2 Young Budgie Males - About 9 Months Old

Recommended Posts

Hi. Have 2 young male budgies, since Nov '15 or so. Seem very healthy, but they lose lots of little feathers daily, which fall to the surrounding floor.

We vacuum up daily. They chirp etc. a lot, very active. We let them fly out of their 'flight cage', about

2 times a week, in a 'safe room' for them. They will not get on our finger, altho we've tried very often, and we also talk to them, but they never mimic our words or try to talk. They just chirp amongst each other.

They eat a good diet of a healthy bird mix I purchase at PetSmart and daily, we give them fresh vegetables that we've learned they love, such as broccoli, celery leaves, carrot sticks, strawberries, small sections of tangerines, and occasionally apples. They seem to love their fresh produce. So - 2 questions please.

1). Why are they losing SO MANY feathers, and will it ever stop? Can't be constantly molting.

2). Any suggestions on helping to get them to finally like us, get on our finger, sit on our shoulder, etc? Or get them to talk? Hope I get some replies. Thanks!
