Congratulations Dio

Monday, June 20th, 2011

I recently chat­ted with a client who is new to the Eng­lish Budgie breed­ing world. After falling in love with rais­ing and tam­ing her pet bud­gies, Vic­to­riac decided to try her hand at breed­ing and show­ing. With lots of love and patience and some dif­fi­cul­ties, she was able to hatch a clutch of bud­gies and did an amaz­ing job to doc­u­ment the progress through film and video. Of course the budgie par­ents were not the most coop­er­a­tive as they were new to the budgie breed­ing world too. So with my help and a fel­low breeder, Vic­to­riac quickly learned how to hand­feed the hatch­lings and how to act as a sur­ro­gate mama. She per­se­vered around the clock and raised a won­der­ful clutch–three of which placed in the Mary­land Budgeri­gar Soci­ety show! Dio placed 9th Best Novice in Divi­sion. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Vic­to­riac and Dio! (all pic­tures are copy­righted, per­mis­sion for use was granted to me by Victoriac)
