The vet said it's likely an old break from when he was a chick and that he was probably malnourished, which also caused one of his toes to not be able to grip. He's otherwise healthy and happy!

He is the sweetest little bird, he can fly but not as quick as my other budgie and he gets tired quickly but boy does he try! He's still pretty nervous around me but he's never bitten me even when I've had to hold him and he's always singing to his friend Piper. He even gets along with my GCC!

I'm so glad to have this little guy as part of my flock
Jester is so beautiful! I am so glad you brought him home and gave him a chance to be the happy boy he is.

I really love this picture, @Laurasea. Penny looks great surrounded by the flowers!

Re: January 2019 POTM

Thanks! It's a Camellia bush flowers in winter, not native so I didn't plant the previous owners did. But I do enjoy winter flowers!

PHOE..... WE LOVE/MISSED YOU!!!!!!!!!!


I have to say that... "Imperfect Kise"

She has broken feathers because she couldn't fly, Climbing all over her cage and falling down.

"Every time she falls, there goes a broken feather. "

She was always downside up in her cage,







Took six months back and forth to her vet. She is now a perfect spoiled BRAT, flying around and knocking things upside down.

Re: January 2019 POTM

Yes those magnificent fully feathered darlings are of course gorgeous, but it’s those “perfectly imperfect” types, maybe a little moth-eaten round the edges from the odd misadventure but proud and dignified nonetheless that tug on the heartstrings every time!

Kise is stunning. I am so thrilled that she is flying now, and has blossomed with your loving care.

Re: January 2019 POTM

My entry. This was cheddar's last day, she was ill her whole short life and even only hours from passing on, she was the most perfect imperfect baby bird I've ever loved.

Sweet, sweet Cheddar. I'm so glad she knew your love for her in her too short life, and that it comforted her. There is something so special about our perfectly imperfect babies.
