I cannot get over the difference between Hugo and my other budgies ... Hugo is massive, and he reminds me of something out of the Looney Tunes. He's also very clumsy. I came home today to find he'd fallen into his water dish - soaked wet through and feeling very sorry for himself, he'd had a mad flap and there were seeds everywhere. Watching him move around his cage it's obvious he's not used to different perches, cage height etc; but when he wants to negotiate something he bobs his head, concentrates and then just THROWS himself at it ... He falls alot, and he actually shot halfway through his hanging rings today before he got wedged and had to flap and wriggle to get out He's been much more vocal and active today. He is VERY easy to handle even tho he's not used to it. He's not a bad flier, considering he's never really flown before. He's kinda like a feathery helicopter

He came out for a change of scenery today and I got a couple of quick snaps.









So far so good, all in all. Fred isn't nearly as vocal or excited hearing Hugo. I do hope they will be friends later.

I love Hugo's puffy cheeks on that first pic, he's so cute!
Maybe his clumsiness will go away once he is more familiar with all corners of the cage. I do hope your Fred will get to be in high spirits soon.

I hope Fred likes him. I get the feeling that Hugo is way more of a people bird that Herbie ever was, which may mean he's with us more than Fred. Hugo squeaks at me and leans into my finger when I give him a scratch. He even cuddles up under my chin. He's so curious about everything, and had a few go's at playing with a bell ball and rolling canary today. He was chirping earlier so I made kissing noises at him and we went back and forth like that for ages. He's nothing like any budgie I've ever known.

Am I imagining it or are English vastly different to the pet types?

I personally think there are different personalities between the two sides,
English always seem much more laid back and easier to handle
Where as pet/parakeets are more flighty and nippy.

That's just what I've noticed with having both in my flock.

Huge is beautiful by the way!

I was lucky, I work with the breeder's sister in law - so for 30 I got Hugo and five big portions of various freeze dried veg, fruit and herbs to soak and feed him daily. It'll last me a long time. Also if he ever gets ill I can go to the breeder for advice, various tonics etc. I could've paid up to 45 for a pet quality bird from him ... I reckon a show bird would've been more. If he carries on the way he is, so laid back and sweet and curious, he'll have been worth every penny and more

I'm seeing a big difference already. Maybe it's because he's so young, maybe it's because he didn't have a wild aviary/pet store experience ... he's so silly tho! He was hanging upside earlier, 'cause he'd shook himself and lost his balance. Entertainment value lol

And don't even get me started on the flapping sound his feet make on the wood floors. I actually snorted

Yes he is Dee I was looking for a pied bird and my eyes skipped over Hugo about 20 times, think he was plain, before I bothered to have a closer look. How wrong was I!
