    Budgie That Gurgles

    Hello! So, I have two little adorable birds, and they are specifically budgies. One of my budgies, we’ll call her S, has been having this issue with her throat (?) I am unsure, but it sounds like she’s trying to keep a lot of mucus down. When I got my other budgie, we’ll call him N, he always...

    Budgie and Quaker problems

    Ever since one of my budgies passed, my other budgie has been trying to hang out with my Quaker. I don’t let them out of the cage together because I don’t want Lemonade (my budgie) getting hurt, but they sit with each other through the cage bars (Lemonade on the outside, Milo on the inside) all...

    My budgie is regurgitating on his bell?

    Hi there, my male budgie Arei is hormonal ( first time ) and I am not sure on what to do. Whenever I take his entire toy out to clean because of the mess on it, he follows after it and screams / chirps very loudly almost sounding like he’s agitated, but then the second he is near it he calms...

    HELP!! IS HE SERIOUSLY SICK OR JUST MOLTING?!

    Hey, I'm talking about Norman, my a little over 2yrs old budgie. He's a boy. He's always been a bird that molts a lot, but it was light shedding for the most part. I can't remember exactly when, but he stopped molting. He was normal other than that. Just like 2 or so days ago he's been losing...

    Force feeding tips?

    I have to force feed my budgie some medication, and I was wondering the best way to do it? I’ll need to do this twice a day with a syringe (two medications with a smaller tip syringe, one with a fairly large tip syringe). So, what’s the most comfortable/least stressful way to do this? I’d like...

    How do I get budgies to trust me

    I've had 2 budgies for about two weeks, and they seem not to trust me at all. They keep turning their backs on me and when I get too close, they sometimes try to fly into the cage. Is this normal or should I do something about it? How do I make 2 budgies trust you? Thanks.

    Maybe i should have said hello first... oops

    I guess I just jumped right on here with questions about my bird with zero intro. Still hoping he'll be better with a close watch, bland warm foods, and a warm humidity control area until someone can see him or it clears up... Anyways hello! So glad I could find forms with bird care because so...

    Urgent Budgie possibly getting ready to lay eggs?

    My budgie has as of recently (past day or two) been showing signs that could possibly be her wanting to lay eggs, or her being sick. She’s been sitting in one place more and sleeping a lot, though she’s happily preening as normal. She hasn’t been eating as much even though she usually has a good...

    Driftwood: safe or not??

    Recently, I have been struggling to find good perches for my budgies since most of the ones I've found are mostly in the same shape. I want to get them better perches to better exercise their feet. I found some driftwood online in good shapes for my budgies, I can easily do some handwork and...

    Why did my baby budgie suddenly die?

    On Friday morning, I found one of my parakeets, Gustavo, dead at the bottom of the cage with no signs of trauma. His feet were clinging to the cage bars and his head was tilted to one side. I am having a necropsy preformed and I have scheduled a checkup for the other parakeets just in case he...

    Budgie hangs out at the bottom of cage and other questions

    So I heard budgies or other birds stay at the bottom of their cage if there's a problem. Cloudy is a healthy budgie and goes to the top of his cage to eat and sleep, but for the majority of the day stays at the bottom. I think it may be because he loves the sola ball toys down there, but I'm not...

    Urgent Budgie acting off

    So, I may be overreacting, but my budgie was sitting very still on my floor so I went to check if she was ok and she didn’t really react to me coming over, which is weird for her because she isn’t very tame. She let me scoop her up to check for injures (which is also weird, because she never...
