than cockatiels? I told the woman at the petstore that I was planning on breeding the budgies that I bought from her in March in a couple of years. She said that budgies were much harder and if I wanted to breed, I should go with the cockatiels. She said budgies have to eat a lot more often. Is she right? I sometimes question some of the things she tells me and I am actually looking for a different pet store/breeder. This isn't what I question...but something she said that I want to ask you all about. She said she pulls the babies at 3 weeks and that the budgies still need more frequent feedings because their crops are so small. Tell me your experiences please!
