  1. Your Budgie's Health
    Hi guys so yesterday I have noticed some dry areas on Fernando’s cere. I have read posts on here and looked through the health section and understand it could be face mites or a moult or him but I’m still unsure. I have posted a pic could somebody please tell me if it’s ok or does it look like a...

Today marks 2 weeks since i got him im noticing hes been squawking alot the...

    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...
  5. 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...
  6. Diseases and Illnesses
    Hello, One of our older budgies has air-sac mites, we have taken him to different vets three separate occasions and none of them even told us this could have been the issue, they just told us he was getting old! After looking into it on the web it listed all of his symptoms (unable to chirp...

    Hi there! I am new to this board. After going to Petco to pick up food for my cat, I ended up arriving after the staff had set up a habitat for two bonded budgies that were just dumped at the door for no known reason. The man told the staff he could no longer keep them and turned the other way...

    My little guy, Zircon, was fine this morning. Normally flying around, going from his perches and eating like he always does. Drank too. As I said he was perfectly fine. Then it seems he has fallen. He often throws himself on the bottom of the cage but this time he started screeching. I checked...

  11. Budgie Behavior
    My family just got a pet budgie a few days ago but he has been giving me kind of mixed signals. When I come close to him I notice his tail bobs up and down and I worry if its a respiratory problem like I've heard of, but then he chirps and grinds his beak like normal. I cant tell if he does it...

    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. About a week ago I noticed brownish spots forming in the center of his cere, today the dark brown colour has almost taken over! He seems to be a healthy bird...

    I haven't used this site before but sorry if I am posting in the wrong section but I really need your help. My budgie is about 5-6 years old and she's been quite happy but I recently noticed she squats on her perch and sits really weirdly like almost hunched back and has runny droppings. I could...

    OK things: Eats regularly(diet of seeds and occasional mullet spray or treat), VERY active, chirps regularly, alert, black/dark green and white poos, and playful. Im not sure things: Clings to top of cage a lot to sleep there(though she has fallen in the past no injuries thankfully), sneezes...
  15. Diseases and Illnesses
    My 6 y.o. budgie, Miranda, has been making involuntary chimmering (a wheezy chirp/squeak) whenever she bends over or turns her head down. It's really clear when she's eating and preening. It's been happening for about a month but it seems to be getting worse. Does anyone know what this could be...
  16. Taming and Bonding
    We took in my budgie Charlie almost a year ago. He's about one or two years old and the home we adopted him from was very bad. The owner had two young children who just wanted some pets for fun so they bought two budgies, a boy and a girl. One day the owner came home and found that the dog had...
  17. Your Budgie's Health
    Hello! I'm thinking of getting a budgie in the future when my boyfriend and I get a car. We live in Finland where it gets very cold in the winter especially at nights but we have good central heating and it's 25 degrees Celsius indoors. We live in an apartment where we have one bedroom, a dark...
  18. General Budgie Talk
    I got my first budgie 3-4 days ago and he has yet to go on his perch or climb around at all. I haven't seen him eat or drink but I have heard him shuffle around when I cover his cage at night. I know that budgies are supposed to be scared when you first get them, but I would've thought he would...
  19. Diseases and Illnesses
    I had almost 6 pair of budgies, 2 weeks ago one of my budgie was found dead in the morning which was shocking, she had laid infertile eggs a month ago and didn't look right. We thought it must be the egg laying process that made her restless. After this death found another budgie puffed up with...
  20. General Budgie Talk
    Hello! Yesterday I got a new budgie and I am told he is only a young fella of 13 weeks but I am confused about his cere! It's already blue and he is only going through his first moult! Is it because of the type of budgie he is..is he older than what he looks or could he be sick..?
