New Boy Charlie
On Sunday we rehomed a new boy called Charlie, he’s a Sky Blue just like my Monty – but nowhere near as bonkers! His owner Sue wasn’t able to give him a larger cage and flight time and thought he would be better off somewhere where he could have these.
Welcome to number 10.
At the moment he is in quarantine as should be customary with all new budgies.
When we first got Charlie home I made up the small cage (which is the same size as his previous cage) for him and put a few things in, not too many so as not to overwhelm the little tyke. I also partially covered him so that he would feel more relaxed.
Just to make sure he would eat I pegged a sprig of millet in front of his mirror. If the budgie in the mirror looked like he was enjoying his food then so would Charlie.
Charlies seed is in an orange seed pot. I was worried that he’d be scared of this as it’s so different to what he came with, but I needed not be concerned, I have seen him eat from it.
Charlie loves his Lantern. He also likes to keep an eye on me with it.
