Default Finally the story of my 3 budgies...

OK - so it's taken me almost 7 years to get to posting some pictures of my flock! Back then I had a better camera, and my birds were very young, so I could get closer to them. Now, as I never tamed them, (not wanting to get too attached), it's hard to get a good picture. Anyway, here goes...

I picked out these 2 at a Petco - I named them Budgie Boy and Butter Bean:



They were the best of friends













Where one would go



the other would follow



They lived happily together for several months.

Then something bad happened - One day I clipped Butter Bean's nails too short, and hurt her. She immediately became so afraid of me, that every time I came near the birds, she would savagely attack Budgie boy, and make him scream. It was awful. I feared she might really injure the little guy, and I didn't know how to deal with her, as I felt so nervous and guilty; so I gave her to my good friend, Joyce, a fantastic bird person.

Budgie Boy was desolate.





Although he had been attacked and hurt by her, he still adored Butter Bean, and mourned and pined for her, day after day. I could not console him - he wanted a Bird friend.

So I went and got Baby Bluebie.

Budgie Boy was beside himself with joy - he ran Right over to Bluebie, put his foot on him, and claimed him as his Best Friend Forever.







Happy months went by...

Meanwhile, Butter Bean was Thriving at Joyce's house. She had become super tame, had the run of the house, and socialized with every family member, including little Cameron, here













But Joyce thought Butter Bean should have a life with other birds - so she gave her back to me, to see if she would get along with my 2 boys now.

Bingo! Roaring success!!!!! Butter Bean had grown into the attractive, desirable Golden Princess, and the boys were absolutely smitten. For her part, she went right into season, although she never laid an egg, (thank God). After that first time, The Princess has never gone back into season again for over 6 years, earning her the title of The Virgin Queen.

This ménage à trois has worked out famously, for the most part - My boys are still BFFs, and The Princess gives each of them special attention separately. It's extremely rare for them to fight amongst each other...









As it happens, I have, of course, gotten Way too attached, in Spite of my intentions - oh well, how could I NOT?!?!!!

Thanks for reading!

I'm THRILLED that you've finally decided to share the wonderful story of BudgieBoy, Bluebie and Princess Beatrix!

They are all adorable and just as cute as can be.
The pictures are wonderful and I enjoyed your post more than I can say.

Thank you!

What a heartwarming story, Ollie

I loved hearing all about how your little flock came to be, and the pictures were beautiful.

So happy to hear they are all well and reunited

Thank you for sharing this, it made me smile

OH Ollie I am so glad you did share your budgie's story with us all, I truly had a smile and a tear from the lovely heart warming love and care that is obviously put into your flocks welfare and happiness.
They are beautiful budgies all three of them and the happy ending is always a winner. We are all guilty of being too attached to our babies, but deep down we all wouldn't have it any other way I am sure. Thankyou for sharing these lovely pictures we will be waiting for the next instalment hoping it won't be quite as long for the first
