. We have had a cracker of a 2018 breeding season. I have bred more birds in some previous seasons, however with a reduced number of pairings and breeding cages, I think the results are acceptable. The youngsters produced were a definite step up, with many of the features we have been working on for years, showing up in many of the babies. The birds across the board have thick necks, good deep wide faces and of course basically no flecking which the stud is renowned for. Keep em clean has been the background focus for over 30 years.
Unfortunately this season just isn’t enough birds spare to be able to supply all those who are after a bird or two. All the excess stocks to my requirements have been sold; please take this as my apology for not having enough birds to meet the demand. If you shoot me an email to let me know you are still keen for birds, you never know after the next season gets underway I may have some birds that I no longer require. I do keep a lot of spare birds. Use the contact page on this web site
On a sad note the hobby lost one of its well-known assets of many years, Mr. Gerald Binks. I had a fair bit to do with Gerald through the importation of budgies into Australia. He was a no nonsense kind of guy and everything had to be just so. I would not have liked to try the monumental task of bringing over 500 birds into Australia without Gerald’s help. I don’t think many of the lucky recipients of the birds had any idea of how much work and time was involved in bringing in these birds. His aviary was always a pleasure to visit, lot of excellent birds and he was always willing to pass on his extensive knowledge. Thanks Gerald RIP.
