  1. Yesterday
  2. I adopted two adult parakeets and two babies I woke one morning one babies was dead😔 two weeks later I found one male one female in breeding box dead and one dead in regular cage I don’t know what’s going on my first time with birds
  3. Last week
  4. I’m trying to learn fast! I recently bought a house that came with 40+ budgies! I keep large parrots and have limited with these tiny twitterers. I have LOTS of questions so hopefully I don’t send you crazy. I live in Collector NSW.
  5. Hi there, I have got budgies that I am wanting to breed. I currently have 2 female in a cage with 4 males 1 of which have paired up and then other cage with 1 female and 1 male which I am trying to bond. I have breeding boxes in the cage but they dont seem too breed. Does anyone have any tips? Thankyou
  6. Is this a greywing, clearwing or full body color greywing? Thank you :)
  7. So my dad found a female budgie outside when he was at work. She was really friendly but was so dirty. She has 2 broken nails and smells like a flavoured oily parfume that does not come off. She is acting like sparrow, kinda tweetinf like them and flies really harsh, does really fast turns, flies really fast, always sits on our heads and is 100% accurate when trying to land, also her voice sounds like she is sick but ahe ate tons of food and drank tons of water. My guess is that she had been at outside for a while so she had to adapt. We already have a male budgie and he is really interested in her but she might have parasytes or be sick so it worries me. My dad will definetely wont listen to me and tell that there is no veteranians here and will even yell at me sayinf that what am i? An expert now? So i wanted ro ask help from forums and im here, we are tryinf to find her owner and also want to keep her healthy. How am i going to clean her, she starts trembling when i wet her so it scares me and she does not want to bathe when we put a bowl or somethinf like that. Also forgot to mention that it had been snowy outside for like 3 days before we found her.
  8. I have a little night light for mine. I was reading these posts too as I just joined the forum and realised they are from 2010. A while ago now [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. I purchase this cage to keep 2-3 pastal Budgies, is it alright, or will a metal cage be better. I can always get another cage if it's not right.
  10. hey everybody! does anybody know what time is best for breeding budgies in Australia?
  11. I put blue light for night in my aviary
  12. Hello all, I have had my two Club/English budgies for 3 weeks now. They’re very interested in each other, regurgitating food to each other and preening each other. They’re located in a larger aviary with no other birds. I have been putting millet next to the hole of the breeding box which has made the budgies come close to the box, but they haven’t gone in the box yet. Both budgies Ceres are the right colour for breeding. Does anyone have any other tips that I can use to get the budgies to go into the box ? Does anyone know when budgie breeding season is in Australia ? Thanks 👍🏼

  15. Hey guys i was wondering if you could tell me my bird's Sex too
  16. All my Budgies, Cockatiels, Conures, Gouldian Finches, Topknot Doves, Pigeons, Moustache Parrot, Princess Parrot, Bleeding Heart Dove, Jap Quail, King Quail, Masked Parrots, Peachface etc. all survive on Trill Budgerigar 10 kg mix. It contains shell grit as well. The indoor budgies get the same mix. I supplement this with pears, (they love them) and oranges sliced in half. Some are as old as 10 years and still doing fine. In regards to sunflower, use only striped sunflower, not the black. The black has too high a fat content and can prove fatal with excessive use.
  17. Hi, my name is Achraf and this is my friend Ruby. I've had it for a while now and i'm pretty positive it's over a year old (the bird's assumed age). Anyways i was wondering if it's a Male or a Female budgie since i'm interested in breeding it and have cute babies. Please let me know if you need more pictures or informations about it.
  18. Male. Nice bird, By The Way
  19. Hello! I have a 10 year old male parakeet that is showing signs of illness. He is eating and drinking more than normal and he appears to have a mass/growth on his belly as the feathers near his vent are starting to part considerably. He is also showing mild signs of breathing heavy, not in the tail bobbing way though. I was told on another forum, acutally a FB group, that his poop wasn't normal, he has a natural pellet only diet. So I was told to give him Braggs ACV for five days with a 1mL to 100mL ratio (he's on his third day). Based on the research I've done, I have come to the conclusion that he either has a tumor or a liver disorder (hoping its the latter and I bought Lily of the Desert Aloe Detox 80, arriving Friday). I live in a very rural area and have no access to an avain vet so trying to work this out on my own with natural remedies. I've also been administrating small quantities of milk thistle and dandelion root sprinkled on his food. Can anyone please confirm my suspicions and any tips (short of taking him to a vet which I am unable) would be greatly appreciated. He's still somewhat vocal and playing a bit but you can tell whatever is wrong with him is affecting his mood and usual spunky personality. Thanks so much!
  20. why would a mother budgie kill a healthy baby which was only weeks from leaving the nest
  21. hi everyone, I have had my baby for three years now. I’m unsure if it’s a boy or girl. The cere has stayed the same colour since it was young. No one seems to be sure if it’s a boy or gir. Please help
  22. Hi both of my new Budgies seem to be itchy and Lemon's beaks seems very crusty and doesn't look okay, could these be mites? Am planning on thoroughly cleaning their cage and toys as soon as they feel more settled 😊
  23. Hi just bright home a 6-7 week old Parakeet. Surprised he went on my finger. Stayed on me most of the day. back in cage sleeping. Showed it Food it doesn’t want to eat. Sleeping on purch - pooping okay but shows no interest in eating. Worried. 😢
  24. So my babies have all hatched. I have not put anything in the box for nesting and now there is gravel type stuff in the box. I’m guessing it’s poop but don’t really know? do I clean it out?
  25. G'day. I'm new to the World of Budgies. I got six two weeks ago. I have revamped an old Cocky cage and inserted three Boxes. Two looked quite happy with each other and I think they may have had a little liaison. George (girl) has been interested in one of the boxes. She has pecked at the opening and gone halfway in. Is it the case I may be a Grand Pappy???
  26. My 3 parakeets sunbathing. Cream puff, blue and stormy girl. They love there water.
  27. Yeah it can be, although if you vacuum every day and make sure you clean out the poo in the cage every evening, it should be pretty fine.
