    Cool From start to till

    Salam to all members.

    First of all thank to admin to start this kind of threads where every one can share his experiences and ideas.

    Now would like to share my experience as i have started the hobby ( keeping birds as pets ) in may / 2006, i have started from love birds ( 2 pairs of lutino, 2 pairs of fisher & 1 pair of blue personnata ) as the attract me more than other local birds and also not much expensive, i keep them 4-5 months one morning while changing their water i noticed some different noises from the nest box of my fisher pair, i checked the pot and got shocked i found 3 chick and 2 eggs.... That is the point where my hobby boosted..... I was happy and cheerful that my birds breaded successfully as one of my uncle tried to breed love birds since 3 years and not get single egg till that time,,,,,, by the grace of allah my birds breeded in just 4-5 months.

    At that time i don`t have much idea what to feed the chicks caring birds, at that time my 1 fisher chick died due to direct sun light exposure to the nest box all day and other were very much affected it hurts me but i haven`t loose my concentration and interest.....

    After have i expand my collection to normal budgies to get the financial support as budgies are easy to breed and their breeding clutch size is also good as compare to love birds, gradually i expand my setup. I have build 2 colonies for budgies in that colonies my 8 pairs of budgies breeded like hulk... In 7 month i got more than 60 pairs of chicks then i build another 2 colonies for their chicks,....

    I meet many breeders in this passage of time and then found birdsplanet.com here i meet many people online and got the really informative data and experiences changed my feeding recipes, ratio of grains, build my master cage many changes like cages and multivitamins awareness.

    Then i change my setup... I sell my most of the budgies pairs and just keep my 20 best pairs in separate cage system, and bought some normal fellow budgies from mr. Akhlaq ahmed, and some under size budgies and foster their eggs to my budgies, i got good results in few months i have sufficient stock of fellow budgies and under size budgies..... I sell few pairs and got good financial support to extend my love birds setup, extend my fisher quantity upto 12 pairs and breed them in colony bought 5 pairs of blue personnata 2 pairs of lutino personnata, 1 mouve personnata and 1 pair of albino personnata, by the grace of allah they all are breeding at by palce now.

    Also i have set up some exhibition budgies pairs and they also breed at my place now 1st time.

    I am very much thankful to most of the experience members here for their kind regular support like ustad ji, ahmed usman, tahir mahmood and specially usaid ahmed ( he is supporting me regularly and also visiting my place when ever i need him, he is very much informative and have experience in exhibition budgies problems ) also saud, akhlaq ahmed, farhan siddiquie, ali hassan and many more.

    In future i would like to expend my collection and put grey pairs and irn .......

    Hope to get good results from my current birds in coming seasons need your prayers and help in future also.

    Thanks and best regards.

    Fahad baig.

    Very heartwarming story Fahad saheb. To me, there are some clear cut lessons to be learnt from your narration.

    1. Start with limited number of pairs
    2. Experiment with cost effective birds
    3. Re-invest in the hobby if you want it to flourish
    4. Always seek information, analyze it, practice with caution, and turn it into knowledge

    Very good sharing, thank you.
