Re: Fatty Dingdong the fabulous rude parakeet

He has turned into a flying piranha. O.O It's hormonal, I think. Think he has started puberty. It's been so long since I've had a young bird. Wow this is awful and he is so pleased with himself. I don't react and he doesn't bite me much, but when them face feathers come up, ooooooooooooh boyo! He has a few special favorite toys, that I know I'll get it good if I ask him to step up from them (one is a swing, another is the jingle ball cat toy). Also if he gets too focused on Alex or if he is on top of Alex's cage while Alex is napping. Planning to get a table top play gym with a solid floor to put on top of Mr. Bird's cage so Fatty won't pester him as much. Should I let him keep the swing and jingle ball? His cage is due for a rearrange and I'm not sure what to do.

Alex's girlfriend doesn't live with him (stuffed ostrich cat toy), and it's been probably since I had budgies as a kid since I had a young bird. All rescues since then. Gee, even the hormonal young male amazon wasn't as bad as this little feathered ball of chaos and cuss words.

In a weird way this is just another thing to enjoy about him. He's a budgie; he has a small beak and it doesn't do any actual damage. It's weirdly cute, like a hamster would be while stabbing you with a switchblade or something.

Re: Fatty Dingdong the fabulous rude parakeet

LOL..."Fatty Dingdong"....Sorry I just crack up when I see that name

There is never enough talk about budgies in my mind.
When someone says parakeet or budgie,some people (like me ) think "sparrow"..just your plain jane..a bird is all..there's a bazillion of 'em around..how untrue..an amazing little ball of fluff and attitude, mischief and personality there ought to be a law...EVERYONE should be owned by one of these wonderful devil's at least once in their lives

Fatty sounds like an awesome guy. He is being your typical budgie..nothin' is gonna slow him down and you cant make me!!


here we go...#teamfatty

Re: Fatty Dingdong the fabulous rude parakeet

Fatty met my special friend today for the first time. Hahahaha ohhhhh man is Fatty smitten. Tho my guy was wearing a tannish green shirt so that could have played a part. Hmm, but Fatty even chattered a bit in his face, so I think I may have some competition.... for both of their attention!

Fatty was even nice enough to only bite him twice, to which he did not respond. Hmmmmm, I see a potential bird person.. (He is a "critters" person already, but we all know bird people are a special breed of crazy )

And we now have evidence that The Dingdongs is a troll. When presented with an amulent that protects against elves and trolls, he took off flying like I had just told him I was going to pluck his feathers out for a tiny pillow or something.

Re: Fatty Dingdong the fabulous rude parakeet

Fatty is like a little sound mirror sometimes. Earlier I was holding Alex and making kissy noises and Fatty starts making kissy noises from across the room where he had been flirting with a bottle of water and was now staring at Alex and I. I made a different noise, he copied it. I talk to Alex, he copies it. We went back and forth like this for a few minutes before he got *super* jealous and flew over, chatted with us for a bit, then flew back to Alex's cage and started boxing and flirting with the bottle of water again. Silly little jealous thing.

Re: Fatty Dingdong the fabulous rude parakeet

He is so adorable! I love budgies - my next addition will be a budgie or a cockatiel (or if I’m lucky....both)

Re: Fatty Dingdong the fabulous rude parakeet

Aww thanks. Both of those species are great choices (but I may be biased)!

Fatty is a very strange eater. He does not like millet. O.O never met a bird who didn't like millet before. On the spray, loose in a seed mix.. doesn't like millet. Proso, senegal, japanese, red, none of it. What a freaking weirdo. And I just got a 5 lb box of spray millet. At least Alex loves it and the little one seems to like ripping it off the cob and hulling it. Swallowing seeds is still just asking a little too much.

I'm literally looking at a little green bird playing with a toy and utterly ignore a spray millet in his cage. This is not new, he has never liked millet. Weirdo. I got him a bag of "oat sprays", aince he loves oats so much. We will see if he goes after it.

Re: Fatty Dingdong the fabulous rude parakeet

Pray tell, how did this little star get his name? Not the rude parakeet part (that's obvious) but the Fatty Dingdong part? I thought I had asked this already, but may have failed to hit Submit!

Anyway, inquiring minds want to know!

Re: Fatty Dingdong the fabulous rude parakeet

Oh, sorry! You totall already asked and I forgot to answer. A while ago Ishowed the tv show "Metalocalypse" to a friend of mine, and he quite liked it and has since become utterly obsessed with it. It follows a lovably misguided death metal band through some pretty ridiculous and usualy very, very gory misadventures. In one episode, they become super successfull and "make too much money" so have to get tax writeoffs in a hurry. Their misguided selves adopt a fat kid thinking it would be a tax write off. They name him "Fatty Dingdong" and basically treat him like a dog and it's just absolutely ridiculous. They get him neutered to calm him down because it would be cruel to stop feeding him nothing but junk food, and in the end they decide it's kindest to set him free. They release their adopted son on an island they had bought and set up as a "home for wayward kitties", who promptly attack him. The episode ends with the band flying away waving to Fatty from a helicopter saying "oh he'll be fine, he's fat".

My friend suggested I name him Fatty Dingdong after the character and I just couldn't say no. Lol
