Yes. I was only 15 then though. I am now almost 18 :) And I
NEVER knew as much as I did then. Heck I was for breeding a year
ago, except on cockatoos and the larger parrotS AND petstored
birds. But yes Its true I did breed. But I was never a breeder
and NEVER sold any of the chicks. I let my pair breed a couple
times and I got 6 babies out of them. I rehomed all of my
budgies to someone who had a huge 2 car size avairy full of
plants and it was a good place for them, and I know they are
happy. Out of the 8 budgies I used to have, I only have 2. Bbay,
and Kiki :) Kiki was the only one I bought 5 years ago and is
not related to any of the other budgies.
