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.

Solving This Grey’s Feather Plucking With A New Nano Environment

Spoiler alert: This post and discussion illustrate how I reached my diagnosis:

Jan is plucking his feathers because his feet hurt.
He’s using his food dish to sleep.
This helps avoid pressure to the bottom of his feet  which he feels when they grip the smooth dowel rod perch.
That’s why he plucks in the sleeping cage – he wants the pain to ease.

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.

Are Mites Making Making My Macaw Miserable?

 

Hi Mitch,

Always look forward to your Sunday articles, thanks!

 

Madeleine is a (Blue & Gold Macaw) rescue from a home where she was malnourished, neglected and abused.

 

I was able to negotiate relinquishment but it’s been a year of learning for me, we bonded and I decided to adopt her instead of fostering.

I love that word.

I like how it feels on the tongue.

It’s also a big reason we see so many failures and pet bird care.

We make chop because salads are healthy for us.

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).
