Hi there and
to the forums!
I've made your post into its own thread so as to not derail the other person's thread
To make a thread, go to the subforum in which your thread would fit, and click "New Thread" at the top of the page.
Your little budgie is a very handsome boy! What's his name?
You should replace all his dowel perches with natural wood perches of different sizes and shapes to exercise his feet
Here's a link with more information:
Meanwhile, you've come to a great place to learn even more about the best of budgie care practices! Be sure to read through all the forums' many budgie articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subforum for easy reference) to ensure you're up to date on everything
If you have any questions after doing so, please do ask as we'd love to help.
Meanwhile, we can't wait to see more of you and your little boy around the forums!
