Hi, WARNING to any other novice budgie owner like myself, please be aware of buying individual large seeders for only one budgie, thinking I was giving my budgie the freedom of eating as and when he wanted, plus saving me the daily chore of emptying his feeder each day, as it advertised the empty shucks falling through the grid, resulted in him becoming overweight, which in turn has left him with LIVER damage, thankfully due to this forum and advice given, being told that veterinary advice was needed he is now on the road to recovery.

The feeding dishes in the cages have an inner bit to them. Another half a plastic part that goes inside the normal part. Call me stupid if you want but I can't work out why this is so.

I love budgies and have been involved with them all my life. We had one for 12 1/2 years which died in my hand. He lived all his life with only one kidney. Then when my husband died, I got one which was my little saviour. I had him for 5 years and was devastated when he died. He had some sort of virus and was on antibiotics for some months. He also died in my hand and I was distraught. He was an excellent talker , and I immediately got another one 2 days later. I didn't think I could love him like I loved Mickie, but I was wrong. He looks like Mickie, but he is so comical, and he is an even better talker . My only problem is, that he seems to eat a lot. He eats seed and I give him carrot ,parsley, and different fruit . Should I worry about him eating a lot. He sometimes seems to take a long time to digest it. Your comments please.

I gave a parakeet that keep chewing on the bowl what can I do or give him to help him stop or is it natural?

I just got 2 budgies recently, a male and a female. The female is kind of the dominant one between the two I feel. Whenever my male budgie is eating/drinking , most of the time she comes and shoos him away to eat the food herself. Sometimes they do share and eat together but that not very often. Should I keep separate food and water dishes for them?

This is a question rather than a comment. I have an 8 month old male budgie (I lost my 12 year old one in January). The new budgie is cute and is trusting me as I can rub his belly, kiss him etc. My query is he doesn't seem to want his millet, have left in the cage for 2-3 days without success. He seems to only eat his seed at night - I thought (and my old one did) that budgies were hungriest first thing in the morning. I am not too concerned as he does eat his seed during the day as well. Any ideas. Thank you.
