    Pictures Curious about my Budgies tail feathers

    This is my Budgies tail feathers, the rest of his tail is fine, there's just a gap in between where there isn't any feathers. Is this just a normal part of moulting or something else? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    When does sneezing become a concern?

    Hey all! My budgie, Genji, has been sneezing extremely frequently (10-20+ times a day!!) but the thing is, they're 90% dry sneezes. Occasionally he has a wet sneeze that is completely clear and doesn't run. I've checked for anything in his nares and he's totally clear. There's no sneezing fits...

    Looking for Reputable Toy Brands

    Hello! I want to buy my budgies some nice new toys, and just wanted to know what brands I should consider and those I should avoid. I‘m iffy about buying things on Amazon, for fear of them being made out of low-quality material that could poison my birds. (Even plain wooden ones like these. I...

    Help in taming? Worried I lost trust :(

    Hello everyone! as my name suggests I am very new to birds. I have done YEARS of research so I felt prepared when I brought home two budgies who had been rehomed by a family. Their owner passed of a stroke. I love these guys so much and have upgraded their cage and eating habits. But today I...

    Budgie noises

    Not sure if this was my budgie or a mouse who made these noises, but it started around 5 am when I heard strange squeaking and small sneezing I think. I shined a light in the cage and noticed one of my birds eggs hatched but I cannot see the baby and am not sure if the strange squeaking came...

    Did anyone here have their budgerigar's lipoma removed successfully?

    So, over the course of months, I've realized that one of my budgie's lipoma has actually grown by a small margin, even though I feed her the vet prescribed seed mix, along with vegetables. Our vet said that surgical removal of her lipoma was extremely risky for an animal her size, but I'm...

    Help! Mated budgie pair not eating!

    Hi, I have mated pair of budgies (first time parents) who so far have 4 healthy newborn babies. But just recently the male has almost completely stopped eating and seems to be looking for something, although I'm utterly baffled to what it is. Since the male is not eating, he won't feed the...

    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...
