Basics of species-appropriate husbandry and care of budgerigar from acquisition, proper nutrition to visits to the vet.
- Acquisition of budgies
- Cock or hen?
- Colour strokes
What all is there to consider when buying a cage for the budgies and which cages are not suitable.
How can I divide the cage as sensibly as possible, so that the budgies can also feel comfortable in it.
Free Flight Room
What do you need to consider before the first free flight to make the room budgie-proof and what are the possible sources of danger when the budgies fly freely there?
- Proper nutrition
- Feeding the budgies
- Disease prevention
Habituation to the human being
Instead of trying to “tame” the budgies, it is better to gradually accustom them to humans.
Once they have gained confidence, they usually come to interact with humans of their own free will.
Capture & Hold
Sometimes it can not be avoided that you have to capture a budgie and then you should know how to do it as gently as possible.
Furthermore, you should also know how to hold it properly so as not to injure it or expose it to unnecessary panic.
Even if all budgies are healthy and lively, you should still prepare for a possibly necessary visit to the vet, because there are some things that you should get in advance and always have available.
