  1. Budgie Behavior
    Hi! First of all I want to say I'm not from America, we don't have many "luxuries" where I live, no avian vets, no pet stores with big cages (when needed, people make them by hand), almost no people with pets that are not dogs, cats or hamsters. I'm saying this because I am really trying my...
  2. Budgie Behavior
    My budgie is suddenly biting me constantly after we got a second budgie. Will it stop? We had our budgie boy Harry for 9 months. He's the best. He constantly wants to be with us and talks 150 words. However because I'm going out more for work we decided to get a friend. I couldn't take it...

    I figure our budgie, Greg, needs to be taken to the avian vet but they are closed for the weekend. We just purchased our parakeet and he is just a baby. He was handled a bit rough getting him out of the cage at the bird store and I think he got hurt. He seemed fine last night and took water...
  4. New Budgie Arrivals
    For Christmas, Sammy got his favorite present ever…. another budgie! We got him back in november so Sammy could meet him on Christmas day (since quarantine takes a month-ish). He is a male, has not gone through first molt yet, eyes have not developed irises. Ive named him Zazu after a character...

    Hello people, I've just adopted a budgie 3 days ago and he's eating and drinking well. He's still scared of me but we're going to work on that. I've researched budgies alot and thought I'd now enough about them (which I ofcourse don't) and am still getting used to having Lucky (my birb). I've...

  7. Budgie Behavior
    We found a budgie in our yard about a month ago now. Still no luck finding the owner and wasn’t able to get any rescue groups in the area to take him in, so we got a cage and set him up with some toys and activities. He seems horribly depressed though, we’ve had maybe one contact interaction...
  8. Your Budgie's Health
    I've recently received 2 re-homed budgies from a colleague that has moved away, and have had them for under two weeks. They are untamed, and i'm not even sure how old they are (Any educated guesses on their ages are appreciated). They have been lovely so far but today I noticed that the blue...
  9. Budgie Behavior
    Hello everyone, I'm new to the Budgie world. Bit of back story in case it helps. I adopted a budgie about 3 weeks ago named Valentine. The rescue I got Valentine from said he was given to them at about 5 weeks of age, and he was there for 3 weeks, so based on that and how long I have had...

    I got a new budgie :clearwing 1: about a month ago now and she is doing really good! She comes over to me when I come up to her cage,she sits on my hand,eats from my hand,eta. But when I take her out of the cage all she does is jump off my hand onto the floor! She has her wings clipped so she...
  11. General Budgie Talk
    So ive never personally had a budgie myself but many of my friends have and I’ve spent a good amount of time around them and I’ve been considering for a while and now decided I want to get some. I have school and I’m gone usually from 7:30am till 3:30 and some nights I have play practice from...
  12. Budgie Behavior
    I got a new budgie three days ago, and I can't tell if he likes me. He's my first bird, and I still don't really know how to read budgie body language :/ He stays in one part of his cage for a long time, only moving his head, but sometimes he'll fly like a maniac from one perch to another over...
  13. Taming and Bonding
    Dio and Elsa are paired, and around 8-9 months old. I got them from Petsmart and I have them able to step up and recently got them okay with playing outside their cage. However they don't really seem okay with my hand as it takes effort to get them to step up and they scuttle away if I get too...
  14. Budgie Behavior
    I got my first bird a couple of days ago and have been trying to train it to step up. Currently he won't run from my hand or nip at it when it's near him. He will allow me to pet any part of his body except his head and and closes his eyes if I stroke his belly repeatedly. I can get him to step...
