Thank you for the information on the lighting. I had read somewhere 3 hours for budgies but I have changed the timer so it will only come on 2 hours a day. It hangs about 20 inches from the bottom of the bulb to the top of the cage and the highest perches are about 6-7 inches below that. I just use one and it is in the middle of my double F050 cage set up so they can get away from it. I do plan to use another one for the other cage when I set it up as well.

Thank you Katherine. They are so different than my American budgies its almost like they are not the same species. They are very regal. I love their vocalizations to. They are really pleasant. A much deeper tone than the rest of my babies.

Smile Flying

Hi and Welcome the world of English budgies. Over the years we have raised many chicks and recovering adults using a round mosquito net for flight training
in a safe restricted area. We hang net from ceiling over our queen size bed with
a sheet to protect the bed spread. a small play gym provides a resting perch on the bed. The budgies love to climb and hold the net while the net turns and fly side to side. for babies and weak or wing amputee birds we let the birds hold on to an extend finger ad fly like babies gaining courage for that very first flight.
Some older birds develop arthritis but will try a few wingies as we call them.Birds
live and love to fly. Best wishes, Jo Ann

Thank you Deborah and JoAnn. I am looking forward to bringing them out of their shell and hope I can help them to reach their full capabilities so they can live a long and happy life. I will post updates on their progress. Petra actually just came out of the cage for the second time this evening which is a first and she is on the boing chewing on the cork wall. Also, a first. She has only come out of the cage to fill up on the evening seed ration that I put up on the play place and then she is right back in the cage for the rest of the night. It makes me feel good to see her exploring a bit.

Petra and Viggo are fortunate you've adopted them, Robin.

I know they will flourish under your care and I'll be looking forward to reading the updates.

Your birdies are so lucky to have you! I am curious how the flight training is going. Do give us an update at some point!
