New Bird in Town

It’s time to let the cat out of the bag, open a can of worms and several other silly sayings…

I rehomed a new bird.  Her name is Abbie (it was Albie but we felt it too masculine for such a pretty little birdie so we altered one tiny letter) and she has been here since last Wednesday.

Her owners didn’t have enough time to spend with her and wanted her to be with other budgies. She did have a cage-mate a few years ago but he escaped and she has been on her own for a few years – with human interaction of course.

Abbie is four years old and a hen, her genetic mutation is Dominant Pied, Violet – we hope that she will be very happy here.

She has already bonded with Jerry and Hector, allowing both to feed her seed, in fact she rarely has to venture forth for food herself, she has the boys well-trained.

Her habits include biting the bars and hanging upside-down which she does even more frequently than Roswell.  We have noticed that she doesn’t sing as much as the boys and she makes strange high-pitched sounds line a mini-dolphin!

Here is a photo of the pretty new recruit

I am a pretty girl - agree or I will PECK YOU!

    She is such a cutie! Has she honoured you with a hen-style bite yet?!

      No bites yet, she has been biting some of the fitting though so I’ll have to watch her!
