Is it wrong to trim a baby budgies toe nails?

 

If it is wrong, then why is it wrong to trim a baby budgies toe nails?

 

This is my answer to a question on Quora.

 

Editor’s note: Another answer about trimming a budgie’s toenails had advised against clipping their toes to avoid bloodshed.

 

By using a Rotary trimmer you can avoid cutting any birds nails to the quick by having total control in conjunction along with knowing proper restraint for small birds.

Do My Budgies and Cockatiels Feel Bored or Depressed With Their Life of Captivity?

Captivity is a relative term. I’m not relegated to my home but I still have to pay rent, go to work, pay taxes and perform all those duties that enable me to be a good neighbor and good citizen of the world.

If captivity is all that you know, is it really captivity? We have eight budgies, all rescues. We don’t have the background on any of them but we’ve kept them flighted, and recently started leaving the door open but most don’t ever leave the cage.

Does an Inherited Cockatiel With a Bald Spot in an Aviary Need Foraging Toys?

There is no singular cockatiel related to the title of this post. Aside from providing expert advice to caged bird keepers I also have a passion for Search Engine Optimization as well as improving how I communicate our ideas. Apparently, I am the vortex of a digitally feathered world.

So in these stories, we’re going to talk about four unique cockatiels and their circumstances. Should anyone in our audience inherit a cockatiel with a bald spot living in an aviary with lots of foraging toys – you’re welcome.

Question about Male parakeet.

Every time I put my arm in the cage he attacks it, or he flies at me when I look in the cage.

My female looks depressed like she would rather he move out. She use to be so happy. I got her first, then him a couple months after.

She would sing, and play with her toys. Now all she does is sit on the same perch, and doesn’t hardly move. He doesn’t seem to fight with her.

Gemma Parakeets and Cockatiels Mixing in Cage/Aviary

Hello!

 

We are loyal patrons of WCP and look forward to the Sunday brunch every week. Perhaps this topic has already come up, but it is a question about bird species.

 

We have 3 parakeets that get along well although they did not grow up together. All are rescues. We are thinking about adding a cockatiel to the family and are wondering about cages. So, the parakeets have a large cage (approx 2.5′ H x 2′ W X 1′ D) and we have a smaller cage (about 1.5′ HWD) that is just lying around empty.

 

First question: would a cockatiel require a separate cage or could they all sleep together in the same cage?

 

Second: Assuming that they cannot share a cage, would you recommend the keets in the smaller cage or leave them in their current habitat?

 

Third: Would cockatiels and parakeets be competitive/territorial in an open space (like an aviary)?

 

Thank you for any advice you have on this.

 

Cheers,

Gemma
