  1. Introduction , And Worried About Tail Feathers

    Hi there, I'm a budgie owner, not a breeder. I didn't see that the site was for breeders until I finished registering. Hope it's okay. We had an Australian budgie first a few years ago, and now we have an English budgie called Toast. The reason I came here is that something weird has happened to his bum/tail feathers. They're all splayed out, and there may be a blood stain, though he won't let us look. Any ideas? Should we be concerned, or do we just let it heal. Many thanks.
  2. I had setup my breeding pair about 2 weeks ago and everything was looking fine they started mating in 3 day's and the female spends most of the time in the nest box. but recently i have noticed that the female is plucking her vent feathers, she isnt showing any signs of egg binding and is spending 2/3 of the day in the nestbox her poop is huge just like usual and isnt watery or abnormal , she doesnt sit on the floor I have breed budgies before and know what im doing i just find this strange because my last breeding pair layed fertile egg's 5 day's after mating
  3. Hey all, I just have a question because I am a little bit concerned about my budgie. I purchased him almost 3 months ago, he was around 8 weeks old at the time. We went to a renown bird breeder and asked the man to clip his wings for us. He clipped both wings and I noticed he was a little rough when he did it and I don't think the scissors were very sharp, I was a little scared because when I got my first budgie they only clipped one side of his wing and it was not as close as this man had done. A few weeks ago the feathers started growning back and I was relieved, however now my budgie keeps pulling the same ones (the primary flight feathers right on the end) out everytime they reach a certain length, he has done it 3 times now and I have observed that they have blood on the tip and look a bit damaged. Does anyone know what could be wrong or is this normal? Thanks in advance
