Default Rescued budgie

Hey everyone. Just right now I rescued this poor little girl. She was left outside in a tiny awful cage in really really cold temperatures. Her cage was rusted and she was forced to perch on a metal bar. I feel so bad for her. I don't have money currently to take her to a vet but I wanted to rescue her from that awful environment and give a much better happy home. I will post updates of how she's doing. This is the way she was living.

It's excellent that you plan to give the abandoned budgie a safe and loving home.

That's great that you took her in, I hope she was not outside in the cold too long to do her any harm.

Hello everyone. So here's an update on my rescued girl. She's doing good so far. She's eating and flying around inside her cage and exploring it. She is eating a lot, and I mean like every 5 minutes. I'm not sure if she was never fed much with her previous owners but she's always at her food bowl eating. The second thing she's doing is climbing into her food bowl and kicking out all the food. I don't mind the mess just don't want her to end up starving if she kicks all her food out. Also she is currently being quarantined in my room. My other birds are in a different room but she can hear them chirping and screaming having fun. She chirps back to them. Will this cause her any stress and make things hard on her?

What foods are you giving her at this time?

A Healthy Diet for your Budgie

Quality Seed Mix

Cuttlebones and Mineral Blocks/Manu Clay Roses

You can try a different type food bowl to prevent her from going into the bowl and kicking the seed out.
As she is female, it is best not to have a bowl she can sit in anyway as she may decide later on to use it as a nesting site.

You might want to try a feeder like this:

Bird Feeders & Waterers: Prevue Pet Products Jumbo Fountain Feeder

It is fine that she can hear the birds in the other room and shouldn't be an issue.

I am feeding her the same food I feed my parakeets. Dr Harveys best parakeet food and harisons high potency mash mixed in with the dr harveys. Her cere is currently brown so you think she may be trying to nest? I'll have to order a differen't food bowl then. Her water bowl is the same type as her food bowl. A stainless steel bowl. Should I change that as well?

Yes, it would be best for you to change both the food and water dishes, especially since she is in breeding condition.

Excellent choice with regard to the seed mix with the Harrison's mash.

Okay I'll order two different bowls. Have you seen this type of behavior before. Not sure what she's doing.
