Lucy and George

Lucy has been with us for 3 months now. She was approximately 6 months old when she joined us. She had a white cere, but now it’s turned brown, meaning that she’s becoming an adult.

She’s struck up a very good friendship with George and I even saw her preen him a couple of days ago. This will be lovely for George because he has not been preened by another budgie since his best friend Snowy died in March 2014.

I managed to get photos of George feeding Lucy and I’ll show one of her when she had not long arrived and had a white cere.

The Progress of Pete and Polly

It’s been two months since Pete and Polly joined us.

They have made some great progress in that time. Both Pete and Polly have been into Billybob’s cage to explore. Polly seemed to enjoy sitting with Lucy. Pete especially liked playing with the mirrors and looking at his pretty little face.

Pete also does a funny thing. He walks backwards when he’s showing off to Polly on the roof of their cage.

They have both tried eating the herb basil, also they like red millet. Polly likes to bite balsa wood blocks, so I’ve ordered some more as they do not last long!

Has anyone had a bath?

I walked into the living room having had my shower, only to notice these two little wet budgies looking rather pleased with themselves.

Polly and Pete had a dunk in their water trough.

They’re now busy preening and drying themselves off.

A Soggy Polly

Polly has taken to having a bath in her water trough.

She had another one this morning and I managed to get a photo.

Blithe introduces himself to Pete and Polly

Hi guys I am Blithe, I used to be the naughty boy of the gang, but these days I am a lot better and I have friends.

Welcome to our home.

Meet Pete and Polly

Say hello to Pete and Polly. We took them in 4 weeks ago as their owners needed to find them a new home. Pete was found outside 4 years ago and Polly was acquired to be his friend. Polly is 3, but we do not know Petes age, so we’re estimating him at 4 years old.

When budgies have reached adulthood (approximately 12 months old), there is no real way of telling how old they are. So Pete could be 4 years old, or even 10, we don’t know!

Interestingly Custard has a similar story and also looks similar to Pete, so we’re wondering if they could have been nest-mates.

If there are any typos in this post, it’s because Hector is on my left hand and doesn’t like my attention being taken away from him.

Billybob is 10 years old

It was Billybob’s birthday yesterday, he was 10 years old!

He had a nice piece of carrot to eat and some millet.
