    Hi, My budgie Storm is ten years old. I recently took him to the vet for some wheezing. He had been diagnosed with a respiratory infection. It is day three of his medicine (amoxicillin by dropper.) I have been letting him take steam in from the shower. He is very active and singing and wants to...
  2. Your Budgie's Health
    Hi everyone, I'm very new here and this is my first post, so please forgive me if I am not posting this at the right place. I had to administer my budgie two different meds due to a health condition - one is an antibiotic and the other is a pro kinetic. I asked the doctor if I can administer...

    Hello! I'm new to TB so I'm not sure if this is how I post but my budgie Kesha has been having a problem with her left leg it started yesterday and I'm not sure what caused it. I tried looking for what it may be but nothing seems to fit. She keeps her left foot up and tries to avoid putting...
  4. Budgie Behavior
    For almost a week now, my 5 year old budgie is puffing his feathers, he seems sleepier than usual, and his tail is bobbing. He is still eating, drinking, preening, and his droppings seem normal, but his lack of energy is worrying me. I put a heater in his room, gave him some probiotics and...

After a few days when I bought a male budgie for my female budgie, I noticed his feet started to swell up and turn...

  7. Your Budgie's Health
    So I know that when female budgies get hormonal their Ceres turn kinda brown and may crust, which is happening to mine. However, some weird yellowish brown stuff is staining or crusting above her cere on the feathered part. I noticed a tiny feather from that part fell and stuck to her cere. My...

    Hello everyone, my budgie is not feeling well. Today my budgie was wet because he took a bath and he fell down from a height of 1 meter (3.3 feet). I do not know if he landed on his feet or not, but since then he can not stand anymore. Whenever I try to put my budgie on his feet, he tilts...

  10. 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...
  11. Budgie Behavior
    Well, I finally gave in and got my first budgie. At this point, I decided to join this forum to ask for help raising, caring, and bonding with my new family member. Already, though, I think I've made some mistakes. Upon setting up his cage and letting him in for the first time two days ago, I...

    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...
  14. Taming and Bonding
    So I recently have acquired a budgie. He's still fairly young (under a year) but his last owner didn't get him out of that cage that often. He now bites you if you put your hands near him or the cage. These bites aren't painful but more like little nibbles. He also doesn't like leaving his cage...
  15. Taming and Bonding
    I got my budgie almost a month ago, and I am pretty sure he already trusts me(at least a little). I have tried so many methods on trying to tame him, but none work. First I tried the simple method-slowly approaching, putting hand in cage, hand feeding, then trying to get him to step up (didn't...
