    Wings Flapping Madly While Sitting On Perch

    i have changed the cage from the big to small and then back to the big. Once he got into the big cage that he used to, he started to flaps his wings madly. I think it was sign of excitement, as he was really !! happy to get back into his cage

    Male Or Female ....kiwibudgie

    Thank you Nadene !!!! I always thought it is a boy !!! but this small spot between nostrils that appears only now at 9 weeks confused me. I don't think it is white... it is more bluish that whitish

    Male Or Female ....kiwibudgie

    When I bought him the cere was all pink, with no doubt that it is a male. At what age it started to change ? At 9 weeks is it too early to say ?
  7. Hello, My budgie now is about 9+ weeks, and I think his (i thought initially that it is he) started to change a little bit. I think it is a little more blueish between nostrils. Very difficult to understand if it is blue ot white - if it is blue it is very light. Before there was nothing white or blue. At what age the cere starts to change. I will put the picture to show. I am looking at him all the time but can't understand if it is blue or white more blueish than whitish http://s797.photobuc...html?state=copy http://s797.photobucket.com/user/kgueneau/media/cado3_zps3283572c.jpg.html?state=replace

    Clip Or Not To Clip Wings

    I have clipped in the beginning, but will not do it again when flights grows back. In any case if he doesn't want to stay on your finger he is flying or jumping away. But then he is going to jump and jump on the floor... It is a little bit sad to watch him jumping instead of flying. And I have noticed that he doesn't enjoy off cage time

    Cotton Wreath In Cage

    Hello I have bought a cotton wreath (see below) and put it in the cage. Cado loved it immediately and spent all the time on the top of the wreath. He didn't move from it. Today I decided to remove it from the cage and he seems to be more active I think (or it can be just my idea) but he started to play a little with another toy and flied around more than before. Should I leave it in the cage or remove it ? Will he be depressed if i remove it ? http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=13368&prodid=22649&catid=5 thank you

    Cado - Update

    Hello, cado is eating and drinking, chirping a little bit, especially when I put water sound music, but he still is very quiet. The most of the day he is sitting on the cotton wreath. He is not touching veggies or fruits or cuttlebone. He still jump on my hand when there is millet on it but never if nothing. I know that I am asking the same thing but it is already more than one week passed and the progress is small. Maybe I am mistaken ? The only thing when I touch his beck and tummy I think he likes it. He close his eyes.... again is it per pleasure or per scary ? I'm also worried that I've started training her too soon - I started pretty much the day after he arrived because he was hand fed. Should I continue now, or just stop everything ? Should I let him millet from my hand ? thank you

    Wings Flapping Madly While Sitting On Perch

    Oh . Cado is doing it also but I thought it is a form of excitement . Usually it's after he ate and I am talking to him.

    Cado - Update

    Hello A week already passed since Cado has being with us. I think he's better now. He starts to vocalize. He's less afraid and when the cage is open he goes sometimes outside of the cage. I have few questions: 1. He is sitting on my hand only if there is a millet. Then he jump and don't want to leave. But never if nothing. Is it because I press him since the beginning ? I could not put off my hands during 72 first hours ? I didn't force him but suggested . What can I do now ? How to make him sit to my hand and understand Up command 2. He seems do not enjoy cage off time. Is it evaluate he's clipped wings ? Or it us new for him ? He just flies a little and then back on top on the cage. And doesn't move then 3. He usually sit on top if the cotton wrest highest place in the cage Thank you very much !!!!
