Default Budgie broke out of cage yesterday, have been searching since then..

I put the cage on the balcony and went to brush my teeth, when I came back I was chocked that one of them had broke out through the place i put the food in, not sure how that was possible. I went on to search for 6 hours in a VERY rainy day but couldn't find a trace of her.

Today in the morning I went for about 1 hour but couldn't find her either. I have searched through bushes, trees and the gras but no results.

What should I do?

My budgie had developmental issues which means her feet are malformed, she is also very small, about 20% smaller than she should be because of the developmental complications she had. She is also a very emotionally unstable bird, she gets scared very easily.

I live in Gothenburg so I decided to post this here instead as the other subforum is only the US.

Also what I noticed is that my other budgies don't seem to care that shes gone missing.

Is she likely to be dead? The only predators I could think of here are cats and seagulls.

How do I find my budgie? I really liked her.

Hi Xenat

Sorry to hear that your budgie is lost, here's a link for things to do to help you in your search:

https://talkbudgies.com/lost-found/36...dgie-lost.html

In the link it mentions leaving the cage outside - obviously you cannot do this, with other birds still inside unless you are constantly supervising, as you don't want a repeat incident.
Maybe you have another cage that you can either place out (with food & water clearly visible) or that you could house your other birds in, freeing up the original cage to place outside.

Best of luck

So there isn't much I can do?

I feel very bad because this is partly my fault, I knew that I should supervise them but I didn't know they were capable of opening the cage as they never have done that.

Is it unlikely that I will find her? She is physically weak because of her early days of malnourishment. It was raining yesterday and today it's cold and windy, what can I do to find her? There are a lot of balcony where I live so she might be on one of them...

There is still a lot you do and someone may have found her & be looking for her owner.

As stated in the link, you can...

Contact local vets, animal shelters, newspapers and radio stations in your area. Report your missing bird by telephone to these institutions asap and follow it up with and e-mail. Type a detailed description of your bird and attach a photo if you can for the email.

You can also report your bird missing on Twitter, FaceBook and here at Talk Budgies. Check Craigslist/gumtree frequently to see any reports of found birds in your area.

A good way to get their attention if they are closeby is to play audio budgie sounds. You can access these quickly on YouTube by simply searching "budgie sounds." Turn the volume up and put the speaker beside your balcony door, with food & water clearly visible (even if you do not have any spare cage to leave there).

Make a flyer. Post it everywhere, NEIGHBOURS, local stores, schools, libraries, churches and anywhere else you can think of.


* you also need to find a way to secure the food doors on the cage, so that your other birds do not escape either outdoor or indoor.

Good luck

I've moved your thread to the LOST sub-forum.

Members of Talk Budgies will see the thread when it is in the proper section of the forum.

It is important you contact as many people as possible to let them know to be on the lookout for your budgie.

The links JRS provided to you have all the information in them which you should be following at this time.

The more pro-active you are in searching for her and getting the word out the better the chances will be of you getting her back.

Good luck - please be sure to update us in this thread

I have done everything I can, asked neighbours but one of them didn't resond and their balcony is a potential place my budgie could be at.

It's been 3 days, is she probably dead?

I really don't know what to do.

There is no way for us to know if your budgie has survived so far. It depends on many things including the weather, how strong she is, if someone has found her, if there are predators in the area, etc.

I would continue searching and asking neighbors for their help for a minimum of a couple of weeks.

The answers others have given you are all helpful. Just be sure to keep your bird in a very safely built cage. Also, keep a better eye on the bird. But am sure you already plan to do that. Hard to say how bird got out of the cage. Could be a few ways, not all bythe bird. Good Luck in your search for her.

Good luck in finding your little one... I hope you find your budgie

I just want to say that I had a really strong cage with everything put in place and my budgies (it was three of them at the time) managed to crack their feeding bowl, knock it over and escape through the hole. And - that's not all - when you do manage to remove the bowl, the grid falls down... But they managed to somehow remove that too! Anyway, all three of them were outside the cage when I came home. Luckily, they were in their (closed) room so I didn't have to look very far but still... Even when I leave them inside I always make sure the doors on their room are shut and that the room is budgie-proofed... Just in case.

Keep us posted!
