  1. My budgie does not display any other symptoms of illness but I noticed something on his beak and I need to check if this is what a mite infestation looks like. Please let me know if you have any ideas what is causing this and do I need to take him to the vet?
  2. Hi there, Im just hoping someone can really help me figure out this growth on my budgies back. He is a about 7 years old and seems to be normal healthy, I hav ent noticed any changes in his day to day activities or his poop. He was preening one day when i noticed a black growth on his back above his tail feathers ( near the oil gland perhaps? ) The growth has taken a claw like shape and pretty much looks like a gross overgrown claw. The part where the growth is attached to his back seems like it could be filled with pus. The growth is very hard and did soak it in some warm water, but it didnt get any softer. Does anyoneknow what it could possibly be and if it can be removed at home? Or anything that i can do to help it? anyone know how i can put up pics also? i ahve pics of his growth Thanks so much im really worried
  3. The budgie I'm hand rearing has formula drip out of the sides when he is eating. I wipe it off but it has gotten large chunks in his cheeks and on his chest feathers. His cheek formula is connected to his skin so I can't cut it all away. His chest some of the feathers came out, stuck to others with formula. I cut that out, but then I saw what looks like two feather ends stuck under his skin, and they were bleeding from the tips. They stopped after not much blood, but I don't know what the things under his skin on his crop and how to deal with the large formula. They are too small to be cysts.about half a cm. Mum says when he moults it'll fix itself but he is only three weeks old. I can't afford a vet.

  5. Hello everyone. I am new to this forum and in need of urgent advice. Basically, I have a clearly very sick budgie that I am unable to take to the vet, the reason being that there are no vets that look at birds in my city. Either that, or I am unable to find one (I live in Cairo, Egypt by the way). I have attached a photo of what my budgie looks like right now. He's been unable to stand properly for a few hours, and be lost his balance and fell to the bottom of the cage a few hours ago, which is when I understood that something was very wrong. I knew he was sick previously, however he seemed to be recovering after being given antibiotics (which I got from a different country). Anyway, I am currently watching him very closely and keeping him in the place where he is really comfortable (the hood of my hoodie) and offering him food and water. He didnt drink much water but he ate lots of millet, which made me feel a bit better. He keeps going in and out of a lying down position, sometimes trying to get up and moving his head around. He also can still fly, as he did several time around the room. He cannot stand though, and he loses his balance. One foot seems to be injured (or paralyzed?). His feathers look normal however his dropping have been wet and had rings of green surrounding them on the cage lining. He hasn't been pooping consistently, only about 3 times in the last 3 hours. He has basically been lying down on me for the last 3 hours, occasionally eating and flying away 3 times. So yeah, his wings seem to be fine. His breathing seems to be fine but previously, about a week and a half ago, his tail was bobbing a lot as he breathed. That's about all the information I can provide. I need urgent advice as to how I can help him (taking him to the vet not being possible unless someone knows an avian vetererarian in Egypt in the Cairo area). Please reply if you are able to. Thank you. If anything changes, I will reply to this post.
  6. Hey guys I have a baby budgie about 25 days old. He/she is too small for its age. The other babies younger to it are much bigger (double in size). But this one is too small. He/she is of the same size as it was a week ago. But feathers and fur grows quite well. Mother feeds them daily. He/she is not so active, either sleeping or just looking around. I tried hand feeding it 3 times. It ate very little food. Also, I think he/she is not able to stand properly. He/she leans towards one side and takes heavy breaths Can you guys please let me know if anything is wrong? Uploading a video taken today April 25, 2020. This video is taken just after hand feeding him VID_20200425_141515.mp4
  7. i have a female budgie who until recently was pretty normal. she started molting and her and my male bred. i dont think it was successful since she never laid an egg but now she is laying completely flat on her belly for most of the day. she has a very faint yellow staining above her cere. tail bobbing and seems to be having difficulty flying. I seperated her from the male in fear of her being sick and spreading it to him. im worried about her but she seems to eat and drink like normal. i know they miss each other as i put the cages close enough they can chirp at each other and not be too lonely. the male has now started humping EVERYTHING in the cage. could the female just be egg bound? if so what should i do? im use to Big parrots not small budgies but i love my birds and want to help them. am i over reacting and shes just ready for round two of the male or am i justified in thinking she may be sick? please help
  8. Hey guys, Just came over to my mums house and saw my sister's bird and it has like these dry looking scaly lumps grown around its face. Also has very scaly feet too. I asked my younger sister why she hadn't noticed and taken it to the vet or at least googled something but she's very ditzy and only young but i'm still mad she didn't tell my mum. It seems quite healthy though he chirps a lot and plays with its toys and has been eating normal. It's hand tamed and about 6 months old just for reference too and apparently my sister said it's been getting worse over time about 2 months after she bought him. So can anyone possibly tell us what maybe wrong with it ? *Please no hate or anything, we want advice so we can literally help it ! Thanks:)
  9. Hi guys my male budgie has recently started to develop some red marks around his cere (top of beak). And has dry feet. He is eating, but isnt as active as he usually is. Is my budgie sick? What can i do? Please help, any help and/or advice will be appreciated.
