Good morning guys!
I'm back with my new baby boy, Aero! He's an adorable little thing but I'm a bit worried about him. See, his feathers are my first worry, they are so depreciated, even for moulting budgies (which I believe he is going through his baby moult).
He also has a bald patch on his tummy, which I believe is from being in with babies that were being hand reared. He ended up being the 'dad', feeding them and teaching them to perch and was apparently constantly tormented by them for food and attention, like a parent bird.
My other worry, is his poos. They were super funny yesterday but now they are massive and dark, but not black!
He also eats, REALLY loud, but I don't know if that's just him or something up with his beak. He also stumbles a LOT over his little feet but can hover in mid-air flying.
He's completely hand raised, so he's more comfortable with me than in his cage. He's eating seed, millet, and a couple pellets (which he was on originally). And he's bathed in my hand under the tap! Yay! He's already beak tapping and making eye contact and wanting to constantly be with me.
I'm just watching him close as there was what I suspect to be French Moult and mites in another cage at the breeders.
I do know the drill with new budgies, in cage, partly covered move slowly and don't rush things, but he is so uncomfortable in his cage currently that he starts to shake and wheeze. Where as out, he's perfectly happy.
Thank you for all your advice,
