I, for one, am over there trying to provide good answers and better information than a lot that is currently being offered. This topic was not designed to ridicule the people asking the questions....it is meant to show that bad information is being offered out there and how we can possibly offer better advice through opening up some peoples eyes to these things.


I was kind of hoping to rally some "volunteers" from here to help put better info out there on the other site.


Yes, that is the purpose of this topic. And we have adopted a number of members from that site too and taken them under our wing. :D

Here are some more questions that need our experienced advice.


My female budgie is starting to get a bit big in the stomach but she is really drowsy what dose that mean??r=1?

Answer 1) could be getting overwieght and needs a birdie diet, or could have some eggs! the vet can tell you.


Can you answer this better?? ---> http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_y...01184726AARdZDj



Why does my budgie eat so much? she eats the nuts all day and also the fruits and veggies. ALL DAY!?

Answer 1) obsessive compulsive? I had a budgie that used to throw his gravel out of it's cup and on to the floor.. until the cup was empty. He would have done it all day long, I got to the point I'd give him gravel for a little while every day. Does you budgie have toys? Might be a case of boredom too.


Answer 2) probably because she was starving. it also might be a good thing.

My bird hit her head and she's making this weird high-pitch squaking noise and she's agressive!?!??!?

I just got back from getting my hair done and my brother told me that my pet parrot was squawking a ton and that usually means she's really hungry. He was putting the food dish in when she tried to sneak out the little door. She hit her head and fell off the cage. My brother said she fluttered to the ground so I'm not worried about that, but she did hit her head. Now she is on her food dish and she is being pretty aggressive. She makes a very high pitch squawk and tries to bite and backs away. She hasn't done that since about a month ago which was only a little while after we got her.


My question is, what should i do? I tried to calm her down but she just gets angry. Should I keep trying to get her out, or will she just calm down on her own if i leave her in there?


-thanks! :)


okay well my mom went and got her out (even though i asked her to wait..... -.-'), and she is sitting on my shoulder right now. But I would still like to know whether i should interact a lot with her or not. She's acting pretty normal except when i put my fingers near her. Should i show her i won't hurt her by petting her or just leave her be?


Answer 1) I think you visit a vet. Maybe she is hurt.

Answer 2) Yes you should show it a lot of love pet it make it think it is number one.When one of my parrots gets hurt they want to be held and love on.

If i put a green male budgie with a white female budgie what colour well i get?


Answer 1) A simple Punnett square tells me that you have a 25% chance of getting white and a 75% chance of getting green.

Answer 2) more than likely green because it is more there natural color and it is dominate but you never know without past history of the parents etc. you could get blue just have to see

Answer 1) If they do not like each other, you'll get red, as in blood. Do not put 2 birds in the same cage until they are familiar, have played in a neutral area and are happy together.

MY ANSWER Veronica..............if you believe birds have ,menstrual cycles then you havent a clue about breeding birds and you should stop what you are doing right now !!!!!


You have major gaps in your knowledge and its time to take a few steps backwards and do some study.

actually the person above me is wrong, birds do have periods during the warm months. if your bird is laying eggs without a mate then she is on her menstrual cycle. her eggs won't be fertilzed though. its disappointing how a "bird expert" doesn't know this about birds.



currently has 10 birds, used to have more... professional vet

My parakeets nose is white?

My girl parakeet used to have a pink nose. As she was supose to. But today, I saw her nose. And it is very noticably white. What does this mean? Is she okay? Is she going to lay eggs? HELP QUICK!!!!


ANSWER yes, she is okay, it is okay for a female bird to change colours, some females, even change to blue, purple, light blue,

a female isn't going to lay eggs, unless she has mated with a male, or she is old enough to have period, but only a few has period.

if you see that she is losing feathers then she is probable molting.


bird owner of many birds includes parakeets or budgie or buderigar, lovebird, cockatiel

Its irresponsible for anyone to advise putting a nestbox in cage at this point. A white cere ( not nose ) is a sign the bird is not in breeding condition and not healthy enough to be breeding. These are times you do NOT add a nestbox.

A female budgies cere will change colour on a cyclic basis through the year depending on her state of health, and if she is coming into or out of breeding condition.



****Birds do not have "periods" ! An owner of many birds should know this to be FACT.

Reading all this just makes me very very sad. It makes you realize that there is absolutely no help for the human race and that our collective IQ is tumbling at an amazing rate.

QUOTE another warning about small birds when they lay eggs the egg can get stuck inside the female in that case you MUST take it to a vet ASAP or it will kill the bird but if you know what you are doing then you can attempt to get it out yourself using your finger UNQUOTE :rolleyes:

How long does it take finch eggs to hatch?

A house finch laid four eggs outside of my house, after nearly a month, the mother discarded one of the eggs (probably dead) and the others she left. Two nights ago she got in my house and flew into my ceiling fan, which killed her. I am now incubating the three eggs. With almost two months of development, and no sign of termination within the egg (for example, blood rings) how can I be sure the eggs aren't dead? Obviously, if the mother was still taking care of them they aren't dead, but how much longer will it take for them to hatch? Or should I just throw them out?



Bird Question?

So I am 13 and I really want a bird. I have two cats that are hunters and would definetly kill and eat the poor little thing. What should I do.

Ugh, what's really sad, yesterday I was in the pet store and I start talking to a guy picking out bird toys.

He said his bird wasn't talking, so I replied, some just don't talk, so he then said that his bird would take a holiday if it didn't talk ( which probably meant that he'd give it away ).
