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.
We’ve been having a bit of hot weather in San Diego. To beat the heat the budgies have been playing in the water.
Ozzie in the pool.Gordie takes a dip and a nap.It’s hard to get Alfie out of the water.Such a little clown.After a swim, it’s time for some refreshing watermelon. Alfie is always the first to the food. He was more about the lettuce (as you can see from the ever present food on his beak). Cooper was the only one who was really into the watermelon. Yum!
Emmy and Felix finally moved into the big cage. Felix pals around with Gordie, but is a little standoffish with the others. I think Emmy wanted to be alpha female, but Lera shut that down pretty quickly. Both are doing well and seem to enjoy being with the flock. And I enjoy having only one cage to clean : ).
