Budgie Boy Swoops In For Win

Christian: The Journey to National Champion

In an exclusive interview with ABC South West WA, Dominique Bayens sits down with Troy Holmes, the President of the Budgerigar Council of South Australia (BCSA), to delve into the inspiring story behind his first National victory and his lifelong passion for budgerigars. This remarkable achievement was sparked by an unexpected turn when Troy’s son, Thomas, took under his wing an orphaned budgie, leading them to unparalleled success in the competitive world of budgerigar breeding here in Australia.

This compelling narrative is not just about the triumph at the National level but also highlights the deep bond between Troy and Thomas, as they navigated the challenges and joys of raising budgerigars together. Their story is a testament to dedication, care, and the pursuit of excellence in the realm of budgerigar keeping and underpins their exhibition name of “The Holmes Family”.
