Good morning, all! (or Good afternoon depending on where you live)
I've just joined so that I have someplace to talk about and get advice about my two budgies. I'm afraid I haven't been a very good parrot parent, but I'm learning quickly!
I suppose my biggest struggle is getting them off of their all-seed diet. I've started making a vegetable, sprout, and legume chop for them and mix a bit of their daily seed into it to encourage them to eat more veggies. They refuse the pellets, but I'm patiently working on that, too.
I'm glad I found this forum! I'm really looking forward to giving my little blue birds of happiness a great life.
Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.
These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.
When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.
You've come to a great place to learn even more about the best of budgie care practices and we're so glad you're here. Please be sure to read through the forums' many budgie articles and "stickies", many of which are included in FaeryBee's post above.
If you have any questions after doing so, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help!
We hope to see you around and meet your little ones soon!
and Princess Mallorn!
