Winter warmth

Winters vary quite a lot across Australia.

Budgies in the wild would have a temperature range of -5 to -15C rising to 30 to 40C

Many aviaries are outside with temperature of -5C to 15C in winter.

Some owners do bring birds inside.

If you think your birds are suffering from cold try bringing the inside and cover their cage with a towel when it gets dark, taking it off when you get up in the morning.

2 reasons why this is done 1 is to keep the birds warm and the other is to keep them quiet at night

Budgie Help Needed

I recieved this query today, can anyone offer any suggestion?



What does it mean when the budgie eats his seed then it looks like he brings it back up again?



My budgie has this wheel thing that has bells in little balls. He fills them up with seed that he seems to bring back up (wet seed). And underneath this bell thing but on the floor of the cage there is a heap of wet seed that seems to be building up each day. The seed look like he puts it in his beak and moves it from one side of the cage to the other. It does not look like it has been regurgitated.
