  1. Diseases and Illnesses
    I noticed my budgies tail was bobbing so i immediately separated him from my others and then monitored him and saw he was sneezing more than normal and sometimes it sounded like he was congested when he breathed. i set up a humidifier for him and ran a hot shower for a bit to help clear out his...
  2. Diseases and Illnesses
    Hey guys,it's been a long depressing, and at times infuriating whirlwind of trying to get vet help for my budgies.

    I know I should've adopted, but in my area none were available so I got him at petsmart. I have him covered right now, but he hasn't been doing much the last two days, really only sitting still. He freaks out when I have to change his food and water and I haven't seen him drink at all. Also his...

    Hi, I recently got a new budgie, my first budgie, he's a blue and white coloured budgie who is called Joey. Anyway, right now I'm on school holidays so I can't spend pretty much all day with him but I was wondering, when I go back to school, should I put a mirror in his cage to sort of keep him...

I am a stay at home mom so I am always home and the budgie is always in the same room as me all day. We have owned him for over 2 months and he is hand tame...

    Hi everyone, We recently rescued a little baby budgie that was clinging to our wire doors late one night a few weeks ago. We immediately put it into the cage we already owned with my female budgie Tibbles, who is around 5/6 years old. The new budgie (still unnamed, unfortunately) went...
