Nu budgie owner posted a topic in General Questions About BudgiesHi my budgie had her wings clipped yesterday. I also bought her a bigger square cage, put a couple of her fav toys in but also added some new toys she seems not herself today and ive noticed her poop is a bit watery. I saw her eating some millet this morning but she hasnt been stuck into her seed, water and dry food like she normally is. The watery poop concerned me. Is that from the stress of having wings clipped? She wasnt too thrilled being taken out of cage yesterday and was biting the man when he took her out. She isnt tame yet but has never attempted to bite me. Is this behaviour/poop normal after having wings clipped? I feel really bad now that ive upset her little world. ive just now half covered her cage and im playing budgie sounds on youtube. Hoping this helps how she is feeling
Bringing New Budgie Home: When To Clip Wings?
tippy posted a topic in Bringing Home A New BudgieHello, I was just wondering: Soon I will bring a new budgie home. I live in a country where budgies' wings are not clipped (animal activists see it as cruel...but that is another story). Should I clip the wings (I only would like to do so once, for taming purposes) immediately when I bring the budgie home, or instead wait some days/weeks before doing so? I don't want to make the bird afraid of me with irreversible damage to its trust in me. Please advise me! PS: Please do not bash me for clipping the wings. This is not a discussion if it is morally correct or not. Thanks!
