    Do you breed birds? If so then please notify me on how much a month old parakeet would be

  • We breed budgie parakeets. They aren’t ready for new homes until after they’ve been weaned from their handfeeding formula which is typically around 5-7 wks of age. Please visit our adoption page to see what is available and the prices:

    I have a question for you: where are you located?!!! I love your informational website! I have had two Budgies that were hand-raised and learned to talk. They lived relatively long lives. The last one we had was a rescue bird. She has been abused and was terrified of humans, or any kind of movement. She finally came to trust the family enough to come down to eat in front of us. She never let us touch her, until just before she passed away. We are hoping to get another young bird soon. Thank you.

    I love your family! I have 2 females and 1 male budgie and I’m hoping for a ready-to-breed male when one comes along 😉 Happy budgies!

    I have a large aviary with 7 budgies. I have just discovered one has a wing abnormality and flies very poorly. He crawls up the sides of the aviary to get around. The other birds torment him. I have left his cage inside the aviary with the door open. They stop him from coming out sometimes and go inside to intimidate him. Do I leave him in there as he is. Or should I bring him inside the house with us. I don’t want to do the wrong thing. I am very new at this. Any advice would be appreciated. Lindsay.

    October 7th I lost my beautiful mauve cobalt blue budgie he died of a stroke after falling of his perch he had epilepsy and the fits would come daily he was well feed and good food was given to him he was born this way the vet said he may have been this way he fell of his perch screaming and he hit the ground of the cage he could not get up he lost his eyesight he was blind he tried to go on his swing but I told him no and he listen he went to sit on his perch I was up all night with him when a bird has a stroke they cannot eat which he did and drink he finally realized he was paralyzed and the next day he was cackling thinking all was well his toe curled his leg was red and he could no longer stand on his feet with his good leg he went to the middle of the floor of the cage and Ispoke to him and told him he was a good boy he turned his head and spoke thesewords love you and he passed away you see he had a blood clot that went to his heart and he passedaway minutes later he was ver verbal he talked a few words, the vet told me look for a bird who constantly twitches falls of the perch screams when falling he went blind and could not see at all he lost weight
    he was very smart bird but it seems he was not born healthy do not buy a bird who twitches a lot in the cage. my female budgie is 13 years old and she grieved like you would not believe, Fritizie has no mate. I did get another bird his name is lucky hes very playful but does not like Fritzie the girl bird. I was able to tell Michiko he was loved and he did turn to hear my voice we had buried him and all so if you have questions on this I will answer your question.
    We were devastated by our loss and it seems strange that he is not here we had buried him in the area where all our budgies are buried He was a good bird
