Budgie Too Fat To Fly

Recommended Posts

Hello all

My budgie, Charlotte, has gotten so fat she can't even fly properly. When she comes out, she normally just sits in top of the cage and chills. If she decides she wants to fly, she'll fly up in the air and fly into any nearby obstacle (window, radiator, mirror, wall). I'm afraid at some stage she might injure herself doing this. Can anybody help?

Try feeding her less seeds, and until she looses some weight clip her wings. pellets and veggies are good, no more than 20% seeds, not too many fruits.

More veg and definitely pellets. My birds are on Harrisons very good brand can't go wrong.
