    1. Sunconure / Nandy Conure.
    2. Exhibition Budgerigars

    In small cages black cheeks/White cheeks/Bangales finishes are fine.

    One more thing if possible Eclectus is also good choice if you purchase young bird so it is under your budget.

    sunconures r not very prolific..give maximum 6-8 chicks per year and there is a lot difference between the price of adults and youngs..so not much profitable.
    Eclectus..not to breed easily..once started its a prolific bird but infertility is also common..u cant earn much from this bird.

    Exhibition budgerigars r only profitable when u r known for good birds,a champion breeder and have a long list of people demanding ur birds..u can sell a single bird in 10000 minimum.

    Crested budgerigars r highly profitable..the raising cost is equal to the common budgerigars but there is a huge difference in sale price only hurdle is finding a young good stock.

    Java finches r also highly profitable and in colony easy to care...

    Black cheeks r also trendy and raising cost is low..a moulted single bird can easily go for 500 minimum but zabra finches when not in mood doesnt care for youngsters..

    I have no experience of keeping white tail doves but diamond doves lay only 2 eggs per clutch and time spen of 1 clutch is 2 months almost..u can take 6 youns per pair if there is no mortality and 100% fertility.

    Love bird r highly profitable too and go easily in colony setup....also the young stock birds r easily available..i would advise ficsher,blue mask and black mask as a starters..later u can jump into more expensive mutations..

    Ring necks r profitable too but according to ur budget 3-4 pairs will not give u much profit..

    Red rumps and rosellas...good breeders once started..but fragile birds...not for beginner(beginer as a business point of view)

    My Vote goes to crested budgerigars,javafinches and lovebirds...

    100000 is a good amount to start with 5-7 pairs each specie...

    Regards

    Re: What is better by profit point of view

    without me being in pakistan i think the same rulings apply across here in the uk, keep very common species such as your budgerigars and lovebirds , cockatiels etc, whatever has most demand in conjunction with highest yeilds, keep reinvesting your money into these birds and only then look at bigger birds, you want to aim to have enough breeding of small birds in order for you to buy one or two bigger birds every year, only purchase young in the bigger birds as older birds usually have history attached to them, By regularly breeding of smaller species you can wait for your bigger species to grow up, you are not reliant on them breeding for financial reasons, the small birds do that for you. I am a strong believer in specialising and i think you are at a big advantage to have numerous pairs of the same species, My equivalent of your budgerigars, lovebirds etc are the eclectus in my set up, i personally do not think there is a single species of parrot especially large which can beat them for yeild, no breeding season, they lay all year round, only 2 eggs at a time, sometimes one, if paired right they far easier to breed than the african greys. In my case, the eclectus have been funding the lutino galahs, and as the galahs have grown older they are producing their own chicks, I am keeping these for future breeding pairs, Alhamdullilah On Thursday I hatched a lutino hen, this inshallah will be paired with the split cock I bred in 2011, I have now got 5 pairs over the 5 years I started with them, I aim to have one more pair which Inshallah I have a chance to breed this year. So it can work, you need the basic birds to fund the bigger birds and to pay for seed, supplements, equipment etc, the bigger birds will take time but can in a very short time repay you back
