Unhappy URGENT need advice

Hi! I need some quock advice and help.
I was given these birds, cramped in a tiny cage. Owner had to move.
I don't have the funds to buy them a good sized cage. So i set this GoFundMe https://www.gofundme.com/space-for-m..._co_campmgmt_m up, if anyone would like to donate even a tiny amount will help. Thank you so much ❤
or now, im letting them fly free in the room for atleast 30 minutes each day.


****Questions****:
I need some tips/info on what fruits/veggies to give them? And if i get the funds, what cage size would be appropriate?? And any other tips you think would be helpful.
Also! What should i do until im able to get a cage??

These cages are quite large and can hold up to 8 budgies at a maximum.
This is a link to a bird rescue group in Anchorage, maybe they will have some advice or help for you?

Firstly, good on you for taking these birds in and doing your best to give them a good home. Have you looked for local buy/sell groups on Facebook? Often youíll find bird cages for sale there or you can put up your own post asking if anyone has a cage(s) they can let you have, or even borrow until you can afford to get a big one. If you canít find a big cage, even getting a few smaller cages to split the birds into would help. You could also try Craigslist, or if you or a family member are handy, maybe you could rig up a temporary inside aviary until you can find a permanent solution.


I donít know if this cage is available where you are, but itíd be great as itís nice and wide and can be divided into two if you need to separate birds.

Wow! That is a lot of birds for such a small cage, thank you for taking them in and trying to make the best of this situation!!!

I'll address the questions not answered yet.

If they currently are not eating any veggies or fruit, then you may have a hard time convincing them to try out something new. However, don't give up !! If one bird decides to try it out, then the rest will soon follow.

The easiest foods to start out with are leafy greens. Spinach, Arugula, Parsley, Cilantro... Then you can try some broccoli, peppers, eggfood, ect.

Fruit is usually very high in sugar, and should only be fed once in a while.

If they are currently seed addicts, (which most birds are) you can start by improving their diet by sprouting the seeds you currently have. Here is a link to my sprouting guide. Keep in mind that there are many ways to sprout seed, this is just the way I do it, and I find it's the easiest for my routine. You can check out other ways in the nutrition forum.

Thank you for taking in the birds and trying to improve their lives!

Contact local animal shelters and bird/wildlife rescue organizations. They often have cages that the will sell for very low prices and, given your current situation, may even be willing to donate them to you.

I am quite concerned as you say on the link you're struggling to afford the food for these birds. Do you have funds for vet bills?

It would be wise to cut back the amount you have to a more manageable amount.
If you let us know where about in the world you are we can try and help you find a home or animal sanctuary for some of the birds.

You will need multiple cages to house all those birds. Are you in Alaska, if so, where? Are you able to get to any pet shops, they might be able to direct you to a shelter or maybe offer you some type of assistance.

Looks like the go fund me page is for Fort Wainwright, AK

Do we have any members there that are willing to help out? Finding new homes, donating food, cage(s), anything will help these birds right now.
