I'm the first bird my mom has ever had. Thanks to everyone here we believe I am a girl and around 4 months old. My eyes are still black and MAYBE I have the start of an iris ring. I haven't molted yet. But maybe I am starting because there are some little feathers laying around?
My mom got me new food today. She mixed the mash with carrots, kale, cucumbers, and corn with a few seeds and I am going crazy for it!
Im so tiny I like sitting in my bird food. Or maybe my feet provide extra seasoning lol
Tomorrow will be one week in my new home. I like all my perches, I LOOOOOVE my mineral block. I'm only playing with one toy so far. I like to chirp, I like music, I LOVE the sounds of other parakeets on You Tube. I like to to be talked to. I do NOT like cell phones in my face
There was a budgie that looked a lot like Luna in the cage with Puck when I bought him. The yellow on it's head was a little bit brighter, but not much. I almost brought that one home, too, but I was afraid I wouldn't do so well taking care of two for my first time and decided to just give Puck all of my attention.
Really pretty little budgie, though. <3
Lord, what fools these mortals be! - Puck
Well, she's going through her first molt. She's turned into a different bird. Won't let me near her at all We are just keeping her comfy until she is feeling better. Hopefully my sweet, sociable bird will show up again. Her face looks so different already!
If you look at the first images, she only had a teeny bit of yellow on top of her head. Look at her face now!
There's a little yellow on her tail too, although that is one ratty looking tail right now. I assume that'll grow in.
