  1. He used to eat about a tablespoon of seed per day, plus some lettuce/other veggies and some other 'treats' (bread/cereal/cooked rice/etc). Now he is eating about 2 tablspoons seed a day; I don't think he is eating anymore of the other things, but I haven't been giving him anymore than usual so I can't be sure. Actually, I did switch seed brands, it would be probably a few months ago, he just finished the bag of the new seed brand. I got the new brand because it had fewer "extras" in it that he never ate anyway. He pretty much just eats the millet out of his seed mix, and ignores the other
  2. I'm wondering if my Allen has worms or something. He's acting normal except he's been eating over twice the amount of seed he normally does in a day. It started sometime ths past winter; at first I thought he was just eating more because it was cold, but that's not it; its warm now and I think he's eating even more. His poos are normal and he is maintaining the same weight. As I said, he seems completely normal except for eating so much (and not gaining weight). Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks
  3. Thanks, Finnie! Actually, Allen doesn't really like getting his picture taken (you might have noticed the millet in most of the shots..), he prefers to chew on the camera Yes, I put his picture on that Budgie-Info website a while back... they have a thing that any one can submit pictures of their budgies Thanks Kaj. I have to agree that he is very cute, but I might be a little biased
  4. I was taking some pictures of my little Allen a couple days ago, and I have to say... either my photography skills are improving or Allen is becoming a little more tolerant of the paparazzi. Anyway, here are the pictures (I hope none are too big...) Enjoy! Sorry that was a rather picture-heavy post..

  9. My budgie eats bread osasionally. I would just say to make sure it is whole wheat/whole grain.

  11. Love that aviary! Looks great!!
  12. I agree, yellow female and white male. Cute budgies
  13. Just read through this -FUNNY! LOL
  14. I am curious what mutation these two budgies are. Our local zoo recently got an aviary of budgies.. these are two of them. Thanks
  15. Yes, I think its the same... I think mine is a canon eos rebel T3. When I got it I really had no experience with any kind of "good" cameras, but I knew canon was a pretty good brand... anyway, the rebels were less expensive than the other canons. But I read that really you dont need a super expensive camera to take good shots, just a decent one and a good lens. As I said mine came with 2 lenses. I got it from Anazon, but I don't know if they still sell it. I really like the camera, but i'm still learning how to use it, lol. Oh and yes, we had a great vacation! We went down the Gulf
  16. Its been very cold here. Very hard on my chickens. Today it was finally warmer... I hope everyone is doing okay.

      Thanks for the well wishes. It's been cold here too. Hoping more people will be on here soon.

  17. Allen is molting right now, too. Luckily he let's me preen his head and carefully open up his pinfeathers. He is so sweet.
  18. Thank you! How are your birds doing?
