english budgie

  1. Sammy27


    Hello all! I’m glad to be here. I’m the proud mom of 6 feathered friends—-Cumulo (English Budgie), Sirius (green cheeked conure), Orion (Quaker parrot), Phantom (nanday conure), Luna (half moon conure), and Duke (dusky conure). Birds are the BEST.

    Is my budgie dying or just sick? (Sad update #3)

    My budgie is somewhere in between 5 to 6 years old. I am currently away from home on a trip and will drive back today. My dad sent me a message saying our oldest budgie, Felice, is sick. He showed us on video that she was sitting at the bottom of the cage panting. Apparently she's been in that...

    Where to find hand fed English Budgies in or near South Dakota?

    I’m looking for a young male to keep as a loved pet. I’m willing to drive out of state, but not too far. Thanks!

    English Budgie "Puff"

    I was wondering why all English budgies have that puff like feather-do? Is it something concerning genetics because Australian budgies do not have it?

    What do you think about this couple?

    I am about to purchase this couple, however, I don’t know much about English budgies since I only own lovebirds. Are they English budgies? I know its a silly question.

    English Budgie Nesting Box Size

    Hi Everyone, I'm new to the group. We became owners of a pair of English budgies less than a week ago. To our knowledge they are approximately a year old. We set them up in a big cage, etc., but they seem to be feeling the amour of spring. LOL. They have a "no mess" feeder which is about...

    Urgent Hi All

    Hi All, I have had 2 budgies (one American and one English) who went away the same way this year - seizures and then stretching out their legs while taking their last breath. The first was bought from a pet store - he was housed together with a lovebird and another budgie. His colours were...

    Urgent French Moult- Sad Update Post #8

    I'm hand raising two Budgies and I'm fairly positive one has French Moult. They're about 5 weeks old now. From what I understand, it is caused by a virus. So far I've just been trying to keep my baby warm and well hydrated. I've also alerted the breeder so he can take precautions needed on his...

    Petting a baby budgie

    I have two baby English Budgies I am hand raising. They're both about a month old. The one I think is female is not a fan of being petted and the one I believe is male just loves being scratched around the head. He will lift all his little feathers, happily. If he loves to be petted now, will he...

    Help choosing

    I am currently hand raising three cockatiels and two English Budgies. I am contemplating keeping one of the birds. I know that typically female cockatiels are more quiet and cuddly than males and that is exactly what I'm looking for. I haven't had any of the birds DNA sexed, but through other...
