A little update on how the new budgies are doing.Emmy loves the new cage. She is all over everything. She’s quite the energetic acrobat. She’s definitely going to keep Ozzie on his toes. Today she came out of the cage and flew around the room. She bonked into a couple walls. Ack! She’s fine, though. Watching a budgie learn to fly for the first time in a room is awful. Emmy still isn’t finger tame. I need to work on that!
Poor Gordie! Look at those pinnies! He’s going through a rather bad moult. Gordie will be out of quarantine soon. I’m glad he’ll be with the other budgies. He just sits in his cage and doesn’t play with his toys. He’s so quiet. I’m hoping he’ll be happy when he’s part of a flock. Gordie is great at sitting on our shoulders, but does not like fingers. But we keep trying – I think he’ll get there eventually.Little Lera (named after my niece Solera). She’s such a sweetie. Her quarantine will be up soon as well. She lets me pet her tummy, so I think stepping up is right around the corner. Three days after we brought Gordie home I saw an ad for a budgie in Craigslist. She was in our neighborhood, so I couldn’t resist. She’s just started playing with her toys. It seems that it takes the rehomed budgies a month to be comfortable (exploring their cage and playing with their toys).
It will be so nice to have all the budgies in one cage. Probably quieter, too!
