Default Hello

So I have few doubts are mosquitos a threat to duke and also ants.

Duke lets me touch him/her (don't know which )but used to get scared ,now he's okay with me touching .Is it okay for me to touch him and feed him from my hands or am I moving too fast

I also have classes in the afternoon and it ends in the evening ,do I need to get a another budgie for his company ??but other than the classes I rarely leave my room .

I live in a very hot area and we use fans here does it affect the budgie .

The first day duke came he didn't eat and drink water for a whole day and the next day I hand fed and he eats it and he doesn't eat if I don't feed him. is this gonna be a problem in the future and if so any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks for taking your time and replying😁😁😁😁&#x1f6 01;😁

Insects in our homes, especially in the hot seasons, are inevitable. If you and family members are keeping things clean as possible, wiping up crumbs and spilled drips of food, taking precautions to not let ants and insects get so heavy in the home that it infests your budgie’s cage, you shouldn’t need to worry. Your budgie’s feathers will protect him from a mosquito. I don’t believe there is a high likelihood for mosquitoes to get inside the bird cage on a regular basis, and stay in there.

Your budgie should be fine while you’re in class. Provide appropriate toys of different textures. If you aren’t sure if a toy is safe, just ask. Budgies also appreciate swings. Placing the cage in the home where there is activity going on when you aren’t home will help Duke feel like he’s not in isolation. Another budgie is not necessary for this reason. In fact, many times two budgies won’t get along, and that means twice the work and another cage is needed.

Duke should acclimate fine in the heat, as many people where you’re from keep pet birds. Keep his cage out of direct sunlight, and in an area where there is air circulation. Be sure to check that he has fresh water, as it will evaporate quickly in the heat. He might also appreciate a gentle spray (not too close) of water mist.

It usually takes new budgies a few days to adjust to eating well. As far as touching him, remember that birds are naturally wild, and they are prey animals. They aren’t domesticated pets like dogs. It takes much longer for them to trust. Since Duke is very new, I wouldn’t even think about taming him right now. He needs at least a couple weeks to just observe his new environment and adjust. After that, we can talk about moving very slowly at Duke’s pace.

As I mentioned in your Introduction post, we ask that new members take the time to read through the resources we provide. Stickies, Articles, and links. This will help answer many questions you might have, and familiarize you with the forum and what Talk Budgies is all about.

Thank you for the great advice

Whenever I come or when I wake and also when I come near the cage he always stretches his wings and his legs one at a time .is this a bad thing. Should I be worried .

Also can I keep metal toys or only wooden ones are allowed???

No need to be worried. He's only doing as you said- stretching. As for the toys, its best to get toys that are specifically made for birds. Just like with foods, there are some materials that are harmful to budgies. If you go to the 'Resources' section of the forum, you'll find a list of supplies who make and sell bird safe toys. If you wanted to attempt to make your own toys you can google 'bird safe wood' (or whatever material you're wanting to use) and go from there.
