When my brother and I were little our parents took us to the pet store and we got 2 budgies and we named them Paco and Tweety. They got returned for some reason and dad tells me it's because my brother and I were complaining that they missed their mommies, but I don't believe him.
>>4425171I love how aggressively they preen
>>4425214Why do they do it so roughly?
>>4425155Planet Serina but with Budgies would be nice desu
>>4425155I used to grow up with parakeets and cockatiels for a long timeActually had a flock of them too Miss those times
>>4426020This is a blue board
The oldest of my 4 budgies died yesterday. The house feels different without him.
>>4426020>smooching beak and cloacDamn what a player
>>4425214>>4425237I'm completely sure they do it because they get something like an itching response which they feel a need to satisfy ASAP.
>>4426268Looks quirked up as fuck>>4426149I'm sorry that happened anon, i remember when my budgie died I cried like a bitch for a whole week
>>4427764I didn't cry, I don't ever cry really, but I really miss the fat fucker. He was one of the first budgies I got and he was with me for almost a decade.
>>4427764>quirked upWhat do you mean by this?I'm no native english speaker
>>4426268Wanna kiss the little cheek blues. What's this cutie's name?
>>4428982I'm in the USA and have no idea what he means either.
>>4431799i have 2 budgies both are male but never preen each other. is the preening only between male and female? despite not preening they do make gay kisses and feed each other>>4431901perhaps the definition is "high as fuck"
>>4425155do you guys get looked down upon for owning a budgie? I feel everyone is making fun of me when i take my budgie to the vet. Also hate how budgies and small animals get no proper vet treatment blood testing/xray where i am at. Not sure if that is universal
>>4436813People are retarded and see a budgie like it's a fish. Vets don't like birds because their needs are a lot different than 90% of their clientele (dogs and cats), and smaller birds are especially difficult. Try finding a vet which markets avian care heavily
My sister lied to my father in order to convince him to buy her a Budgie only to never take it out of her cage and scream at it when it's chirping annoyed her. A couple years later she just let the thing go to die in the Arizona summer heat. She was 17 when she got it.
>>4437272wow, 17? From age 6-9 this might have been somehow understandable and just a parenting mistake, but 17 is a complete disaster. Hope you tease her about it sometimes.
>>4430893How could they get everyone to pose for the camera like that? Damn.
>>4437861She's a meance. For the first 2 years we had her, everything we had was hers. Our food, her food. On Boxing Day she freaked out, crash landed and banged her head. Since then she's been a lot more timid and reclusive. Only recently she's started regaining her confidence.In a way it's a relief, but it's also very sad.

>>4425171Giant parakeet or tiny hand?
>>4439895English budgie is bigger than Aussie budgie, The English budgies were bred for show and have a shorter life span.
>>4425155Budgie bros did you watch the budgie anime? https://youtu.be/Lb3VC_4n_E0
>>4430893The council has been reunited to discuss the new cat ban law in the house.
>>4425155My babies passed away 10 years ago.
>>4443355RIP cute budgies
>>4436964Cute :3 the parakeet is nice too.
>>4450614You can't say that I'm cute from just the side of my face. I'm far from it. That's why I'm on 4chan.
>>4426020I rarely see animals who are this passionate about it. Even apes fuck like they don't care. I do dislike how the guy cums and instantly flies away though. He doesn't even smoke a cigarette with her.
>>4430893>Two dogs>Multiple birds>One ratPoor guy is lonesome
>>4451761They're both getting off the whole time. Birds take like 500ms to cum once the cloacas touch. They're just having fun there.He flies off because it's the natural way to dismount. He'd have come back shortly after.
>>4425155NUUUUDE DISINTEGRATING PARACHUTIST WOOO-MAN
>>4439318 Hope she gains her confidence
>>4453961She has, but she's also become very territorial and moody.If I put my hand in her cage no matter what the reason, she squawks and tries to bite me. I've read this is quite common with female budgies.If anyone has any insight into why this is and how to pacify it, I'd appreciate it greatly.
>>4453267thanks for this, I completely forgot this band existed even though i loved them back in the day
>>4430893One of these things is not like the others
>>4439772>unusual budgerigar's buddy>level 81 hat> unusual effect: dangling chains
Why is this parakeet one of the "true parrots"? What is a true parrot at all? This parrolet isn't more of a parrot than a cockatoo. When will they learn?
