    White poop please help.

    I noticed this morning that one of my budgies is pooping white and he's pooping more often than usual. I cleaned the cage and I've been watching him all day. He's been acting normal (singing, preening, eating, drinking, and playing). I've been observing his poop color throughout the day and...

    Growing seeds

    Since I have SO MANY wasted seeds, I decided to start growing them. They have made a beautiful grass. Wondering if it's ok to let the budgies eat and walk on them? Bird seed grass https://imgur.com/gallery/7GgCunk :greenyellow::whiteblue::white1::blue2::yellow2:

    Huge (small) Victory

    A little bit concerned about my little Yuna

    I bought Yuna this February from a local market and I love her to bits. She was just a baby put in with a small cage of adults, and she hasn't grown much bigger.
