Amazingly enough, Custards lump(xanthoma) has shrunk.
These photos were taken on the 9th and the 20th of July. In the 20th of July photo, the budgie on the left is George, Custard is on the right.
You can see that there is a big difference. I am not sure why it’s happened.
Custard has been eating a lot of sweetcorn and we also started the budgies on a new seed mix – Haiths Budgie Bravo a week and a half ago. It does have less oats and more canary seeds in it so perhaps it’s healthier.
Anyway, great news!
The budgies have been enjoying the sunny weather, even though at times it’s been 29 Celsius in my front room, despite having windows open (I have window screens)
I have offered them baths several times but the most they have managed is to drink from their favourite bath. I am not sure I have ever seen Sky have a bath!
Anyway here are photos of them:
These are some of my favourite videos of budgies past.
Miss you all my little friends. Hector is still with us, but all of the other birds in these videos are in budgie heaven, eating lots of millet.

JoJo has very strong opinions on most things.
But sometimes even the mighty hen likes a song or two
Some videos showing Basil and Blithe sitting together and also Basil on a swing.
Basil is the Grey, Greywing bird and Blithe is a double factor spangle (mostly white)
A few videos of Blithe being his usual silly self.
Blithe tightrope walking
Blithe the little tyke
Hector and I played the “Tap tap tap” game the other day.. there are no rules for the game, just to have fun.
Sometimes Blithe annoys Hector. To get us to come over and rescue him, Hector flaps his wings.
