  1. We treated her leg. All seems to be okay for now. We are holding off breeding until the wound is healed and to give them all time to calm down from the scare and all the moving around. We moved the pair back into the bigger cage with our other budgie Max.
  2. My breeding hen Rarity man aged to escape her breeding cage while changing food. She landed on our rat cage. The rat bit her let and clamped down. It took both me and my husband to get them apart. The vets were closed. She bled a lot but did not act phased at all. She is not tame but after that she clung to me for a bit.

  3. Thanks! We have started to try and breed. We moved the pair to a different cage with the nest box on the outside. All signs are good, but we will see I guess. Wish us luck. We will start a breeding journal if she starts showing signs of being with egg/s.

Should the nest box perch go halfway in the box too? The box will be placed on the top shelf in the cage (not in
  5. Hello, I'm new here to the forum. I found the link on a breeder website here in the USA, so I hope it is okay that I signed up. My husband and I have recently gotten into budgies and are wanting to breed them eventually. (Not very often and not to sell, but to keep birds in our home, so on and so forth) We currently have three parakeets (I'm going to call them that from here on out. It is what I'm used to) and they are in the same cage. Two of them are male and one is female. We got them from a local mom and pop type pet shop (they do most of their breeding in store). At first we g
