  1. Your Budgie's Health
    I just brought a new budgie on Tuesday, He's a baby(7 weeks old). Once I had put him in his new cage I noticed he was opening his beak a little. I wasn't sure if this was due to stress or not so I left him. It's now Friday, he's been eating, chirping, flying and sitting on our fingers. He...

  3. Budgie Breeding
    First time budgie parents. Baby just hatched a few hours ago and female is sitting on it some. Also, she panics when we get near and tries to hide it. :lovie 1: I can hear the baby chirping so he's alive, but she freaks out when we get near.

  8. Budgie Breeding
    My budgies laid 8 eggs ( pic included ) and I was wondering if I could take one egg after it hatches and grew some feathers so I could tame it. I don't want to right away take 1 egg and wait for it to hatch because then I'll have to incubate it and feed the baby bird when it hatches. That's too...

    Hello! I recently brought home a new baby budgie who is thought to be between 6-12months. My previous budgie passed after 12 years, so I haven't dealt with a new baby since. I noticed there was some darker brown coloration near the center of the cere. I just want to make sure it's natural...

He spends about 5 hours a day outside the cage, as I am currently at University, and so do a lot of studying at home.

    My bird Mishka recently lost his mate so I got him another companion who is only 10 weeks old. Now this new companion is eating, preening etc. BUT he sounds very sniffly, almost like he has water up his nose or something. He is constantly making a noise and as I said just sounds sniffly. There...

    I came home today to find our new young bourke parakeet, Baby, with a small scab on his stomach. There is some fresh blood too! I don't know what happened. I am very worried because in the past 3 months, 3 of our bourkes have died from lead poisoning from a breeder's cage. This one is our...
  15. Taming and Bonding
    Do I go about it like a normal taming? Put my hand by them, then try to step up? then take them out of cage to tame them? should i do it one on one? with two babies at once? Is it too late for them to be very tame? They all cry/try to bite when I handle them, even though I've handled them pretty...
