    Head Feather Concern

    Hi everyone! A couple months ago my budgies had their first molt and lost just about all of their little forehead bars. I noticed this week they've been having some changes around the face, mainly the forehead and eye area. These are my first birds so I'm not sure if this is something I need to...

    Perch VS Toy Ratio in Cage?

    Hey everyone, just a question that I've been thinking about lately. Is there a ballpark estimate of how occupied a cage should be in terms of perches and toys? More perches than toys, vice versa, about the same ratio? I want them to have enough to do but I don't want to overstuff the cage...

    Terrified to Come Out of Cage

    Hi everyone! It's been a while. The good news is, since I last posted, my budgies came off of their meds for AGY and they appear to be doing much better. They're eating more, and are wayyy noisier, making tons of chatter and singing! Not that I'm complaining ;) My current dilemma is that I'm...

I'll post photos once I get further into it, as I'm just now beginning, but for now, I have a couple questions to make sure what I'm using is safe for my little guys :-) 1) Any recommendations for where I can get some budgie safe...

    How much millet should you give a budgie?

    How much Millet should I give my budgie? I'v been feeding him off and on the same spray for a couple of hours, I just gave him a final piece. Also I wondered if I should give him it once a week or everyday?

    Korea Budgies!

    Hi guys! I was going through my files and found some budgie pictures from when I went to Korea in March and thought I'd share. Some of them had such cute color combinations! :fairy2: These were all taken at a place called Aqua Planet Ilsan (아쿠아 플라넷 일산)! Ilsan is in Goyang and is northwest of...

    Megabacteria :-(

    Hi everyone! Long time no see. My budgies went in today for their first avian vet visit. Their physical exam went really well and the vet estimated my boys are around 3-4 months old :) But after running the fecal gram stain test, she said the sample came back positive for megabacteria. I'm...

    Is this a good diet for budgies?

    Hi everyone, I am looking for some advice regarding my budgies’ diets. I give them ZuPreem fruit blend pelleted food as a daily diet staple.

    Boy or Girl?

    I'm talking about the Budgie in my profile picture and in this picture. I'm going to the store again soon to see them and will try to take a clearer picture then, but I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell through this? It look like a female cere.

    Is my girl too small?

    So I am hoping to breed my Budgie girl, Mabel, with her partner Benji, but I am concerned about her size. She is very small for a budgie, but 100% healthy. She weighs about 33g, but is way smaller than Benji or Charlie, who both weigh 35g. I just worry that she may be too small to pass eggs.
