" This new release DVD is an informative presentation of the Australian
Budgerigar and its journey to England and around the world including the
world acclaimed Molkentin Stud in South Africa, one of the top studs in
the world in the development of exhibition quality show budgerigars.....the
DVD is well worth seeing or giving as a gift and if you cannot get to
South Africa, this DVD will take you there."
Reinhard, Holger and Christine Molkentin
- The budgie today is the most popular pet bird in the world.
- They originate from Australia and in the wild they are normally
only seen in the green colour form.
- The budgie is in fact the smallest parrot in the world and strictly
speaking is classified as a parakeet.
- Budgies are gregarious birds, and in the wild, are often seen
in massive flocks searching for food and water.
- The normal green budgies found in the wild are a lot smaller
than the very big show budgies that one sees on todays show benches
all over the world
"Reinhard and Hoger Molkentin, arguably two of the world's Supreme
Budgie Breeders, and multiple winners of national show budgie champions
in both Germany and South Africa , possess a magnificent stud of 1000
superb birds in an amazing range of colours . This DVD introduces every
aspect of the hobby. See the progress of quality from the indigenous wild
and tiny budgerigars from Australia , to the massive and beautiful show
birds which adorn the World Championships in modern times .
This wonderful DVD describes the many challenges faced by Breeders of
Exhibition Quality Budgerigars in over 70 countries . Breeders strive
to breed superb exhibits to win " Best in Show " Awards against
all comers. The satisfaction and thrill in winning cannot be equalled
I commend this DVD to all who both love budgies and delight in the challenge
to breed many outstanding winners."
