My Budgies Beak Broke Off – Can I Fix It?

parrot with broken beak

Stevie Van Zandt requested your answer

I have a rescue budgie, the top of his beak was almost totally gone, just barely hanging.

 

We have NO vet in my area and nobody specializes in birds.

 

I removed what was hanging and she seems ok, I made a “mush” for her to eat. Will the beak grow back?

 

Your bird’s beak may or may not grow back.

How Do I Reduce My Male Budgies Aggression?

2 green budgies beaking

Hello,

 

I look forward to getting your email every Sunday and reading it has become as much a ritual as the old Sunday paper.

And now I have a question for you.

 

Thunder and Lightning are my bonded parakeets.

 

I’ve had them for years.

 

Last summer I saw more and more breeding activity, so I bought a box and let nature take its course.

 

Thunder laid four eggs, one of which was fertilized.

Answers For Breeding And Feeding Budgies

2 budgies an a branch

Hello, My 2 parakeets had been mating & the hen has been laying 14-15 eggs so far.

 

After the first 9, the male who had been guarding the nest abandoned the eggs.

 

It seemed they are all unfertilized after looking at them under a bright flashlight.

 

Then they started building another nest under the table where I keep all their supplies (inside a bucket).

How Winter Places Stress On Captive Birds

Birds have a highly developed sense of light. In humans, we perceive light through our eyes.
Our feathered friends have an additional way of interpreting light conditions, a special gland which surrounds the eye. Read more on this
As days get shorter and the temperature falls, we want you to be aware of some issues the changing weather may have on your birds.
In the wild, animals rely on the cycling of the sun, and the seasons to adjust their biological clocks and metabolism. It is the sun, and changes in the quality of light and length of the day which set the stage for breeding, migration, molting, and daily behavior patterns.
 
I hope this helps you understand why we feel the lighting category on our site is so important to your Bird’s well-being. A full-spectrum light and timer on top of your birds cage can help address everything from behavioral issues to incessant egg laying.

How To Easily Get Powdered Supplements Into Your Bird – Video

There are no wrong or right procedures or specific foods for any given bird.

It’s always good to start with a manufacturers well rounded parrot food blend like Hagan Tropimix which has seeds, nuts, fruit and Hagen Tropimix pellets.

Some birds are extraordinarily picky eaters and will only eat seed.

A straight bird food pellet diet is not necessarily the answer.

We tell people “there are no pellet trees in the rain forest”

What should you consider before getting a pet bird?

Children are loud, messy, and time consuming,  but every family has 2.6 of them (Pew research).

 

I probably spend less time cleaning up after my eight birds in three bird cages than most moms cleaning up after 2 six-year-olds

To say that all birds are time-consuming is an unsupported blanket statement.

 

We have a Senegal parrot and an African ringneck.

 

Neither is very noisy.
