Since making the birds the super big cage, I hadn't moved around any of the perches so I decided i'd do that this weekend.
Here's the new minimal look.
Okay so really, that was just after I had taken the majority of the perches out for a good clean and move about.
Thy have two less swings in the cage now so we'll see if that causes any upset tonight.
Jimmy and Tommy have decided today that they will be bestest friends. They were together nearly the whole morning and even now, I can see them together by the cage door.
I love this picture for Skye's indignant little face as Star flies a little too close.
It was also baby Henry's turn to meet the flock!
He came into the bird room (formerly known as my bedroom!) last week and spent some time in a cage with Sage and Skye and he's already coming along really well with Skye's help.
I moved some of Henry's bits into the Piano 6 cage and he's quite content in there. He has been in the super cage too but he feels more comfortable in the Piano right now.
Henry enjoyed exploring some of the new things in the room.

He's hanging out with them but he keeps himself out of the way. There's a lot of birds to meet but the birds who came to see him were very nice. The others just ignored him.
He's so tiny! Especially when he ducks down!
The drama with Jay and Skye from last weekend has blown over. Keeping the boys apart for a week has helped.
But that hasn't stopped Jay trying it on with the other girl budgies!
He tried to charm Lucy but she wasn't having any of it!
As a treat for the whole flock, I decided to get the bird bats out for them. Star and Josie just loved it and got themselves lovely and clean!
Form an orderly queue for the bath, please!
Star couldn't wait to get in!
It was so cute watching how the birds would run from one bath to another and I love the way they share so well. I did think maybe I need another bath for 12 birds come summer, but for now we're doing okay
I don't want to be rude, Star, but that water if pretty gross looking now!
How awkward, the ex on one side and the new bf on the other!
Tommy wasn't quite getting to grips with the point of the bath
Skye, Jimmy, Jenny and Stan all went in a little. The others licked the water off the outside of the bird baths.
Lucy didn't even come over to have a look.
Here she is, not getting involved, lol!
Stan having a little splash about.
Josie shows Jenny how to do it.
Jenny braves it!
Well, that's an interesting style, Jenny!
I love the water drops flying off of Star!
Josie and Star were very very wet!
"I shake it off, shake it off...."
when you're so wet, you turn into a giant budgie ball of floof!
Lucy and some post-bath canoodling going on in the background.
As sad as I am about Star and Skye, Jay and Star do make a cute little couple.
