BREEDING BUDGIES GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS
BREEDING BUDGIES GENERAL - SUITABILITY
Although budgie breeding is easy if the environment is right, not everyone is
suitable. You must be able-bodied and physically fit.
A practical nature would be an advantage.
DON'T TAKE UP THE HOBBY if you're ham-fisted or clumsy - you'll be catching
and handling delicate creatures regularly.
DON'T TAKE UP THE HOBBY IF YOU SUFFER FROM A MENTAL ILLNESS.
You need to be mentally stable, well balanced and strong. You'll be coping
with emotionally demanding situations
such as bullying, sickness and death regularly.
DON'T TAKE UP THE HOBBY IF YOU'RE LONELY (WHICH IS NOT THE SAME AS
BEING ALONE) - A FLOCK OF BIRDS DON'T
MAKE GOOD PETS - THEY BOND TO EACH OTHER, NOT HUMANS.
YOUR PERSONAL SITUATION:
This hobby is ideally suited to a person living alone with plenty of
spare time who is looking for other avenues to his or her life.
However, other situations will work equally well with certain provisos.
PERSON WITH PARTNER: ONE WORKING - that's fine.
PERSON WITH PARTNER: BOTH WORKING - NO! NO! NO!
Breeding and managing a flock of WILD! budgies is a FULL TIME JOB.
Yes - that's what the offspring of your original stock will be.
TOTALLY WILD with little experience of humans or how
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR INDOOR BREEDING
BUDGIES / PARAKEETS AND CHILDREN:
THIS is more difficult! Some badly brought up children will chase a feeding
pigeon on a street. This may just be a natural test of his or her place in the
scheme of things or it could indicate a tendency to bullying.
However, To understand another species from an early age can be very
beneficial, especially for an only child. Only YOU can make the decision.
Looking after a flock of birds is VERY demanding and will take up a lot of your
BUDGIES / PARAKEETS and a domestic pet:
NO - There will be flightless birds, maybe handicapped birds walking and
playing on the floor. No matter how tame and placid your pet may seem,
one day it's natural instincts will take over and there will be a tragedy.
