Re: Picking up 2 budgies tomorrow!! :)

So I've been texting with Collene this morning (Cloud and Lemon's owner), and she's told me a bit more info on why she's rehoming them...

Apparently Cloud is hers, but Lemon was her ex's and she ended up with him anyways...she's living with her sister and her sister's cat sneaks into her room and messes with the birds and knocks the cage over she also has an 8 week old puppy and she just found out he has a heart defect, so she's got a lot going on and felt that Cloud and Lemon deserve a better home. She said she's glad they're going to a good home....little does she know they'll be spoiled rotten!!! Hahaha

Re: Picking up 2 budgies tomorrow!! :)

Here's another picture she sent me of Cloud


She said she's been trying to get Cloud to talk but hasn't had any success yet... And they don't like to be separated. If one gets taken out the other will "freak out" until they're back together. And their wings are clipped.

Lemon is a male, cloud looks to be female, both are very nice looking!

Thank you for confirming!! Just curious- how did you tell he's male for sure? His cere looks bluish in the first pic but not very blue at all in the second....

Re: Picking up 2 budgies tomorrow!! :)

it's just the lighting Shirre....I also noticed Cloud is banded, she looks really young to me, the bars across her head are right down to her cere, which indicates she is young....is Lemon banded?

do you know if they are siblings?

Oh ok, that makes sense lol
Yes- I saw cloud has a band, I'm not sure if lemon has a band- but I'll have them removed when they go for check ups.

I'm not sure if they're siblings- they both came from petco

Re: Picking up 2 budgies tomorrow!! :)

I did notice her bars- I've read that before...if their bars are like that then they're young- which makes sense because Quigley is about 2.5 yrs old and her bars have slowly "receded"

She did tell me they're young- less than a year old.
