Re: New little boy!!

Congrats Julie, and most of all, congrats to Mink on her handsome new friend! Did you get him from the same breeder you got Mink? I know you've talked about how wonderfully she was reared by them.

Re: New little boy!!

Very handsome boy you have there Julie...I love the blue on Budgies. My very first bird was a blue budgie and what a guy he was.

And I understand the grieving part too..Amy was dispondent when Smokey passed away, She would just sit on her resting perch all day not saying a word and it also effected my emotional wellbeing seeing my normally chatty and active 'zon like this..thats why I adopted Jonesy..

And now that BB is here..life is blissful once again

Re: New little boy!!

Thank you everyone .

April, yes I got him from the same bird store as Mink came from. The owner bred both of them, as he does many of the birds in his stores. I trust that store. They're great at making sure your baby is completely ready to come home and eating veggies before they let them go. New bird vet exam is complementary too.

LeaKP I agree budgies are very underrated, especially tame ones. Budgies were never my first bird. I had parrots many years before my first budgie. Just a few years ago I got completely hooked on them! They're such adorable little things.

Re: New little boy!!

Julie, Chip is absolutely gorgeous! What a beautiful colour he is. I bet Mink is going to fall in love as soon as she sees him
Please post pics when they meet after quarantine, I can't wait to see!
He has no idea how lucky he is that he gets to come live with you

Funny or actually sad that I did lol shows my shopaholic status... just too much fun in there I tell myself it's because I like to make sure Gracie's dry foods are super fresh. Yep he was right above them when I was there, rolling around in paper towels lol soo cute. I'm a big sucker for cute antics. Stopped by Brea location this week for my fix & an adorable caique hopped over to me, chirped and before I knew it jumped up my arm and was inside my shirt rolling around before I could process lol Super fast & funny.
Excuse me young man behind the counter lol assistance please? I think not lol I must have looked hysterical reaching in and going around in circles trying to corral the little bugger while not giving the whole store a peep show.

Good luck with your new one I'm sure he'll be a great addition

Re: New little boy!!

Budgies are the most amazing, adorable little guys. I LOVE their raspy little mimickry. I actually go watch them on YouTube, having none of my own.
