He's lovely. Is he a green-grey cinnamon, or a green-violet cinnamon?
Susan, I'm not sure what his color is. I asked and the shop owner said she didn't know what mutation he is. I think I'm so new to this still that I'm researching all kinds of stuff, but that hasn't got me going yet. I become almost obsessed with trying to learn about things that interest me. LOL When I start reading on colors, I look at the crosses of parents and whatnot and I say "Oooh, that is too much for my brain right now." He's more yellow and olive, and then has that lavender cheek patch and all that brown.
He's so puffy and soft and when I put my cheek against any of the three, I wish they could make a pillowcase that felt so heavenly. He's doesn't love my touch anymore, although I can kiss him all over and he will step up no problem. But he doesn't even want me to preen him anymore - he prefers that Oliver does it. So I'm okay with that. As long as I can still feel his soft feathers under my hand or on my cheek, I will be more than happy. I could be blindfolded and tell by weight which Budgerigar was placed onto my shoulder. LOL.
A good looking bird, living high off the hog by the look's of thing's....
They all love their food. I am very fortunate to live where there are year round farmers' markets. I like to support our local farmers, buy healthy stuff for my family to eat and each day I just use some of our food for the parrots. We all win. They like the veggies and greens more than their seed. But millet, no one turns that down.