>>4457965Because budgies are autistic and parrolets are full on retarded
>>4460093damn, that stare is making me soft ...
>>4460111Why is he so suave?
>>4430893>>4461460These are both really impressive. I dread to think how long it took you to arrange them.
Any tips on helping a cagebound budgie get used to his surroundings and want to land on more things? The only way I can get him to stay anywhere except his cage is with millet.
>ask mom to buy me 2 parakeets when I was like 8>we have them in a little cage>they start to mate within a month>tell mom they need more space to fly>mom pays someone to build me a 140cm aviary and also buys me 2 more parakeets because they have more space now>put them pretty names and all>they start to mate like crazy, 4 to 6 eggs on average>have to buy more wooden houses>we have to build an even bigger aviary, 2 meter tall>they keep mating, there's no mating season, they do it all year>50 parakeets to 100 in a year>mom starts to get catch them and selling them to a petshop when I'm in school>keeps the pretty ones that I'l notice if they're gone, and sells the common green ones so that I don't notice>I stopped naming them because there's just so much>after years decide to sells them all>also years later she tells me she was selling some of them behind my back, and I never noticed
>>4461837It was posted by bob_marley_goldenretriever on Instagram not me lol
>>4461879I am happy they were all at least happy.
>>4461864I gave you advice before you massive cunt didn't you read it and follow it?
>>4461881Understood. I'll check out the page.Still mighty impressive anyway.
>>4461879Isnt it illegal to do back yard breeding? The pet stores around me do not accept cheap burds like budgie but will buy a macaw
>>4462784Btw i think its good for pet store to not buy cheab birds like budgie because that lower the chance of people exploitibg them for mony compared to macaw which is more expensive to breed for an average person
>>4462784Something like that would depend on the country, there's no such thing as illegal yard breeding in mine.Also in my defense, we didn't do it on purpose, we didn't know how horny these birds can get.
>>4462089clean your room fren
>>4462869It's not dirty, it's just...obscenely cluttered.
>>4426268Did you just capture that one out in the wild?
Aight, I keep coming back to this thread to look at cute birds. So, how much of a terror are these things? Mind you, I'm fucking terrified of birds for some reason, but lil dudes are too fuckin adorable. So, I went and held a couple, wasn't bad. They didn't bite my eye out or fly off with my glasses. What's the skinny on these guys?
>>4465652They make loud noises constantly and poop over 100 times a day
>>4465445>catwhy do people do this? I don't care if the cat is nice it's retarded >>4465652don't get one if you have a full-time jobof if you travel a lotor over 25 of age and never owned a bird before
>>4466026My parents cats are terrified of my budgies. The sound of them flying has them running out of the room.
my lil guy died a month ago at 14 years, i miss him a lot but at least I could hold him as he passed
>>4468658what a chad! He lived a long happy life, I fear not being around mine when his time comes, you are lucky to have each other
>>4461947I did, it has been helping.
>>4466987You are gambling there, bud.
>>4468658RIP, hope the other budgie is doing ok
>>4462869>>4463208at least bird is clean
my budgie died today. I feel so sad but she's in a better place now. She lived for 4 years.Budgies are so hard to be kept alive. :(
>>4439318>everything we had was hers. Our food, her food.same experience for all 3 parakeets of my brother. but I read that's how birds are. they live long enough with you, and see themselves as part of the flock: the flock is eating, bathing, sleeping, flying somewhere (you leave out of the room)
>>4470221I am sorry anon. I hope she had a happy life with you and is resting easy now.
>>4451761I saw some videos of parrots having sex in the wild and I think a lot of the reason he is bouncing around is just so he can maintain his balance better while two birds are on a little branch trying to find the right angle. At least, that's how it looks to me. I saw two cockatoos having sex on top of a traffic light one time in real life (I live in Australia) and the male wasnt shaking around as violently
>>4478574cute budgie gang
budgies are cheap dinosaurs
>>4453224You sure know a lot about bird sex
>>4425155Speculative Evolution with Budgies would be interesting
>>4483061Why do a lot of budgies look like owls?
