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.. :)

Budgie Groups

We have noticed more and more that the budgies are spending time together in their various colour groups.

A few days ago when a Crow flew past the window, the budgies flew up high.. they are..

Sky, Blithe..

Billybob, George and Custard.

Watch it..

JoJo only bites when she absolutely has to.. (frequently)

“well I did warn you” she says.

JoJo’s new Platform

We ordered JoJo a kabob platform so that she could eat vegetables and generally chew stuff in more comfort.

This is her yesterday checking it out from a safe distance.

Just before this, she was running around on the floor and I took some photos of her. I thought that she was going to be scared of the camera but she actually enjoyed it and came right up to it.

Here are the photos!

All budgies Past and Present.. together!

My lovely friend Sam drew a picture of my birds past and present.. all sitting together on a tree.

Isn’t it wonderful? :)

I am going to get a frame and put it on the wall in my living room.

JoJo’s new cage layout

As JoJo cannot fly, she is in her cage a lot of the time. So we decided to adapt her cage a little more with some strategically placed rope perches.

These perches have enabled her to use more of her cage and climb about a bit.

We have already noticed that she seems happier with this. I even saw her attempt two small “budgie head-bobs” in front of her pink mirror while singing in her strange squeaky squawky way.

Every evening JoJo gets to come and sit on my shoulder for half an hour or so, sometimes with a millet enticement, sometimes not. This gives her a break from her cage.

The other budgies see her new cage layout as a bit of a novelty and also like to run up and down the rope perches.
