  1. Very nice cage, all your budgies are beautiful .
  2. Sounds like you are off to a great start. Ah, where would we be without millet ....Very cute video too by the way!
  3. Millet seed (or sometimes it's called millet spray) is a treat given to budgies, and other birds awsell . It looks like this *Click Here* I buy it from pet/bird shops or sometimes from the supermarket.
  4. 1. what do i use to line the bottom of the cage? I use newspaper. 2. what kind of food can they eat? i'm getting 2 babies There is quite a range of food available for budgies, as apart of their everyday diet and for occasional treats. I give my budgies daily: seed, fresh veg and water and once a week either a piece of millet, arrowroot biscuit, sunflower seeds or honey seed stick. For more info on food check out the FAQ's. 3. is buying in bulk better? for 2 budgies? Refering to seed? For just two budgies I don't think you would need to buy in bulk. When I just had the two budgies a 2kg box would last a couple of weeks and that was changing the seed daily. 4. do they really need to have coal? my friend told me they need it to digest properly Sorry, can't help you out on this one. 5. what is cuttlebone? Cuttlebone is a source of calcium, but I find my budgies prefer to play with it and chew it up rather than 'eat' it. 6. do their wings really need to be clipped? They don't need their wings clipped, but their are advantages to it (as well as disadvantages). It really is a personally choice. Definitely worth weighing up the pro's and con's before deciding. And if you do decide to get their wings clipped, make sure it is done by someone with both the knowledge and experience on how to do it properly, such as a vet. 7. how often should the cage be cleaned? I do 'daily cleaning' which involves removing the veggies, changing water and seed, clean my cage once a week and every month I do a thorough clean out were everything gets a good scrub. 8. if i let them fly around the house, will they come back to the cage? If you work on taming them (i.e. getting them to 'step up' onto your hand), it might make getting them back into their cage an easier task. Though if you let them out to fly around, I would assume that eventually they would return for food, water or to roost. But perhaps start off small and only allow them to fly in one enclosed room. I hope that helped, I answered to the best of my knowledge and from personal experience with my budgies .
  5. The poor little thing . I agree with the others, the budgie needs to see a vet quick smart.
  6. Hi and welcome to you and your gorgeous budgies. Well done on the rescue, I am sure they are much happier in their new home .
  7. They're all gorgeous Lib, so hard to choose a favourite!!
  8. Hi and welcome to you and Trilby . She is a very pretty little girl.

    They are gorgeous, I'm glad Elvis is settling in well .
  13. Hi and welcome, I'm very sorry for your loss. Little one.
  14. They are gorgeous little budgies, best of luck with taming them. NO MILLET SEED FOR 2 WEEKS?! My bubs would cause a riot if they didn't get their weekly millet seed treat (and I found it very effective as a "secret weapon" too :hap: )
  15. I'm glad you had a wonderful time at the wedding. And I hope you get better soon .
  16. Fantastic photos Feathers! I love the meerkats, they are such cute little creatures. I remember in year 8 we went on a school excursion to the Melbourne Zoo and they had baby meerkats, serious- factor there.
  17. Pretty. Biggest hugs for you Elly on this sad day, you and Pretty will be in my thoughts :angel1: .
  18. Gorgeous budgies, Cora especially is a lovely colour . Looking forward to seeing some other pics .
  19. Hi and welcome to the forum . You budgie is definitely a cutie and with a bit of time and lots of TLC he'll come out of his shell .
  20. I'm so sorry Elly, even though I wasn't a member when Pretty passed away either, it is quite plain to see how very much you love him. *Hugs* Fly free Pretty :angel1: .

    "NEAT !" ... I LOVE YOU ! OMG ... I do so love you ! Just for the French Crullers alone ... oh man ! YIPPIE ! I think NickNack just fainted in sheer pleasure....I heard the "Homer Simpson Drool" and resulting thud all the way down here in Oz. GET UP NICKNACK!!!.....Or we'll all eat your cakes.
  22. I'm so glad that your day was much better, and that even though no apologies were given that everyone was big enough to say that they had been in the wrong, that generally helps alot. Sounds like you had a very interesting day too. Get a good nights sleep and have a great time at your brothers wedding! :hap: (P.S I hope you can get the smell out of your things!)
