Hubby will be gone working today, so I'll be alone unless I can find a friend or someone to go with me. I don't really want to go alone either

BUSY parking lot area sounds like a good idea then.

Re: Picking up 2 budgies tomorrow!! :)

I know- working in a bank for 10 years made me really paranoid and skeptical of strangers lol

I can't wait to get them home and settled in! I won't be able to take them for check ups right away, so they'll be in quarantine in hubby's office (seperate air space).

Re: Picking up 2 budgies tomorrow!! :)

They're very cute!!!! Good luck getting them today! I've got two boys, adopted two awhile back and the female died for some reason then the male was murdered as he was going into cockatiels nest box to feed cockatiel chicks, the momma was not pleased. But my two boys that we rescued years ago are still doing well. So this time when someone give me another male I give him to my wonderful neighbor who loves animals. I figured two is what I must stay with.

Re: Picking up 2 budgies tomorrow!! :)

Shirre, I just had a good, long look at the pictures again. Now mind you I don't know all that much about budgies...but perhaps it's possible that Lemon is a boy???

Birds Online - General facts about budgies - How to find out about a budgie's sex?

I'm sure you'll get much better pics once you have them home safe and sound.

Re: Picking up 2 budgies tomorrow!! :)

Wendy-
Ya know, I actually had the same thought yesterday lol I think Lemon **might** be a boy...in the first picture Lemon's cere seems to look bluish, but in the second picture it doesn't...so I guess we'll find out for sure when I pick them up

I've had to borrow my BIL's suv for the day because the jetta's radiator seems to have a leak, along with a couple more issues and the kid will be staying with my MIL while I go pick up Cloud and lemon- I feel safer leaving him at home. Lol
