All the other budgies come and go to give it a nibble, but this is HER toy – so watch out!

Budgie Care Package

Look what arrived in the mail!1A package filled with treats and toys for the budgies from my wonderful niece Surena and her equally wonderful fiancé RK!3Here is Alfie with the disco bell. Alfie loves his bells! This is a favorite of the boys (who love chatting up their reflections in shiny surfaces).2Here is Lera with the hypno wheel. She was playing with it, but every time she saw the camera, she would turn around and pose.cThe seed sticks were a big hit as were the dried greens. Above – Cooper. Below – Sunny.sThey started squabbling over the sticks, so I put them at the bottom of the cage where they could all snack together.aHere is Alfie again (with the ever present food on his face). Alfie is always first on the scene when food enters the cage.

The budgies loved their gifts! The flock has been a little quiet since Gordie left, so the care package was definitely a welcome surprise. Thank you so much Surena and RK!

XOXO,

the budgies

New Toy – October

t1I don’t know the name of this one, but it’s from Paradise Bird Toys.t2Cooper decides if it’s worth her time (it was).t3I switched out the parts from last month’s (scary) toy. The budgies love it now. Who can resist a mirror and shreddable marshmallows? This one I only put in when I’m there to supervise – I don’t want any budgies to get tangled or stuck.t4

New Toy – September

matIt’s the Mini Activity Wall from Super Bird Creations! I like that I can hook on whatever toys I want. I have a lot of leftover parts from old toys that I can clip on it. sHere’s a pic of Sunny not playing with it.aoAnd one of Alfie and Ozzie, who won’t go near it.cCooper gives her review.

I’m hoping the budgies will work up their courage enough to investigate. Maybe hooking on some marshmallows (birdie kabobs) or millet will entice them. Sigh.
