Weird issue with leaving cage

Hi everyone,

I've got a wall of a text below so I do apologise in advance.

So a bit of a weird one: one of our budgies has recently (last couple of weeks) developed a strange behavioral problem...

I’ve generally found that the only good way to do it is directly and gradually with a syringe.

However, it also completely depends on the type of syringe as some of them feel like there is no...

We have had him since he was 7 weeks old! He was 4 in April.

I think you are right about the keel bone. It felt very “dull”.

The vet said that it is like a human skeleton, where you should be...

Thanks everyone.

Their cage is open practically all day, although recently they’ve been less interested in coming out. I think that’s what has triggered this weight gain. I also looked at some...

That’s the thing...I’m not measuring it. I’m pouring it in.

He’s not eating all of it: definitely way too much for that. But he does eat “fast” (we have another budgie who eats a lot slower).

Yeah, that's what gets me: I can just about feel the keel bone. It's not prominent, but you can 'feel' it. He feels quite chunky either side though.

He's not an English budgie; the vet recommended...

Budgie weight high, but can feel keel bone

Hello everyone,

We have two budgies; one of which is making sounds like he's quite fat when he flies over long distances.

We've weighed him, and he's come out at 55g! (EDIT: last time we took...

Hello,

Did you switch to kitchen roll from newspaper by any chance?

Kitchen roll absorbs moisture and the droppings will bleed into the paper. My budgies have the same look on kitchen roll and...

Yep, I use kitchen towels in our cage. Nice and soft and easy to replace.

A quick 24/48 hour update:

I put the new stainless steel ones in, but actually they were a bit fiddly with the cage setup. Instead, I sanded down the seam so now it no longer exists on...

I've successfully converted all budgies we've had to pellets (including a 6+ year old).

Superb, thanks!

I think rather than sanding it down I will replace the bowls with stainless steel ones.

I just hope that's it - I can't thinking of anything else that would cause it :\

Interesting comment about the calluses: the red area doesn’t look like a sore (which is what I initially thought).
