    Hey I know I've only been posting about my frantic health scares since I've joined this forum. I apologise, but Im a new bird owner and anything I notice is new to me! I've had my budgie for almost two weeks now and only today did I notice this crusty bubbly thing on his foot. I attached photos...

    Hello, today I noticed my budgie (Cheeko) crouching forward and looking intently suddenly, it looked weird to me because he was like that for several minutes. But I was leaving the housing so I couldn't keep watching him. (first two images) I left on some TV and went out, I came back 4 hours...

    Is my budgie dying? Hi everyone, I have an 8 year old male and a 6 year old female. They've both been healthy. They're both bonded to each other but my female budgie can be territorial. Yesterday, they were fighting. I broke them up by scaring them. Usually that works but she was especially...

    Hi I just got a budgie for the first time about two weeks ago and I dont know if this is normal but I noticed my budgie has what look like bald patches under his wings and back (only visible when he stretches his wings). They look dark and white so Im not too sure if theyre bald patches or just...

    Burning diluted essential oils Hi everyone, I know that burning scented candles/candles that aren't beeswax based around your budgies is harmful to them as their respiratory systems are not as strong as ours, but I was wondering if burning a drop or two of an essential oil diluted in water...

    So I have three parakeets. My first yellow budgie is a rescue that I got from the wild. The second is from a bad pet store that had 10 crammed in a small cage. The third comes from a good pet store. They are all separated because they seem to not 100% get along. I've been trying to tame them but...

    I recently have noticed a change in colour of my birds' droppings. It use to be dark green and now it is this (see image). It also looks "wetter" and seems to dry down slower (if that makes any sense). I have started to feed them fruits and vegetables, but they don't really eat a lot of it as...
  9. Follow-up Center
    I have had my budgie for over 6 years and have never noticed anything majorly wrong and therefore have never taken her to the vet but now I'm beginning to notice unnatural things. I saw the other day there was poo stuck on her behind in the feathers and it looked to be a bit so I cleaned her...

    Hello! I am a first time budgie and pet owner. Throughout my care for my budgies, I always research everything everyday to make sure I'm doing it right. For the past few days, I have been noticing a red spot under my budgie's beak/neck(?) area. I'Ve asked a few people and some say it's not...

    After a few months of settling down and training, my little buddy Joey is doing great. He's climbing on my shoulder, 'stepping up' and being pretty vocal in the mornings and sometimes in the evening. He's majority of the time relaxed and calm and happy. With his diet though, I'm not sure what...

    I was reading this book on budgies and saw this picture. What is this called and where can I get one?

    Is there a book on the wild plants that budgies can eat like with descriptions and pictures of the plants and when they bloom or do you just have to look online?

    Hello all, I am new to these forums. I came here because my girlfriend recently started going on here as well for advice, her username is Fletchling. We have an adorable little baby budgie boy HoneyDew, and Fletchling and I noticed something odd this morning. We woke up and we took off the...

    (Note: Sammy is a budgie with megabacterias. His last treatment finished 4 weeks ago, and he's been fine. He never has them very badly because we always catch them very quickly.) Hi, everyone! So today Sammy was fine, playing, talking, giving "kisses," etc. After we ate lunch, I took him out of...
  16. Budgie Videos
    Hello, everyone! Sammy is feeling much better and continues with his meds. His regular vet re-opens tomorrow after remodeling the clinic, so we will call and make an appointment for a follow-up. I caught this video this morning of Sammy playing with one of his favorite toys. He chatters...
