Toby and Mac's goodies arrived yesterday, so I added a couple new things for them. Since anything new scares the bejeezus out of them, I can only introduce one or two things at a time....then it takes hours/days for them to finally get up the nerve to check said new items out.

Today, I hung a Christmas star toy and replaced one of the generic dowel rod perches with a new manzanita perch for them. They seem to think the star is really a budgie eating monster, and the new perch is probably it's tongue. Mac did finally get up the nerve to sit on one end of the perch (far far away from the monster's star shaped mouth, of course). I was proud of him!

Last night I tried to put a disco ball toy in for them.... They seemed convinced that all the little mirrored facets in the ball were sure to suck them into various alter dimensions, and therefore they must frantically fly about the cage to avoid it. Needless to say I removed it after a couple of minutes. I'll try again in a few days.

Anyway, I managed to catch a pic of Mac's brave attempt to subdue the manzanita perch. Toby's having none of it. LOL!

This was their initial reaction Silly boys!

Your descriptions are priceless!

May I make a suggestion? Try hanging new toys, perches etc. outside the cage in the budgies' line of sight for a few days. After a few days, you can introduce any new toy or perch in the morning hours in order to give Toby and Mac the entire day to get used to it before bedtime.

This will help prevent any stress/anxiety over issues such as being eaten by a horrible monster with a star-shaped mouth and manzanita tongue.

Hehehe! Thank you. I just try to imagine what must be going through their little minds.


ETA: FaeryBee, that's good advice! Feeling a little sheepish for not having thought of that before sending the poor fids into orbit. I'll do that from now on. Thank you!!!

I was also going to say that, but Faery beat me to it!

Mallorn is very afraid of new things and every time I get her anything, I leave it where she can see it, then I play with it, then I move it closer, etc. Eventually (it may take a few days or a few hours), she comes to the cage bars to explore it and then I know she's ok with me putting it in her cage

I see your boys have gotten some early Christmas presents and once they realize the toys aren't there to get them, they will make good use of them.
