The hobby of keeping and breeding exhibition budgerigars has been around for almost a century maybe longer. The hobby is enjoyed worldwide not just to the birds native Australia. The bird styles may have changed quite a lot over the decades but the breeding principles and bird husbandry remain the same.
We are a bunch of budgie enthusiasts who like to get together and talk all things budgies and we even like to show off what we have bred. We are quite a mixed group of people, young and old, boys and girls. There is so much experience between all the members, we should write a book.
We all had to start somewhere and that is normally at the beginning. Getting started on the right foot could be crucial to your enjoyment of the hobby. So it pays to get it right from the start.
The benefits of being in a club is that we are all passionate about the same thing, we are willing to share knowledge and experiences. Willing to help newcomers to the hobby with the right advice. Nothing worse than getting advice that isn’t right for you.
