Default Weird Budgies !!!

I have a pair of budgies. I have had female one for 11 months and the male for 5 months now. They do not interact with each other and the only time they make noises are when they see someone. The cage size is 30"18"18". Can someone tell me whats wrong with them? Also the female's cere is brown since last three months.

A brown cere just means that your female is in condition. What is in the cage to keep your budgies entertained? Do you interact with them?

They have swings plastic balls and some baby chew toys. I have provided the nest box for around 4 months.

I suggest you remove the nest box immediately. Since you didn't understand what the brown cere on the female meant, it seems you do not yet possess enough knowledge to safely and ethically breed your budgies.

Are your budgies active? Do they play with their toys and get out of cage time? Have they always been quiet like that, or is it a change you have only noticed recently?

I already removed the nest box a month back. They also get out of cage time daily. I had others with my female and she was quite active. When my male budgie was introduced to my female they were avoiding each other and now they behave like they are the only bird in cage and the other one doesnt exist. also my female still has brown cere.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

As you have a mixed gender pair of budgies, it is very important you take the necessary steps to ensure there is no breeding.

A heartfelt plea to forum members new and old - Talk Budgies Forums
When We Don't Want Eggs

Some females ceres will stay brown for months or even years. It is not a cause for concern.
The fact that your two budgies do not interact with one another is nothing to worry about either.
Some budgies simply prefer their own space and aren't particularly compatible with their cagemate(s).
As long as neither budgie is bullying the other, you have nothing to worry about on that score.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

While it is very challenging for people who live in countries with no Avian Vets, there are steps you can take to help ensure your budgies' health.

With the right motivation, you can work with a regular or veterinarian to get the proper care for your budgie(s).

You will want to do as much research as you can and learn as much about budgies and the best practices for their care so you can provide your little ones with the best possible life.

We have a member in India who has done this and has developed a great relationship with a regular vet.
With the member's research and the vet's collaboration, they have found ways of providing care for her budgie that she would have not been able to manage otherwise.

When you develop a good relationship with a regular veterinarian, that individual can collaborate via telephone or Skype with Avian Veterinarians in other countries if necessary to get assistance in appropriate diagnosing and prescribing treatment for your Avian companions.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

Great advice above . We do not condone random breeding at Talk Budgies . I would definitely remove the nestbox. I think you are fortunate to have your male and female live together harmoniously without the constant urge to breed.

My male and female are like that too, and I'm glad about it. I have the conditions set to discourage breeding because I do not wish to have the heavy responsibility added to my life, of raising healthy happy babies. Also, mine just seemed from the beginning like they only wanted to be "friends" and nothing else. Sometimes you just see that depending on the individual personalities of the birds. Like us, some click better than others, and nothing is wrong with that. All the best to you .
