Default Together at last!

Here are Cloud (heavy pied cobalt, female), Ninja (yellowface sky violet, male) and Waffles (greywing visual violet, male, English). Waffles is done with quarantine and they're all getting used to one another. I just put them in a new cage, hence the wide eyed expressions. Poor Cloud still hasn't grown in enough primaries to fly, so I had to put in tons of perches and stuff in the new cage so she won't hurt herself if she tries to do one of her "I'm-flapping-my-wings-like-crazy-and-I-just-know-this-is-IT-I-CAN-DO-IT-here-I-go!" leaps of death which still ends in her dropping like a rock. Poor girl.

Anywho, here they are!

Gorgeous little flock you have there! I love the mix of colours on your Waffles.

I love this, it gave me a good laugh
It reminds me of a sentence I read in a book years ago, "The spaceship hung in the air like a brick doesn't"

Thanks all! I think all three are gorgeous and I clearly have a thing for the blue/violet side of the budgie color spectrum.

Yes. This is poor Cloud. The other sucky thing about her ridiculous clip is that the new feathers she's growing in are at risk. We had an issue a couple of weeks ago where she broke a blood feather, it was a new primary coming in. I was able to get the bleeding under control right away and had to remove the feather, but we were both traumatized by it and now that feather has to start all over again. She has another new primary that's longer than the rest and I'm keeping a close eye on her to make sure it doesn't break.

I have clipped both Waffles and Ninja after learning as much as I could about it. I clipped Waffles perfectly, in that he can fly easily, but not fast and not high, so he's safer in the house until he gets used to it. I clipped Ninja's once I noticed they were almost grown in because he's still not tame and has never tried to fly around the house, so I don't want him to suddenly bolt and get himself hurt. I clipped his wings the same length as Waffles' since it's clear that's the appropriate length, which is really just a trim of the tips of the primaries. Poor Cloud had her primaries cut all the way down to the, what are they called, secondary feathers? I don't understand the reasoning behind this at all.

ANYWAYS. I'm all for clipping for safety, when it's needed, but there's no reason to clip them so far back and it's putting the poor bird at such risk!

They are all so pretty! I hope Cloud gets her flight feathers back soon, poor thing.
