    My new cockatiel, Berry, is a bit reluctant to eat

    Hi everyone, I fetched my new baby yesterday:grey:. She is 4 months old and absolutely adorable! However, I think the shock of being in a different environment has made her quite scared. She hasn't been eating and drinking as much as I would like. I took her to the vet this morning for a...

    Budgies got out of outdoor aviary... How can I catch them?

    Hey. It's been a while since I posted on the forum but I have a BIG problem. So I built a really nice (if I do say so myself lol) outdoor aviary that I had 6 budgies and 4 zebra finches. They've been in there for a couple weeks now. About 2 nights ago something tried to get inside. Idk if it...

    (DALLAS TX) Very dire & urgent need of new home for budgies!

    (This is probably going to be long, sorry.) Hello. I am sad to say that my joining here is for help in a currently grave effort to rehome our 3 budgies. We are no longer able to care for them properly, and they are not doing well with us anymore. My husband had to get a work-at-home job after...

    Preening salon!

    I just wanted to share a video of my two budgies preening Parry. Franky has been in love with him for a while (I posted about that here too), and now Cesar joined in! They compete and even fight for him. :D They both want to preen and feed him constantly, so I have to cage them both or at least...

    Preparing perches for budgies?

    Yesterday I went to the Dandenong ranges and there was a little area where you could sit down and look into the forest. I was looking around and I saw a fallen over gum tree, so I snapped some sticks and branches off for my budgies. The branches have little areas with black spots that scrape...

    Can anyone help with identifying the gender?

    I know it's very early to tell. They are 6 weeks old siblings and their ceres look identical. Both have purple ceres with lighter rings around their nostrils. So what do you think - are they boys or girls? Or different? I somehow feel they are boy and girl (the worst case), but I'm not sure of...

    Connecting Cages

    Hey, has anyone here tried to connect cages together/succeeded? I would like two smaller cages on top of my flight cage to give my budgies more room to move around (since its bombed with toys, but they do get to spend the entire day out if they choose to). I'm also thinking about trying to...

    Hello, I am getting a shed in the next couple of weeks and I am going to put cages in it for breeding my chickens. I am also going to make the last part an aviary for cockatiels and budgies. It will be about 8' by 3' inside and there would be an additional 10' by 3' outside. I am wondering what...

    **Shocker** LuLu talked!

    Ok so today I was cleaning out all my bird cages and the budgies were being particularly noisy today. The way my room is setup (until I move into the new place) LuLu can pretty much get around the entire room without flying as her wings are REALLY clipped. LuLu is still settling in so she hasn't...
