Hello all, I will be closing down my website very shortly, due to no longer having the time to continue updating this site, with the club work & family commitements. I will still be doing the ABS site www.absbudgieclub.org.au & will try to keep this information up to date. I also have a Facebook page that I try to keep up with also. thank you Camelle https://www.facebook.com/camelle.lamb
This site is devoted to my hobby: breeding & showing beautiful budgies. The Budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus)
I hope you will find the information on this great hobby of help to you even if you are only looking for a pet as they do make wonderful pets for of any age. I will be listing the varieties I breed & show together with articles on the care, keeping and breeding & even up to showing stage & clubs you could join in your area.
