I went to Petsmart today and they had an albino budgie! I almost got her but it looked like she may have mites, plus I really can't get another bird or two until I know the sex of my two new birds and get the new cage in the mail. Awww she was sooo cute!

What are the signs and symptoms of mites? Did you tell a store employee?

I went to Petco on the 4th and too saw an albino budgie and I had to take her home. So glad she is a character. She gets in the corner of her cage with one leg on each side and flips forward upside down. It looks like it would hurt but she loves doing this. Almost comical, we call her our little gymnast. Her name is Snowball. She is alone right now in my bedroom under quarantine. She has her wings clipped- thankfully, training the other 2 without has been hard.

My husband fell in love with her right away and asked if she could be his bird, I said "NO!" mean huh? well I am the one training her day and night.

Why are you waiting until you know the gender, are you planning on breeding?

I told the woman at the register and she said she'd tell someone, but I may call the manager today. The bird was itching its face like crazy and looked to have a little "bald" patch... I could be wrong, but she looked pretty scruffy.

Yes, I am planning on breeding my DEC to get more (s/he is all white with dark eyes and they're very rare). I have been calling around breeders in the area to try and find another DEC, and have found one guy who breeds them so far. I hope to get on the waiting list for one of his if possible. smile

Congratulations on your albino, I think they are so pretty! If I had the space I probably would have brought this lil one home despite the gender and possible mite thing! I'd just take her to a vet ASAP as mites are pretty easily treatable. But I don't have an extra cage for her to quarantine her in yet...

OHHH!! REALLY??? ALL white birdies with black eyes are rare?? I guess you live in America or Canada? If you were near me, and if you found out your baby was a girly, my Caleb could have FINALLY got some action!! LOL laugh
He is an all white budgie with black eyes, and he is a randy little poo-head!! ALL day, EVERY day!! Bless him!! I would SO love to breed from him, he is a clever little thing, PLUS I can imagine your baby teaching him to swing under his branch and my baby teaching yours to say "SHEXY"!!! LOL laugh

My Butter does that flip too, but only when she's in the cage alone. I told her to cut back on the drinking, or she's gonna make a monkey out of herself! Anybody notice how Butter and Belle look like twins?
