In the Spotlight – Sunny

We noticed that Sunny had been having difficulty flying in 2018, so we took her to the vet a couple times to have her checked out. She was put on pain meds, but she still wasn’t flying. She had an x-ray and no broken bones were found – so we think she may have arthritis. 

She does not seem to be in pain, and gets around the cage easily (she is a pro at climbing). However, the budgies’ flight cage is large and it is quite a fall from the top perches (where everybirdie wants to be). We bought ladders and more perches and arranged them  very close together so she could hop from one to another. Yet, she would still occasionally fall. So, now Sunny has her very own cage. She visits the girls in the big cage, and gets time to run around on the floor, but now we can breathe a little more easily that she won’t fall and hurt herself.

Aside from the not-flying Sunny is the picture of health. Here she is ringing in the new year in her new cage. We call it Sunny’s condo. She has just started taking little naps on the bottom of the cage. A habit I think she picked up from Emmy.

Christmas Haul

Here is the flock with their holiday presents.
Sido did not want her photo taken…

Here is Ozzie – he was brave and started nibbling right away.

Sunny being her usual sweet self.

Emmy is not so sure about this star footie toy.

A nice little pose from Felix.

Cooper is chatting up the marshmallows. Destruction to soon follow.

Sido and the budgies also enjoyed some Christmas millet. It was a lovely holiday.
*The flock wanted me to be sure to thank friends Kelle and John for the marshmallows and Christmas toy. xoxo

New Toy – June

This month’s toy is Balsa Bliss by Perky Parrot Toys.

Sunny and Cooper were on this toy as soon as I put it in the cage. Balsa is definitely the most popular toy these days.

All the photos came out a little blurry – as the budgies were non stop nibbling.
It looks like Sunny highly recommends the Balsa Bliss.
