Hello!

Im new to the forum, my name is Sofia, originally from Argentina, now I live in sunny FL.

I have 2 pet parakeets, Loui and Lizzie, who are in love with each other.

I also have 2 dogs, cocker spaniel Maggie, and Pointer Annie, they all get along great :hap:

I'll share some pics as soon as I figure out how to post.

Glad to see you here it's get getting new faces (so to speak) and getting to the story of budgies all over the world.

 

How did loui hurt his wing? or did that happen before you got him.

Thanks guys!!

 

Loui hurt his wing before I got him, the pet store owner thinks his mom stepped on his wing as a baby, but I don't know how it happened.

It doesn't stop him from running around his cage though, and he jumps high, but I have to watch him at jumping because he gets excited but he isn't the best at landing, :hap:

He's a very happy bird, he doesn't seem to know he can't fly. He'll even strech his good wing and try to do it.

He's around 4 yr old. He's the sweetest little gentleman. Lizzy is the opposite, she's the wild child, always getting into everything, and she can have her temper too. :wub:

 

They've tried to breed several time, Lizzy even lays eggs, but they never produce babies, I don't know if it's because of Loui's wing, or something else. I just put a nesting box in their cage again (I put it a few months ago, she laid eggs, but no babies) . So we'll see what happens, she will usually lay them on the bottom of the cage, and even make a little nest under the newspaper. The last couple of times she hasn't laid on the eggs though. She doesn't seem to have as much interest as before....

Well, im rambling on... thanks for the welcome, I can't wait to hear about your parakeets/Budgies!!

Hello and welcome. I'm also new. Its really fascinating how the animals can learn to live with each other. I use to have a dog and a cat who would sleep in the same bad with each other and they would even eat from the same bowl.

Do you have a closer photo of Loui's bad wing? I've got a budgie who can't fly too. His wing tips were biten off when he was one day old.
