Therm's Flock Adventures! (On-going)
For those who know me, I have not fallen off the face of the planet. I have returned and though it was only polite to update you all on the flock.
All my birds are still healthy and happy, thankfully.
Currently I have one breeding pair Cassie & Stan, both first time parents who so far have one egg (number two is due today).
Since she laid, Stan has been in the nest box for long periods of time with Cassie, which is kinda cute, I have to say!
Star & Skye are in their own cage, not for breeding just to spread the flock out a bit. Thankfully, Star & Sadie got over their hostile behaviour together.
Jay & Eve are still a united couple. Again they're in their own cage but not for breeding.
Tommy & Henry are still best friends! Yay!
Sadie and Blue have become good friends too.
Here's the whole flock (yep, there's a few newbies).
Great to see you back I've missed seeing all your beautiful birds, everyone is looking good. Can't wait to see Cassie and Stan's babies.
Thanks for the update, Emma!
It's great to see pictures and the flock pictures shown in your signature are awesome! Welcome to the new members of your flock as well.
Oh how gorgeous everyone is Emma! I used to have them all memorized, but quite a few new flock members to become acquainted with! :D:wave:
Yes, Cassie and Stan could have some real stunners! Can't believe they paired up. I thought it was Stan & Henry for life!
These are Sherbert & Stella:
And these two are Sophie & Kiwi:
Your flock is beautiful. I especially love Kiwi. I hope you'll share more pics.

Good to see you and the flock again! Can’t wait to see Stan and Cassie’s chicks!
A couple of new pictures.
Little Kiwi had a claw trim.
I noticed an 18 on her leg band, while I was doing the trim....
And she has a bit of a sore looking foot.
Karen is working on trying to find a way to give her a safe soft perch option to not create any pressure sores that any type of perch will give her at the minute.
And finally here's my beautiful little fallows, Max and Frankie.
Great to see you back here!
Congratulations on the new additions....and soon to be more :fingerx:
Good catch with Kiwi, Iím sure Karen will come up with a great solution.
I know Julie always tells me how lucky we are for mutations over here but it's been a want to get a yellow bird for some time.
Sherbert was a partial win but then I saw a pair of beautiful Lutinos in my local pet shop. I got one of them, and then the following day, I purchased the other after some thinking time.
We called them Mango (the one I purchased Friday) and Lemon.
Without going into a drawn out story, Sunday night, little Mango died. I've been on a few UK only Facebook budgie groups and it seems that a lot of breeders are having a lot of problems with babies this year and young birds dying. We've had a very long hot summer this year which is not the usual for us. Whether this is compromising some of the breeders young I have no idea but the only thing I can say is that I was glad I purchased Mango and not a kid as it would have been heartbreaking for them to see their little bird die after a few short days.
About a week before the Mango incident, we also lost Star. No signs of illness just dead in the cage one morning. :(
Despite that, Lemon is doing really well. He's a sweet little fella and I can'r wait to introduce him to the others.
Now an update on the rest of the flock.
Jay & Eve are still a couple. They are all sharing the flight cage right now and are still very content together.
Skye was bonded to Star so was a little sad after she died but he has started to flirt with Blue, Star's daughter with a very similar mutation as her Mum.
My new girls are getting on very well. Sophie is very bossy and vocal. She flock calls a lot. And moans when one of the other girls sits too close to her.
Stella is much more chilled out and Kiwi is doing great adapting to a proper cage where she can sit on perches.
Tommy & Henry are still besties.
Sherbert has found a surrogate Mum in Sadie who is still mothering him. it's pretty adorable.
Cassie and Stan had two chicks with one more to come.They're amazing parents!
Here's all of my birds, except for Jay because I forgot to add him. So sorry Jay!
