    Indoor aviary cohabiting

    Hi, so I’ve recently decided to convert my new dog crate into a sort of indoor aviary as my dog doesn’t use it. It’s 94cm wide, 55cm wide and 61cm deep. And as there is an opening at the top i plan on putting a cage with similar height and depth measurements on top. I have 2 budgies, 2...

    Bird growing distant

    Ive had my tiel since she was 2 weeks old .Now she is 1 year and 5 months old.She used to be very much tamed and liked to hang out with me all day long. Since back then she is the only bird I owned I could pay it a lot of attention. She follows most of my commands and didn't bite. Just one...

    Hey budgie owners! I hope you and your birds are doing well! I have 1 female and 1 male budgie. I was never planning on breeding the two (in fact, I thought my female was a male until I caught them doing the deed ). My female has laid many eggs in the past few months, but a LOT of them fell down...

    Even after the many videos I've watched, I'm still not completely sure if my budgie is a male, so I'm asking here. What are all the possible ways to identify a budgies gender, from their appearance to the way they sound to the way they act. Looking at its cere isn't enough, I'm still confused if...

    Pictures LJ’s Cage Set-up

    @Zara suggested I do this thread so here. Lemon Jade (goes by LJ) is a estimated 8-9 year old male budgie. Recently he started having issues with his feet (pressure sores and mild bumble foot), the sores have since clear up but I am in prevention mode now. I believe the root of his issues is...

    Budgie Lump on Foot

    Hi, my 4 year-old budgie has what seems to be swollen foot. He's happy and active otherwise (no change in behaviour or body language either), and doesn't have any balance issues or loss of strength, but there's a lump on it. He had a tumble off the perch and slammed into the bottom of the cage...

    My budgie's friends caught by cat, now she is depressed, what should I do?

    I had three young budgies (around 30-40 days old). I handfed them all but they just started eating by themselves. I always kept them out of the cage, they wandered and flew within my whole room all the time. But they slept in the cage at night. These three budgies were always together, they ate...

    Almond on budgies.

    So, I was wondering if my budgies could have almonds, they are NOT the sweet type tho. My mom said to soak them before "I" ate to get rid of whatever toxin was in them, but I was thinking there would still be this so called toxin in the almond, enough to hurt my birds not me. So is it alright...

    So I have a female budgie who usually loves trying new foods. I left her at a friends house (they took good care of them) for a week, and when I got her back I have monitored her for the past 2 days. It seems like my girl has suddenly stopped eating pellets, or less, she does still eat...
