I’m sure you’ve spent a lot of time and effort into designing and building of your indoor and outdoor aviary and individual breeding cages.

Please take the time to address the following questions.

1. What are you planning to do with any budgie chicks that come from the clutches of the birds you breed?
2. How much research have you done with regard to proper breeding methods? (i.e. ensuring the birds being bred are the right age, are not related, are in good health, have the proper temperament, etc.
3. Do you have an Avian Vet lined up nearby in case there are issues that arise?
4. What type paint or stain did you use? I’m sure you are aware that budgies are going to chew on the wood
5. What type wire did you use? Is it stainless steel? If not, galavanized wire that hasnot been properly prepped can easily cause heavy metal poisoning.
6. Are you certain the spacing between the chicken wire on the aviaries is no more than inch? If not you are putting your birds at risk.
7. The indoor area is much too dark. Are you installing lighting?
8. The breeding cages seem to be very dark the way they are set up as well.
9. How are you going to be able to clean the nest boxes?
10. The edges of the wires are sharp is there a way to ensure the budgies are not injured?

not sure why you sending the info all the steps you put are all done, the paint isnt poisoning to them, with the clutches i do keep some of them or give them to a family members yes i do sell them but not at a profit i do it to keep my aviary running, yes i live by an avian vet, i clean the nest boxes when the eggs hatched and when the birds are 4 days old i clean it and every 2 days afterwards the indoor aviary is little bit dark yes but i am installing lighting, the breeding cages isnt dark its just my phone isnt the best quality the birds cant hurt them self on the wire messing because its not possible but i am building more breeding cages which it be ideal for the birds, i breed the birds from 1 year old and not any younger, the gap between the wire messing is no more than 1/2 inch and it is stainless steel i do not inbred by budgies as i know where they all come from and i also brought my own ID rings to put on the chicks, i gave my budgies fresh veg every day clean water every day they have eggs at least once a week when i see an unhealthy bird i move them away from my other birds and give them some vitamins they get iodine block, cuttlefish and millet once a week,

i had budgies all my life and i research them highly before i started my aviary,

when the mother laid the eggs i will not disturb them so i cant clean the nest box out then as last time i done that the mother damaged the eggs,

i know what im doing i really care about these birds in the next few weeks the indoor aviary will have a makeover it will be insulated with everything will be painted white,

what was your concerns

David, thank you so much for explaining. As you see, this forum isn’t your regular social forum, and we’re sorry that it may have taken you by surprise.

Our reason for being so concerned and the rules are strict, is because this is primarily an educational forum for Best Practices for the health and wellbeing of budgies, and we regularly have new members who have much less experience than you have, and have done little to no research before starting to breed. Also, there are some things that aren’t evident by viewing pics or videos, so it’s really appreciated that you took your time to explain.

We just want to make absolutely sure we’re keeping up our end by not posting threads that inexperienced, impressionable new budgie owners (and there are a whole lot) might misconstrue or get wrong ideas about, and we want to make sure all budgies have the best care they possibly can.

Again, thank you for understanding our reasons David . Looking forward to seeing more, as your chicks grow! Enjoy the forum..

Btw, it’s obvious you’ve spent a lot of time and energy designing and building your aviary. It’s a nice feeling when we see our work completed!

RavensGryf did a great job of explaining why the questions were asked and we thank you for taking the time to answer them for us.

Best wishes with your little beauties!
