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.
We have bought another Trixie Wooden Bird playground… it’s number 3 actually!
Blithe decided to test it out… could have been the millet that helped with this decision..
Blithe came to stay with us on the 25th of May.. he’s only 6 months old (7 now) and full of energy!
Welcome little buddy :)
The boys all decided that they needed a bath..
If you look closely you can see new boy Blithe joining in..
He’s the white one.. :)
Blithe has been with us for around 4 weeks..
Today the budgies have been partaking in a little grass that I grew for them.
Well… some of them have stared at it for a bit anyway.. they’re brave little soldiers..
Custard: I shall laugh at it and show it who is boss.
Roswell: I can see it pretty clearly from up here.
JoJo: In stealth mode, I can sneak up on it.
