Here are a couple of pictures from today of JoJo and Basil.
JoJo has some Basil (the herb) around her face as she preens it into her feathers. I think she is trying to convince me that she’s the Hulk.
Basil (the budgie) is just looking as cute as ever.
Ever since Roswells best friend Jerry passed away, more than two years ago, he was in a state of depression.
But over the last few months he has got closer and closer to Basil.
Before this happened, he had lost weight due to depression, he was also sleeping a lot. I had started locking him in the cage in the morning with some millet to get his weight back up.
But now him and Basil are close friends, they feed each-other, preen each-other and Roswell is back up to his fighting weight.
Here they are, Roswell is the Normal Grey, Basil is the greywing (the lighter bird)
I couldn’t be happier for Roswell, all he ever wanted was a bird to take care of him :)
I am often asked how I cope with the noise of nine budgies. Like any parent knows, I live for this moment, when my little ones are in bed and I can relax..
Then the madness starts again in the morning.
