New little boy!!

Everyone who knows me, knows that regardless of how long I have had birds, Budgies are one of my all time favorites. Espeically English budgies.

I had a decision to make about a month ago... Since we experienced the loss of little Twigs, Mink just hasn't been as happy as she was when she had a friend. While Mink is hand tame, she is not used to living alone, and would prefer to have a same species friend to share her spacious cage with. She is very much alone when I'm gone during the day, because I keep the budgies in a separate area of the house (for their safety) away from the parrots.

Although I've said before that I personally feel maxed out with birds, the above reason with the consideration of Mink is why I've made the decision to add the new boy, and he will be in the same cage as Mink, so no extra work there, and they'll have each other to keep company just as Twigs did when he was with us.

So here he is! Sweet baby Chip . He has been weaned for a couple weeks and is a hand fed, hand tame English budgie. Cinnamon Sky blue color mutation. He will be coming home tomorrow (Wednesday).

Congratulations! Look at that sweet little face! Chip is darling, Julie! I hope Mink will cheer up with a new room mate.

Re: New little boy!!

Thank you Allee! I have to put the finishing touches in his quarantine cage tonight! They won't be meeting for a while, but they can chirp to each other.

He seemed to be a nice boy and have a docile temperament, as I handled him at the bird store and watched him interact with his cage mates. I think he and Mink will be a good match.

Re: New little boy!!

Hi Chip you are Adorable and a very Lucky boy to be coming to live with Mink and Ravensgryf and the rest of the flock...you are doing the right thing for Mink...I know that from how sad PeterPan was when my Roger passed and even though Peter Pan is not a budgie your little budgie Mink was grieving too and this is just what she needs. I love Budgies too. Chip is Gorgeous

Re: New little boy!!

Thank you Birdigirl . Mink was definitely grieving at first. She was very cranky for the first few days, then went into a deep depression and wouldn't eat as much or do much of anything, and scoot away to the back when I'd approach, as if she was saying "just leave me alone now". She has adjusted, but I can't help but feel she needs a companion when I'm not at home, as she is not near the parrots at all. Birds are so resilient. Even though they grieve loss, they "get over it" and can move on so quickly.

Re: New little boy!!

Super cute! I'm pretty sure this is the lil guy in the same cage as the green one I almost got hypnotized into bringing home last weekend lol Love the name Chip how adorable.

Did ya see the dilute green check while you were there? omg that lil fella was so hysterically funny... kept giving me part of his paper towel to hold and then rolling up like a burrito in it lol

I try so hard to go in and run out with blinders on but it's impossible to not play with them all

Re: New little boy!!

Thanks TexasWade, Al, Christine, Graciesmom! How funny you recognize where it is lol! I used to live down there but now I'm about an hour away. That's where Mink came from. I trust that store. I did see the one GCC I think you're talking about who was right by the budgies. He was adorable, you're right! Christine, I know how much you want a budgie .
