  1. Your Budgie's Health
    Hello everyone! Around 2 weeks ago I noticed that my budgie's beak has become looking rough and scaly (I assumed it's scaly mites). I quarantined him from my other budgies and I went to a local vet for advice. He was kind enough to give me a bit of ivermectin for free and told me to use one...
  2. Budgie Behavior
    Hi! I’ve had my budgie Echo for about 2 years, lately I’ve been getting worried she has some sort of sickness. She regurgitates seeds for her toys (which i’ve been told is normal) but after she keeps doing a “gagging” motion. and she has white crust around her mouth, it looks like food and she...

  5. 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...

    Hi so i got my budgie 5 days ago and for the first few days he (i think) was adjusting fine. I am 15 and my parents dont allow pets inside so we keep him just outside under the veranda. If its raining or too cold, of course I bring him inside. I am not an expert on budgies and i am still...

    Recently i had rescued two sick budgies. The younger one has gotten healthier and is social. The older one was active and social the past few days and suddenly his poo has started getting caught around his butt and he is always asleep.

    I'm not allowed to take him to the vet because my dad doesn't care about them and thinks they're too small to "waste money" on, and there isn't anyone that can drive me to the vet either. The most I can do is try to make him comfortable and care for him at home. He only lets me get vet care for...

    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...

    Hey fellow bird lovers. So recently I had a parakeet pass away and now it seems another one isn’t doing to well either. His eye looks infected, it’s a brownish color around it, he’s sleeping so much during the day, isn’t playing with the others, and sitting at the bottom of the cage. I’m not...
  17. Diseases and Illnesses
    My budgie is definitely ill. She fluffed up and lethargic, but she is calling normally when my other birds make noise and occasionally eating. Her vent is quite dirty and her droppings are black. She looks like she struggles to poop because whenever she does, she seems very strained and picks at...

I have had many budgies before but have never run into something like this. She used to be housed with another budgie. One male. She was a partner with...

    Lily hasn't been doing very well recently ever since she got a damaged claw on her a few days ago probably from a fight with another female, the front left one on her left foot to be exact. She was weak and wouldn't use her left foot to grip onto sticks very often but she could use her left leg...
