20 top tips for budgie breeders

Spreads for web 4

by Elizabeth Wright

1: Leave an 8w light on in the birdroom at night to avoid ‘night fright,’ where the birds panic in the darkness, flutter around and possibly injure themselves.

2: Wooden wine racks, bought cheap at second hand shops or car boot fairs, make excellent alternative perching when suspended from the ceiling or fixed to the side of aviary.
