    Another update from the moron with the rescue budgie: Got noise complaints from neighbors so basically begged the shelter to take him early (instead of me watching him for 20+ days).

    I think s/he's missing his/her mate and lonely because it's nonstop shrill TWEET! TWEET! TWEET! TWEET! now. I've tried everything to provide more stimulation, including researching the cost/benefit rundown of mirrors with budgies (because they DO see it as another bird, but this is actually partly bad, because it can frustrate/overexcite them and even get them attached to a nonexistent reflection). But I think s/he's just responding to the outdoor birds' distant tweeting by screeching back "I'm here, come hang out with me," and it's making me want to hang myself.

    I feel bad asking the shelter (which is already full) to take him but they were nice about it. I think it's better for him to be with other birds. Thanks for reading my blog.

      Also this brief nice time spent with a budgie has been fun and I see why people love them. They're very sweet. I got him used to my face and was working on slowly getting him to see my hand as a non-threat. I can't imagine how fun it is to have them trust you and hang out with you.

      And the chitterchatter tweeting was very cute. I could listen to that all day for sure.

    it's so weird seeing her fly around like that, at this point there's nothing to be done right? my parents don't believe in taking pets to the vet, they'd rather just leave them as is.

      A thread about budgers.

      They are horrid pets and i dont understand the appeal
      Its already socially acceptable to torture dogs for minor nuisances and lock them in little cages. After all, joel beckman isn’t in jail yet. Why add to the list of constantly abused tranimals?

      I just found a lost budgie in a parking lot. It's not a wild parakeet, for sure. Any advice on how to care for the poor guy until I can find his original owners or I suppose adopt him out if I can't find them? Or maybe keep him.

      I've given him some dove seed and water so far.

      Why not just take her to the vet yourself?

        Update, I got him/her a cage with perches and some proper seed. He is terrified of me so I am trying to minimize touching him. He seems more relaxed now that he's in a proper cage with perches and can see where he is in the room. But he's closing his eyes and looks a little sleepy, which is worrying me (anxiety? not sleeping? sick?) so I'm going to keep a close eye on him and maybe take him to an avian vet, even though I can't afford that.

        Having this bird really makes me realize how cruel it is to keep beautiful birds like this in cages. Everything online about budgies revolves around how fragile they are.

            if the budgie is eating and drinking he is doing fine
            if budgie is sick he is fluffed up and sleepy 24/7
            a vet will give you an antibiotic
            instead of wasting money on vet
            buy bird antibiotics yourself from the vet pharmacy
            [...]
            you can unbound the budgie yourself if you feel confident
            first you need to put coconut oil
            then hold the budgie on-top of hot steam air to loosen the muscles
            if that didnt work then she need a professional to push the egg or surgery

            He's cheeping VERY loudly, any advice on why? Thank you. He's by the window and watching other birds which I think is exciting him. Just checking to make sure loud, single cheeps isn't a sign of distress, or maybe he somehow doesn't understand that he has food/water and is hungry (or something like that). He's also "chattering" occasionally.

            Also he sometimes, rarely, makes a really squawky sound. He made it when I had to grab him to transfer him to the larger cage once, so I worry it's a primal fear sound, meaning he's still occasionally terrified in the new cage..

            I am just holding onto him until I can find either his owner (this is seeming more unlikely) or a better foster than me. I don't want to just give him away to someone irresponsible, I would only want to give him away to an adult who really loves these birds.

              my budgie makes that sound when he is upset/bored and wants to leave the cage. it can mean your budgie is upset about loosing its friends (assuming it had friends) play budgie sounds from YouTube and see how it reacts.

              imo budgies do not make that sound when sick. instead, they make that sound if they are injured physically. or if they are molting feathers. or if they are bored/agitated.

                Thanks bro. It does seem to be just part of his repertoire. He's starting to trust me a little more now but I still don't want to scare him with my hands just yet, I'm just saying hello and gently talking to him.

                He does this really loud "TWEET!" sometimes, which is the worst one in terms of pissing off my neighbors. From what I can tell, this is his "any other budgies nearby?" call. If I get another budgie to keep him company (someone else rescued one nearby and I'm thinking of caging them together, if they get along, do you think they'll scream less or more?

                I don't mind constant chatter, it's just that one loud screaming tweet.

                probably escaped/released together?
                >I'm thinking of caging them together
                good idea, i won't guarantee less screams, tho... but they will be happy together. My 2 budgies compose songs together.and bad sleeping schedule, it makes budgie grumpy. Do you cover the cage for 12 hours of sleep?

                I've been trying to cover the cage plenty but any advice would be appreciated. What I do right now is: he's in a fairly tall/large cage, near a second-floor window so he can look out and see the sparrows and such fly by. He chitchats with himself seemingly happily. I cover the side of the cage facing the room so he doesn't have to deal with me yet, in case I only foster him for a few days, but I poke in and say hi.

                When it gets dark outside, I (mostly) cover the whole cage and he sleeps pretty soundly from like 8PM to 8-10AM.

                I use a thin blue sheet for the covering, so light still gets through and it's dark but not pitch black at night in his cage.

                So far I've just been giving him budgie feed but I have lettuce. Any advice on an easy to serve fruit/vegetable I can toss in there, to cheer him up?

                budgies love banana peel
                easy hang a slice in cage bars
                salad leftovers (without garlic/onion/avocado/sauce)
