If I know you, and you're reading this blog, you have two choices:

1) Feel free to pretend you haven't, should the contents be offensive, sensitive in nature, or just TMI (Too Much Information).
2) Comment freely or talk to me face to face, and be prepared for further honesty and opinions.

Okay? Okay.

Breeding Season

Yeah, they're in our bathtub, in the master bath. The tower of canaries!

It's like a disease- I can't wait for babies! Last year I started much smaller and ended up with four babies- four died. Not to bad, but this year I'm hoping for more. I am missing a robust male, however. My boys are either too young or not quite amorous enough so it may be no babies- we shall see. Not to worry- I'll keep you posted.

Wow is all I can say.

Wow I thought I had a handful with 1 Hubby, 1 child, 2 cats and a budgie!! I love my budgie, well except when he squawks and wakes up the baby, but I can't imagine cleaning all those cages. How long does it take you each day to maintain them?

Bacchus- It's not bad really. Fresh water daily, seed every other, greens daily, bath daily. Clean out the bottom every week- it's a big tray full of newspaper. It's when they have the babies that it gets a bit more intensive- but I love it. It's a fun hobby for me. Crazy, I know.

Normally they live in a large outdoor cage- way easy. The fantasy (one of the many) is to have an aviary built, which would even be easier.

Ok, now that looks like a lot of work! I'll use the hall bathroom when I'm over so I don't need the epi-pen! I want to meet the babies when they hatch! :)
