    Confused after the vet visit

    I brought one of my budgies to the vet today because she had dirty feathers around the vent and I have been worried about her increasing weight. They did an x-ray on her and diagnosed her with a lipoma. They understandably prescribed a diet. The prescribed seed mix seems to have the same...

    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.

Inside their cage it's a toy store with a bunch of varied perches but what about outside...
