Play gym!

I bought a play gym the other day for the budgies. I needed something that would fit on the top of the bookshelf and (hopefully) prevent the budgies from chewing it up.

The budgies enjoy flying back and forth between the gym and their cage. I replaced the green globbie thing with more stuff for the budgies to chew. They weren’t using the swing, so I used the hooks to hang up some toys. And (for now) the budgies aren’t chewing on my bookcase…

Cooper’s Cuties

Meet Billie!

billie1Billie lives in the United Kingdom with Carly.


Billie is a nearly 6 months old yellow face dominant pied.
He loves to be out of his cage flying about and likes to sit on my head!
He’s just started talking, saying a few words/phrases like “you’re soo cute” “mummy’s baby budgie” “give me a kiss” “pretty birdy” and gives me kisses
He loves listening to other budgie videos on YouTube…this is where he’s learnt some words and phrases…then he goes crazy when I turn it off or it finishes
His favourite fruits are apple and strawberries and his favourite veg is lettuce,celery,spinach and carrots..he likes his veges more

He loves millet as his treat and will do almost anything for it! When he doesn’t want to go back into his cage I put some millet in his cage then he goes straight in
Billie loves his bell and likes ringing it by swinging on it shaking it so it rings..he also talks to his bell and kisses it saying “kiss kiss kiss” to it
