  1. Last week
  2. My females are also in the same nest. The eggs seem to be fertile and theres no conflict.
  3. I have been giving my budgies soaked grain for a few years but they appear to be very fat. I use wheat, rye and barley. How much should I give per bird and how often.
  4. Earlier
  5. I got my new budgie yesterday from a pet store and I'm wondering if when I should let it roam around my room? (My room is small and is safe.) What I've heard people say is if a single budgie just sits in its cage all day (what my budgie has been currently doing) they will get depressed so should I let it out? Or do I wait until it has fully gained my trust?

  7. My budgie has a very noticeable vent. Was worried maybe impacted...about4 days now, but eating, chirping etc, doesn't look sick but can pant a lot at times. How long can she be "pregnant" before actually laying?
  8. Dear Forum Members, I'm hoping someone may be able to assist me. My budgie has blood on the top of his head, which I have a suspicion may be because of mites. I have been applying some Anti-Parasite (Ivermectine 10ug)drops behind his head in the past which has seemed to work, except this time it doesn't. I thoroughly clean his cage every week so I'm a little sceptical it is mites, however I read these drops treat a number of different mite and worm problems so I use them. I only have one single budgie. He's not his usual active self, doesn't fly well, pants for breath, and looks "old". He is around 10 years old, so he is I guess an old age pensioner as budgies go, though I need my little mate around as long as I can have him. Does anyone have any tips on what I could do? regards, Peter
  9. My young male budgie wants to get in the nesting box he got in once and scattered the eggs so I put him in a different cage. I let them out together but the hen goes back afte a few seconds am I doing the right thing she is sitting on 4 eggs
  10. If the eyes are red, your bird is an opaline fallow.
  11. Sorry had trouble editing. Photos it put on if a blue bird are not mine. Here is photos it sparkes
  12. I’ve had my budgie about 13 months now. When I bought him he had an eye much smaller that the other and it seems to bother him. I took him to an avian vet who gave him a full checkup and said he was healthy and unless we wanted surgery (not recommended) then we just had to watch him. His weight has been consistent at 35g give or take 1g and he seems happy enough. Except he often scratches around this eye and removes a few feathers that sort of then Matt together over his eye. Any ideas what I may be able to do to help. Zinc cream? Sudoceam? I haven’t touched it for months but he doesn’t seem to leave it alone.
  13. My budgie sneezes like u have no idea.... he's acting normal but so much snot or something shoots out his nose..... is that okay there is no colour it's just wet and gross 🤢
  14. Can anyone help. I have a new out of the box chick in a aviary with 12 other birds and 1 keeps picking on it . Any suggestions please
  15. I'm looking for some advice about how to deal with some behaviour. I have two 9 week old budgies who I hand reared from three weeks of age. At the moment they are chewing EVERYTHING so I assume it's a normal behaviour. My problem is they are also chewing me which is now starting to hurt badly enough that I can't ignore it. This is not a fear based thing as they are happy being handled (and one who is older and spent a week with me without a sibling and is quite affectionate). It's mostly happening while they are playing/free flying about the room. I am also trying to give them as much positive attention as I can when they are not chewing on me but it's gotten to the point that we are having more negative interactions that positive (as I have to shoo them away). Really hoping for some advice because I love these guys but I have work to do, and can't keep spending half my day shooing them away because they are hurting me!
  16. Hi We had a clutch of 5 eggs, two hatched, one cracked (don't ask) and two still aren't hatched after a week or two. Should the unhatched eggs be left to hatch, will they hatch later? Ta
  17. i just want to learn some champion techniques of paring and taking breed form budgrigars which works best without wasting time and results 100 percent breeding results
  18. Any breeding expectation charts for whitecaps
  19. 17 rooms for birds would be nice 😄 I almost finished my house renovation, though. There were drafts so I had to install new UPVC windows - anyone has those?
  20. Hi All, I bought my a male budgie from a pet store and he appears to have a feather problem, behind his neck and on the vent "butt" where there is no feather "bold" and the feather on his body looks very thin i can feel the meat/bones when i touch his head or belly and the weird thing that his size looks very small and short tail and the bars on his head still there but his eye has a clear grey iris, something like it's old but still small in size, so i'm not sure can you please help me?
  21. Hello there, My male show budgie rapidly opens and closes his mouth quite frequently. There is no associated clicking, grinding or heavy breathing that I can detect. He eats and drinks normally and seems to pass regular and normal droppings. He lives with 3 other budgies and they all seem to get along. He gets a good amount of exercise and out of cage time. Should I be concerned?
  22. I have a budgie who was diagnosed with testicular cancer about 18 months ago. He has been having a hormone implant to shrink rather tumor every 6 months appr. His cere eventually turns bright blue again,when it starts to go brown again we go back to the vet. Today i had another budgie xrayed and vet found a mass that looks lounge it could be cancer as well. They gave him the hormone injection this time and will see how he is in 2 weeks and assess him again. It is very common in budgies apparently. I'm very sorry for the loss of your baby it would have been such a heartbreaking decision to make but you did the right thing not letting him suffer anymore. No doubt i will have to make this rescission one day which I'm dreading.
  23. Hi guys! My budgie cooper is 8 months old and over the past two weeks we've noticed that his cere has got this dry flaky skin on it. Does this look abnormal? He was on a seed only diet but we are currently transitioning to pellets. His behaviour has been completely normal and he hasn't been scratching his beak, but has been scratching his head on the bars of his cage as he's at the end of a moult. If you guys need any more info please let me know!
