    Hey I have a quick question I’m not sure what to do. So my budgie’s droppings have looked a bit weird for a while.

    Antibiotic Precautions and Budgie Can't Fly?

    Hiyo, I have a little baby budgie named Phoenix. He's a baby, bright pink cere and he's changed his cap feathers but he can't really fly. His feathers are shorter than my other budgies and the most I've seen him "fly" is more like gliding a low distance (like my thigh when I'm sitting on the...
