Default Cricket's Pictures [On Going Thread)

Even though I am still feeding my baby thought is was time he had a more grown up post now that he is in a cage. This was the cage my amazon was in but had to move him to a smaller one cause he kept falling. He is an old man and just does not have the grip he use to have.

Anyways may remove the big rings on the left and replace with rope perch. Cricket does not perch yet but is running all over the bottom of the cage. Still sleeping next to her duck. I am keeping a fresh broccoli spear on the cage and millet with some seed. Changing the paper every morning. I cover the right side of the cage at nigh to keep him warm.I have seen her attack some of the toys but not play yet. She is flapping wings a lot getting ready to fly
The dish towel on top the cage is for when I want to hold her. She still thinks my hands are food.
Yes that is a heating pad. I am home all the time so I can keep an eye on it and it is under the grate so not hot spots to burn herself on. Just keeps that area a couple degrees warmer at night.

Sorry, if the cage is for a parrot, isn't the bar spacing too large for a budgie?

First attempt at perching. Didn't last long. S/He could not keep her balance and preen crop feathers.

He/she is extremely cute.

A 5/6 week old budgie wouldn’t usually have such visible bald areas though. What is Cricket’s history, was she ‘hen pecked’ before you received her or does she have a feather disorder?

S/he did get a mild crop burn when still in the brooder. Maybe she is younger. Not good with keeping up with the passage of time. I got her/him thanksgiving day with only a few pin feathers on wings.

Ok the breeder said she is right on track. And nothing wrong with her/his feathers. Thank you for looking out for my baby.

I'm in favor of co-parenting rather than pulling chicks for hand feeding.
How early does this breeder pull the chicks from the parents?

I would personally be very concerned about any breeder whose chick(s) experience crop burn.

The fact that Cricket still doesn't have feathers on her crop area at her age is worrisome in my opinion.

Have you had Cricket examined by an Avian Veterinarian?

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

Having your budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.