>>4483061this is his drawing ithink>>4485827the circular pattern of the head>>4487616lol
Client gaved my mom 4 budgies with a new cage, food, toys, etc and she's giving them to my aunt who knows how to take care of them. She's gonna a bigger cage when they move to their new house.
>>4488651I hope they are enjoying their new life.
>>4490557They doing good
Once I bought a budgie, I never went back. I have owned many over the past 20 years now.
I am thinking about getting a third budgie. I have two right now, and have had three in the past but the third one ended up passing. Not sure if I should get another again. The two are getting along better than usual and they might be getting too old for another friend.
I've had my budgies for like 1 1/2 years now and they still are afraid of me, refuse to perch, wont go near my hand, etc. I've tried so hard to bond with them and even have them in my room most of the time with me to try and break that barrier but nothing seems to work. why do they hate me? all I dream of is one day being able to hold them. :( I've always respected their space and never tried to forcefully handle them... did i do something wrong?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EnZ0IjC77oI miss my birds, but I still feel bad about having to put them in a cage when I'm not around. I don't like the idea of letting them free fly around the house either and poo everywhere.
Hey guys, I have an 8 year old budgie that's by herself now. I don't really have it in me to get a new bird just so she has a cage mate.Any tips on how I can make things easier for her?
>>4425155Punch, smash and slam
We are victorious.
>apparently his ass sac is leaking whenever he sits. Got on my bed, meowed at me all morning, and left a palm sized wet mark on my bed that smells foul. A real excerpt from catfags.
>>4495242Maybe give your budgie some new toys?
>>4495189how old were they when you first got them? its hard to tame adult birdsyou cannot hold any budgie only hand-fed budgies allow for holding. even those can grow out of it when they become adults.or do you mean hold as in "perch on finger"?>>4495193>I don't like the idea of letting them free fly around the house yea bad idea to let them fly unsupervised, save-up for a big aviary if you are not home a lot>>4495242get a radio or music player serve her new foodgive new shredding toys>>4495414>>4495419rip and tear
>>4496842>>4497081>new toysI'll probably do that, she seems depressed so I wasn't sure if new things were the best right now.>serve her new foodits my semi-annual attempt to try to get her to eat pellets again.i probably went through every by brand now.
>>4497303I feel you on the pellets front my budgie brother. I got one of mine to love perts, though only the rainbow kind by going to the canary size, maybe try that?New toys arr a good sign, maybe something shiny but not a mirror they can get addicted too? Mine love a discoball thing with a bell on it.
>>4497303>i probably went through every by brand now.I got a trick you serve soaked pellets, not solid pelletssoak the pellet with equal amount of water mix with rusk/egg food/seeds/veggies/etc...what ever your bird loves mine loves pellet mix with rusk and eggfooodthe soaked pellet stick with her favorite food and she will eat it my guy is still a seed addict but he gets super exited when i serve the pellet every now and then
one of my two budgies just died brosI'm so sadlooked exactly like OP's pic
>>4498477blue guy had you on his side for goodbeys before taking off into the blue sky
>>4483314>don't go to the birdcage tomorrow
anyone here participate or attends budgie shows?what are your ethical view on show budgies?
>>4499797im really interested in learning but i hardly find any documentation about these shows
>>4499801Kind of reminds me of the virgin/chad meme.
>>4502909What happens if I poke its beak tits?
>>4503043What’s his endgame?
>>4466026>or over 25 of age and never owned a bird beforWhy?
Are there any books or resources online to learn about budgies? Like their anatomy, behavior, how they live in the wild and shit. I want to gain deep understanding about them, not just read a couple of dumbed down articles.
>>4505127because you have established priorities such as a full time job, frinds, family, hobbies,travle ...fitting a budgie inside all that can be frustrating and most likely you do not have the passion for parrots if you reached this far in life without owning onepersonally i do not know any parrot owner who started keeping parrots in late 20s and those who do give up after a couple of years due to life changesi mean after 25 a lot of changes start to happen marriage,kids,moving priorities change and you would not care for the budgie as much anymore unless you are a neet with all the time in the world then ya maby you can get one
>>4461001deep blue cere>thick feathers>hawk like eye profilewhat a chadkeet
how many budgies do you have?>>4515620lol awesome find
My friend is getting rid of his green cheek conure and I told him I might be able to get it off his hands.The thing is I already have budgies and everything I read online says that conures can be very dangerous to budgies. Is there any way to make it work? I mostly let my budgies free roam and I'd intend to let the conure do the same. Anyone here have that combo?
