Bird Type: Budgie/Parakeet

Budgie eggs

My budgies had eggs before but after they were 5 weeks old the mom started to bite them and I moved them to a different cage. Now they still trying to have more but every time she lays eggs she either eats them or she leaving them outside the nest !

Poorly budgie

l keep 3 make buddies in a cage together sharing food water dishes. During the first lockdown when I got to the end of a bag of food it was stuck to the bag. I did not scrape the seed loose but fed the birds on the free moving seed as we were in covid […]

Parakeet health

I have three adopted parakeets in quarantine. They are rescued from a hoarding situation in a basement. They were declared healthy by at vet at the shelter and a group facial exam showed nothing. If you were giving these birds a wellness checkup, what would you check for considering their prior filthy living conditions?


Actually I am not going ask any Question now.. I am replying to say that my little budgie has started acting normally and she is now eating the food.Actually for half an hour she was not eating anything. But now she is well. Thanks for the concern😊

My English budgies who are over 2 years old, are not sitting on theirs 8 eggs during the night, but sit on them all day. This is their first time laying eggs. I saw them breeding many times. Now, I wonder if the eggs ( hoping they are fertile ) will still produce baby, since […]

Budgie regurgitating

I have a male budgie about 14 months old. He has started regurgitating. Most of the time its only 3-5 seeds but occasionally its more forceful and he regurgitates and the seeds go everywhere. Its not every day. Is it just him maturing or is it a problem? He’s active, eats well, droppings normal.

My budgie won’t play, chirp, or barley drink water. I change it’s water fresh every day, feed it, and it’s eyes keeping closing and keeps sleeping, plus 1. It’s not a new bird 2. it’s acting very lazy, it’s getting hard for it to step up ;( , is it sick or not ? ps. […]

Feeding Nutri-Berries & Pellets

Are Lafeber pure pellets any better nutritionally than Lafeber Nutri-berries? What’s the best way to get older budgies to eat pellets? I read budgies eat insects in the wild but I assume feeding budgies insects is NOT necessary given the protein in pellets/Nutri-berries?
