This month’s toy is “do it yourself”!I took apart a kabob (or marshmallows, as we call them), and used some leather cord and plastic beads (leftovers from past toys) and strung them together to make footie toys. Instead of one toy that the budgies fight over, I have several footie toys. Everyone gets their own! They still squabble over the same one though. Sigh.Ozzie’s birthday toy finally arrived in the mail. It’s the “small jellyfish” by Lucky Bird Toys.
Cooper started things off. Then it was Sunny’s turn. She loved it.Emmy comes closer to see what’s going on.And closer…This is a popular toy – there was certainly a lot of squabbling over it. But things calmed down eventually (thank goodness).
Cooper investigates.Sunny investigates.And goes for it.Felix is shy. Lera looking sweet.Emmy was hesitant at first.But soon got into the destructo spirit. She’s been working on the tree all day. All the other budgies come and go to give it a nibble, but this is HER toy – so watch out!
Look what arrived in the mail!A package filled with treats and toys for the budgies from my wonderful niece Surena and her equally wonderful fiancé RK!Here 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).Here is Lera with the hypno wheel. She was playing with it, but every time she saw the camera, she would turn around and pose.The seed sticks were a big hit as were the dried greens. Above – Cooper. Below – Sunny.They started squabbling over the sticks, so I put them at the bottom of the cage where they could all snack together.Here 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!
