    I think I know the answer to this but posting for confirmation, support, and tips. About 9 months ago, we took one of our budgies to the vet. The vet said that the bird was fine, but we need to take our birds off seeds and have them eating pellets. So he sold us on getting this 5 pound jumbo...

    Hi Everyone! I recently learned about the danger of fatty liver disease in budgies, so I'm looking to improve the diet of my birds. Currently, they eat "premium" seed bought from the local pet shop, millet spray, and Kracker budgie sticks, as well as vegetables every couple of days. Correct...

    Hello all! I haven't posted on this site in years, but I was just reunited with my two budgies this week and I realized how much I missed them and their adorable budgie faces! The birds stayed behind with my parents for a few months while I got settled into a new apartment. They were being...

    Hello, I recently took my boys to the vet (to get a bruised cere looked at). As a follow up to my other post a few days ago about the bruised cere: both boys are fine! However, my vet did mention that Caesar was a bit heavy (39 grams..1 gram away from "overweight"), and that Petrie (for being...

    For my birds I buy the Roudybush Daily Maintenance pellets. I would buy the 3lbs bag. To store it I would keep the pellets in its original bag, and put it within two more bags. I would put that inside of a very very high drawer. I recently purchased 25lbs (hasn't arrived yet) and I would like...

    Hello! We recently got a budgie, and after about 3 days she already warmed up to us and even likes to cuddle and sleep in our hands a lot. In fact she's REALLY clingy. We had her on pellets right when we got her because that's what the pet store associate recommend us giving to her. When at the...

    Iv had my charlie for about two weeks, and he is a sweet cheerful, playful little guy, but he refuses to eat his pellets. he was only at the store for about 1 week, where he was fed about 70% seed and 30% pellets, and had almost constant access to millet, and i have no idea what his diet was...

    I've had my budgies for over a month now and I'm planning on switching them to pellets soon. I would like to know what brands you all find the best / healthiest. I'm hoping the transition will be easy since they're still young. Once they're eating pellets, should I still feed them seed...

    Hi there, I'm trying to convert my parakeet to pellets, and I'd like to know if the ZuPreem Fruit blend pellets are a good choice? This will be a week now that my baby has been on the pellet/seed mix and I'd like to know if she's doing ok? She eats the pellets a little but will fish for any seed...

    Hi, Firstly I apologise if there is already a thread on this topic that I cannot find, I've been searching for nearly an hour for an answer to my question and decided starting a new thread was the way to go! All the threads I could find had been closed. Took my budgie Mike to the vet...

    I've been switching Winthrop over to pellets at about 1/4 more pellets in his diet per week. I noticed yesterday that he dropped from his normal 32 grams to 30 grams and today he's at either 29 or 28 (my gram scale isn't digital and he moves a lot, so it's hard to be exact). I'm going to begin...
  13. Diseases and Illnesses
    So does anyone's budgies occasionally have "sick" looking poop (runny, light, ect.) but because the bird is stressed? If, for example, someone she's unfamiliar with looks in her cage she'll have a wet runny stool a few seconds later. When she's relaxed, everything seems normal! Any ideas...

    So those of you have read about Raz's recent 2 day food strike (Here:"Raz isn't pooping" thread). It was due to not getting enough seed as I switched him to pellets too soon. Here he is eating happily again now that I removed the pellets :). Also I got some funny (though very blurry pics) of...
