    Female Budgie Ceres

    Just had a question about when female budgies’ cere change colour. Is there a certain age it’ll turn brown or can it happen anytime? Is common/normal for it to not happen for awhile?

    Flaky budgie cere

    Hi guys, I have two budgies, Kiwi (male - green) and Winter (female - blue) and I've noticed recently that they have flaky ceres. I know that the cere is supposed to look waxy and slight flaking is okay but I was wondering if this looks concerning to any of you? I was wondering after you’ve...

    Feathers above cere, could this be URTI?

    Hello all! I have four budgies. Luna (female, 3 years) and Sadie (female, 2 years) have some staining and "stiff" feathers that almost look like pins above their ceres. In the photo you can see it on Sadie. Luna (left of Sadie, white) has the same sort of marks and Frida (right of Sadie, green)...

    Crusty Cere

    Hi! This is my 3 month old budgie Percy, and his cere is appearing crusty. I was wondering if anyone had any advice as to what this may be? He is acting completely normal, eating and drinking as much as usual. When we originally let him out to fly for the first time, a few weeks back, he crashed...

    Is Snowy’s cere okay?

    It looks a bit odd — not the color, but it looks really crusty - more than usual. Is that normal?

    Budgie Ceres

    Hi y’all. I just went to a new petshop in my area and I noticed that some of budgies cere’s looked like this (picture). Anyway my question is is this hormonal or are they sick? They seem fine but their Ceres look horrible. I don’t know much about budgies though so I’m interested to know.

    Grumpy female budgie

    Ella has been very grouchy as of late! She was doing very well with coming out of her cage and stepping up, but now if I try to touch her she bites me. She also doesn’t want to come out at all. I leave the door open but she just stays on her perch. Is she just feeling hormonal? Her cere tends to...

    Urgent Crusty/broken cere? (Not urgent)

    Hello, My budgie has had a bit of build up on his/her (I’m not sure at this point) cere for the last couple months.. initially I did some research and decided that he must be a she and was just getting the normal crusty cere that females tend to get when they’re hormonal. Last night I went out...

    Lovebird having trouble pooping

    Só...my 9 year old lovebird seems to struggle to poop sometimes. I also don’t think she poops as often as a lovebird is supposed to. For the first time ever, Petey the female lovebird became eggbound earlier this year. She was put on Lupron shots for a couple months to help prevent her from...

    Taming/Cere?

    I've gotten my budgie, Navi, about two weeks ago, and I've started taming him. He goes onto my finger, but only if I put it close to his belly. And when that happens, he puts one foot on my finger until he steps up with the other (most of the time). I'm wondering what this is about. And another...
