    Hello everyone, my budgie is not feeling well. Today my budgie was wet because he took a bath and he fell down from a height of 1 meter (3.3 feet). I do not know if he landed on his feet or not, but since then he can not stand anymore. Whenever I try to put my budgie on his feet, he tilts...

    So today I was out with a friend and when I got picked up my mom told me she had heard some flapping coming from the cage where my two boys are. I was told when she got to the cage she found Cookie hunched on the cage floor. So she and my brother picked him up from where he was and paced him on...

    Hello! Hope you’re well! I have a 6-month-old budgie, Peetrie. His gender is unknown but we suspect he’s a male. He’s apart of a flock of seven; three other budgies, and three cockatiels. They do pick on him from time to time but I haven’t seen them done actual harm to him. We’ve raised him...

    My budgie has been vomiting for a few months already, we have been giving her medicine but it doesn't really help much. Its poop is normal and it still eats regularly. The thing it vomits is like yellow seeds but different from the seeds we give it. It usually just swing its head and the 'seeds'...

    Two days ago, I found that my budgie is breathing really hard and fast. Its poop look normal and it still eats but its breathing rate really worries me. It used to be a a very healthy budgie, like it would fly around the house and sing but it stopped doing so after it got sick. Its eyes looked...

    I just brought a new budgie on Tuesday, He's a baby(7 weeks old). Once I had put him in his new cage I noticed he was opening his beak a little. I wasn't sure if this was due to stress or not so I left him. It's now Friday, he's been eating, chirping, flying and sitting on our fingers. He...

    Hi, I got a new female budgie today, she's less than 4 months old not sure about her exact age. Earlier today she was acting fine, on our ride home, I noticed that her droppings inside her travel box were yellow-ish and with a very mushy texture. I put her in her cage and she was fine. This...

    Recently, my one of my budgies have passed away. I haven't seen any health or activity changes in my other bird, Choco. I still don't know if he understands what happened. Here are some of the questions I have: 1) If Choco didn't know and finds out, will he act any different? If so, should I be...
  10. Budgie Behavior
    Hi everyone! New to group. My workplace has a budgie since it's my bosses and they spend almost all their time here rather than home. She's an absolute sweetheart, but often likes men over women (I'm a woman, but slowly earning her trust). I've noticed this week that her behaviour has changed a...

    Hi! I'd really appreciate some help as I'm feeling really worried. :( My female budgie (Zuzu) is very sick, she bobs her tail and had a big chunk of poop stuck to her vent - which has now fallen off. It seems that her poop is the normal shape and colour, but on the newspaper there is a patch of...

    Species: Parakeet/Budgerigar Age: ~9 months I have noticed, about 2 months ago, that my budgie had started to grow crust on the beak. I was unsure if this was normal, as I had read that during breeding season the ceres of females usually get crusty. However, I am still unsure of the sex of the...

    I haven't used this site before but sorry if I am posting in the wrong section but I really need your help. My budgie is about 5-6 years old and she's been quite happy but I recently noticed she squats on her perch and sits really weirdly like almost hunched back and has runny droppings. I could...

    OK things: Eats regularly(diet of seeds and occasional mullet spray or treat), VERY active, chirps regularly, alert, black/dark green and white poos, and playful. Im not sure things: Clings to top of cage a lot to sleep there(though she has fallen in the past no injuries thankfully), sneezes...

    So, Lola just regurgitated two big chunks of some sort of white solid with seeds stuck in it. One of my other birds is a bit of a compulsive regurgitator, and this looks totally different. I'd say the white stuff is almost the texture of mounting putty, not liquid at all. Any ideas? Do grains...

    My female budgie Leo appears to start moulting whenever we get back from a holiday (once a year). For her this involves an hours car journey to our grandparents where he spends his time with another budgie, but is not allowed out of his cage as the grandparents are quite elderly and it may not...

    Joey was completely fine this morning until around 2pm when he was in his cage and I noticed him eating something which he didn't seem to like and spat it out. A few hours later, he was outside his cage near me, and started 'regurgitating' his seeds and then flicking his head and spitting seeds...
