    Looking for rehome for my 2 pet Parakeets/Budgies

    (Irving, TX, USA) I currently have two young-adult male budgies named Dodo (green) and Berry (blue). I adore them so much but I came to a sad realization that it is better to re-home them. I am guilty of even thinking about it, but it isn’t fair for them otherwise. Long story short, I live...

    Duct tape?

    I was wondering if duct tape is safe to use in the same room as my budgie. The thing that I'm really worried about is more of the smell than anything. She wouldn't be able to get to it, she wouldn't be around it in the respect that she would be able to step on it or fall on it or anything like...

    Recently Purchased/Rescued Some Budgies

    Hi! I’m new here, please let me know if I’m doing anything wrong. I recently rehomed/rescued two budgies, Sam and Pippin. I’m fairly sure Pippin’s a male, but I’m not certain on Sam’s gender. If anyone could help identifying/confirming their genders that would be awesome. We purchased them from...

    My bird hitting her bell

    I've noticed that when my bird plays with her bell she plays with it rather aggressively, is that normal? She will slam her beak into it and it seems like she's almost attacking it. It looks like she keeps going back and forth from playing with it to fighting with it.

    My parakeet came up to my hand and perched. I have been reading online that to have a budgie get used to you hand, you start with you hand outside of the cage for a few days, then slowly transfer inside getting slightly closer each time. This is my forth day with her and the first day with the...

It's only been a day but i'm worried and...

    Live Plants for budgies

    Hello again everyone! I would like to add a few live plants into my budgies’ cage. I feel as though it may be an enriching and exciting for them to have a new component in their cage other than new toys. Can anyone recommend some safe live plants for budgies? Thanks!

    Night Frights

    Hi all, I have another question regarding budgies. Lately one of my little guys has been experiencing night fights about once or twice a month. I believe it to be the same bird, but it is hard to be certain given that it is obviously dark. I have their cage covered at night with a dimly lit salt...

    Is this a good diet for budgies?

    Hi everyone, I am looking for some advice regarding my budgies’ diets. I give them ZuPreem fruit blend pelleted food as a daily diet staple. Once or twice a week I will give them a commercial seed blend as a treat, as well as some spray millet. My real questions regard what I prepare for them...
