  1. Budgie Behavior
    I have a fairly young albino (possibly female) that LOVES newspaper. I first noticed that she was trying to pull up the newspaper I use as a liner to catch her poo. Then I started shredding newspaper and leaving it at the bottom of the cage so that she wasn't getting frustrated not being able to...
  2. New Budgie Arrivals
    I've owned parakeets in the past, however, this is my first albino. I thought she was pure white until I examined her closely. While her eyes are the standard red/dark pink and her legs are flesh of an albino, her feathers have a very soft pink hue to them. The part of the feathers just above...

    New worried budgie owner I added a photo I just got my Budgie and am wondering what is going on. Maui is eating normally defecating regularly, flying great, out on her play set all day fine hanging out with me. I noticed today that if Maui's wings are spread out I think the feathers are called...
  5. Budgie Behavior
    I got a new parakeet (it's my first ever bird) and I've had him for about a month now, and I just have a few questions. I think he's strange because no matter how much I googled I never heard anyone with this specific problem. When I first got him, he always wanted to come out of his cage the...

  8. Mutations and Genetics
    Hello! This is the first time I have ever used a forum before and I'm not super well-versed on parakeet anatomy so please be patient with me as I work this out! c: I have a budgie that I'm unsure of the mutation. I had assumed he was sort of standard green, but I noticed recently that the...
  9. Your Budgie's Health
    Hello! I recently brought home a new baby budgie who is thought to be between 6-12months. My previous budgie passed after 12 years, so I haven't dealt with a new baby since. I noticed there was some darker brown coloration near the center of the cere. I just want to make sure it's natural...

    I have a 5 year old budgie named Risto ( common peasant name in my country) nicknamed Ricky. I have him from when he was 2 months old and seeing as he wasn't hand raised I think I have done a good job taming him, but he still doesn't trust me completely ( he is scared when i try to take him in...

  16. 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...
