  1. Hi Everyone, Hoping you can help me please. My budgie has been heavily moulting recently, he has many new pin feathers and is feathered all over, no bare patches. But today we noticed that he has had two new tail feathers come through which are very thick stiff quill feathers, with no barbs on them at all. They're just bare quills. They have grown very quickly. Is he okay? What should we do? I have another budgie who lives with him, sharing a cage, both males. The other budgie is fine. They have a good diet, includes Trill budgie seed, they regularly have apple, millet sprays, and peppermint tree leaves, with occasional parsley, basil, rocket and lettuce leaves from the garden. Hope someone can help shed some light on this, Ive never seen or heard of this happening before! Thanks in advance!! Sue

    B.j's Step By Step To Easy Bird Bonding

    I have had one budgie for eight months now, Jimmy, which we tamed so well that he's like a little dog now, follows me around the house, flies to me as soon as I call him, he's a lovely little soul! But Ive started having to work out of the house a lot, and I could see he was getting lonely being left along all day. So this week we got another little baby budgie, he's only a week out of the nest, Rico, and we have clipped his wings. I didn't follow the quarantine for putting them in another cage or anything like that (simply because i didn't have another cage, nor enough room for one). And little Rico and Jimmy seem to get along really well, and Rico has just immediately tamed, he jumps onto my hand, and comes out of the cage with Jimmy no problems. I love how affectionate Jimmy is, and I was really worried that he might lose that, but he seems to be just the same as always, and because he is so tame, Rico is just following his lead and shows no fear. Both let me kiss them on their bellies, pat them and hold them together. Jimmy seems a little jealous when I grab Rico tho, so Im making sure I shower him in attention and love too. Will Jimmy still continue to be as bonded to us, or can I expect things to go backwards from here?
