Budgies Kept






Found 1 result

  1. Hello, I have bought a cobalt budgie from a well known NSW breeder (John Hewitt) a couple of months ago at a Sale Night (Budgerigar Society of NSW St George Branch). Since I have bought it he has been squeaking (sounds similar to an asthma attack) whenever I go close to him and gets scared or when bending down to eat from a bowl. He does not squeak any other time and he looks pretty healthy and active otherwise. I tried to treat him for air sac mites with Avimec (Vetafarm) for 3 weeks with no result. Now it is a couple of weeks that I have been giving him Triple C antibiotic both in the water and mixed with seeds. He still does not show any sign of improvement. Considering that it is now about 2 months (since I bought it on May 17) that he has this condition and does not seem to be life-threatening, I was wondering whether anyone experienced a similar issue and suggest what could be the cause. I was also wondering whether it is ethical for a breeder to sell a potentially sick budgie at an official Society Sale Night. Thanks for any help
