  1. okay Um i dont think we have Bokchoy here in nsw. The budgies didnt touch any of their vegies at all
  2. Hello Maesie, okay I'll see if Coles has Bok Choy. Good tip about putting veggies in the same coloured dish. I have the veggies in the Green dish cos the other dishes are see through plastic ones. Thanks for ur tip and advice!
  3. I love the pictures all adorable birds! No 4 is my fave of the babies
  4. That's great what you are doing. thanks they just run away from it in the corner perch ill keep on being patience.
  5. Hello Cathrine, Thanks for your ideas ad tips they have helped muchly! Its been rianing lots laltey so i havnt been able to go outside to look for branches... Can budgies eat alfalfa? We dont have much bottle brush trees around here. I have put some lettace in cage and they are scared of it. I guess they've never have had lettace before. Poor budgies. Grevillea is great if there is no bottle brush or some leafy twigs from gum trees (always washed). Alfalfa is fine. I think the budgies would be more interested in sprouted mung beans than alfalfa because there is something to chew on. (My birds love them.) I suggest you sprout them yourself because you can do the exact quantity you need rather than waste a whole pack from the supermarket. You can buy raw mung beans at seed merchants and health food shops. Lettuce is not recommended. It can cause problems with excessive pooping and it has no nutritional value for the birds. Instead, I suggest you put in a leaf of silver beet or a leaf of bok choy or similar vegetable. Just poke the leaf through the cage bars. The birds will regard it as a toy to wreck but any they eat is beneficial. Always wash their vegies very carefully. Thanks Cathrine! What does Grevillea look like and Bok Choy? Never heard of them! I have bought some alfalfa sprouts ( i love eating them myself if the birds wont lol) I washed them and stuck some in the cage with a peg holding it. They arnt taking any intrest in it so far. I'll wait for a few hours or more. I also bought some cerly and carrots Washed them and shred the carrots and put them in a bowl on the floor of cage, both arnt taking interest in them. I guess they are wondering what they are lol. Okay I wonuse Lettacee thanks. Thanks for your help! Cheers!
  6. Thank Jodie that did help. I'll uy some alfalf tomorro and see f that will help! Yes i heard about lettace not good for budgies but not entirerly sure. Cheers!

    Cograts on Your new budgie Jess!!
  16. I have a few videos of my budgies id like to share Pebbles and Sparky but i dont know how to upload the on here?
  17. Hello I love your Budgies they are sooo cute! thanks for showing the pictures! Cheers!
  18. Thank you Elly, im getting my cage soon. and will cover the cage when i get my new cage. They wont go inside the cage and when they do and when i get near to shut the door they fly out of the cage, they arnt tame yet... taking progress. Hugs
  19. Yes Sparky is molting, i am not sure if pebbls is a girl or not yet. can babies still mate?? My cage is small but i leave the door open all the time im home alot so i watch them I am looking for a bigger cage i found a couple on the internet that i like i just have to save up. which is hard cos i dont have a job yet and on pension. Looking for work though. part time. I dont have a credit card or debt card mum does though so i give her the money to buy. I just gotta email the seller for the cage to see how big the bar space is. I want one on trolly so i can wheel them outside in the sun and shade. Thanks everyone for all your advice!p.s i dont keep them coverd cos its hot here.... i only have one food dish but going to get another one today. I also handle Pebbles alot more then Sparky he dosnt like it.Could that be the reason too? Jelousey?
  20. okay thanks, do i need to join up first? is a big bar spacing dangerous for the birds? why does it have to be 12cm? If it's too big they can get out, or they can get stuck in the bars and die! If they try and tell you it's fine for budgies ask them for exact measurements... also ask if their are any section with wider bar spacing, esp near doors and corners, and ask for those too. Also remember, they want to sell this cage to you and some people will say anything! I personally havn't bought from them so can't personally comment. Good luck thank you maesie
  21. Sparky and Pebbles fight over the food and the swing and when ever they are ontop of the cage, Pebbles is minding her own business and then Sparky he is older 6 months old, pecks at her. Why is this? Is Sparky jelouse?
  22. okay thanks, do i need to join up first? is a big bar spacing dangerous for the birds? why does it have to be 12cm?
  23. whats a cere??? I tried to take another photo with better light and angle but Sparky and Pebbles kept running away, i dont think they like having photos taken lol. p.s i pushed my finger onto pebbles belly but she didnt step up, so i left it at that. What am i doing wrong???
  24. Do you have a picture? Would love to see Peanut!
