What could people possibly want to know about me?!!
Well, for a start my name is Toni Poad and I live in New Zealand near a city called Tauranga, in the Bay of Plenty.This is in the North Island of New Zealand.
I am a married mother of two teenagers, living on a small
piece of land that in NZ we call a lifestyle block. I have a few chickens,
sheep and a couple of cattle. I have been between aviaries for anumber of years, but the new aviary is underway and soon to be complete!
I got my first budgies (two pair) and a small aviary when I was fourteen. I soon added cockatiels, then more budgies! Eventually I needed a larger aviary with an area for breeding and I was really hooked! I bred budgies for many years, including in my bedroom at university (as a newly married, I have a very reasonable husband..). I have also kept and bred Zebra Finches, Bengalese Finches, Cockatiels and Bourkes Parakeets. I have kept, but not bred, Indian Ringneck Parakeets and Rainbow Lorikeets.
I hope to add more information to the website as my aviary is completed and I begin breeding. Sharing the process and enjoyment of these wonderful birds.
Feel free to make contact, I appreciate the feedback and will help with any questions if I can.
