So much for hand taming Casper! Q is over and I just felt so bad for him being on his own. He has such spirit and reminds me a lot of Frankie my first bird.
At first he was a little bully! He still can be and Buzz and he ganged up on Moe. I never saw that coming as I've always seen Moe as the leader. After removing little bully boy from the mansion a couple of times and putting him back in his smaller cage when he bullied Moe he seems to have settled down. Now they all seem to be getting on, but he is much more bonded to Buzz than Moe (again never saw that coming). Also funny how I thought putting a younger new budgie into their big cage would mean HE would be bullied but not so.
Anyhow, they are all so cute together. I just love them. Casper rules the roost for sure and Buzz and Moe ADORE him. They both feed him, preen him, follow him around like stalkers. He laps it up and then just pecks at them when he's had enough. He puts up with a lot as they just do not leave him alone!
Here are some photos of out of cage time where at least he gets some peace and quiet from them. They are such a happy little gang. I love them to pieces. The last one captures Casper's personality - he has to go one better than all the rest.
He is the only one who has ever sat on the curtain rail, on top of the air-conditioner, on the fan. Buzz and Moe were just happy to land on the screen. He will teach them bad habits; I just know it!
