I took my budgie into vet last week because she had big droppings and they were sticking to her vent. They cleaned her, checked her for bacteria infection (which she had last month) and she has no infection anymore. We are giving her a 2nd round of antibiotics and probiotics just in case. They also suggested I give her this dietary supplement called Standard Process to mix in her food. It’s a very small amount to mix in but I just want to make sure this is ok. It has natural ingredients but I havent’ seen any suggestions on giving it to birds. It says canine and cat and pets but I don’t see birds listed. Thank you.

Hi I bought an 8 week old budgie at the back end of December last year and I have a few questions about it. First of all I’m unsure of the Sex of my budgie, there beak isn’t blue or pink? Also, my bird doesn’t fly I have tried multiple training techniques that I have found on the internet, could anyone help? Thanks in advance

Have just rescued pair roller canaries and a budgie. Never kept caged birds and these three now fly free in my flat. At dusk they return to their cage for the night and then fly free again at dawn. The canaries are now nesting and female is sitting four eggs. I think this is fantastic. I'm considering creating indoor aviary as i do not have garden. Has to be big enough to allow them freedom of flight. Saw your web site, liked it.
