Question Budgie can't seem to find water.

On the 27th i bought a 4 month old male budgie, called Vasquez. I bought him in a very nice pet shop and he was in a cage with 3 others (2 male and 1 female) He is quite tame and doesn't mind me putting my hand near him or stroking his chest (however near night time he seems to bite.)
So we put him in his cage and he's managed to find his food on his own but unless i bring him water, he won't drink. Is this normal? He really needs to start drinking because i go back to school soon and won't be able to do it myself.
He can see it but won't go near it!

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your new budgie!

Budgies in general don't drink that much water, when thirsty they will just quickly take a couple of sips and then go about their lives. They also tend to be sneaky when drinking water so it's normal for us owners to not see them frequently drinking water. Surely your Vasquez will drink when needed, so you don't have to worry about that. Just be sure to place fresh water (and food) on a daily basis or more than one time per day if the water is soiled.

Hi and to Talk Budgies!

Vasquez is a very handsome little guy and his behavior is quite normal. I agree with aluz, you don't need to worry about him drinking -- he will when he's thirsty. Sometimes when you offer your budgie a shallow dish of water to bathe in, you'll see them drink before they decide whether or not to get in for a dip.

To familiarize yourself with the forums, please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
You'll find most of your basic questions are answered after you've read through all of them.

I'm looking forward to hearing all about Vasquex and hopefully seeing more pictures of your little fellow soon!!

Hello and to Talk Budgies!

I agree completely with Deborah

Vazquez is gorgeous and I'm sure we'd all love to see more of him in the future!

It's great to have you with us and if you ever have any other questions, feel free to ask as we're happy to help.

Hope to see you around!

Hello, and welcome to talk budgies. Vasquez is a seriously good looking fellow, and we certainly would enjoy
you posting more pics of him...

I've had my budgie for several days and noticed the same. I did place a shallow dish in his cage as well as his normal drinking bowl. He seems quite healthy even though I have not personally seen him take a sip. I have to believe that when he desires a sip, he will find it. I wouldn't worry.