  10. My 1.5 years old budgie started to act strange. He isn’t chirping anymore, he used to sing all the time. He also looks fluffed and tired. He is sleeping more. I have took him to the vet they said he is fine. But i can tell somethings wrong beacuse he isnt acting like himself. I have been giving him vitamins.
  11. I have a male budgie who is a few years old and having balance issues. My mum called me frantically and said he was flailing his wings in the air. I ran in thinking it might be a stroke, but he climbed back up to the perch and is constantly swaying from side to side. He’s trying to move from side to side on the perch but the swaying is making it hard. He can fly just fine. He’s had 3 clutches of eggs with his mate in his life. I moved him into a new cage yesterday to make room for my new princess parrot. I was keeping him with his youngest babies who are about 6 months old since one of the budgies in the bigger cage was aggressive towards them, but since they’re older now he’s leaving them alone. He seemed fine when I moved him, and only started showing these symptoms a few hours ago. I don’t know if he maybe has some sort of neurological issue, maybe he was hit on the head somehow? I don’t know how this has happened. I don’t know if it could still be a stroke, but that’s one of my ideas. He seems fine other than the balance issues. If there’s nothing I can do for him myself, do you think he’d be okay for another 2 days? I’m taking my eclectus to an avian vet to get her nails trimmed. Would I have to pay extra to take him as well? Vets are closed at this time, so I can’t take him right now. Also, with my new princess parrot, she’s accidentally come in contact with my other birds. I only got her today, but I’ve been seeing her for months. The pet shop I got her from said she’d been vet checked when she came in as they have a vet attached to the shop. It’s a good pet shop, I’ve never seen an unhealthy bird there. They keep the cages clean and give the birds fruit and veg. They said it would be alright not to quarantine her, but I’m still wanting to do that anyways. I don’t have a big house so they are in the same room, but her cage is far from the rest of the birds. But when I took her out, she flew to my other princess parrots cage. She seems healthy, except her flight feathers are clipped a bit too far down but that’s not going to effect the other birds. What should I do? They were pretty close to each other. What if she is sick?
  12. Hi, tonight my sister in law dropped off a little blue budgie she found on her doorstep. It was fretting so she caught it and brought it over to me because i own two cockatiels, a quaker and an eclectus. I willingly took it in as an animal lover, put it in a spare cage i had and upon closer inspection i noticed possible abnormalities on its little face and feet. It kind of looks like overgrowth or maybe it has been hurt? Or maybe it is nothing at all. I have provided some photos, if you have any idea what it is please let me know, I am scared of it being actually hurt. Note: the budgie doesn't seem to be in pain, it is content on sitting on a perch all fluffed up and it has had a bit of water and a little bit of food but he keeps picking at his sore foot and can't seem to keep his eyes open. http://i.imgur.com/NXO3RIa.jpg http://i.imgur.com/DQLNtVz.jpg Edit: the claws on its feet are actually bound together with skin, is this a deformity or some sort of infection?
  13. I have two green budgies: Male and Female. I came home today and went to go check on my birds. However, once I checked that inside the cage the male budgie was at the bottom of the cage, and it had puffed up feathers. Then when I reached my hand in the cage it went on a perch. It was still puffed up and standing on one leg. The top of its head was also strange, as the feathers covering the head were uneven. What should I do? Is my budgie sick? I'm very concerned for my budgie I don't want it to die
  14. Hey there friends, my mum came inside from looking at my aviary today, and told me that one of them seems sick. I never saw any of this myself, so I can’t tell you exactly what happened, but apparently he tried to fly back to a perch and fell. She also said that he sat in the corner and closed his eyes after falling. She also told me that he was having trouble gripping with one of his feet. She was also able to pet him while he was on the ground, but this may not be related since he’s the friendliest budgie in the aviary. I handled him a lot when he was a baby. She took him inside in a smaller cage, and then told me all this. At first I was really scared it was a stroke, as I’ve lost a lot of birds that way, including his grandfather. But when I came to see him, he is acting completely healthy. Very alert, flying around the cage every time he gets scared by one of my other birds noises, etc. I honestly don’t see anything wrong with him, and this worries me. The nearest avian vet is almost an hour away, and we have a 5k radius because of covid. Would appreciate help asap, as I’m scared this could be a serious issue.
  15. So I've had her for almost two months and I've noticed that the past few days her feathers have been very sparse around her nose and a bit around her eyes. I don't know whether I should be worried or if this is normal. Is it molting? Is she sick? Is it because she's naturally ready to breed? Someone please help! I've never owned a bird before and I'm worried there's something wrong. She's acting fine and eating fine, so I don't know if this is normal or not.
