Wanted to introduce my new budgie, Avis.
We got him about May 25 of this year and he's been to a vet who said he is healthy. I'm happy to have him and he is usually a pretty friendly bird.
Anyway, I got a bit concerned because after his vet appointment, he started showing signs of sickness. Particularly, he had some stools stuck to his vent. I wanted to know. Is this a normal thing after the vet? It was his first visit
I wanted your thoughts about AVI-CAKES by Lafeber's. I am trying to get my budgie onto a fruit and veggie based diet but it is difficult. Also, curious about Harrison's pellets. Any response would be great. Thank you
Thank you very much for all the replies. I very much trust my budgie-sitter and know she will do a good job. (She has owned many many birds) again, I appreciate all the replies and I will be sure to update you when I return from my trip.
I was sitting next to Avis' cage and figured I'd let him out a little while. He was exploring and out of nowhere he decided to bring me a bit of his avicake. I put it out again to see if he would bring it again but he hasn't. I wanted to know if this behavior was positive and is something I should nurture or something negative and something I should stop.
I live in a condo and I have a problem with smoke. Nearly every day after I return from school there is someone smoking outside on the sidewalk. I worry that this may pose a problem for my budgie. Unfortunately, because I live in a condo, in order to get a rule approved like banning certain areas, it first needs to be approved by a board so that idea is kind of out the window. I have considered buying an air purifier but I'm not quite sure so I thought I would bring it to the forums.any advice is appreciated. Thank you.
I am starting to notice that Avis is starting to stink after his baths. Here you can see him after taking one
I have Avis as you may or may not know. But I also have two others I have named mint and mango. These two are not hand tamed despite my efforts. Anyway, when we brought Avis home, his cage sat on top of the other two's cage. By accident, the three introduced themselves to each other and since then he has been nippy and when he is downstairs he seems to only take interest in them. I since have separated the one from the two and he seems to be better. There were some times where we have left the cage door open not intentionally but he has wandered in and got picked on. Anyway, was it a good idea to separate them?
