    How to tame two budgies

    Hey everyone! I got my original budgie 2 weeks ago and she was bonding with me. She didn’t step up yet but she knew not to be scared. I got her sister from the same breeder 2 days ago. They get along fine and they’re happy and all but my original budgie has forgotten the bond with me. She runs...

    Night frights

    So my budgies had a night fright when I accidentally bumped their cage, and it was pretty scary. What do you do when this happens? Usually I turn on the light and take off the cover(although I only cover when the light is on) and try to talk in a soft voice, but is there anything else I can do...

    Enrichment outside the cage

    Sprinkles and quierido are bored:meh: if I let them out they go to the same places and preen. But I want them to have a FUN time out of the cage so they can play, get ecxersise and use their brain power!! Inside their cage it's a toy store with a bunch of varied perches but what about outside...

    Baby Budgies with foot issues

    Hi, just after a bit of advice. We have two young Budgies both with the same issue. They have been on the floor since leaving the nest box and struggle to perch. It seems they are only able to grip with/move one foot hence why they’re struggling. We took them to our local avian vet on Monday...

    How do I get my bird to accept scritches

    All I want is for my budgie Quierido to accept some scritches on the neck and on the head without him feeling uncomfortable, how do I get him to warmup or at least see if he will warmup to it? I don't want to try this with my other budgie because she diffinetly isn't interested in it at all, but...

    How to move 4 budgies to new house 4 hours away!

    Hey guys, so my husband and I are moving! Our new house is about 4-4.5 hours away. Should I move all four birds in one container? And what should I use? I have a backpack but they don’t like it/ it would be hard to put all four in. I also have the first cage I ever housed two of them in. What...

    How to prevent breeding

    Hello! I am very new to this and I'm not sure if this is even where I ask questions, but today I got my very first pet budgies! They're both siblings, but I was told they couldn't determine the gender since they're too young, and then it dawned on me that what would happen if they turned out to...

    Hello, my two budgies sleep in my room, I cover their cage with a bed sheet. But in the morning, cage cover on or off, they start angry chirping and fly every where crazy until I either leave the room or let them out. They don't stop. It's like a habit now!!! I can't wake up peacefully and I...

    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...

    :budgie5:: I do not currently have a photo of Opal, COMING SOON! :budgie6:: This is Layla, often known as the alien. She is extremely tame and flighted. Her gender isn't determined yet, so a DNA sexing may need to occur. :budgie7:: Chiku is a semi tame budgie. His mutation is considerably hard...
