  1. Hi guys, I'm really keen to buy a budgie that I can tame and teach it to talk, but don't know which sex is the best for it. I've read that males are much more easy to tame as well as not being as aggressive. I also seen that some people have bad experiences with males and aren't good to tame as they don't speak etc. So are female budgies or male budgies better, and which sex is the best to get overall. Hope you guys can help me out Many thanks
  2. Hi im new here i beleive i nay have an odd budgie 😂 okay well ive had him a couple of mnths, hes 8 mnths old, from a flock off a breeder, he settled in rather quick and its content.. But thats not the issue! okay hes escaped the cage once and had to catch with a towel, hes been on my finger twice by accident, he hates hands, will eat millet stick because its a distance and took ages to get him to, but the second my finger goes near him hes off. I hold my hand in constantly hes not botherd, ill fumble and rearange his toys hes not botherd, he also dont even play with anything, he climbs about
  3. 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.
  4. I can't take any photos right now, but.. I'm 14, and live with my parents. I refilled a large, half- foot high, less- than- a- foot wide container, and my blue budgie managed to eat it within 2 days, with little help from my yellow budgie. My blue budgie seems fat, because you can't see his keel- and can't run well, but my mother says otherwise. She always spoils our pets. Every pet we get ourselves and want to take care of ourselves, she always spoils them much more. When I told her that he was fat, she ignored that and yelled at me for "not refilling the food". Usually I refill i
  5. Hi there, I'm new here, and I've been trying to tell if my yellow/lutino budgie is male or female, and I would apreciate if somebody could tell me since I'm not really sure, I think it's a male but I need others opion.
  6. My budgie under 2 months was pecked by a big one and is not using one leg at all. He is eating normally and hopping around in one leg. I applied some turmeric and it is the best I could do. I don't know what else to do. There are no avian vets around my place and cannot travel out due to Lockdown. Please help! I don't know what to do.
  7. I have been trying to tame my budgie for 8 months now and I try and try but he seems to forget everything. And when I have him tame I try to get him out the next day and he started flying away and got realy scared and I don't know if he can't remember me or what...
  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
  9. I had my parakeets for over a year now, and i feel like they still have not warmed up to me yet, i dont want to give up on them but feel like i am. what should i do
  10. My budgie flew into my bathroom unexpectedly and landed on the floor. Then he ran to a tiny nook under the corner of a cabinet under the sink and he hasn’t come out for a long time now. The big problem is, he isn’t that tame yet so it’s harder for me to save him...I can’t see him at all. It seems he is moving around freely and is confined to a narrow space between the cabinet and the wall. Someone please help me...It’s been 2 hours and he still hasn’t come out...
  11. Hi all! Just last week I was moving houses and I transported my budgie Sprite in a shoebox (not the best, i know!) and i think he may have broken his toe? It’s bent back and pointing upwards and he tends to favor it yet he still uses it. I was wondering if there was anything I or a vet could do or should i just let it heal naturally?
  12. Hey, is it okay to use this nestbox for my parakeets couple ? basically it's a cockatiel nestbox but it's the best I can find in my area concerning the quality of wood and the size, it's a bit large for a parakeet I guess but would it be a problem ?
