  1. Hi everyone I've read a bit about people feeding their budgies bread now and then; I do also sometimes. But I worry about things like preservatives that could be bad for them. Can any members recommend a good bread that they feed their birds now and then? Thanks
  2. A friend showed me this, it's been doing the rounds on tumblr apparently: "Half-Sider Budgie. Very rare and born sterile. Photographer unknown. Post source: earthandanimals " Taken from earthandanimals.tumblr.com/post/41664868300 Is this for real?!?!?! My instincts say a horribly loud NO! and this photo looks like there's been some abuse of photoshop's clone tool in the area around the birds stomach. But then my friend found this website: http://halfsider.com/index.html Would love to hear the members opinions on this "rare budgie" !!!!! Oh my goodness, is it *actual

  4. *BUMP* Does anyone know the answer? It's a public holiday today in Canberra and I'd like to make toys
  5. Hi everyone. I hope this is allowed here- I would like to very publicly praise a certain pet store in Canberra in hopes that others will find it useful. If I am not allowed to name them specifically please let me know and I will delete it! Firstly, I would like to mention that I bought my budgie from a pet store as a last resort. I spent a long time trying to find a breeder in Canberra (KAZ may remember this!) and all potential contact details I had led to nothing. So I went to a pet store called Belconnen Discount Pet Centre, having been there years ago. This store is a family owned
  6. Hi everyone, I want to make some budgie toys but thought to check here first to make sure my materials are safe. The only thing I am unclear on is some rope that I bought from Lincraft. The label said it was Rayon, and the other word mentioned was Viscose (which I know is synthetic) Do any members know whether these materials are bird safe? I plan to use the rope to thread through beads, so I don't anticipate that there will be any large exposed sections of Rayon that my budgies could get tangled in. I just want to know that if they nibble on the rope (or shred as the case may be with
  7. Hello ! I've noticed that Yoshi has been itching his face on toys etc. (more than usual!) and I've noticed he looks very patchy between the beak and eyes. Sorry about the lighting but you can see the patchyness I am worried that he has feather mites on his face, because he isn't hand tame I can't have a very close look, and my camera is very bad so I'm not sure that these pictures will even be of use to the members. He is very red on the skin above his cere Money is tight at the moment and taking him to the vet isn't an option. I think I might just get some o
  8. Hi everyone, My budgie and I have just moved into a new house, where we discovered some termite damage. After notifying the owners, we've found out the house has already been fumigated. Nice of them to let us know, hey? What kinds of things do I need to be worried about? Budgie is already home and has been for 24 hours, he is currently in the laundry until the house loses its "new paint smell." I assume that because they have allowed us to move in and know I have a bird then it is safe, but just thought I'd ask the members for their experience. I'll find out whether the house was t
  9. Hello members I bought this cage from an op shop today for $5 so that I can transport my bird in the car as I move house. What do you think about its design? What do I need to be careful of when traveling with a budgie in the car? Also, I feel very sad for the bird that obviously had to live in this cage, it's obvious that it was bored as the plastic food containers have chewed up edges. Is it okay to keep them there if I scrub and clean the bejeebus out of them or do they need to be tossed out anyway? I plan to scrub everything down with a wet cloth and leave it in the
  10. Hi everyone!!!! I've finally managed to find the details of not one, but TWO Canberra breeders!!!!!! WHEEEEEEEEE!! :D I know this is a late reply, but if anyone happens to stumble upon this thread after a few months and has had no luck, please pm me if you want both phone numbers. YAY!
  11. Thanks for everyone's advice. There is no way I am set up to be a budgie breeder anytime soon, I am just after a little friend for him to chat to and preen Should've made that a bit clearer, sorry guys! !!!! I'd love to know the details of this event you speak of. What is it? Is it open to the public? Are there likely to be pet type birds for sale? :DSo enthusiastic about this comment, have been searching and searching for a budgie community in Canberra but everything listed online so far has been a dead end.
  12. Thanks KAZ. Is it better to get a baby or adult male?
  13. Hello everyone It has been ages since I last posted! My little Yoshi has grown tons and is happy and sociable. He was bought from a pet store (a decent-ish one) and not hand raised so it has been very difficult to tame him. He eats fruit and seeds from our hands and will stand on our finger but not for more than 2 seconds My partner and I are seriously considering getting him a companion bird. I know it is quite a late decision, but when we look to the future it only involves both of us working and going to uni more and hate the idea of having him alone all the time. So my questi

  15. I know a few of these photos have been posted to my other threads, but I thought I'd make a topic where I can post photos of my new budgie Yoshi http://photos-h.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-as...0_6634945_n.jpg When he first arrived!
