  1. Last week
  2. She may just be caring for the chick. She probably grabs food and then gives it to the chick, whilst caring for it.
  3. it contains a concave insert I guess that will do, Thanks you
  4. Yes, just make sure you have something to keep the chick's legs from slipping and getting splayed legs.
  5. It's possible that his wings are clipped from the breeder/shop, or they may be broken.
  6. Hey, is it okay to use this nestbox for my parakeets couple ? basically it's a cockatiel nestbox but it's the best I can find in my area concerning the quality of wood and the size, it's a bit large for a parakeet I guess but would it be a problem ?
  7. Hi all! Just last week I was moving houses and I transported my budgie Sprite in a shoebox (not the best, i know!) and i think he may have broken his toe? It’s bent back and pointing upwards and he tends to favor it yet he still uses it. I was wondering if there was anything I or a vet could do or should i just let it heal naturally?

  9. Hi I have bought new budgie,but I don't know his exact age and he cant fly.Right wing stands higher than the left.I want to know if he has a problem with the wings or he is new to fly?
  10. I have a female budgie that has one chick that is 20 days old. I was wondering if the hen should be leaving the nest more then she does. She only leaves for no longer then 5 minutes and that is at most three times a day. Thank you for any help given
  11. I purchased three budgies from a lady in my building and there two males (one blue one green) and a female (blue) and the female and the blue male are partners they love each other and the green male was alone so we purchased another female and put her in the cage with the rest of them however my other female won’t warm up to her. She either won’t let her come close to her and she fly’s away or when the new budgie is eating she’ll push her out of the way of the food. I had to separate the pairs is this going to hurt my male budgies Since they’ve been in the same cage forever together?
  12. So I’ve hit a Dilemma, I’ve got a baby budgie around the age of 5 weeks who’s mum has died and dad doesn’t like it and it hasn’t learnt to eat yet. I have no idea what to feed it or how to feed it. I don’t want to buy a formula but would like to know how to feed it and what to feed it. the internet says fruit and veg but I tried mashing some banana and holding it on a spoon and it didn’t eat it its been in a well set up cafe for about 2 days and has been getting really crabby and I’m assuming it’s because it’s hungry please help!!

  14. We had an unexpected death of our male. Our female has four chicks - should we intervene and take all or some of the chicks to feed by hand? Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated.

  17. okay I have a male olive green budgie who is about 18months (got him from a colony breeder as a baby). Before he's first moult he had quite a purplish tinge near his vent region, and still has a slight purplish tinge. I am hoping to breed with him and I was wondering if he would be a double factor violet and if I breed him with a visual violet hen, would they produce violets? Thanks for any information anyone can supply!
  18. Gday RIP or anyone else that can help , i know your post was a few years ago, hopefully you can help. Im in Sydney with the St George budgerigar society club, and as far as we are aware i am the only one with them over here or maybe anywhere but unfortunantely i am down to my last pair,, a visual grey hen that cant get to do anything and a split green cock Warren Wilson and i were speaking on the weekend and he said there was some in WA but is unaware of what happened to them. I also seen that you bred them. Where are you located? Brings me to my point do you know who may have them or know the where abouts of some where i may be able to get in touch with them. I have a standard for them also. Thanks Craig 0410116181

  23. Hello Fellow budgie keepers i am new to this forum but need some advice desperately. I have a baby just out of the nest, she is very strong and can fly around the avairy very well but the father is continually trying to groom and mate her. She only came out today and Mum has been feeding her, do I seperate the baby or do I take him out??? Please help Mel
  24. Thanks for the information, Derek. Personally, I've always disliked Facebook from the formatting perspective and difficulty of navigating the site, never mind the revelations of how it's been monetizing our personal information and making the poorly-informed and weak-willed fodder for nefarious disinformation. Between FB and Google, I almost hate to power up my laptop some days knowing that I'll be assaulted with ads and "offers" that I don't care to take up.

    Hello, All

    Bob, most of the exhibition budgerigar breeders have left this forum courtesy of Facebook. Quite sad really as it was quite the buzz some years back. Cheers
  26. this is my famous Chickweed Freeze: Chickweed ( without chemicals) millet chopped veggies ( i used lettuce) fruit juice (i use orange) put chickweed millet veg into ice cube tray. Pour juice on top of the other ingredients until covered. Freez and serve 2 budgies!
