  1. Your Budgie's Health
    Hello, I have a budgie who just turned 7y/o. About a year an a half ago he started this odd behavior of biting the air. He reaches out and just makes a biting or pecking motion like hes in a trance and he'll do it for quite a while if left alone. Should I be concerned? He only does this when...
  2. Budgie Behavior
    Hi everyone. I've had my budgie "Marvin" for almost a year now. He's been a complete sweetheart most of this time, except for now he has a very unhealthy relationship with toys and I'm not sure what to do. Ever since I gave him his first toy (a shreddable one) he's been absolutely in love with...

    Munchkin does a strange movement that I don't think is bobbing, crop adjusting, or regurgitating. Almost like pulling her head in towards her body? Tried to get a video of this: https://photos.app.goo.gl/YBXm3zx3VTfLzn8D8 Has anyone seen this type of movement? Does anyone know what this is?
  5. Budgie Behavior
    Mainly posting here because I've sifted through piles of links about budgies and bird behavior over the course of weeks now and nothing I've found has really helped with what's been going on. All right, so my first budgie is named Sprout, who turned out to be a male. He was rather young when I...

    Hi there! I'm minding my cousins baby Quaker (Monk) parrot for a week, and my budgie Ace is acting...strange? Even though we have two budgies, I only bring one out at a time when playing with Ringo. Houdini is pretty aloof, and they don't really interact. Ace on the other hand is very...
  7. Taming and Bonding
    I adopted a 3+/- year old female budgie (who I named Tuppence A. bag) about 6 weeks ago. For the first two weeks that I had her I had to corner her and grab her from her cage in order to give her an antibiotic for an infection she had contracted from her previous owner. After that was doe I...
  8. Taming and Bonding
    I've had budgies for many years and only now I have decided to join a forum. My current budgie likes to cuddle with me, and I've noticed that when he gets comfortable, he likes to rest his beak open on my finger. And just keep it like that. It is very cute but why does he do it? I've never seen...

    Help! We got our first budgie (together, I had one that spent its entire life biting me when I was a teenager) on October 20th. She was a pet store bird but for a pet store bird she was very docile. We let her settle in before beginning to try to interact with her and did everything by the book...

    My new budgie Cosmo, who I got two weeks ago, is tame and rides around on my shoulder sometimes. Earlier when I went to the kitchen to make some lunch he started squawking and chirping. He was in his cage and he's done this once before. He doesn't ever do this when I'm in the room, and the...

    I have 4 budgies. Sunshine(female) fluffy(male) Jae(female)pinchy (possibly male). During the day they all play together and everything seems fine, however sometimes it seems like they don't play with pinchy as much... or maybe pinchy doesn't play with them as much, but at night, pinchy sleeps...

    My little Charlie recently started into his 'teenage-moody' phase, and has begun biting, something he never did before. he does not protest to stepping up or coming out of his cage, but will go after my fingers in they are too close to him when he is out, like when he is sitting on my laptop and...

    I would let my two parakeets, a female and male, out of the cage from time to time while I kept a close watch of them. I just witnessed that my female parakeet stepped on the back of the male parakeet. When the male walk, its dragging the female that is on his tail. The male would screech...

    I am a brand new budgie owner and I adopted my first one this past sunday. After extensive research I have come to a loose conclusion that my budgie (his name is pablo) is fairly young! His forehead is completely yellow with faint stripes so thats why I assumed he is growing out of his baby...

    Hi! I'm very new here and recently added a second parakeet to our tiny flock! Our newbie (Lilo) is about 10-11 weeks old and was recently introduced to our 1.5 year old male budgie Bailey. They live in separate cages and get along pretty well when they're out, but Bailey is a little...

    Hey guys, So I've been reading through the threads in the behavior forums, but I either missed it or can't find one that I relate too. Lately, I've been bonding more with my budgies Hades and Persephone, and I've had positive responses. A few days ago, without warning, Persephone seemed to get...

    I suppose this depends on your Budgie, but in general, how do budgies respond to cameras ? I want to photograph my budgie , but I don't want to scare her. She barely trusts me, and while I want her to do new things and get out of her horrible old routine , would photographing be a bad decision...

    My 7 month old budgie Ace started spitting up seeds while on my shoulder today. She (idk the gender, i just call Ace she) hasnt had any change in diet or anything. I was sitting on the couch with her on my shoulder, and i started to notice seeds were flying into my ear and face and hair and...

    I just wanted to make this thread for people to post about what songs or type of music their budgies like to listen to. Me and olive love listening to music and currently he sings his heart out whenever we listen to 'total eclipse of the heart' by Bonnie Tyler.
