Lightbulb Problems?

Hey guys, I know this may be a weird question but what are YOUR problems with your budgies? I don't mean their health but tasks you don't like doing but you do it anyway because of them. For example, changing their food and water dishes or cleaning their cage. THANKS!!!

My personal feeling is that anytime you focus on negatives you foster negativity.
I believe focusing on what is POSITIVE in your experience with your budgies (or anything else in your life) is what is going to bring you happiness.

So, that said -- may I ask why you are asking about problems?

Are you having particular issues with your budgies and that you are looking to have validated by other members?

I don't actually have any PROBLEMS regarding my budgies , I love all aspects of their daily life and well being. I chose to have them and I thoroughly enjoy interaction on any level be it cleaning out cages and feed dishes to applying medication and treatments. I guess I am :nuts:

I love them, so there are no problems with them at all. Even if there are health issues, we try together

I guess, there are some aspects that I like more than others. I think, it's ok to admit that not everything is always brilliant and it's nice to have a thread where you can vent guilt free and without fear of being judged.

What I dislike the most is the constant worrying about their health, well being and happiness and the accompanied stress. I'm constantly wondering if I'm doing something wrong (or everything) and feeling guilty about the things that I know I could do better and potential things that I might not be aware of.

It's not the budgies' fault, of course, but just mine. I tend to obsess and I'm a big worrier anyway. Giving my little budgie ivermectin because I suspected that she might have scaly face mites was an absolute nightmare for both of us (budgie and me) and left me completely shaken and in tears.

I guess, cleaning the cage isn't one of my favourite activities though I really don't mind it. I'm much more regular and conscientious with cleaning their cages rather than our own house..

I wish my little girl was a bit tamer and well, slightly less grumpy and more cooperative. I wish, she'd eat her veggies, fruits and pellets and come out of the cage. I love her anyway but I think, life would be easier and safer for both of us, if she didn't mind so much me handling her when I have to.

I sometimes miss doing other stuff and I feel a bit guilty about neglecting my marriage though thankfully my husband adores our budgies as well. Between my work, the budgies and a bit of household work, I just don't seem to have time for anything else. Again, it's totally my fault. I need to learn to manage my time better. Also, we recently got a new budgie, who is still in quarantine so hopefully once they are at least in the same room I can be with them at the same time.

Anyway, I do love them to bits and all in all, it's definitely worth it. I just wish I could stop worrying about them so much..or maybe I just wish that there wasn't so much to worry about. I keep telling my little girl that she needs to learn how to speak English so I don't have to guess how she is doing but she doesn't seem to be that academically minded... Guess, I need to start speaking more budgie...

lol I was going to say the same! That and the poop in my hair
Really though I don't have any complaints- I actually enjoy cleaning their cage and feeding them; I find that relaxing after a day at work��

If I could get my breeder to potty train them to a litter box, everything would be just hunky dory...

Hi.. I, too, love my birds, but like you, I can get a bit obsessive and worry about every little thing.. . I think it's ok to vent a bit, as it helps to have both validation and a reality check. My little pet peeves are.. messy feathers and whatever so that I have to vacuum every day in their room. And, I guess I'm grumpy that they don't eat all the stuff I offer them.. very picky, they are. I still keep offering, and I think I'll convince them.. but, come on guys.. just TRY it... LOL...
I kind of like cleaning the cages and feeding them, so that isn't a negative for me.. sometimes takes more time than I'd like, but compared the horses I used to care for, it's not a biggie.
