He actually doesn't puff up that much anymore. He's also very active, and he does get into fights. A lot.I don't see any dirty feathers but I do see what appear to be a few pin feathers which are new feathers that are still in the keratin sheath, they will eventually open and look like the other feathers. The point on the cere with the blood spot looks like he may have been bitten by the other bird, do they fight? Birds will fluff up slightly when resting or sleeping and that is normal but if he is puffed up most of the time then something is wrong.
I have two more. Snowy is the only male, also he already had that spot when we took him from the breeder. They don't fight that much anymore, and we try to control the daylight hours so they won't breed.If the budgies are fighting then they need to be separated right away.
Fighting that leads to one budgie bleeding is extremely dangerous. A budgie can easily be hurt or killed by another bird.
Is Snowy fighting with the budgie shown in the picture
Do you have more than just these two budgies?
If so, separating all the birds by gender would be best overall to help prevent breeding.
An hour later, after @FaeryBee has said that you should separate birds that fight, you say they don't fight that much anymore.He actually doesn't puff up that much anymore. He's also very active, and he does get into fights. A lot.
That does not compute in my brain. Error. Blue screen.I have two more. Snowy is the only male, also he already had that spot when we took him from the breeder. They don't fight that much anymore, and we try to control the daylight hours so they won't breed.
What happened to your fourth budgie? Besides Snowy, you had Nova, Cloudy and Winter.
I'm trying my hardest! And no, only 3 died. The other was returned as it did not adjust properly.This is no clarification at all...
A little over two weeks ago you opened a topic about new arrivals. The topic title said you had three healthy and quarantined new birds. What you write now makes me think that was a lie. Quarantine lasts at least 30 days. You now write they are all together and you only have one cage with no way to separate them. If you have only one cage, you cannot have quarantined them when you got them.
I've read your previous posts after I was very confused by what you wrote earlier in this topic. To my absolute horror, I read you had 4 (!) budgies die since you joined the forum one month ago: Spring I, Spring II and the two birds that died of breathing something toxic. You also wrote that you have returned one to the store. So in the last month you have had nine budgies, one was returned, four died and four remain. Those four fight and one might be ill. Those are awful statistics. Yet you choose not to act on the warnings you were given.
I am flabbergasted.
