Re: The Lovebird Gang

The gang got another addition! Not a lovebird, and won't be sharing her living space with them, but still is an addition

A tirquoise-white parakeet girl We were told it's a female, 2 months old. An old man has a pair which bred and he gave all the offspring away except this gal. I always wanted a white/white-detailed budgie and my dad reeeally wanted a bird that can talk and this one was up for adoption so we picked it up.

For now she's in the transport cage but we put in an order yesterday to get a custom made cage for her to match the ones the lovies have, should come by soon. It's gonna be 70cm tall, about 50cm wide and 40-45cm deep (same dimensions as lovies have, just a bit narrower since there's only 1 bird gonna be in it).

She is very sweet and possibly a male not a female, but really it's not a problem We named her Picek, which was the nickname of my old budgie that passed away about 4 years ago

Re: The Lovebird Gang

Letting everyone know how the flock is doing Even though there aren't any replies

Zloba (below) and Zora (above) are slowly starting to realize I'm not out to get them and don't make a fuss when I come near them or put my hand in the cage anymore Still a long way to go!



Max ate from my hand the other day when they were all out of their cage, which is AMAZING progress, I managed to even record it!



And Picek, the newest arrival, is learning to perch on my finger, is already happy to sit on it but isn't still 100% sure with my hand in her cage. But we had her for a really short time so this is awesome progress as well!

Re: The Lovebird Gang

Such a beautiful flock! And getting the necessary trust for a skittish bird to eat from your hand is huge! Patience and persistence has gotten you this far, and will get you further yet.

And congratulations on your newest flock member! I take it Picek is going through the proper quarantine? ;p

Re: The Lovebird Gang

The gang has officially met and the lovies like the budgie! Seems I was lucky!

Also the budgie got her cage properly done with wooden perches and wooden toys (has only 1 plastic corner perch because my dad really wanted me to leave that one in haha), I made some DIY perches with rope and a half of what used to be a wooden (bird toy) ladder, a custom swing and stuff like that.

She's still getting to know the big cage and all the big stuff in it but she's very sweet. I set up a photo-background for them yesterday so that they have a nicer setup!
