Does the music box make nice music?

Did you trim Cricket's talons yourself? My budgies (the ones that come out and land on us a lot) tend to get overgrown nails snagged in our clothing and then struggle trying to get their feet loose so they have to be trimmed at the vet. Even though I can easily handle them to do it myself, it requires two people (holder and trimmer) and I worry about trimming too close and hurting them.

Some people are like multi-layered Onions than others are one dimensional- I prefer the Onions, myself.
Yeah! It’s pretty nice!

Yup! And holy cow it was easy. I could see the quick and it was so easy. It wasn’t as easy as Rico though, since she understandably kicks more than Rico does. But it went quicker than Ice and Tea’s talons used to.

Onions are like people: they are both scrumptious according to this guy

So, did you hold Cricket in a towel when you trimmed her nails? Did you use a human type clipper? Do you file the edges? Did she get pissed at you? I ask because I need to trim Beau's nails and I don't want to have to take him to the vet to do it. I can easily hold him still while I do it and he has pale pink feet so I can see the quick easily vs Rocky who has deep blue feet.

I wonder, do budgies have ticklish feet?

I just used a shirt since I couldn’t find a towel, but it works the same.

I use bird nail clippers, as they are much easier than regular clippers, as you have more pressure control and precision.

I didn’t use a file, but if I do a weird angle on Rico’s talons and I’m unsure about the quick, I’ll sand it with a file slightly and let him go and give him a treat.

Yes, she was pretty mad about it. She was mad for a few days, but she’s coming back around. First bird who’s held a grudge, tbh.

I’ve never gone to a vet for a trim since it’s not necessary in my case, and we don’t want to be charged 50$ for a trim, or run the risk of my birds getting injured at one vet clinic nearby with a reputation of animal abuse *cough**couch*

What am I drawing? Who am I drawing? No one knows! Is it from L4D? Uh…… perhaps… definitely. Definitely from L4D.

Here’s the stinkeroni before I color him in.

He’s the 2nd best Special Infected in L4D! He may not be the stinky boyo that has been featured on this thread, several times (cough cough, Hunter cough cough), but he’s very much a stinkeroni indeed.

It took 1.5 hours to complete, but, here is our very smoky, very stinky, very tonguey, and very mutated smokah. Poor guy.

Rico_tiel I hate you.

I knew you'd do it, I called it.

Post more cricket instead....I have to erase this image from my mind.

She’s done! Thoughts?


Edit: Credit to clark_conure for the idea. They said “don’t draw a tentacle budgie”, which was really saying “do it.”. So, I did it 🥰

Also, they aren’t tentacles, they’re tongues. And her name is Tonguer.

Budgies are not cthulhu monsters!!!!!!!!! This is an abomination to all budgie kind....you are a blasphemer! AND NO RED EYES!

Why do you encourage her.....DonnaBudgie...(calling you out on this....) no red eyes.

Also Vampire_conure...the same.

BLASPHEMY!!!! Budgies are sweet birds that just live in the moment. Are not evil demons!
