I love this video because it clearly illustrates how destructive even small birds can be.
I’ve often said the universe is too complex to be arbitrary.
We brought home a Prevue F040 birdcage for our six budgies, but once built we clearly felt it was too small.
It sat in our living room for about three weeks.
During that time we received a phone call and long story short we ended up rescuing a 17-year-old male African ringneck.
One answer started with
Yet these three species come in close to a combined 100 flavors.
Major Mitchell cockatoos are not loud, and not necessarily cuddly
Bare eyed cockatoos are all but demure
Noble macaws are only 12 to 14 inches long.
Hyacinth macaws are up to 44 inches long – 4 times the size of a noble macaw.
You can’t compare the two just because the are macaws.
I clearly have been remiss by not keeping everybody up with the lives of our six budgies.
Ever since we adopted the last two, Biscuit and Gravy, the dynamics have certainly once again changed in the cage environment.
Putting things in perspective there are only two males, Jam and Eggs, the other four are females.
Jam certainly takes charge on a regular basis. Eggs is just a mellow fellow.
Jam will “helicopter” and just stay afloat in the center of the cage “beaking” out orders.
What size cage is the minimum size for one small budgie?
The experts have all sorts of rules on proper cage sizing.
“It needs to be this size and shape in height”.
“In needs to have levels on this and that”.
“The bar spacing MUST be…….”
So here’s my deal with the experts
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?
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.
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.
