    Cuddle or not

    Hello, I have a female budgie who think I were her mate, although I am her mom. She normally doesn’t allow anyone to cuddle her, but when I do, she is easily aroused.

    New budgie

    I'm a new owner of a budgie. I've had her for a few months now and bonding is tough. I've studied as much as I can and been very patient with her. But no matter what I do she's still scared to come close to me. I need some advise. I don't know what to do now.

    What's A Dwarf Budgie!?

    I've been offered a "dwarf budgie" from a breeder I've been conversing with for a couple of months. I'll be going round tomorrow to see his budgies and pick one out anyway. But I've never heard of a dwarf budgie. Does anyone have one? Could you show me a picture? I've tried researching them on...
