  1. 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 it within 3-4 days (and I was planning on refilling it with a mix of pellets later), but she ignored my claims of protest telling her about what happened. I told her that he was fat, and her response was "don't be ridiculous". She refilled the entire thing with seeds only and let them eat almost all of the seeds. I don't know what to do, because I know that he's fat and my yellow budgie will starve if he and my mother continue this. Any help?
  2. Could he be sick or just moulting or what? This baldness is new!
  3. Hey, I'm a new budgie owner of 2, and I've had them for about 2 weeks. I have a blue one who's name is tofu and a green one who's name is olive(I think they're both male but I'm not sure). I've been trying to train my birds, and tofu is way more social than olive. olive often freaks out when people get too close to the cage. At the moment, tofu will sit on my hand, and olive is okay with just taking millet but not on my hand. My problem started yesterday when i was trying to feed olive and then tofu aggressively pecked at him. This caused olive to back off and not eat the millet. I tried again today and the same thing happened. I am really worried about his sudden aggression. What should I do. PS sorry if this is rambly this is my first time posting on a forum
  4. Today I noticed some yellow-orange stains on the walls where my budgie slept this night, he moves rarely, he always is sleepy and just sometimes when there is a noise he opens his eyes, I took him out of his cage, he wanted to stay on my shoulder, after 2 minutes he wanted to jump on the table (I went to the kitchen), he started eating some crumbs. When he was on my hand, he was very light. I think it may be a food poisoning since he vomited this night according to the stains on the walls. What should I do? Additionally his droppings are white. I fed him with some rice today.
  5. 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.
  6. Hi everyone πŸ˜„! I bought this beautiful baby boy about 2 weeks ago and I absolutely adore him. In the last couple of days I have noticed these strange brown-blackish markings on his beak. He has been pruning himself like mad everyday (I have sprayed him and my aviary for mites and lice) and when I took this photo today I discovered he's also scratching at his beak. I'm nervous but I'm hoping it's just a bruise as he's always harassing one of my older males (No serious harm but every now and then the but beaks 😝 ) In google-fashion upon doing a search a bunch of horrifying things come up. I heard that it could be a lack of vegetables which is a possibility as the rest of the birds in my aviary reject most vegetables (except for carrots) so I don't put some out every day. As you can see in some of the pictures I was desperately trying to get him to eat some carrot but he wasn't interested. Any ideas/advice/people with past experience? I ran my fingers gently over his beak and there's no lumps or bumps
  7. We have had two beautiful budgies for around a month - both came at about age 6 weeks from a small breeder. We had read that by getting two budgies we were running the risk that they would bond to each other rather than us and be difficult to train. This seems to be true and they are now going backwards rather than forwards in their training. We were able to get them out of their cage (though they'd mainly just sit on top of it) but now they are scared whenever we open the cage and are nearly impossible to catch. They sit together nearly all the time and the female will nip us even if we are trying to get the male onto our finger. Any tips!? We love them and would really like it if they would get used to flying out of the cage and sitting on our fingers.
