Progress of a Blueboy

Blue boy has recently moved in with Roswell and Jerry. He didn’t have much to pack but he did bring with him nightly millet rations. He, Jerry and Roswell enjoy sharing these in the evening as a team-bonding experience.

It was decided that Hector and Abbie were being a bit mean to Blueboy, pushing him off the perch and not letting him eat. He was very reluctant to leave but now he enjoys his new digs.

Roswell and Jerry however are a lot kinder, of course there is a little shuffling about to get the best position but in the end they all eat happily side-by-side.

Blueboy is sleeping a lot better too – actually I have no idea whether he’d sleeping but he’s calmer and quieter at night. Much less stressed.

Yesterday I witnessed Blueboy sing twice, Very small songs and quite short but it’s the first time he has sang since September.

Each morning Lilek tries to bash beaks with a reluctant Blueboy. It’s good that other budgies are trying to socialise with him.

A new toy was bitten a bit the other day but Blueboy says it wasn’t him. Sometimes I wonder if they realise that I want them to bite these things and play with them or they think that they are being naughty!

    Good to hear that Blueboy has settled into his new digs. I am sure the addition of millet helped Roswell & Jerry to welcome him with open wings. ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope he continues to improve & starts singing more. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you Sweetpea. I am happy that he’s more settled too. I hated having to part him with Hector, but it’s only for the night anyway and he was being mean to him. The first time I did it Blueboy hated me for it he was practically crying like a small chick. I felt like a prize horrible person.

      The millet has definitely helped!

      They practically demand it now!

        I didn’t realise he was so attached to Hector, particularly as Hector seems to only have eyes for Abbie. It must have been awful when he was crying – good job for the millet. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes he was very attached to him and it worked with all three for a while, Hector would feed them both. Think it got too much for him sadly and he wanted to concentrate more on Abbie.

    See this post here they were such good friends:

    It was awful, poor little Blueboy.
