I am blown away by your kindness and dedication, and by our members' knowledge and helpfulness. What a wonderful place this is. I can't recall a more rewarding story, and I can't wait to follow your girl's journey to a happy recovery.
Are you thinking of a name yet?
Something resilient and beautiful would be a nice inspiration...

Re: Found a parakeet , will she survive?

For a name I'm thinking maybe Star, because she certainly is one! Budgies are so wonderful, so tiny and fragile yet so full of fighting spirit. This little one has found her champion in you Amsterdam, God bless you both!

Re: Found a parakeet , will she survive?

Thanks for keeping us updated on little Hayat’s progress, you both sound completely awesome! It’s wonderful to have a good news story like yours when there’s so much sadness in the world. Whatever happens from here you have shown her such love and kindness and you have my admiration!

Re: Found a parakeet , will she survive?

What a beautiful name! Have you tried various cooked vegetables, such as lentils, garbanzos (chickpeas) etc? Just served plain!

Re: Found a parakeet , will she survive?

That actually may not be Scaly Face, as in the after-bath photo her beak doesn't look effected. It's impossible for anyone to diagnose her through photos, and that's why it's so difficult to give you advice, because if she has Scaly Face or some other type of mite infestation they won't go away and will only get worse without proper treatment; if it's not a mite infestation and you treat her for mites, it's not going to help whatever the real issue is...So it's tough. Mites are definitely likely though, based on the conditions and circumstances in which you found the bird...

*****One very important note that you need to take very, very seriously with such a small, sick Budgie...If the medication that you have coming to you is Ivermectin, which is the appropriate treatment for most mite infestations in birds, you absolutely must be EXACT about the dose that you give the bird, whether given orally, by injection, or topically on the bird's skin, doesn't matter, it must be EXACT! Ivermectin is an extremely strong, dangerous, and toxic poison, and it has killed many a pet due to the too high a dose (I've seen birds, reptiles, and rodents killed by too much Ivermectin, it's nasty stuff, but unfortunately it's necessary and the best we have currently to treat certain parasites)...So you are probably going to have to find a scale of some kind to weigh the Budgie, as the Ivermectin dosage is based on weight, as are most anti-parasitic medications. And with such a small bird, it only takes a single milligram too much of Ivermectin or other antiparasitic medications to kill the bird. So just be extremely careful, and be extremely exact in your dosing...

Thanks for the advice i agree did you took a look on the first pic i posted? The legs were horrible and they seem to be cured under her beak theres still this hard looking thingy but i agree with you tho. The meds are here in 2 weeks if she looks better or even maybe get cured should i still use the meds? Thanks for the time
