My mom refuses to believe seeds are unhealthy for birds and I'm trying to prove we should get pellets, but she keeps saying, if it's not food why do they put it up on shelves in petco.. please help me convince her
My budgie always has one of his eyes closed and occasionally scratches it. Could there be something wrong with his eye or just budgie being budgie?
I had to cut to a moment in which they got loud enough to record, and here they were also bickering, but before this was a minute-long no-contact staring contest in which they made this very quiet "eeeehhh" noise. It's a bit like they're challenging the other to do the first move, or saying "you better get off or I'll get angry! you don't want to see me angry!" They do it now and then. Do your birds "growl" too?
How long do I keep my budgie in horny jail? Caught them trying to mate and immediately separated them. Only now I realize how hormonal my male budgie is, I thought he was simply being playful. Anyway, I'd like to know how long should I keep them separated? I know about hormones regulation, but I don't know if there are visible cues that he's doing better. Right now, they're still trying to regurgitate to each other (although separated) it's only been a day.
He always sees my other budgie playing with toys and seen her do this for 3 months. He still doesn't attempt to play with anything or do anything. What can I do?
Hi, I haven't get my budgie yet but planning to very soon. I have ordered my cage, probably arriving next week. Meanwhile I have some newbie questions, appreciate all help.
In Singapore, where can I best buy a budgie? Any tamed and weaned breeders for recommendation? Can PM.
Is Acrylic Spill Proof Auto Feeder an absolute no-no? Why? (Image included on what I have ordered)
