    Does my budgie closing his eyes necessarily mean he is sick?

    Hello! I'm a long time bird fan, but a very new and inexperienced bird owner. My family recently got me two budgies to help us cope with the loss of another bird we had been caring for (long and sad story, I may post about him in the Highway to Heaven area). When I was talking to them to help...

    Hello everyone! I haven’t posted a thread in a while, and for those of you who know, Pastel was sick but she seems to have recovered fully.

    My recently found a young budgie outside at our neighbourhood a day ago. We're assuming its been taken care of by someone else before because it went to my dad when he reached his hands out.

    Pictures I'm worried about my baby budgie. Please help.

    I'm new here, so I'm sorry if there's a format I'm supposed to follow. (S)he, who I've named Momo, was born a little over 2 weeks ago. I did everything I could to not intervene and just let them look after my budgies' kids themselves. The first blow came when a week old kid fell from the nest...

    Pictures Cage Setup For Trip

    I'm going on a trip pretty soon, so I redid the birds cages. Hopefully it will give them something to do. I got some sandpaper perches, which I know are not great, but I think I'll use them for a little bit. The budgies especially have long toenails. Also... Cornhusk ball or no corn husk ball...

    Should I move my budgie out of the flocks cage?

    Hi! So, currently, I have three budgies in the same flight cage (Percy, Calypso and Grover). Calypso and Grover seem to be more bonded to one another, as Percy used to be bonded with our other budgie, Nico, who passed away last year. At the time, I thought Percy would benefit from living with...
