  1. General Budgie Talk
    Hello everyone, I've read lots of stuff here on talkbudgies but never made a post myself. Let me start by saying I started with 1 budgie that I purchased when he was a baby, his name is Ozzie Oddbird and he's pretty much my best friend. Last March I found a budgie in my backyard that had a...
  2. Diseases and Illnesses
    My budgie got diagnosed with a fatty liver today. I've had her for around 9 years, got her when I was a wee little kid and I love her dearly. She's been prescribed 3 different liquid medications: hepato support, metronidazole, and enrofloxacin. I only have to give her 0.02 ml of each, but for 14...

    I got a new budgie :clearwing 1: about a month ago now and she is doing really good! She comes over to me when I come up to her cage,she sits on my hand,eats from my hand,eta. But when I take her out of the cage all she does is jump off my hand onto the floor! She has her wings clipped so she...

    I'm thinking of adopting a budgie. I've been thinking of doing so for a little while now, since Raz passed away. I think I finally feel ready to get a new budgie. I still cry about Raz (even typing this). No budgie will ever replace him but ever since Raz passed away I have been trying to look...
  5. Taming and Bonding
    Dio and Elsa are paired, and around 8-9 months old. I got them from Petsmart and I have them able to step up and recently got them okay with playing outside their cage. However they don't really seem okay with my hand as it takes effort to get them to step up and they scuttle away if I get too...
  6. Budgie Behavior
    Sweet Pea is my rescue budgie. She was in a larger cage before I moved one I hand made. It was large enough for her to fly and enjoy but it is now for my finches. I had to buy her one when I moved. She was trying to jam her head though it to escape and wasn't comfortable at all in it. I never...

    I've seen a lot of the posts where people have just gotten budgies and understand I have to be very patient with them. I got them today from another home that didn't want them anymore. It didn't seem like the previous owners were taking care of them very well but they're ok, just scared. So, I...

    Hi there, I'll try and give as much information as possible, because I want to get this right for my feathered babies. So I have 2 budgies, 1 young male and 1 female. I work on a city farm in Edinburgh and recently we were given 7 budgies to look after while the owner/social worker looked for...

    Hi everyone Since you've all been a wealth of knowledge in the past I thought I'd better come back for some new advice! I've had Percy now for 11 days. As some of you know he was super tame when I got him, well he is he's not fazed by anything he has no problem flying and climbing onto me in...

    Hi everyone This is my first ever post so I really appreciate any expert advice you can all provide! I have decided to get a pet bird because it's the ideal pet that can come with me wherever I move to in the future. I have done a lot of research and narrowed it down to a budgie or a Parrotlet...

    Hi! I need some advice bird lovers.:budgie::budgie: This is Kokos. He's about 6 months old and I bought him at a pet store about 4 months ago (I know one shouldn't do that but it was a very well taken care of zoo pet store and all the budgies looked healthy and normal, for a change...)

    I don't have any birds yet, but I'm hoping to get a budgie next year. I live in a college dorm (I will have official permission to have the bird), and I have a few questions about both that and the need to travel home for breaks. I'll just do some bullet points: - Most days of the week I'll be...

    I have two budgies that currently live in an indoor cage. I am moving to university in September and will be unable to take them with me. My mum said she does not mind looking after them when I move away but I know that they will spend all day & night cooped up inside their cage. :( For this...
