Here's some background information before you dive further
into my site. I've always loved animals and always will, once
upon a time my goal was to become a veterinarian, however
I had to give up those ideas since it's just too hard to get
into that school (believe me, I've tried). Anyway my fascination
for birds, especially for budgies started 1984 or 1985 when
my parents got a pair of budgies, both recessive pied greens
(I don't remember the green shade). The summer came and an
aunt took care of the budgies and they stayed there and eventually
got new owners.
A couple of years later we took care of another pair, which
happened to be the parents to the first ones. The owners were
moving to another city and we were going to take care of their
birds until they were settled down (the birds stayed with
us the rest of their lives).
male was a recessive pied sky blue and the hen was a recessive
pied dark green. After a while we asked the owners if we could
give them a nest box and they said OK. The result was four
babies, three of them having the colour of the mother and
one the colour of the father. I was quick to choose the sky
blue baby, which eventually was called Nicke, he was my absolute
favourite among all the budgies I've ever had since then,
however he's long gone now. You don't have to ask me if I
got hooked by these wonderful creatures, since believe me
I was. Since I got my first budgie I've had many, many budgerigars
and nowadays I'm more into the exhibition type of budgerigars
or English budgerigars as they're also called.
I'm a member of some budgie related clubs Swedish Budgerigar hobby
(SUH) and the Swedish Budgerigar Society (SUK).
Anyway I hope that you'll enjoy your visit to my site and
hopefully you'll get some additional information about our
feathered friends that you didn't know before. Unfortunately
I will not have the time to actively maintain this site as
often as I'd like to, however every once in a while I'll add
something to it somewhere, be it a new photo, new look or
a new link.
