- One Lutino Budgie <3
Hi! I'm new to bird keeping, and yesterday I finally got myself a lovely little lutino budgie named Sunshine! Right now she's in a small carrier cage (which I feel bad about) but I got her on vacation so she'll have to wait for the bigger cage sitting at home. I'm planning to ween her onto pellets later. I only bought her yesterday so I understand that she's scared, but I am a LITTLE worried. She hasn't made any attempts to eat or drink yet. I'm scared that she's getting dehydrated. Granted she hasn't really done anything but sit so far, but is this normal? Should I be doing something to encourage her to drink, or will that scare her more? Thanks for any advice!
