    My 1 month old budgie has lump on it's chest or crop.

    Since it was 1 week old it likes to eat a lot and never closes it's beak even when I'm done feeding it. Lately I've noticed that it has a lump on it's chest or crop. Is this good or bad? What should I do?

    Blast From The Past! My First Budgie!

    Ok so…… this is me we think the year was 1981 as I would have been around 3 or 4 years old with our pet budgie “Joey” sitting on my head. He used to love to fly around the house then land on my head. My Mum swears she didn’t make me wear this jumper on purpose which I think she did as it matches...

    Trying to get work done, budgies had different ideas!

    So really trying to get some work done today and had my iPad set up on a stand and cage close… but Stevie & Ronnie had other ideas…. My iPad was much more appealing than their open cage! The both ended up falling asleep on it and I didn’t get much work done for the next half hour or so!!! This...

    A Friend For Stevie

    Stevie has a new friend besides me!!! Meet Ronnie! Also named after a Schitts Creek character! I know training / taming two young ones together will be more of a challenge but I love a challenge and love knowing what a wonderful life these two will have with me!

    Budgie loves to snuggle in a towel

    Hi, my 3-4 month old Budgie Stevie (not hand reared but so far pretty placid…so far as I am home all day with her everyday!) loves to snuggle in a towel!

    Can't take care of budgie anymore, what to do now?

    So, I'm 18 and I've had a lone budgie for a few years now and ever since my aunt has officially moved in with her two cats at my parents house 7 months ago (against my wishes), taking care of my pet has been real tough. It doesn't help that I've recently been working full-time and going to be...

    Swallowed unhusked seed?

    Hi. A couple days ago while hand feeding my budgie, I mixed some Harrison’s super fine pellets into the formula because I heard that as baby budgies wean, their parents will start to make the food they regurgitate more solid (I’m not going to do this anymore because I don’t want to risk...

    Male or female budgie?

    Hi! We’ve been hand feeding this baby budgie and he’s almost weaned now. We’ve been referring to him as a boy. But now we are unsure! He seems to act like a female, but then again, he’s only around 7 weeks old. Also, I have no idea what his variety or coloring is. Let me know what you think!

    What are some toys that my birds can easily shred?

    Does anyone have any specific toys, not materials, that my birds can shred easily? Something similar to the bird kabob would be great! My two budgies love anything that falls apart quick

    How do I help my budgie be more independent?

    Peri has recently started to climb all over his cage in (I assume) desperation to come out any time he sees or hears me. It's getting to the point where he's ruining his feathers climbing the bars and I worry about him not eating as he spends all his time running around. I have to leave the room...

    My grieving budgie wants my constant attention

    My budgie Sky has always bossed my other budgie Kiwi around, who has recently passed away. :( He now shouts for attention for the majority of the day, starting early. I feel like he is trying to train me now, and I'm not sure that he's happy with just a couple of training sessions a day. I was...

    Is it crop burn?

    We just finished hand feeding our around 5 week old budgie. While we were feeding him, he leaped towards the spoon and ate some of the formula when it was too hot. We took it away immediately. It was only a little and at 113° Fahrenheit. Is this enough to cause crop burn? Is there anything we...
