Hey, i recently bought my first budgie he is 11 weeks. i have never had a bird of my own before but my mother has a blue headed green amazon parrot, but these are ALOT larger than a tiny budgie so i still dont have any real experience.(and it is not very fond of me! It bites everyone but her) But I am worried my new budgie may have a cold and have been since i got him I got him from a man who breeds them and kept them outside. Though I keep him in the house i am constantly worried he could be cold! I hear him making what sounds like a small sneezing noise quite alot what should i do??? Please help! I have searched the internet and have had advice from sheets over the cage (which I am not keen on doing, i dont want him to feel trapped or hidden away!) To children's medicines in his water!! (I have never noticed him drinking his water though which is also worrying)
I am desperate to know If I am taking proper care of my budgie and get him to top health as I know he will be more prone to sickness as he is only young :( and winter and colder weather is approaching ... not that you get much hot weather in newcastle!
