Re: New little boy!!

We're home from the store and vet exam. He did great . He is exhausted! Chip is a hand fed tame budgie, so that helps, he is very calm. This is his quarantine cage. In the 'real' cage he won't have dowel perches, and will have a ton of toys. Being a cinnamon, his back is actually brown, although it looks gray in the pics. I love his color.

Re: New little boy!!

When do you get the test results? And has he shown any interest in his toys?

Re: New little boy!!

Thank you !

Vet test results should be next week I think. This one is extremely interested in toys! Even though he was exhausted, and he only had newspaper on the bottom of his crate to "play" with, he started using a flap of paper as a toy. He was playing at the store, and almost immediately when he was put in his temporary cage, he started playing with a toy . He hopped on his swing, but I'm keeping an eye on him to make sure he knows how to get down, after all he's only 8 weeks old (past weaned). I've never seen any species start playing with toys so soon in an unfamiliar environment. I'm going to have to stock his cage with more things!

Edit: He has started to eat, and I saw that he can get down from his swing too. I've never had such a well adjusted budgie before. Usually they take a while to eat and play.

Yes already! I can't believe what a well adjusted bird Chip is! He explored his cage, ate some food, and started playing with his toys! He is tame and engaging and not afraid when you go up and talk to him. In his first couple hours home, he acted like he's already been here a while.

Chip is the first bird I've ever had (of any species) that has acted this comfortable upon first coming home. It's amazing.

Re: New little boy!!

Julie, I am so happy for you and Mink. Chip is stunning, and I agree the coloring is magnificent.

You did the right thing on every level, Julie. One more like-kind bird is minimal work!

Re: New little boy!!

Julie, your little guy is GORGEOUS! I love the English budgies. If I had the time, space, etc etc. I'd definitely have 2 or 2 or 20
