Last I heard, my little stinker wasn't interested in weaning! I don't know if he's made any progress yet or not.
Lindsey will let me know when he decides that playing all day and letting her hand-feed him means he isn't a "big" boy!
FaeryBee - You are so funny! I get such a kick out of how you put things! (Tried to give you karma again - but was redirected - one more time...)
I just learned that my Baby Budgie Boy has a birth defect of some sort either physical or mental, and I'm not going to be able to have him after all. I never got to meet him but already loved him very much.
As you all know, I had been following his progress from the time he was a sparkle in his Daddy Tiki's eye.
Lindsey has informed me that unfortunately -- not only is Baby Budgie Boy not weaning, he actually is regressing, won't perch and has little interest in his surroundings.
Lindsey is a true professional and only releases budgies that are 100% healthy.
I feel very badly for Lindsey as well.
I already had Baby Budgie Boy's little travel cage ready for the trip home, his interim cage prepared with new perches and toys and now I'm just heartbroken.
I'm going to ask that the administrators close this thread now as it is just too painful to continue.
