    Introducing baby budgie to one year old - help?

    Hi all I took the plunge and brought home Franklin, who is about 6 weeks now, to Winston (about 10-12 months, birthday unknown). Unfortunately it hasn’t gone as I hoped it would so far - which I thought I was mentally prepared for but obviously not. Frankie (who we are pretty sure is a boy)...

    My baby budgies leg might be disabled. What can I do?

    Hi again! We had baby budgies hatching about 2 weeks ago, and we have recently realized that the middle ones leg looks a little off. He doesn't bend it at all, it just sticks out at the back. I can carefully bend it in place without him feeling any pain, but it won't stay in that position. Can I...

    How do I help my budgie be more independent?

    Peri has recently started to climb all over his cage in (I assume) desperation to come out any time he sees or hears me. It's getting to the point where he's ruining his feathers climbing the bars and I worry about him not eating as he spends all his time running around. I have to leave the room...

    Is it crop burn?

    We just finished hand feeding our around 5 week old budgie. While we were feeding him, he leaped towards the spoon and ate some of the formula when it was too hot. We took it away immediately. It was only a little and at 113° Fahrenheit. Is this enough to cause crop burn? Is there anything we...

    Normal baby budgie behavior?

    I recently got an English budgie around 4 weeks old. I didn’t know until later that getting an unweaned bird wasn’t a good idea :(( but the breeder told us it was fine at the time, and even tried to give us a featherless baby for free along with him. It’s not something I will ever repeat. But he...

    New baby budgie healthy?

    Hi, this is my first time using this so sorry if I did it completely wrong haha. I recently got a 4-5 week old budgie named Bumi from an ad. It seems healthy. He (or she, but I’ll just say he for now) is eating and begging for food, chirping, pooping, sleeping, trying to chew things, and...

    Nervous new baby budgie

    I'm thrilled to be welcoming Peri, a 7-week-old budgie, but wanted to get more experienced members' advice on what to do for the first few weeks to make him comfortable and happy and friendly. He was handfed but seems extremely nervous - he stays in one spot for hours at a time and I'm worried...

    Baby bird has left the nest

    Hi, so my baby budgie is 6 weeks old now, and this morning I walked out to find it was sitting on the bottom of the cage. I heard that budgies fledge around 5 weeks, but I’m unsure if the baby should be out or if the parents have kicked it out. For the last couple days I’ve noticed it sitting...

    Baby budgie splayed legs

    Hi, so my budgies have recently had a clutch of 4 eggs (the first was laid 37 days ago, and is sadly the only one to survive as one of the four eggs never hatched, 1 baby died a couple days after hatching and I just found the other dead today, it was tiny for its age and had barely developed...

    Scab on Baby Budgie’s Wing

    Hey guys! Today was the first time I misted Ollie (not a fan!) but I noticed a scab on his right wing after he was wet. Is this from a lost blood feather? Do I need to be worried or do anything for him? He is not babying it at all and still flaps both wings and gets around normally. Thank you!!!

    New Budgie Kicking Seeds Out

    Hello, I have a baby male budgie that I brought home just yesterday. He is in his own cage on the far opposite side of the room from my 3 budgies in a large cage. He only stays on the side nearest the other cage. Also, he gets in his bowl and throws/ kicks the seeds out with his feet. I have...

    Introducing New Parakeet

    Hello! This is my first post (so I apologize if I am posting in the wrong place). I have three parakeets- 1 male and 2 females. The second female is younger than the first two. I had her in a separate cage but in the same room and she would call to them all day and only sit on the side of her...

    PLEASE HELP! I found my two baby budgies severely attacked by another bird. I have separated that bird into a smaller cage. The greener baby has its beak loose on one side. I have absolutely no vets near me and I can not travel because of this whole annoying pandemic. The bleeding has stopped...

    my budgie :)

    I have had great progress with Kiwi, she can fly now and she is in the process of learning how to step up. We are training her and making sure she is safe. When we saw her on Sunday, she was flying all around and she seemed to love being in my hair. She kept on flying to the top of my head and...

    Budgies asleep during the day? Normal or Unique Personality?

    Hello, its been about 3 months now since I got my budgies. They are still young. However, I have noticed my budgies in general aren't as active/talkative as the ones I normally see at pet stores/ on videos. My budgies seem to like to sleep alot during the day, and rarely make any noise...

    New cage for my budgie!

    So I found a really great deal for a cage for my single budgie, and I bought it and set it up today, and my budgie hopped right in! Very glad and very excited for my budgie to be in a larger cage finally. I am concerned that I didn't space it out correctly, because I put the natural and rope...

    Ice Cream and Bluebell parents again...

    Well, I heard small chirping coming from the nest and low and behold and egg has hatched and now a small little pink chick is there. I swear I didn’t even see Finch or Silver when they were that small! It was adorable and hopefully it makes it through the growing process. Also, my father might...
