    Broken Trust with my Budgie

    Hello! I have a Budgie named Blair, who if I must say, is an INCREDIBLY stubborn bird. :D When I first got her it took several months until she began to trust me, and we bonded very closely. She would fly up to me, sit on my head, try and eat my hair, it was lovely (except from the hair thing)...

    Hiya, this is my sweet budgie called vinnie, she’s quite small and can’t fly very well due to bad wing clipping in her past, my other two budgies are perfectly healthy and play all the time. However vinnie, does not like to bathe, or doesn’t really play, she’ll chew on something a little and...

    Quiet Budgie

    Hi, so my budgie Percy post his cage mate a few weeks back (his cage mate was a lot older and we had only recently got Percy). Since then, we have bought two new budgies to keep him company, which we thought he would love due to his previously outgoing nature with the last bird. (Note, these new...

    Crusty Cere

    Hi! This is my 3 month old budgie Percy, and his cere is appearing crusty. I was wondering if anyone had any advice as to what this may be? He is acting completely normal, eating and drinking as much as usual. When we originally let him out to fly for the first time, a few weeks back, he crashed...

    do budgies need a friend?

    I got my budgie a few days ago now (not the one I posted in another post as he had gone) Not sure if they do better in pairs? I spend about 3/4 hours a day with him and he has about 5/6 hours out his cage a day. He’s very chilled out his cage and tends to nap a lot. Not sure if a friend is needed

    Picky Budgies...

    How can I encourage my budgies to eat more than just millet and trill? They're so fussy... Bless them. I keep offering green food and fruit but they're afraid of healthy food, it seems (a bit like me!) They're not tame or socialised to human contact, so I can't offer food from my hands.

    Breeding Budgies

    Hi, long time no see! I recently acquired two young budgerigars, a male and a female. Their origins are a bit of a mystery as I "rescued" them from a display in a barber's shop window and neither of the pair has a leg ring. They eat trill and millet, love mineral blocks and cuttlefish bone. I...
