I started breeding Budgerigars
when I was twelve years old. At that time, I got a pair
of cage birds from relatives. From this birds I soon got
youngsters and I also bought some more birds mainly in nice
colours like violett, lutino e.g.
When I was 17years old, I met Heinrich Ott the first time.
I got my first real show-budgerigars from him. After some
years we became real good friends. Birds from the studs
of Emil Schweizer and Janos Pece followed. Janos won the
Price for the best bird of Swizerland twice times. I had
the lucky chance to get two brothers of this bird. Janos
Pece himself, had his birds from Hans Ruosch . Hans Ruosch
bought his birds at a breeder called Josef Speck , very
well known in those times. The birds of Josef Speck based
on the famous old studs of Sadler, Ormerod, Finney and Moffat
. The combination of Ott birds, which had ery large feathers
with the very fine and elegant Pece Birds took me a big
step forward. Until 1996 I only had birds from Switzerland.
After 1996, I got Birds from Ralph Jenne, Richard Kuhr,
Josef Mannes and Bernd Stegemann and from Reinhard
Molkentin. Today I breed with 50 cages.
v For these cages I'm keeping 70 cocks and about 90-100
hens. I ring about 300 birds a year. I like breeding with
older birds, at the age of 3-4 or even 5 years. I prefer
to pair an old partner to a young one. I start breeding
at the end of october and with the big part of my birds
I breed until june or july. I take part at the 3 biggest
shows in Switzerland and at the European Championship in
I have birds for sale the whole year through and if it
is necessary I can also give advice in all questions of
pairing the birds or breeding budgerigars in general. Visitors
are always welcome by arrangement.
