getting all three right is very rewarding. I'm a regular on the show bench with my latest award at the Swords CBS winning Best Breeder. Diet is very important too with a mix of cockatiel budgie seed, seeweed and mixed millet to add just a few.
Burke & Keely
I have breeding Budgies for the last 33 years with rearing over 100 birds a year. Good bloodlines are key to a successful stud, stick to a couple of breeders that work for you and the rest will follow. A mixture of vegetables and soft food like carrots broccoli fennel beetroot and eggfood, and treating the birds for infection etc. will keep your birds good and healthy. My latest achievement on the show bench was Best opp sex in our open show,
MTR1 Mark Rodgers
I have been breeding budgies for over 20 years now following on from my Father who I am in partnership with. The characteristics I look for in a bird is back skull face size and markings.
I only work off 3 bloodlines (Spruce,Marchin,Bowker) as I'm very happy with these lines, as a tip I would suggest to anyone taking up the hobby to do likewise, then you know what your working with.
I keep my birds on a stable diet consisting of seed a good variety of soft food, also treating them from infection and virus.
