Hi,
I have a Budgerigars - Parakeet (yellow and bright green colour). She is a female. I have noticed from few days certain white boils getting developed around her beak. Also she looks fluffy around her head. The feathers look like beard. Please let me know urgently what it is? and what do we have to do to cure it. She has got a male Budgerigars - Parakeet and a female love bird also as partners in the same cage.
Kindly help us with this answer at the earliest.
Thank you!

Petey my Parakeetey, just loves his cage... he only wants to go back, not spend time with us... we think he's about 6 months old. This is the only bird I ever remember that likes his cage more than flying Should we get him a friend? Should I take some toys or treats away?

Larry, your budgie has poop on his bottom because he's sick. If you can, gently wash it with warm cotton balls because if he gets stopped up, he will die. And, take him to a vet.....he may be very, very sick or just stressed out because of the new surroundings. If he's not a baby parakeet, he may be missing his buddies he's been spending his life with. Take care of him. Please.

I have had a parakeet for about 4 years. My mother gave him to me, so yes he is very special to me, but he does have a big ego. I spend more of my time with him than my husand does, so therefore I do know him. I love him and he knows it. I had two females for him but some how they end up leaving him, so I give him a lot of freedom so he won't be lonely. He loves our family cause he knows how important he is to us. Suilma

I just bought two parakeets today,
for my little boy.
I let him pick both of them out.
He picked a girl and a boy.
He also chose the cage and toy's.
All I have to say is they are harmless,
both bird's let my 4 year old hold them,
and love them. They kinda peck at him every
once in a while, my son say's it tickles.
I enjoy knowing that they bring him so much
joy, all mother's want to see their child happy.
Which these two, are the key to happiness!
Angie
