Default Berry, Douwe, River and Faylens Thread

Hello everyone,

This is an introduction for the four new budgies and a re-introduction for me. TB was my first internet community and I remember it being such a fun place, I had a few budgies when I was younger and loved them a lot. Unfortunately I haven't had any with me for many many years.

For Christmas my partners mum got him four little young blues. I got to take care of them up to Christmas day and it was killing me not being able to tell him!! They aren't really mine, but I may have usurped the plan of just getting a few budgies for the aviary (that aren't necessarily tame). I spent a lot of time with them and they have become quite happy around us!


The first day. Left to right: Douwe, Berry, Faylen, River

Berry is the oldest, and Fay I suspect the youngest. They're all siblings I'm assuming. I haven't thought about budgie genetics in a very long time but I think they'd be cobalts, the two dilutey ones I suspect cinnamon, since they have violet tails and are a bit brown, but perhaps greywings. They look extremely violet in the sunlight too, its beautiful.

Berry.

Faylen.

Sleepy (inside to escape the heat): Faylen, River, blurry Berry

They're inevitably going to go out into the aviary but I'm hoping we can still spend time with them, and if they stay tame bring them inside sometimes. They'll be inside when we move in together anyway.

I'm surprised at how quickly they become comfortable with things. They don't mind us walking around them, or our hands, they love eating things we offer them, and even enjoy driving (fun adventure to spot the wild red rump parrots!). Berry in particular has warmed and hops onto fingers to get food, and sometimes enjoys head scratches. Douwe is the most active and was the first to leave the cage and explore things, River is quieter but will step up after Berry. Faylen is very reserved but not scared.

It's so good having budgies in my life again, they're so gorgeous and so much fun.

Hi Alex and welcome back to Talk Budgies

Douwe, Berry, Faylen, River are simply precious little budgies.

A lot has changed with regard to how the forum is run now and there have been advances in "Best Practices" in the care of budgies for their optimal health and well being.
As such, please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

back, Alex!

Your little quartet is absolutely adorable

It looks like (from the posted photos) that Douwe and Faylen are girls and that Berry and River are boys. Better photos of their ceres would confirm

I can't wait to see more of them around here, please be sure to ask any questions you may have after updating yourself on the forums!

Welcome back to budgies

Thank you very much FaeryBee, and thanks everyone else!

I hadn't put much emotional investment in their sexes yet because I'm not able to tell this young, so thanks Starling! I'll get some better pictures.
