We rescued him from the downstairs neighbors who were moving out and couldn't take him with them. When he came to us, he was underweight, severely clipped, had an overgrown beak, and may have a possible testicular tumor. We are slowly working on getting weight on him and making him healthy. He actually started molting about two weeks after we got him, indicating that he has a good protein diet to be able to make new feathers. We are hoping that he doesn't have a tumor (the vet said he might because of a brown spot on his cere) because his cere is starting to look better now that we have changed his diet. We will get him checked out again next month! He is playful, tame, and sweet!.

Hi! My name is Pigwidgeon

I am a Budgerigar from Cary, NC.

Piggy, Piglet, Sweetheart

10 years old   M

Budgerigar

Right now, he is on a no-seed diet, so really just Crazy Corn.

His cage, swing, Mommy's shoulder.

The Lovebirds, especially his sissy Angel

The good food and attention I get. My Mommy loves taking pictures of me!

He announces himself with "grouch-pot" noises in the morning and loves his cage! Hopping around the floor (see additional photos for proof... haha!)!.

I am Pigwidgeon, hear me roar!.

  Hey
I had to check out your budgie friend because the name was just so cool! How did you get him to be tame, or was he already when you got him? My budgie Angel is 10, and I just got him 2 months ago. He will eat out of my hand, and occasionallly step onto it. I have a lovebird Peeps too, and he is very friendly. He learned step up fast. He will let me pick him up now, but it took 6 months for him to trust me enough to do it. He used to nip a lot, but he learned the command gentle by me toching his beak and praising him when he genly beaked my finger. Now he is really cuddly!

Come visit me, Peeps.

Hello, how was your day? It is so hot here, my Mom should make us little cold treats to beat the heat and it is not really summer yet. So you eat just crazy corn? I think our Mom is going to see a movie Thursday. How is your Mom? I am so happy she rescued you and got you all healthy, we would have never met you otherwise.

Hello our dear little friend. My Mom moved the two new male lovebirds next to the cage of two females and we shall see if they get used to each other, Peachtree keeps staring at them. Well the males, Shadow and Twilight decided to get into their water dish, they were all wet and funny looking, not a way to impress the ladies. Cant decide who is prettier you feathered children or your Mom, its close.

We have 6 keets and none of them are twitterpated, too hot for romance lately. The young lovebirds are going to change color I think, hope so. We get new cages, some of us do, from the Humance Society sale, Grandma and Aunt Bobbi have been helping set up and they found cages, carriers, all sorts of wonderful stuff, they get to shop and bring it all home tommorrow as Friday it opens to the public and it gets dangerous.

We're so glad you came to visit us (me and Mom). Mom hopes you gain weight like you need to and that you get all healthy soon! You're getting a vote from us today too! Congrats on the step-up and getting out of your cage :) I'm still working on step-up - I only like to do it when I want to :o Hey we can't view your video on youtube - can you make sure the URL is right?

Oh my gosh! That is one of the sweetest things i have ever heard. I cant believe that you can get him to eat only corn. I cant get my bird Parri to eat anything other than seeds! If you can, share your answers.

Come visit me, Parri.

We love your name. I think lovebirds are adorable of course but we can bite hard, guess it is not the size of the beak but the force of your beak and how hard you clamp. My Mom has to go to 4H and give a talk, next month she is doing a demo. Tonight it is plants safe and plants not-safe for birds and household items. In June she may take a bird, maybe not, we can get awful noisy. Well we shall wait and see, have a wonderful evening.