>>4516438about three fitty
>>4451761The cloacas attach, and they attach very hard. This type of bird does not have a penis. It ejaculates almost emediatly after the cloacas connect . What you are seeing is the bird trying to get off, struggling to disconnected.
>>4505137i have been searching...no budgie specific books only "how to take of budgies" books. perhaps a general parrot book would have info on them. or Australian bird books.>>4516553it's fine as long as they don't eat or sleep in the same cage introduce him very slowly tho or the budgies will be the ones kicking his ass lolthere are many guides for introducing new birds follow them
>>4518389Is it safe to let them out at the same time with minimal supervision? I like to let my birds free roam whenever I'm home. I'd never be far but I wouldn't exactly be watching them closely all the time either. From what I've read online people seem to say they can only be let out at the same time with high supervision which implies that either the budgies or the conure would have to be inside their cage the rest of the time and that's not great imo
>>4516553I have a conure and she's fine with my budgies. As long as they aren't in the same cage. My budgies mostly know when they do something wrong and retreat from the conure when she puffs out her face. One budgie even preens the conure every now and then.
how can this lil niggas be so loud?their lungs must be about the size of a grape
>>4525684the budgies are on the quite side of parrots they reach around 70db while other parrots can reach to a 100dbyou can download a voice meter app to measure how far your guy can reach

>>4527532Very nice drawing
>>4516438thank you here's a hand'o birb
>>4522671That's good to hear I haven't let them interact directly with each other much yet but so far both the conure and the budgies have been chill

>be me>be rebonding with my lil blue budgie after the death of his mate of like a decade>he's playing in my hair>ok time to go look at this new house my parents may possibly could by if they felt like it>it's a piece of shit, they didn't like it>get back home>lil Bluebird is dead>I pulled him off my hair too hard and broke his tiny twig legs>he died on the floor of his cage, his home for ten plus years, alone, in pain, suffocating under his own weight>flying into walls and ceiling fans didn't deter him. no, only my own grasp, pulling him away from myself in serviance to some fruitless cause, lead to his demise>I buried him in a tiny Amazon box by the creek thirty feet from the backyard of the much better house my parents bought two blocks awayI'm sorry, Bluebird. I wish I could have let you fly through the trees under which I buried you.
>>4530541he was old and weak brittle bones and joints. it wasn't your fault. although i don't know how hard you pulled him im sure you did not intend to harm him. its difficult to measure the size of our strength when handling small animals. death is always painful he was at his cage which gave him some semblance of comfort and familiarity as he passed.
>>4528617Thanks, i give you another. This one is one of my favourite budgie paintings. Bluebell, from Tales from The Inner City.>>4530087I'm not sure, I think fruit were smaller in the past.
>>4534019Why are their cheeks permanently puffed up?
>>4535319that how their feathers are arranged. budgie pictures show them relaxed with puffy cheeks. a scared budgie will have flatter cheeks.because flat feathers makes them look skinny and iky for predators. but when relaxing they can look puffed up. its controled by the budgie emotion.
>>4530541How did you know that your pull did that unless you noticed it before you left.
why is this thread so nice
>>4425155I want a bird, but I'm on the fence between a budgie (or 2), a canary, or a lovebird(or 2). Each birds have pros and cons. I didn't realize how good budgies mimic voices! Does anyone know of good places in Canada to purchase birds online? I live in Newfoundland, and all we have is a pet shop with these sad looking critters... God knows hbowling they've been there or how well kept they are.
>>4535873*God only knows how long
I watched this movie because budgie, do you watch budgie related media?>>4535873>birds have pros and consnah you can have the most polite quite budgie or a spawn from hell budgie. it depends on the personality and tamed level. >Canada to purchase birds online? find local breeders online in social media see if they sell, or search in your local resell websites where people put their unwanted pets for sale.
