    Does my Budgie like me?

    I’ve had him for 4-5 days now, he’s still pretty quiet I’ll hear him talking to himself a little but I’ve barley ever heard him talking, he eats from my palm and was landing on my arm when he was unsure where to land, when he’s eating millet he’s not bothered about my hands being around but he...

    How do I get budgies to trust me

    I've had 2 budgies for about two weeks, and they seem not to trust me at all. They keep turning their backs on me and when I get too close, they sometimes try to fly into the cage. Is this normal or should I do something about it? How do I make 2 budgies trust you? Thanks.

    Nervous new baby budgie

    I'm thrilled to be welcoming Peri, a 7-week-old budgie, but wanted to get more experienced members' advice on what to do for the first few weeks to make him comfortable and happy and friendly. He was handfed but seems extremely nervous - he stays in one spot for hours at a time and I'm worried...

    After Blizzard passed away, I have missed having two budgies chirping and playing together all day. So now, three months later, I have brought home Pickle! He is half English budgie and half regular budgie. He hatched on 12/20/20 and just came home yesterday. Right now he is in quarantine, but...

    My budgie isn't drinking water

    My 3-6 month old budgie (the pet store didn't tell us the exact age) has been with for about 3 days now. I've noticed he hasn't been drinking, but is eating just fine. I haven't seen the water level change every time I change it but I tried to feed him some apple to give him some moisture from...

    Update on my new bird!

    This is my budgie Tiki. A few months ago, I was worried about his beak and also about how to get closer with him so I posted here! I got so much feedback and I am thankful for everyone's advice. His beak is definitely better! I am still confused about his gender - but I believe it's a male...

    New budgie! Some questions

    Hello. I'm sure there are thousands of this type of posts. I think I've read all of them. But I still feel hopeless... or at least, I'm not sure what would be right for me to do. I got my budgie on 11th of October. He's a male. He's always been distant. For 5 days he refused to eat. He...

    Pictures Blizzard

    Blizzard came home yesterday! So cute! Some questions: 1. How long should I quarantine? (Kiwi and Blizzard were both bred, raised, and sold at the same store, this store would not intentionally sell you a sick bird and all parrots are hand-raised.) 2. Blizzard has five clipped...

    Should I add another budgie?

    I am in a bit of a predicament. I currently have two budgies, Luna (a female) and Indigo (a male). Indigo just went through his first molt and I believe Luna is around six months old. They are very happy, active, noisy and playful. They seem to be very fond of one another, consistently feeding...
