Sometimes it's good to remember our childhood days, so I decided to take some of my best budgie related pictures from my photo album and download them to my computer.
My mother was kind enough to record these precious moments, as these chicks were the first I got from my first time breeding my birds (under my mother's close watch). At this time I must have been 8 - 9 years old and did all the work in cleaning the cages, feeding all the birds, taming the chicks and making the whole flock happy!
Here I am, very proud to having these chicks and blessed to have grown up with pet birdies all around me.
3 chicks on my lap, 1 on my finger
As you can see, I had 3 lutinos and a normal dark green
A close up pic for you to see they were all wanting to be close to me. Two of them are lovingly looking up at me.
You can see a pattern here, one of the lutinos was always in my hand, that was my precious girl Popinha, she turned out being the best female I ever had and she had beautiful, sweet tempered chicks.
Here I am now at 31 years old and the budgie bug is stronger than ever, I just can't imagine life without these little friends!
