  2. Budgie Behavior
    Hey everyone! I'm after a little bit of advice about my female budgie Nimbus. She is approximately 18 months old, give or take, and when we first got her we bought two budgies. Unfortunately her mate died suddenly about 6 months ago. Over the last ~3 weeks, she seems to have bonded/mated...
  3. Budgie Behavior
    My budgie was doing fine, we were getting her out frequently and she seemed happy, then about two weeks ago she laid an egg, she started laying down at the bottom of the cage all fluffed up, she was also climbing on the side of her cage and squashing herself between the hanging toys of her cage...

    Hello, Sorry about the title I can't seem to edit it! It should be - Getting a third budgie. I have 2 budgies, one green male (Buddy) and one blue female (Elsa). They're both around 10-14 months old. Buddy was brought up hand reared and is absoloutely crazy, hardly ever gets tired and is so...
  5. Budgie Behavior
    Hello - I got a new budgie (Buddy) around 3-4 weeks ago and have had him completely quarantined away from my other budgie Joey (Joey is a female, Buddy is a male) Buddy is about 4-5 months old and definitely happy and healthy so I've now moved their cages next to each other. Joey is about 5...
  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...

    Hello, Freddie is 5 months now and since I've bought him he has been really attached to his little plastic toy bird on a spring. I've tried removing it and he sulks and refuses to move. He sits on top of the plastic toy and balances on it playing and I have also caught him trying to mate with...

    When I opened the cage to add a new toy. But when we placed the toy, one of our birds, Choco, flew out of the cage. She was still indoors, and she was right by the cage, but she wouldnt bother going back into the cage. Choco would be on the other side of the room, just staring at the cage. I...

    Claude is a 4 month old budgie who has been living with me for about a month now. 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. He is generally a very happy bird, he has learnt to step up, sits happily on my shoulder, and is...

    Hello! Well im new here, I got my 2 budgies a week and few days ago and they are settling very well :) My question is about their behaviour. So everytime I'd feed Pippin some millets or seeds, my other budgie Merry would look for a bit and then scream like crazy, and that would make Pippin...

    General Budgie Talk
    Hi, I'm new here, but I've had Rio since October. I have constantly been paranoid that he will become unhappy, but I think generally he's great little fellow. He likes Apple and Curly Kale, eats out of my hand, gets on my hand (sometimes with some biting but he doesn't hurt and I don't react...
  14. Taming and Bonding
    I know this topic is widely discussed with conclusive answers. Here I want to write about my own journey being a single budgie owner and later adding one more to the family. In no means I'm against keeping a single budgie, this is just my journey and what I felt. Tweete (I initially named him...

    my year old budgie is happy and healthy. His cage is in our joint dining room and kitchen which is nice and big for him to fly around in. Our back door to the garden is in the kitchen, and whenever anyone opens it to leave or come in, he goes absolutely mental. He screams, chirps very loudly...

    I recently got a budgie (two days ago) and after doing lots of research I've been left with mixed answers. He stays in the same place most of the time, only changes spots if an outside noise startles him and he moves perches. Most of the time he's puffed up, and his tail bobs almost constantly...

    My budgie Sammy, keeps plucking at his feathers and it's starting to look really bad or should I say it already does. I'm not really sure why he's doing it and I am not sure if it's just an irritation thing etc or if he needs the attention of an Avian vet. Before he started really going at his...
