My camera has gone AWOL worst bit is, it will probably show up when we move our stuff, and then I'll have no internet

Also, there is no catagory for my budgies, they are, for the most part, neither exhibition or wild type, they are all mixes

They would be classed as pet/american then i think, Azurei. Thats where i placed Freki and Rhea since i have no idea what they are exactly.

So pets

Ohhhhh let's see then can only try after all Most of my photos have budgie bombs or whatever you call them had a lush one of Marli but can't use it as all the others are peering into the camera from behind her

I don't know how you get them full size in a post but here they are. Skylar pet type, Marli pet type, and Nemo pet type With a little bit of exhibition in there too Especially Marli!
