    My parakeet couple keeps fighting D:

    I've had 2 budgies for about 2 years. The male (Kiwi) is about 2 years old and the female (Sarah) is about 7 years old. They mate with each other every once in a while, but I'm pretty sure Sarah is too old to produce eggs anyway. Recently I've noticed them fighting: Kiwi will be trying to woo...

    Egg yolk on budgie's head

    Hi, I'm not sure how I should clean egg yolk off my budgie's head. :confused: I'd appreciate some advice. My budgie, (Paris), is semi-tame but she doesn't really like to be touched (anywhere). It's too cold to give shower her. The only idea I have is to feed her some wet spinach. Thanks! :)

    Do birds care about you using the computer for things like Zoom calls?

    I am considering getting a pet bird, but I have heard that trying to talk on the phone can cause some issues. Is this the same with having a computer and being on a call with other people with a microphone and headphones? Does it being on speakers help? I would want to have them by me at my desk...
