    Budgie stargazing for around 3 and a half weeks, what else should I do to help him?

    Okay, so let’s start this off: I’m a university student who absolutely ADORES birds and grew up around parakeets, so I have a little bit of knowledge when it comes to maintaining their needs. So around two and a half months ago, me and my boyfriend made the decision to adopt these two birds...

    Can I have 2 budgies and a Turq parakeet in the same cage?

    I recently rescued 3 birds (2 budgies and 1 turquoisine parakeet). They have been living in extremely small cages right next to each other for years. I feel horrible for the Turk as she is all alone and I would love for her to be around other birds (there is nowhere near me to get another turq)...

    Parakeet suddenly freaking out? (Update)

    Hello, I'm a fairly new parakeet/budgie owner and my little guy has been kind of spooking me lately.
