She can’t sort of try and flutter away a little further than she used to but it seems like her long flight feathers just won’t grow! And when they do grow...

    Budgie is looking sick, what do I do?

    I got my male budgie Sky about a year ago. Just today we noticed he was very sleepy during the day.
