  1. Your Budgie's Health
    My budgie is moulting now. I was wondering what to feed my budgie during the moulting period since I have heard from youtube videos and friends that they need to have a specific diet when this period begins. Any ideas or information?
  2. Your Budgie's Health
    Hi! I really need your advice regarding my budgie's droppings. I got her in april and since then she always had her droppings kind of abnormal. Here is a picture: I called some vets and they told me it's because of the change of alimentation and environment so I waited and nothing changed. I...

  4. Diet and Nutrition
    I think I know the answer to this but posting for confirmation, support, and tips. About 9 months ago, we took one of our budgies to the vet. The vet said that the bird was fine, but we need to take our birds off seeds and have them eating pellets. So he sold us on getting this 5 pound jumbo...
  5. Diet and Nutrition
    a few days ago I saw my budgies eat their poop. So then I researched what it meant and it said they do not have vitamins and minerals in their diet. So then I researched what foods give them vitamins and minerals and there were many but one the list was carrots. But I already give them carrots...
  6. Diet and Nutrition
    Hi Everyone! I recently learned about the danger of fatty liver disease in budgies, so I'm looking to improve the diet of my birds. Currently, they eat "premium" seed bought from the local pet shop, millet spray, and Kracker budgie sticks, as well as vegetables every couple of days. Correct...

    Hello all! I haven't posted on this site in years, but I was just reunited with my two budgies this week and I realized how much I missed them and their adorable budgie faces! The birds stayed behind with my parents for a few months while I got settled into a new apartment. They were being...
  8. Diet and Nutrition
    As I described in another thread I just bought a young budgie. Among some of the things I have noticed about him is the fact that he does not eat cuttlebone or millet sprays. I have read that budgies love millet but that does not seem to apply to him. Although I did have a breakthrough of a sort...
  9. General Budgie Talk
    I have been attempting to transition my budgie to Zupreem pellets (parakeet size), i’ve got the fruitblend in hopes he’ll pick the yellow ones since they look like seeds. When I hand them to him (in it’s full form) he drops it quickly. I’ve been layering the pellets on top of his Zupreem seed...

    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...
  11. Your Budgie's Health
    My budgie is 8 weeks old, had him for a week now. Ruby is not tamed, but he can eat from my hand as far as i know. He only eats his seed mix (Avia Budgie Food) but won't touch any of his fruits and veg. I've heard its unhealthy for a budgie to ONLY eats seeds and millets (which he loves) but...
  12. Recipes of foods for Budgies
    We would like to introduce natural woods as branches into our budgies' environment, for their claws and for their enrichment. The same goes for flowers/plants. Having seen huge long lists of what is dangerous to the little ones, please does anyone have simple advice of what we could use as...
  13. Diseases and Illnesses
    Hi, So a little background to my budgie: he's a 6 year old, bought from a breeder when he was 8 weeks old, no other illnesses thus far and has only ever needed the vet once to trim his claws. I've come back from uni (I'm studying a Veterinary Nursing BSc degree) for Christmas and have noticed...
