I happened to be on a run to pay off a cage, and what do i see? A light grey winged budgie! It had color of almost violet body and a white head . Reminded me of my beloved hawk! I think it was a boy! Had dark pink cere would of called it hawk junior. I tell myself no more buying right now! Focus on your sweet blizzard female who is a reccessive pied budgie and tame her down some more. I bet if i bred to blizzard i would have dilute babies or greywing babies. So darn tempting!?! What do you all do with this temptation? Right now blizzard thinks of me as her mate, i don't wanna break the bonds with her now.

Gracious, there are definitely lots of temptations at pet stores! You know, if it gets to be too tempting, you could always start ordering more online!

You're absolutely right. You do not need another budgie right now, and even thinking about breeding is a huge complication you definitely don't need.

Blizzard loves you and is quite happy the way things are for now ;) Stay strong! :D

To resist temptation, one must think logically and practically rather than operating on impulse and emotion.

1) Buying from a big-box pet store is not recommended.
Doing so supports the type of breeding practices that this forum would like to see cease to exist.

1) Expense - You need a strong financial base to be able to afford the Avian Vet care that may become necessary for however many budgies you own.

2) Time -- Spending time one-on-one with a budgie makes it much easier for you to develop a bond with that bird.

3) Flock Dynamics -- Anytime there is a change in number of birds in a flock (addition or subtraction) the dynamics of the flock changes.
Getting another budgie does not necessarily mean that it will get along with the one you already have. A person should always be ready, willing and able to house multiple birds separately if necessary. That means ensuring you have enough cages, enough room and that each cage is large enough and has all the essentials to make it a great home.

4. From reading the various posts you've made, I believe you need to have a much stronger knowledge of budgies and the best practices for their care before ever considering beginning the research necessary to decide if you would be able to make the commitment required for proper breeding.

Now you have the tools needed to fight temptation.

Greetings I also agree with faerybee as well.when thinking of buy birds interest to find a good breeder if you can find 1.but also be aware of the tremendous responsibility of caring for them as well.

It sure can be tempting to get more but when you have 1 and want a good established bonding with your bird ,1 is the best way to go.I already came along way myself with my Gracie with just her and me.
The joy they can bring is fantastic.

Our wonderful staff here are very kind hearted and knowledgeable ,and with years of experience we can all trust.
Blessings and I wish you and your budgie(s) many happy years together.and we love budgie photos so much lol.:)
