The benefit of being small

Monty is my smallest and yet most dominant budgie – he rules everything and thinks everything is his, including me.  He has a weird dominant stance that I have never seen in a budgie before (let me know if you have I would be intrigued)

Roswell landed at the top of the Tower of Terror earlier and Monty hopped and flew about around it until Roswell flew off. He was oblivious to Monty as he was busy preening himself, but I am sure that Monty still took it as a victory.

As two of my birds are exhibition budgies (Roswell and Snowy), bred to be shown off at shows, they are bigger than pet types although they seem just as energetic – perhaps because they have to keep up with their two pet type smaller friends!

But Monty is even smaller than Jerry, the other pet type and he has the tiniest little feet but manages to cling on to anything with one nail because he is so tiny and light.

Benefits if being small like Monty are…

You have lots more space than others and don’t feel cramped

So much space 18-7-10


You look cute and inoffensive, even though you aren’t

You can mock others and get away with it

Monty “Here we have Jerry and Roswell in their natural habitat, foraging for a ping pong ball. I wonder if they realise it’s not food?”

They don't notice 22-7-10


You fit in tiny and interesting places without pulling a muscle

Small is beautiful…but then so is big
