    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...

    Stopping budgies from landing certain places?

    Hello! I hope this is the right place to post this. So, I have one of those canopy beds without drapes and my budgies keep trying to land on it, I wouldn’t have a problem with this except they sit at the perfect angle to poop on my sheets which obviously isn’t hygienic. They also climb onto my...

    I'm new here! I have a very lovely companion who came to me with the name "Blue". I feel strange calling him blue because he is very clearly green! I call him "Bloop", "Boo" and "Booboo", thinking it's close enough to what he has been called before. He is very sweet, calm most of the time, but...

    No more pellets left for my birds

    I ordered pellets for my budgies around 6 days before it ran out and the order said it would arrive in 3 days. There was a huge delay and it now says it will take 5 more days for the pellets to be delivered to my house. Unfortunately, there aren't many pet stores near my area and the ones that...

    Mealtimes for chop

    I've been feeding my budgies (2) bird chop in the morning and afternoon (along with giving them pellets in their food bowl and seeds as a treat). This is my first time as a bird owner and I'm just wondering, what time/ how many times should I feed my birds chop in a day? Should I continue...

    Urgent My Parakeet is constantly tail bobbing after laying eggs

    Hello, please help! My parakeet (Blue) has been laying an egg here or there over the past 2-3 weeks which wasn't an issue then. Recently she has developed a constant slow tail bobbing after the two recent eggs. I checked and she doesn't seem to be egg bound and her behavior is normal. It's just...

    Slow to change iris color

    Just passed our first year "gotcha" date for miss Potato. She still had some faintly visible barring on her head when I got her, so she's not too much older than a year, but her iris has been slow to change color. You can see a faintly gray ring in bright light, but it usually looks black. Is...

    I'm looking at a few different kinds of Sola toys on Amazon right now, and im stuck on which ones to choose because I'm not sure what's best for a budgie. They all say foot toys, and I'm not sure I've seen budgies use foot toys before Here are the links: https://a.co/d/9FmpFUb...
