  2. Your Budgie's Health
    Hello all, First post here, will do a proper introduction later! Recently I aquired a rescued budgie. His cere seems to be damaged, it has a white edge close to where it should (I think) attach to the beak. There is a space between the white "edge" and the actual beak. I provided pictures that...
  3. Determining Gender

    I recently bought a new male budgie for my 8 year old, he had a deep blue cere when I got him three weeks ago. He was born last October.

  7. Diseases and Illnesses
    This is my first budgie I picked him up from an aviary and I've had him for about a month. Today I noticed that his cere and his beak look a bit crusty. Could this be mites? if so, what are some good tips for treating this? Bearing in mind he's only just become ok with perching on my hand.

    Hello! I recently brought home a new baby budgie who is thought to be between 6-12months. My previous budgie passed after 12 years, so I haven't dealt with a new baby since. I noticed there was some darker brown coloration near the center of the cere. I just want to make sure it's natural...

    Hey guys, Thought to come here as it's nearly midnight here in the UK. I just noticed my little 2 year old budgie, Bumble, has a lot of red around his cere, and it appears to look like blood?

  14. Diseases and Illnesses
    I am extremely worried about Loop, my female budgie. I have noticed that her cere does not look good at all. It is swollen and crusty, and her nostrils have turned to different sizes.

    Viktor is 8 years old and recently, his cere has gone brown like a female bird. He has lost weight too and shivers a lot.
