Oh what a lovely cage! Now she has room for entertaining! And I'm jealous of the snow-- I always go hoe to family in New England, where Christmas is usually white... but it's raining this year.

I second the cement recommendation! I purchased a cement perch for Kimchi, as I had read they were better for their feet than the sand ones. It's hard, but not rough or scratchy. I put it by a toy he...

I'm intrigued that Mallorn likes the edible perch! I've considered one for Kimchi, as he needs more encouragement to chew, but I was always weirded out by the packaging since it doesn't say what it...

she is STUNNING! Best not show Kimchi as he might not be content to remain a bachelor budgie anymore! ;) Also I love the name! Reminds me of marshmallow fluff, which she looks like she's coated in!

I just want to tell you-- I would avoid purchasing an untamed budgie from a big pet store if at all possible. Often, those birds are bonded to each other-- so removing them from their flock can be...

Who said budgies don't come in pink?

Kimchi is turning out to be the rarest of budgie mutations... he appears to be a cobalt spangle doxycyclin budgie.

Hi all,

I haven't posted lately as I have been crazy busy. But yesterday was a hard day for Kimchi, so here I am. A few days ago we noticed that his beak seemed a little overgrown, and had a...

I don't think it's likely that he only does this when you are around. He is closing his eyes, something he wouldn't do around you if it was just stress. Budgies don't sleep in front of predators, or...

Haha you are so right! I am a preschool teacher... This analogy is very relevant for me. He's slowly opening up, though he is still quite timid, particularly in his cage.
