  1. This forum is such a special place i only joined a few weeks ago and imediately felt welcomed and recieved so many answers and so much support. for the first time in my life i feel like i have somewhere i belong thankyou all. Tina
  2. why isn't my tail yellow, I want a yellow tail maybe if I eat yours mine will turn yellow.
  3. thats the size they are i took them on a mobile sorry i dan't have a digital camera so will try to borrow one and get better pics soon
  4. Visit My Website pics arnt great but can anyone tell me what type my babies are?
  5. hi all, I have spent the last week or so reading almost every post on this forum and juat wanted to ask what does putting in an abundance of food do to a budgie is it bad to do this? We have 2 birds and have a huge bowl of seed in the cage for them should I reduce this in size? thankyou Tina,Jake and Jasmine
  6. thankgod the poor older woman happened to have an angel like you there to help her. It is disgraceful and so unaustralian the way people try to sell things today.
  7. I have wonderfull news today was the last medication day and both jake and Jasmine appear to be back to normal. Jasmine has become so much more tame with all the handling she has had lately. Haven't tried fresh vege with them yet but I did crush some pellets over their seed today and both of them have had a good munch away at that and appear to quite like it. Will be buying some fresh vege for them tommorow and will try all your suggestions to see how they go fingers crossed. Thankyou all again for your advice and friendship I hope to get to know you all alot more over the years to come. Tina
  8. my birds won't touch fresh fruit or vege at all I have tried everything any suggestions?
  9. todays update, both jake and jasmine are looking much much better poo's appear normal and both are eating alot more only 2 more days of medication to go. We have also noticed that jasmine appears to be enjoying the handling that she gets now she has stopped drawing blood when she bites and only flies away every so often so looks like the medication has been good for more than one reason.
  10. is bottlebrush safe for them to eat as well or only to use as a perch?
  11. thankyou all i will continue to give the medication as the bottle says for the rest of the time as it does seem to be working.
  12. mmm... if it says on the bottle to do both I'd keep it up (the seed issue is most likely unrelated) How many days have you got left? been medicating for 3 so 2-4 days left
  13. I was only giving it in the mouth because thats what the instructions said on the bottle but i think i might stop and just put it in their water don't want to hurt my babies by being to nice. If you are medicating by mouth I wouldn't also do it by water. You might be overdosing them. If you are giving them the required dose via beak (following the instructions on the bottle), you know they ARE getting it... as opposed to via water where you never know how much they are getting. The regurgitation of seed can happen for a number of reasons. Don't worry to much but keep an eye on him just in case it happens again. I'm glad they are looking up :(Laughing out loud): I was just following the instuctions on the bottle which say to do both for 5-7 days do you think that is too much don't want to hurt them?
  14. we have been nedicating jake and jasmine for 3 days now by mouth and in their water. Tonight when i medicated jake by mouth he regurgitated some seed is this normal or should we stop medicating by mouth and just put it in his water from now on?. (the medication has done wonders for him). look forward to your advice Tina
  15. Update for today,Both jake and jasmine apear to be more chirpy today poos looking almost normal. Jake has spent almost 3 hours eating seed so i guess he is feeling better. Thankfully it looks like thanks to you all we have been able to fix the problem thankyou all and if we ever need advice again this will be the first place we come. You are all such nice people and we thankyou from the bottom of our hearts without you all we have have lost both our babies thankyou.
