Unique = freak. LOL
SPX is what they call Special X fighter pilots who do some pretty bizarre acrobatic flying at super high speeds. When SPX was a wee budgie he did some amazing flying and zoomed a pilot friends head so he was nick named Special X... I called him SPX for short.
So the Talk Budgie team of "knowitalls"
tried to talk you out of breeding? lol
They mean well when they get on a rant about not to do this or that. They just don't want someone who doesn't have the experience to jump into breeding if they don't know the pro's and con's of what can go wrong or in case of emergency.
It's good to know what you might get into when taking on breeding your birds.
Thats an awesome name for a bird lol Avis could be one of those. She flies laps and figure 8s around the 2 rooms she can get to and never hits anything and only ever lands on cages, perches, or me lol
The first comment I got from them was the breeding rant. I only had one bird! But I've seen it 100x on other people's posts and it's very discouraging.
The part that lost me with them recently is they decided that I had to read the basics of budgie care(which I'm sorry, budgies ARE basic lol) just because they couldn't see toys in the close up pic of Shiro and cause she was bored and I said I didn't have the expensive store bought toys. So they sent me the links. I was so insulted. When I calmly but clearly explained that i know the basics, I just don't happen to have 100s of expensive toys for each cage to switch around(Oops?). They just didn't respond. Almost any post I've made was met with some sort of criticism and negative assumptions.
They've chased off lots of potential members just from the posts I've seen too. And that one guy here that was asking about breeding and automatically was saying not to criticize, first thing I thought was oh they must have been on talk budgies lol
Well intentions are good and well but they need to work on their execution
Basically I find they're only good for mutations lol
There's a whole forum somewhere else dedicated to breeding budgies too which I think is funny lol
And I still say unique = special, not freak lol
