Default Meet Sammy



Hola! Got my first budgie a week ago. He is fitting in fine and has become far more docile and less scared.

Welcome to the forums and the ever exciting world of budgie ownership!
You will find all you need to know on budgie care here.
Your Sammy is quite the handsome fellow! I couldn't help to notice in your second photo that one of his nostrils appears to be obstructed by something and that could compromise your boy's breathing on a long term.
I hope he was able to scratch the obstruction out and his nostril is cleared up, but if not, then I suggest you to gently grab Sammy with a soft towel or cloth and have a better look at it. If you notice it's very stuffed, then the best thing to do is to have your Sammy looked at by an avian vet, so that the obstruction is properly taken care of.
Good luck with your boy!

Thanks for the advice and comments!
The picture was taken just as I got him and he had a lot of pins on his head as he was in a rough moult. I think it was just one of his feather had fallen off and onto his nostril. i checked there now just to make sure and his nostrils are clear. Thank you though for pointing that out just incase

kind regards

I'm very glad to hear that and I also figured the obstruction could very well be moult related. Budgies sometimes do get the tiny fluffy "underwear" feathers stuck on the nostrils or even bigger particles of feather dust stuck there.
It's great that Sammy was able to quickly solve the issue with the stuck feather and is now able to breath at 100% capacity!

Hi again, Nevan!

I merged your other User ID into this one so you'll have access to all your old threads and posts.

I'm glad to see you now have your first budgie and Sammy is beautiful!

I'm looking forward to seeing lots more of him (and you) in the days to come.
