This is a toy I put together. I bought the vine balls (a budgie favorite) at the bird store – the rest is recycled parts from previous toys. The toy was a big hit. There was even some squabbling over who got to play with it first.
The lovebirds – Sunny and Dewey.
Sunny (who is doing well in the cage with the others – but still isn’t allowed to be in there unsupervised).
We put Sunny’s cage in the same room with the other budgies.
They seemed excited to see each other.
Then we let Cooper, Dewey and Ozzie out (while Sunny was in her cage) to see how they would behave. Cooper seemed indifferent and Ozzie preferred to play with the string of a toy, but Dewey was fascinated with Sunny. I think he’s in looooooove. And fickle! He’s supposed to be Cooper’s boyfriend…
Hopefully, Sunny will see how we interact with the other budgies and become tamer. She’ll step up while she’s in her cage, but not when she’s out of it.
