    Is My Female Budgie Upset?

    There is a distinct way they chirp when they are angry. There is one loud chirp as if its calling out 'hello anybody around' and its kinda ringy on the ears. They make it when hear other budgies chirp or a similar sound. Also there is an angry chirp that is more sounding like they are sounding the letter 'ch' over and over. They make that sound also when they don't want to be touched. Mine make it when they are feeling cocky or naughty. I love to mimic it back at them and they fly angrily over my head.

    Weirdo Burb

    So my female budgie often sleeps like this. I cannot imagine how this could be classified as comfortable. As you can see from the photos she climbes to the ceiling of the cage and spreads her legs attaching one to the side of the cage and one to the ceiling. So bizarre! She doesn't look sick, chirps, flirts with it's mate, eats, flies as usual, cleans it's feathers daily, breathes normally, poops normally. There also is no lump on the tummy to indicate that she is trying but cannot lay eggs. Pray for my budgie, I guess there is nothing wrong with her she is just a weirdo 😂

    Taming 2 Budgies At Once?

    HELP BUDGIES NOT STEPPING UP AFTER SO LONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i spent a lot of time trying to tame my two budgies and they steps up but after they just run away. They sometimes perch on my hand but gets off after twelve seconds. when i try to make them perch again they just run around the cage and just hiding in there. i need some help.😕
  7. Hi, so I'm considering getting a budgie soon, but I have a few questions before I do: Can you keep 2 male budgies together in a cage? If you bring both of them home on the same day, from the same place, do you still have to quarantine one? What's a good cage brand and size? In a typical week, what should I feed my budgie? What type of perches, in your opinion, are best? How can I effectively tame my first budgie? If anyone has answers to these questions, or other advice, please reply! Thank you so much!!

    Itchy Budgies

    hello fellow budgie lovers my two budgies sky and kiwi seems to be very itchy these days and scratch their head anywhere they can find;the bars, the perches, their toys, any thing! is this normal for my fluffies and, if not, how do i stop it?
  9. Hello! I recently bought a new budgie, Beaker, to keep my one budgie, Nemo, company after his friend died a year ago. After an adjustment period they have become best buddies. My question is that after Beaker came into his life Nemo went into a big molt and sleeps more often than he used to. He does eat and drink and is chatty and active while awake. Was the big molt and sleeping more often because of the introduction of the new bird? Thanks for your thoughts and advice!

  11. hi I have a very broody pair of budgies, and they both started their process twice in a row without a nesting box, she had eggs and was ready to drop, so I then decided to accommodate their needs for the first time, they had 4 successful babies. The babies hadn't quite fledged when my cock started pushing on the hen again, I didn't want another batch as the first was unexpected. but I couldn't remove the cock as he was still feeding his hen and babies. I admit I attempted to remove him, but he was not happy at all, so decided to put him back in . once the babies left the nest , I then had 6 budgies in one flight cage and had to buy a second cage for the 4 young as the hen was still grouchy and was spiteful to her babies. Then the cock starts trying again straight away with his mate and again was successful, but I couldn't separate the pair as I couldn't have a 3rd cage. so again I now have a second batch of only 3 chicks this time, they are 22 days old atm. I did this time have to remove the breeding cock , as he is still insisting on mating with her, ive had no choice this time, ive had to borrow a small cage for him only tempariliy . My hen is looking after her 3 new chicks very well on her own. What I really want is all hens in one cage and cocks in the other. I want to separate the sexes as I also worry of in breeding between the four 5month old siblings. I cant rule anything out at this point. since they could be as broody as their parents. I don't want the breeding pair to mate again, as it will probably kill her, twice in a row is not ideal. and would like to know if at this point can I put my two 5mth old hens in with mum and her chicks? Is it safe to? and have the 2young cocks and dad in the other cage?? Will mum be okay with her 2 previous clutch hens whilst she has 22 day old chicks in her nest?

    Hello, All

    I'm a former U.S. champion breeder/exhibitor (along with and due in no small part to my late wife) who's getting back into the hobby after a 20-year lay-off. Some things have changed but a lot is coming back to me quickly. Found BBC through a Google search on goldenface budgies. There's no "official" U.S. abbreviation for that mutation so I'm using GF. Do you folks have nomenclature for that type? I presently have a "stud" of 7 birds (two 6-7 month-old cocks and five really young hens) with one pair (GFS cock + CnGy hen) up at the moment and awaiting a DG hen to come into condition before putting her with a GG cock. I hope I'm not pushing them too much. I'm also casting about for more cocks as my remaining hens are all cobalts of one type or another and I love blue-series birds. While I have many contacts here is the States, I feel it never hurts to be in contact with others with whom I share the hobby.
  13. I got my Brynleigh back in June of 2018 from Petco and I’ve always wondered what type of budgie (s)he is. I’m a first time budgie owner.... I’m just gonna post a bunch of pics with different lighting. A few from June and most from the last few days

    Pet Shop Trying To Sell "pink" Budgies

    I learned the hard way not to count you chicks before they hatch. I had a red budgie, but she was actually sick with improper circulation, causing her feathers to be red. She, unfortunetly, died.

    Budgie Egg Not Hatching

  17. Hi All, I am new to the forum. we have been having budgies for a year. (1 male and 3 females I guess). This year One of the female has laid 3 times but the eggs were not hatched. The female budgies doesn't seem to incubate in the nesting box all the time. I separated the pair from other birds last time but still no hatching. Can anyone help me with this issue. Thanks, Jay
  18. my budgies let me touch them, but only their bodies.

    Still hurting

    i think you should first place your hand outside the cage and let your budgie get used to ur hand. if its puffed up its usually a good sign. budgies puff up when they are relaxed or sleepy.

    Poor budgies. Being dyed. How would you feel like if you had paint on you and you cant get it off, with people telling other people how you are born pink.

    Female Budgie Attacking Male Budgie

    i think you should make her spend more time with the male budgie outside the cage and hopefully she should stop pestering him.

    My Budgie Calypso Is Shy

    I can get him to sit on my finger I can pay him but he’s not talkative I did what I was supposed to. I let him settle in and at the start he was quite and didn’t object to being patted and sitting on my finger he was fine with. Calypso is only squawking when he hear something on my phone and even then it sound like he’s horrified and letting out an alarm or “lord help me” kind of continuous never changing call. I’ve tried to teach him to say hello and I don’t expect him to speak back yet because I’ve only had him for about three weeks and four days. Is there something I’m doing wrong? Why does he hate me, and refuse to hop onto my finger when he’s gotten himself stuck behind my bed on my fan behind and in my bin? Is he just antisocial should I give up and get him a friend?
