    I've been trying to tame my budgie for a while now, but I am struggling. She gets spooked whenever I pass the cage, and nothing I do helps that. I've tried putting bits of millet into her food bowl when I pass, but I don't know if she eats them. She is comfortable with me until my hands do...

    Weird droppings again

    Last time I talked about Luke’s droppings on here he got off of his antibiotic treatment and that I no longer go to the vet I brought him to for his infection. His poops went back to normal and were normal for weeks. He has been on his probiotic and everything was good and I didn’t change...

    Is this a bruise?

    This week a noticed a reddish brown mark appear on Luke’s beak. The mark isn’t flaky or anything and it looks like it’s flat and apart of the beak. You can see another section of his beak is trying to grow so I think he might have hurt himself but I’m not sure. He does come out of the cage and...
