“new baby budgie”


Description from franny: yes, we have acquired a new baby...i know i said i wouldn't keep another caged creature but we lost was ailing & with birdies they don't let on until it's too late (such brave little critters)...anyway her mate was bereft, calling out for her, & became quite morose..sooo he needed company...enter the new gal; sweet little yellow face, gorgeous aqua feathers & white/grey speckled wings...i was a little concerned about placing such a young chickie with a mature male but she's already bossing him around & has given me several sharp bites with a vicious beak! LOL!!!

    Aww! I love little budgies! So happy you found a new friend for your male bird.
    Watch your fingers! Those little hens can be quite sassy and they bite much harder than the males!
    Love your pick too! Fabulous colors!

    I love budgies! We had a few when I was still living at my parents’ house. One learned to talk and he was soo much fun. We hardly ever shut him in his cage- he had free run of the house and he loved to be with the people (he thought he was one). He was a brave little soul, too, suffering from foot problems that the vet couldn’t solve. I am so happy for you and the bereft male. That sassy little thing should make a great companion and she will get used to your fingers in time. You have perfect budgie colors here! Love this!!!

    thanks all!…we’ve named her LOLA (‘Lolita’ was an option, also!) & she is so sassy!…has claimed top perch & the swing & is already flirting with the ‘boy next door’…so much for the solution to one problem!…

    Franny, what a lovely pick to introduce Lola to us! :) I’m sorry your female bird passed on & am glad your sad story had a happy ending — both for you & the male bird.

    Her name reminds me of the song “Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets…..” from the musical “Damn Yankees”! ;)
