    First of all, please be kind. Secondly, yes I know I did a stupid thing. SO... this tale starts with a budgie.

    Male budgie parakeet flicking wings up every 3-5 seconds

    I'll try to keep this short and simple yet still as informative as I can, as I honestly have never seen something like this before. I've given up researching and calling the place I got him from (a very good place who loves their birds mind you, they just have no clue) and resorted to making a...

    Diet advice and homemade daily feed mix

    I recently took in a budgie from a family that didn’t want him anymore and was planning on abandoning him. I have been reading about budgie care needs. I see that pellets are strongly recommended but I live in a very remote part of my country and can’t afford to ship pellets here. The pet store...

    I got a second budgie and my first one doesn't like me anymore

    Hello! A year ago I adopted a budgie and everything was going well. On the third day when I first tried giving her millet, she immediately jumped to my hand and ate it. Many months later she seemed to be getting lonely so I adopted another budgie. Ever since then, she won't fly to my hand...

    I adopted a bonded pair of Budgies. I had no intention of breeding or anything like that, however, they came with their cage and all accessories, which included a little nest in the cage.

    Urgent Budgie With Weird Symptoms

    Hey all, I am a semi-new bird owner. I got Basil (male parakeet) almost a year ago in March, and he's been a healthy and happy little guy up to this point. He was from a local pet store, so he's a bit skittish and I don't handle him too often, but he's very energetic and loves to fly around and...

    'Tiel & Budgie Diet

    I'm wondering if a mix (in all equal parts) of Zupreem Natural Pellets, Harrison's Adult Lifetime, Dr. Harvey's Colossal Cockatiel Blend, and Top's Parrot pellets is a healthy well rounded diet for my cockatiels and budgie to eat? Of course they will still get fresh fruits and veggies as well as...
