Re: Fatty Dingdong the fabulous rude parakeet

Fatty's favorite phrase this morning seems to be, "Whatcha doing, Bleach?"

It does not exactly sound like he is saying "bleach"... 😆😆 I never taught him the female canine word..

Heh, TFW your s^&%posting parakeet starts making OC.

So proud. 😘

He has learned to say "kill yourself" and has spent the morning saying that, "hi Fatty" and "drink bleach" to himself in the reflection he makes in the shiny latch to Alex's cage.

When I praise him I don't usually use his name, but he said today "good bird, Fatty" while chatting to himself. Aaaadorable. He also has taken to squatting down in his oversized food dish (he's in a cage designed for a significantly larger bird, so is Alex) and chatting to himself. I think it is for the echo, tho I suppose he could be talking to a reflection.

Re: Fatty Dingdong the fabulous rude parakeet

Oh, and he has started to nibble at zupreem birdy fruitloops or whatever they call themselves. :P Still not a fan of veg, but we will get there. His "come here" is gaining distance as his feathers grow back in, whoo hoo.

from awful keyboard, new one was just delivered. hooking it up now

Re: Fatty Dingdong the fabulous rude parakeet

Ahhhhh omg. I just gave Fatty a kiss on the chest while he was on my hand and he didnt freak out at all. Just sorta looked at me like, "hey, uhh, human. Your beak is awful soft, maybe try someadis cuttlebone over here"

Yay progress! Tho taming a budger isn't usually too hard.

Re: Fatty Dingdong the fabulous rude parakeet

I also giggle whenever I see his name...he sounds like quite the character!
My Budgies only speak Budgie, and I'm really glad I can't understand what they call me when I am late with dinner.