  13. Hello! I have had my boy for nearly a year and the past few months his cere hasn't been quite right. At first it was only a small amount, but it has gotten worse. He eats well, mainly seeds, but i feed him plenty of fruits, veg and greens! (Blueberries, carrots, mint, lettuce, parsley, apple etc) He is acting as normal as ever too, very happy and loving. I let him out a few times a week to stretch his wings and i keep his cage clean too, so I'm unsure where this could have come from. I have attached some photos for reference, to me it looks dry? maybe from the odd whether, bu
  14. My winter project this year was to build an indoor aviary for our growing budgie family. The pet shop cages stacked on top of each other in true redneck fashion just wasn't doing it. We used Redwood with a red Oak stain sealed with polyurethane for the frame, Tenax 1'X3/4" (2.5cm X 1.8cm) vinyl garden netting for the mesh, coconuts for feeders and Raffia Tiki Huts to protect their internal water dishes from downfall. It's designed with modular internal panels so it can be configured anywhere from 1 up to 8 separate compartments. It is currently set up for four breeding pairs. I had a hard ti
  15. Hi everyone, I had a very happy little baby girl budgie called Baby because she didn’t have fully developed wings and her tail wasn’t grown. She was 1 of 6 in the family and she was much loved. I found her puffed up and trying to sleep so i got her out of the cage and gave her cuddles and she wouldn’t let go.. the whole night, she just wanted to cuddle. I was cuddling her all the next morning and was very worried about her. She wouldn’t sit on her perch. She had bubbles coming from her mouth and just wanted to sit on the floor of that cage in the blankets. I came home from school to
  16. Hi guys, this afternoon i noticed my 21 day old budgie's feathers ( just a few) on the bottom of the nest box. In the last few days the hen has been spending quite a bit more time in the nest box. i saw her trying to pull out her baby's feathers earlier this afternoon, the baby was screeching loudly, so i immediately looked it up on the internet. the website recommended removing the hen. I have done this to prevent her from attacking her chick and i am hoping the cock will pick up on looking after the baby as the website said he would. could i please have some advice asap? what do i do
  17. Hi all! I have 4 pairs of budgies, all 10 months old and are about to start their first cluch! One of them is already sitting on 4 eggs (might be more later)! Now I have another lonely 2 y/o male budgie who is desperately trying to get a female buy since they are all taken he is alone. I am sure that if I get another female he will court her. The only problem is that I am afraid that now when all the pairs are headed to start their first cluches, adding a new budgie will stress them and they might stop the cluch they are about to start, or worse, the pair who is sitting on eggs might aban
  18. I breed budgies in my aviary and I recently hatched a bunch of four. One of the budgies must be aggressive because 3 have sustained injuries. 2 have healed up nicely with some medication, but one received injuries to its lower beak. I gave it some antibiotics before going away for 4 days. I came home today to find the swelling gone, but one side of the beak is disconnected from the chin. I was planning on hand rearing one for the first time after owning budgies for a year and Im going to do this one. What will happen with the beak? He doesn't make any noise whatsoever that I have heard, while
  19. Saved from some attacking minor birds. Has been vet checked.
  20. Hi everyone, sorry if this is in the wrong place or is redundant and has been answered before, but I've just received a young budgie approx. 30 days from a family member that has an aviary and occasionally has a clutch of babies. However, this budgies parents have both died quite unluckily. The mother's death has an unknown cause, but she's been a prolific breeder pretty much laying eggs in a constant stream one clutch after the other as soon as her previous babies have fledged- perhaps exhaustion? The father flew out of the aviary unfortunately. I'm no stranger to budgies, I currently own 3
  21. I had setup my breeding pair about 2 weeks ago and everything was looking fine they started mating in 3 day's and the female spends most of the time in the nest box. but recently i have noticed that the female is plucking her vent feathers, she isnt showing any signs of egg binding and is spending 2/3 of the day in the nestbox her poop is huge just like usual and isnt watery or abnormal , she doesnt sit on the floor I have breed budgies before and know what im doing i just find this strange because my last breeding pair layed fertile egg's 5 day's after mating
  22. 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
  23. Hi everyone! New to this forum... oh and kinda new to breeding. Yes ive done my research and have been trying to breed for a few months now, my budgies first clutch, the eggs were fertile and she layed about 4 of them, she was two days into the incubation process and she just ignored them? So i thought classic first mum problems (as i had read about them everywhere) so i put the nestboxes back up a few weeks later. All is well and i think she has layed about 4 eggs, (i dont know as i try to go in there as little time as possible) she is about half a week into the incubation process and i no
  24. I am currently breeding a pair of green budgies and so far I have two baby budgies in the nesting box. They are around 3-4 weeks in age, and there is a lot of droppings in the nesting box. Sadly, one of the baby budgies have severely splayed legs, and tried using the sponge method. The baby budgie with the splint is occasionally slipping on the droppings and so I need to clean the nesting box. One time I tried cleaning the nesting box but then the budgie parents were terrified and they started flying all over the cage. Is there a way for me to clean the nesting box without scaring the parent
  25. I think this chick is roughly 19 days old not 100 % on age. I am wanting to know what the birds sex is if possible and also what colour does everyone think , I see blue feathers coming through on the chest just wondering what its called . Any help is appreciated .Thanks https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151635270633915&set=pcb.10151635271078915&type=1&theater , https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151635270973915&set=pcb.10151635271078915&type=1&theater
