    Another fid at the vet...

    Because of Kamara's damaged feet, and because she's become a free-range birdie who almost never has her door shut, I've been making an active effort to ensure that the room she's in is completely safe for her. Padded floors in case of falls, anything she can get her head stuck in either removed...

    Urgent Help!

    This evening, I saw that Blue, my green and blue budgie, had blood around his eye. I think that Holly, my white male budgie, has pecked at him. But Blue has blood on his claws as well. He has been acting pretty territorial recently. What do I do? Please help!
