  1. Introductions
    New to the forum but I've had parakeets for several years now. I have 6 parakeets total - 4 females (Ziggy and Zaggy, Paige, and Splotch), 1 male (Jericho), and one unknown (Zephyr, 1.5 months old). Jericho and Splotch are a mated pair (the second pair I've owned), and Zephyr is their first...
  2. Budgie Breeding
    My two parakeets laid their first egg around January 1. The last, and sixth, egg was maybe laid around the 13th. None of the eggs hatched. I decided to wait as long as possible (today, Feb 1) before candling them to reduce stress on the mother and minimize interacting with the eggs. They all...

  4. 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. I assume it's because there's 4 other eggs in there...

    i have 2 budgies that are showing intrest in the nesting box, i chose them because i was curious to see the color combination of the chicks if they have any, hoping they will have them. the first female died out of unknown causes and they were fighting a lot... we took the male to a pet store...

    So today around noon i come home from church to find that one of my budgie chicks has gotten out of their nesting box and is sitting on the floor, this is ok since it is already fully feathered. Later i go to a birthday party and when i come home i check in the nesting box to see why the mother...

  8. Budgie Breeding
    Hi, I have an outdoor aviary with 8 budgies. I have had one pair breed in the past, so this is not my first experience of budgie breeding. There are no nesting boxes in the aviary but I just discovered that one of my females has been laying eggs in the back corner of the sheltered area. There...

    I have 2 budgies, one male and one female, I think. The female has been chasing the male around and will stand on his tail looks maybe trying to mount? The male cere is definite blue and the females is pink
  11. Budgie Breeding
    Good morning, We have our first hatchling :-). First out of 16 eggs from 3 hens. I ordered a humidifier in the hopes that it would assist in the eggs hatching (i.e. make the shells more malleable, as we have a small heater on all the time)... but then I realized that since the humidifier is...
  12. Budgie Behavior
    Hi everyone, After my budgie Budd passed away early last year, I wasn't sure if I'd ever open my heart to another, but this past christmas my boyfriend's mum bought me a baby budgie after asking me what I wanted- I had been thinking about it for a while. I named him Ollie- he's super cute. But...

    Hey everybirdy :) Swoop and Slugfest have finally come out of Quarantine! And I think I will attempt to breed them, just to give me something to do between breeding my tiels, LOL. There's so much to learn, and even though budgies have a lot of similarities to ****atiels, which I've been...

  15. General Budgie Talk
    Hey all! I'm breeding my budgies for the first time and was recommended to use Petamine as their breeding supplement. I was told that it should bring them into condition. Seeing as how it's primarily a powder (ground corn and things), mixed with seed, I have mixed it with ground Roudybush and...
  16. Your Budgie's Health
    Hi! I'm very new here (Took me 10 minutes to figure out how to post on this and find the right thread) Anyways, I recently got two budgies from a friend of my dads'. He was busy with other things so he couldn't take care of them, so he gave them to my dad who brought them home! I looked up some...
  17. Follow-up Center
    Hi everyone, I have one 27 day old chick and the parents were both doing perfect, then yesterday I noticed the Dad was fluffed up and looking ill. He hasn't been eating and he's been sitting in the nest box with baby for comfort. I thought maybe it was exhaustion from raising a chick, but now I...

  19. Breeding Journals
    Hey guys. I've recently bought a breeding pair. They had 3 clutches before with a previous owner and are both about 2 years old. I've put them in my breeding cage and saw them mating 2 days later. They have their millets, corn, vitamin, cuttlebone, veggies, crushed boiled eggs. The hen has been...

    Hi, I have a pair of budgies, the male is around 2 and a half years old and the female is around 2. They've always got on well together and sing to each other, groom each other, feed each other etc. They've been living together for about 18 months. Lately the female has been acting really...
