Answer: https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=103906
Recognizing Illness in Birds
Date Written: May 2009
Author: Dr. Peter S. Sakas, DVM, MS

Birds hide their illnesses very well as it is part of their natural defenses.
A bird that is obviously sick in the wild will be subject to predator
attack or harassed by other birds.

5. Budgies are predisposed to developing lipomas; what is a simple way for every budgie owner to help prevent this in their birds?

6. Why is Sunshine and/or full spectrum lighting important for budgies?

https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=103903
Parrot Island (Association of Avian Veterinarians) 2004
The Necessity of Full Spectrum Lighting
Terry Boudin

Sunshine and/or true full-spectrum lighting include UVB rays that are necessary for the synthesis of Vitamin D

7. Name FIVE common signs your budgie may want to begin laying eggs

https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=90584
Change in Cere Color
Moodiness
Excessive Chewing
Spending more time in dark corners
Eating more Calcium

8. How can you prevent a second clutch of eggs from a hen whose chicks have recently hatched?

https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=90584

To Prevent Another Clutch-
Removing the hen once the chicks are 3 weeks old and letting the male finish raising them is the best thing to do. Around the 3 week mark the male takes over most of the feeding and caring for the chicks, so if you do not want another clutch removing the hen is the best way to prevent it from happening. Putting her in a separate room will help the male focus on caring for the chicks, and as soon as the chicks are ready to be separated from him at 6-8 weeks you can put them back together without a nest box and easily avoid another clutch.

9. List THREE causes of splayed legs in budgies
https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=86448


Poor diet- The chicks do no have enough calcium and nutrients to develop strong muscles and bones, and with so little strength in their legs they can not stay up right under them.

Lack of good traction in the nest box- If the bottom of you nest box is not a rough surface that the chicks nails can grip they can not keep their feet under themselves and develop good muscle tone in their legs, causing the legs to splay outwards and become deformed.

The hen sits too tightly on young chicks- Having a hen that sits very tightly on the chicks with no other eggs in the nest to help take the weight off of them is another factor in splayed legs. If you have only one or two chicks be sure to leave an egg or two in the nestbox even if they are not fertile to help take some of the weight of the hen off of them.

10. What steps should you follow if your budgie is actively bleeding from a broken blood feather?
https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=73597

Restrain bird with clean cloth
Examine bird, remove quill with steril tweezers
Apply corn starch or flour to wound and apply pressure to stop bleeding

11. If my budgie has been bleeding (but isn’t actively bleeding now) and has blood on it’s feathers what should I do to clean them?
https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=73597
The bird may have stained feather wings for several days to a week.
Usually the bird can clean itself just fine through preening.
Do not promote the bird to take a bath or attempt to wash the blood stain off the feathers for at least a day so that the wounded area has time to mend and does not re-open. If the bird has lost a lot of blood, it is recommended that you feed him an electrolyte solution which will compensate for lost ions due to the massive volume of blood lost.

12. Why is quarantine so important?
