My Budgie is Plucking and I Don’t Know Why?

Mary W. relates:

 

One of my budgies (male 2 years old) got a crop infection late Jan.
 
He was plucking at his abdomen.
The vet put him on antibiotics and had to keep him at the vet clinic for a week as my brother had a heart attack & died and the friend that I had taking care of my birds could not catch him (fully flighted) to give him meds.
When I got back 10 days later and picked up my guy from the vet-all of his chest feathers were gone!
I figured that once I got him back to his flock he would be ok.

How Do I Get My Girl Budgie to Like Her Own Cage?

Gloria W. writes:

Hello Mz Tobsing

I appreciate your advice on light therapy as that cured the hormone problem for my little girl parakeet.

I have two boys and one girl parakeet each with its own cage.

The little girl has a larger cage than the boys.

All the cages sit on tables.

Carol Wrote:

Mitch: I read on line something you wrote about the possibility of training adult budgies.

I have inherited two budgies – about 1-year-old.

They are in a cage and have never been trained.

They seem very happy with each other.

They are very active and chatty.

Will My Quaker Parrot Warm Up To My Cockatiel And Budgie

Katie L. Asks

Is there ever a chance my Quaker Parrot Blu will warm up to my other birds?

He just turned 1, I’ve had him since he was a baby.

We got Winnie the Cockatiel as a baby about 6 months after Blu and just a few weeks ago Chip the parakeet joined our flock.

Blu isn’t as aggressive w/Winnie at this point, but he used to stalk her.

He loved pulling a feather or biting her toes and as a result, Winnie is scared of Blu and little baby Chip.

My Budgies Beak Broke Off – Can I Fix It?

Stevie Van Zandt requested your answer

I have a rescue budgie, the top of his beak was almost totally gone, just barely hanging. We have NO vet in my area and nobody specializes in birds. I removed what was hanging and she seems ok, I made a “mush” for her to eat. Will the beak grow back?
