    Hello everyone, there are my parakeet couples, I call them Sparrow Magpie. For a long time, I just kept them in a cage. But recently, I just think about releasing them to fly at home, but I don't know if they will be easily injured outside her cage, such as bruises, or accidentally eating...

    I need help!!

    I have a 1.5 year old burger and I’ve been meaning to teach him some tricks. Unfortunately, he does not understand the concept that he has to do something for treats. Whenever I try to train him he just goes right for the treat and gets aggravated when I don’t give it to him. How should I go...

    Territorial Budgie wants cage to himself

    Hi, I’ve had my blue budgie for almost 6 years. He had a cage mate until last year when he passed in the night. Until recently, he has been alone and actually kind of happier without a cage mate. He has a large cage more suited for 3-4 budgies to himself. A few days ago I got a lovely yellow...

    Budgie Not Wanting To Be Held

    I have had my budgie since mid May, and I love her. The only problem is that she doesn't really let anyone hold her. She actually seems to have gotten worse, not better. I looked up a method to get her to stop pecking, and it worked perfectly, but she has come up with a new tactic. Every time i...
