    Its hard to say why your bird died. They live on average 12 to 14 years and are very hardy. It sounds like your bird may have been sick, because you said you were advised to start an antibiotic treatment. Presumably you told them about, or they saw, physical symptoms that indicated this type of treatment. The best way to get an answer is to have your veterinarian perform an autopsy, yet even that may or may not be conclusive.

    No, if he's damaged his feet (I'm guessing he lost part of a toe) it will not grow back. Feathers usually will though.

Hi Everyone, We had a beautiful male Plumhead Parrot named Jasper! We had just moved up the Sunshine Coast, Yandina, Qld. I think it was almost the end of 2013 at the time. We had only been there for about 3 weeks when Jasper flew away and being in a completely new area and lots and lots of trees for as far as you can see, he must of lost his bearings and never came back :-( :-( he was about 4 and a half years old and had him from a tiny little syringe fed baby!!! He use to mimic my family and myself. But loved hanging out with me all the time. He use to live in the house with us and also loved spending time outside in the trees with a couple of our other birds at the time. We MISS him so very much and hope to god that he was found safely!!!!! But would loved to find him and bring him home!!!!!! If anyone up the Sunshine Coast, Yandina way and have found our baby....we would LOVE to hear from you!!!!! I know it's a long shot but I've read so many stories where animals have been reunited with their owners and am praying this will happen with our 'Jasper'!!!!! Leeanne :-)

For the last few days I've seen this beautiful bird at my bird feeders. Today while outside I saw it and wanted to take a photo. I was amazed when the bird allowed me to come within inches of it to take a photo. I've since learned it is a Budgerigar Parakeet. Someone suggested it's probably someone's pet and for me to try to catch it. I don't know much about that and wouldn't know what to do with it. Do they or can they survive in Maryland?

    Budgies aren't native to Maryland, so it probably was someone's pet. Parrots can handle some temperature changes but with the extremes in your state I would suggest that it won't survive outside through the winter. If you can catch it, this page offers some great info on how to care for it. Good luck!

Budgies are a wonderful pet! I have four right now and they are definitely my best friends. I agree with the authors statement that giving them plenty of flight time will make them happier birds, I would just like to add that budgies are extremely curious and they should be watched constantly when they are loose. It's not uncommon for them to get into everything... turning your back for even a second can mean disaster!!

If you have been considering getting a budgie, you won't regret it! They are amazing friends and really bring life into a home :) Not to mention, they make the CUTEST little sounds :) All I ask is that you please do your research before buying your bird. It's best to understand what kind of food/supplies you need to feed and bring it home before even considering your pet. I have had parakeets for years and still find myself refreshing my knowledge on occasion, it is the best way to have your friend for a very long time :)

    Your found parakeet sounds like a great pet and it is behaving normally for a parrot just introduced to a new environment. Birds take a while to adjust to a new home, it may get more vocal as it gets acclimated. You're a great person for taking care of these animals and I wish you the best in finding them permanent homes.

    My kids just found a parakeet thrown away in a dumpster, cage in all, I have no clue what ti do with it, I bought it parakeet food, but its been quiet, eating, and cleaning itself. Aren't they usually noisy???I ccould use some advice here please. Im not an animal person at all, and I already housing a 9yr old chihuahua they found 2 weeks ago. Im not an animal or pet person, but can't stand to see an animal being abused or mistreated. Looking for forever homes for both pets, but want to take the best possible care of them and maybe show them the love an attention theyve probably never had. So any advice would be helpful. Thank you for your time

PLEASE HELP!!! Can blue Alexandrines be bred and how do the babies look at about 2 to 3 weeks? I took a photo of the babies I have and they are all blue Thanks. Hope you can help.

    Blue Alexandrine Parakeets are color mutations. It makes sense that the babies of two blue parents would also be blue, but to understand all this fully, you need to speak with a breeder who can talk about the gene sequences in mutations.

My parakeet is very boring if I give him twigs will he make own nest? Note this is a boy parakeet. Also would it be a hoot if iIgave him a nesting box and put twigs in that for HIM?

    Twigs would definitely help with boredom, as would a nest box. You can also provide him with other toys, and things like a ladder and a swing would help give him things to keep him occupied.

I have an eastern rosella named rainbow as I've commeted earlier this year as she's now gained all her trust in me and others around her... Finally! She will let me know when she wants to be fed or petted etc. There's just one problem and I'm a little worried as I'm a mum-to-be... Is my pet bird a danger or a hazard to my baby when he arrives?

    In general I would say no, but yet the bird may get jealous of your diverted attention. Therefore, I would not allow the bird out of its cage in the same room as the baby unsupervised. You can be too careful and birds can be unpredictable at times.
