About 2 weeks ago a fox knocked over my hospital cage which had a a non flight, 1 legged budgie in it and her carer.
The carer flew away and I assumed he would not be seen again.
Today a lady found my boy, he was 7 kilometers from my house. I went and I bought him home, checked him and put him in a cage with food and water.
He immediately ate and drank and chirped at his friend.
I have noticed he has been sleeping a lot (in between eating and drinking). Is that normal? How long before he regains his strength and is back to normal?

The purpose of this forum is to promote the BEST PRACTICES in the care of budgies for their optimal Health and Well-Being
Locating an Avian Veterinarian

Anytime your budgies' cage is outdoors, it should be supervised at all times.


Is the male "carer" budgie back in with the disabled female budgie now?

When you have mixed genders, it is very important to do everything necessary to prevent breeding.
Budgies are much healthier and happier when they are never bred.
In your case, with the female being disabled, it is especially important you do everything necessary to prevent breeding.
