Woher stammen Wellensittiche?

Wellensittiche stammen aus Australien.
More specifically, they are native to large outback, including arid areas such as the desert. The birds live there in large flocks and their diet relies mainly on grasses and seeds. Budgerigars were first described and brought to Europe by European explorers in the late 18th century. Here they quickly became known as pets due to their adorable nature. Through further breeding, they now exist in various sizes and colors around the world.

How to breed budgies ?

Breeding budgies requires a lot of knowledge and experience. Here are some basic steps to follow. Of course, to achieve good breeding results, you first need a male and a female. Then you need the right conditions, i.e. a good incubator with nesting material in a quiet place. Also the air temperature plays a role. Incubation takes place between 18 and 24 degrees. Once the conditions are met, mating usually takes place within two weeks. Females lay about 4-6 eggs during the incubation period. Checking for fertilization with a flashlight would be advisable. The incubation period is then between 18 and 21 days. When the chicks are then hatched, the parents should be fed with germ food and egg food additionally. Germ food contains a lot of protein and important vitamins and minerals which are elementary for healthy rearing. After about 4 weeks, the little ones then also eat the normal food.

What are the types of budgies?

There are many different types of budgies. The best known species is the standard budgerigar, also known as the Australian budgerigar. Other species include the gray-headed budgerigar, yellow-headed budgerigar, cinnamon budgerigar, blue-headed budgerigar, lutino budgerigar, and albino budgerigar. There are also different color mutations and combinations of colors in budgies. Once you have decided on a species, remember to always keep at least two parakeets. They are very social and need conspecifics.

What are typical diseases in the budgie?

We have listed 5 of the most common diseases in budgies.
  • Aspergillosis: To make a long story short. There is mold in the lungs! As everyone can imagine, this can not be good! This type of disease quite often leads to the death of the budgie, because the disease is detected late. To recognize a symptom, you have to listen carefully. A small crackle in the breathing could indicate a fungal infection. To get better air, small parakeets hook their beaks in the grate and hyperextend their necks to get better air. If the budgie also starts pumping heavily after free flight, this is also a sign of the disease. Trigger for aspergillosis is often a not species-appropriate attitude.

  • Laying deadness: This exists when an egg cannot be laid. Legenot therefore comes without symptoms and warning. Only the eggshell change can be an indication. Wind eggs or eggs with a rough shell would be a sign. One reason for egg laying failure would be a change in the fallopian tube. An infection for example. Especially stressed females, which are too often set to brood, are candidates for egg laying. To prevent it, you can provide budgies with vitamins and minerals such as calcium, vitamin D3 and vitamin A.
  • Macrorhabdiosis: This disease is a yeast fungus. In the past, it was assumed to be a bacterial infestation. For this reason, the disease has also become known as megabacteriosis. In English it is called going light syndrome. Briefly explained, the yeast fungus prevents the absorption of nutrients in the intestine. Macrorhabdiosis is hardly recognizable, only a listlessness of the bird indicates it. Only when the parakeet vomits or whole grains are found in the feces, it is clear that megabacteriosis is present. Contrary to many opinions Macrorhabdiose can be treated well. This requires a quick action of the owner in case of infestation. Seek an avian veterinarian who can prevent death. We have also adapted to this disease with a low-sugar feed mixture. It contains a lot of grass seeds and is easy on the intestinal tract.
  • Mites: They come in the form of burrowing mites or scabies mites. Mites are probably the most common disease caused by parasites in budgies. They are very small and therefore very difficult to detect. If there is no treatment of the parasites, this is unfortunately to the chagrin of the budgies. In bad cases it came to amputations of the beak, without which the bird must be euthanized. From self-initiative with sprays from the trade we advise against. It leads to nothing and causes only further suffering to the parakeet. A selective fight on the bird makes little sense, a whole-body therapy can only be carried out by a veterinarian who knows birds.
  • Tumors: are divided into benign and malignant versions. Fat tumors, for example, belong to the good ones. Lipomas can often be prevented by feeding appropriate to the species and plenty of exercise. The malignant tumors, unfortunately, can affect many organs: Liver, kidneys, spleen and testicles, to name a few. Tumors can be operated in budgies extremely rarely. Unfortunately, often the only option in the end is to euthanize the bird to spare it an agonizing death.

What does a healthy, species-appropriate diet look like?

A healthy, species-appropriate diet should be balanced and contain all the necessary nutrients in sufficient quantities. A simple millet mixture from the store is unfortunately not a good idea, because the diet is more complex than thought. It should be varied to prevent deficiencies of minerals and vitamins. In the wild, budgies live in large flocks and like to eat semi-ripe to ripe grass seeds and other seeds from plants close to the ground. They are not only full of energy but also rich in nutrients. Oily seeds with a high fat content, such as sunflower seeds, therefore belong only very rarely on the menu. Also foxtail millet should only be offered in small quantities. In the category panicles & ears we offer therefore also grass seeds as panicle. They may shred and eat this at will! Fruits, berries and also vegetables may count also to the daily food plan. But be careful, in animals with Macrorhabdiose please pay attention to the fruit sugar. In this disease please avoid sugar and feed mainly with grass seeds. Also herbs are eaten with pleasure. Special however is the eucalyptus. From its homeland Australia the budgerigar knows this tree only too well. On the leaves we gnawed there regularly. Eucalyptus is not poisonous for the budgie. It even helps with intestinal parasites and other pathogens through its antibacterial, essential oils. Particularly gladly we our germ food & spring food or our cooked food accepted. It is easily digestible and high in energy. With a little practice, anyone can germinate their sprouted food. But it is also easier with our sprouted food in a jar.
