Welcome to my website! My name is Sam Gibbs and I keep and breed Agapornis personatus. I am an English guy who now lives in the Netherlands with my wife Marlous and our 4 dogs.
Enjoy the website!
I have bred most of the common mutations in personatus, but my main interest is in wild type green birds. I also have several other mutations such as blue, pastel, dark factor, dominant pied and turquoise. The majority of these mutations do play a role in my green project though.
I have composed several articles sharing my experiences judging various shows. Judging at shows is something I take serious. Especially helping those who want to improve the quality of their birds. At the same time, I still have a lot fun and really enjoy it! Feel free to leave a comment, like or share!

CDE National Championship, Chantonnay, France 2016 On the 3rd weekend of October was the CDE National Championship of France and I was invited to judge the Agapornis.
