    when i first got my budgies, they loved me. they would flap about in there cage when i got home, they would sit on my shoulder, they would give me kisses, they would sit on my hand, they would talk to me and they just liked me. a couple weeks ago when i got home from school, i went to go let them out of there cage so they could have a fly and so i could spend time with them but they were terrified of me. they won't let me touch them, they stop chirping when i walk in my room, they bite me...

    The budgie dad male is pecking on the baby budgie that is also a male, but is his baby. The dad budgie was not mean to him just until the baby budgie started to have a little of blue in his nose. The female the more likes the dad male, but she wants to feed her baby, but the male chases the baby budgie. I put the dad in a different cage, but I want them to be as how they used to. What can I do for the dad budgie to love his son again. Sorry if I write in a wrong way.

    After a couple of years trying to breed white based blues, I have finally breed 2 of them, as well as four more on the way! I try not to buy birds to breed, as to add a bit of a challenge, and majority of my aviary is yellow based of some form, making it incredibly difficult to get my first white based blue birds! But I did it!
