We took a trip to the zoo and they had this amazing aviary with about 500 budgies that would fly all over you and eat from your hand. I went straight out and found these 3 lil guys! We will be building an outdoor aviary in a couple weeks. I had this old cage (about a 3 1/2 x 3 x 2 1/2) so I just got 3 to start with. I will get several more when the aviary is complete. The blue one, "Blueberry", is a male. He is curious about me but still won't let me hold him. The greenish/blue, no name yet, is a female and does not like human interaction at all just yet. She is the only one that has bitten me and it hurt! The light colored one, "Rashberry", is a female I think and is the friendliest of all. It is a baby. The man said it had only been out of the nest a few weeks. I just love them all already. I give them fresh spinach, sweet potato, and bell pepper but they won't eat any of it yet. I have some spearmint in a pot in the cage. They like to hang out in it but doesn't seem to be nipping at it. They just like to eat their seed and millet spray. I want to get some solid yellow ones but waiting on my husband to get my outdoor pen ready.
May I ask about the spacing between the wires on the cage you have them in currently?
It is recommended that the wires on budgies' cages be no more than 1/2" apart.
It could be an optical illusion, but in the picture you posted it looks like your budgies might easily squeeze their heads into openings of the cage.
FaeryBee: It must be an illusion in the pic because it is a very small wire. I have not measured it but there is no way they could get their heads squeezed thru it It is probably just a half inch. I can barely fit my pinky finger thru the wire holes
