  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...
  2. Follow-up Center
    Hello, I could really use some advice. I adopted Skye just over 6 months ago (She's 6 ish) from a breeder to be a companion to my budgie Joey. Today Skye was spooked and ended up flying into a window. Her cere started bleeding so I went to go tend to her wound. While I was taking care of it I...
  3. Determining Gender
    Hi everyone, I'm not sure if this should be in the emergency section but I fear it could be something that needs immediate attention, Title sums up what is happening. I can't verify the age/sex personally, but the pet shop claimed the budgie is male. Here are the comparison pictures...

    Hello fellow Talk Budgies members! I am new to birds and will soon be caring for a green budgie -- who was named Nino by my boyfriend and I. :green budgie: I have read through many of the forum's stickies, but am still unsure of and concerned for Nino's health.

    My little Cthulhu sneezes although he seems perky and energetic otherwise. I took him to the vet (I am lucky enough to live near an exotic pet hospital) and we have progressed treatment from thoroughly de-dusting the room to giving an antibiotic and an anti-inflammatory. These need to be given...

    Hi all, I used to have this budgie, which i gave to a friend for a year, and now has returned it back to me because he has too many. I've noticed a small overgrowth/small lump on the beak. I don't thing it is scaly mites (i will treat with invermectinin anyway in a few days if all is ok). I...

    Meet Puddles, She (I'm presuming she's a girl for now until she's old enough to sex) is a few weeks old and has just left the nest. Now unfortunately in my aviary there has been an incident and I'm not sure how but Puddles' beak has been damaged quite severely and I'm not sure if she will be...
  8. Diseases and Illnesses
    Hi, My budgie, Pippin, is a very active and happy little fellow. He sings a lot and he is very social, always wanting to be close to me and my boyfriend. The past few weeks he has had a very thin and white horn-like growth next to his beak. It grows very quickly and I think it is soft, because...
  9. Diseases and Illnesses
    Hello everyone, and especially to everyone who helped me out a number of weeks ago when I initially posted this thread : http://talkbudgies.com/diseases-illnesses/271234-healthy-beak-2.html Since then and the application of the medicine Jim's Beak has improved no end, and looks to be pretty...
  10. Diseases and Illnesses
    Hi there, I'm new here but I just wanted to call on some well experienced help. My budgie is about 9 months old, called Jim and basically I just wanted to check if his beak looked OK, I have read and seen horror stories about Scaly Beak and mites and the like and just wanted some advice...

    One of my new budgies fresh from the pet store has some sort of beak disease. Description The beak seems larger on the bottom than it should be. Also there are scaley sections inside the beak (I got the budgie to bite me so you can see). The outside of the beak shows a crack and a white spot...

    How do you recognize a healthy bird? The health of birds is something I really like to investigate, and I love learning more about health every day. Birds have a really complicated body, and especially budgies and other small birds. Illnesses are most of the time not shown because of their...
