    Update on my new budgie Pastel!

    Hello everyone, As some might know I brought home a baby budgie yesterday. The day that went pretty well, she (or he) even ate millet out of my hand, moved around and chirped a little! However, right before it was time for her/him to sleep I noticed she/he had a red spot under her/his wings...

    So I’ve had my male budgie for almost a year now and I want to know if I should get a second one. My budgie, Bleu, has a strong bond with me but I’m scared that if I get another budgie, he won’t like me anymore. Is this true? Can someone help me?

    Hi from australia

    Hi, I am from australia and own one female budgie and just got our new cockatiel from the breeder 24 hours ago. They are in separate cages and will be some time before they meet out of cage. Our cockatiel is very scared and timid at this time but that is to be expected.
