Photos of the budgies this morning

George and Custard "Why are you always taking photographs of me"

Hector chasing me around in the morning until I pay him some attention.

We have had many discussions about BillyBob’s genetic mutation this week on Facebook and the Budgerigars Forum (

It has been decided that he is "Opaline, Dominant pied, Dilute, Grey Green"

Sky looking his usual cool self.

My Roswell looking as pretty and photogenic as ever.

Blithe (white bird) playing with Billybob (Top) and George.

JoJo having a rest. She was only pretending to be asleep.

Basil (right) feeding his best friend Roswell.

Getting Rid of Seed husks for your birds

I tried all sorts of ways to get rid of the seed husks from the top of my birds pots so that they could get to the unhusked seed below.

I tried a little vacuum, which was only mildly successful.

The method I settled on was this one.

I take the bowl of seed..

Then tilt it to the left and tap the right side. This make all of the husks come to the top and fall to one side.

Then I can just move the husks off into the bin.

The finished bowl should look like this:

I hope this is helpful.

JoJo and her expensive tastes

Sometimes my little JoJo sits on the floor with me. I try to get her attention with a few toys.

Unfortunately she doesn’t really play so she goes straight for the Red Millet.

If I gave her the choice between a large spray of white/yellow millet and a tiny sprig of Red.

She always goes for the Red.

Quality not quantity..

Billybob, George and Custard relax for the evening

Billybob, George and Custard like to spend some time relaxing together on the swing in the evenings.

They are quite often to be found like this.

Must be a yellow thing. :)

Budgie flock..

JoJo and Billybob are in their cage preening. But all seven of the other birds have squeezed themselves into the smallest cage (there are 3 cages) together.
Also they are sitting in their colour groups.

Cute :)

Old Photos of my first budgies

I was looking around on my old photobox account and I found these old photos of Eric and Monty.

They were my first two budgies back in November 2009, this would have been taken just over a week after we brought them home.

Unfortunately they have passed on since, but will never be forgotten.

Eric loved his swing and Monty was always in charge (when Eric let him be)

Miss you guys.

Millet Bribery

We recently replaced part of the budgies swing with a sturdier one (thanks natural bird product company).
But as usual had to bribe the budgies with millet to go anywhere near it.

Eventually they have given in and they are now using the new Swing-Toy.

Clever Buds.. :)
