Hello, I live in Europe, and it's very hot during the summer here, so my budgies usually molt in the spring.. but I've noticed that my female budgie Bella, has been acting weird lately, and that she has some tiny black spots on her head, and loss of feathers under her wings. Those spots started to appear 2-3 days ago, but today they were really black and intense. I'm not sure if she's molding because she didn't look like that last year, when she did mold. I'm afraid it might me mites, but since I'm under-age, I can't go to the vet myself. My parents think it's nothing and they don't want to take her. The male budgie seems to be fine. I don't know what to do.

I lost a beautiful parakeet to two nasty parakeets that bullied that poor bird. I blame myself for not separating it from the bullies. Now that it is gone they fight with each other.

My baby budgie just came out her bird box for the first time and the father male budgie trying to hump baby is this normal

my parakeet is presumably a girl. She is humping everything in her cage and is extremely aggressive. She is finger trained and been a nice bird. She does not like to be held . She either gets out of her cage on my finger or on her own. Recently, when I put my finger in she bite me so hard she drew blood. Was really surprised and shocked. In September I will have had her 1 year. Could it be the extreme heat we are having? Is it something Hormonal? HELP!

My budgie was bred as a green show budgie and he moults very often around every other month. Is this normal? He has always been this way. Do you also have any advice for the best way to help him remove the feather pins?

What if my budgie is in moulting season and there is no other budgie around

Great information. Our budgie is moulting now and we were worried. Your description fits and we are more relaxed now knowing that he is in this process. And we give him healthy grains and veggies. His girlfriend is supporting him during his moulting
