Hi all !

I figured I should share some news here, since a few of you already know.

For multiple reasons, I have decided to retire from breeding budgies. This has been one of the most difficult decisions I have ever made, but I know it's for the best. So over the next few weeks/months I will be slowly retiring my flock and will only be keeping Tango and Peanut, as they are easy travel companions and used to road trips.

So, if anyone is in Ontario and would like a bird, let me know!

Sorry about that, PoukieBear. I just wanted to make sure that ex-breeding budgies were good with other birds, but everyone was super concerned I'd be getting the fourth from a sketchy, back alley bird mill. See you tonight! Anyhow, break's over.

Sorry to read that. I used to breed red-bellied parrots and stopped doing that. Was a hard decision but felt that it was necessary.
Wish I lived in your area because I would take one of your beautiful budgies. Hope you find excellent homes for your wonderful birds.

That must have been a hard decision. I hope you enjoy the next phase of your life, whatever that looks like!

More selfishly, I hope you stay on the Avenue - I always enjoy reading your posts and especially appreciate your insights into responsible, ethical breeding.
