  1. Budgie Behavior
    so Im a new budgie owner and Im a little confused by my budgies behaviour. He is very quiet, the only time he makes sounds is when I play him music or Im watching netflix. I play him queen a lot which I thought he loved cuz he kept chirping like he was trying to sing along but at some points he...

  4. General Budgie Talk
    Hello! I think it's going to take a little time before I get the hang of this, so excuse me if it takes a while. Five days ago, I brought home a new budgie. She's simply adorable. Her name is Lala. I've had many birds in the past, mostly canaries, so I was quite ready to give her space as...
  5. Housing for Budgies
    Hey everyone! So I recently (about 2 weeks ago) got two new budgies. They're still scared of us. I was wondering how I could clean their cage? I've cleaned the bottom of the cage (I keep newspaper under the grate), their food/water bowls and their perches. However, I wanted to clean their...
  6. Budgie Behavior
    After two weeks since my new hand raised budgie came home, I've just been able to get him out of the cage (perch on my finger) without too much resistance from him trying to get back on his cage perch. Now I've tried bonding with him and trying to get him to eat out of my hands but whenever I...
  7. General Budgie Talk
    Hi! I'm new around here, and I just got a budgie for the first time and it's name is Cosmo! I believe he is around 8 months old and I got him from PetSmart. He is special because he tamed to me in just 1 week, and perches on my shoulder comfortably even when I walk around the house. I was very...
  8. General Budgie Talk
    Hi there, I am brand new to both keeping budgies and forums so bear with me! :) I have just agreed to re-home a budgie from my workplace (Gorgie City Farm) as she is not getting handled or as much stimulation as she needs there. I am able to commit a lot of my time to this situation. She is 5...
  9. 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...
  10. General Budgie Talk
    I just brought home my new budgie, who I decided to call Haku, and so far he seems very gentle. He is a quiet bird and as a new mom I want the best for my budgie. I got him a few toys, a swing, and a small place for him to sleep in. He has plenty of food and water. I read that spraying a bit of...

    Hello there. My family recently found a little budgie wandering in the parking lot at my dad's work. We tried finding an owner but no one ever stepped up so now she's ours. Since then I've been doing A LOT of research cause I've never had a bird ever. I always see this site so I decided to join :)
  12. 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...

    New budgie owner here. Been asking for one for years. He's (I say he but I don't actually know) about three months old, and is pale yellowish white all over. He's still settling in to his new home, and he doesn't move much. Started to be more vocal today, chirping a lot and fluttering every once...

    Hello! :) :) New budgie owner, and new to forum's so I'm not sure if I'm doing this right! :p I have my budgie kiwi with two weeks and if the age the shop owner gave me is right that would make him/her 13 weeks old! Kiwi seems to have settled in already and is happy, she/he steps up and eats...
