Default Just Some Typical Budgie Chatter :)

I have a question to ask before I just randomly chatter like the common budgie My 3 babies are now 5 weeks old, and I was thinking about pulling dad out of the cage when they turn 6 weeks old, but my issue is that I don't want to put him back in with Tiki. Yes they are a great pair, and obviously get along really well but I don't need her laying more eggs considering the last fiasco I went through. Right now I am working with the 3 babies to be incredibly hand tame and Frankie Blue & Sprite are well on their way to being hand tame they are just learning how to fly. Will talk more about that in a sec. The one I have really got to work with is Skye. He is not quite sure about hands yet even though I have been handling him almost since day one.

So my question here is: I recently clipped Clouds wings so I could possibly work with him on being hand tame, should I keep him in with the 3 babies so he can get used to my hands being in the cage?

So anyway, more chatter Sprite and Frankie are learning how to fly but I have their wings clipped that way I don't have to chase them all over the apartment and risk any dangers. Sprite is really funny when she tries to fly due to the fact that she flies like a helicopter. She gets a lot of lift but cant quite get the forward motion yet. Frankie has a unique way of flying. When he comes down to visit, I know it's him without looking at him because he does this crash landing thing right into my leg Skye has just started to fly after his bout of shyness but I still have a lot of work with Skye to do with hand taming. Sprite and Frankie are almost their despite their attempts of flying around. They are doing so very well as far as everything goes. I am astonished at how soft they are, so I must be doing something right as far as feeding and health goes. I am still in disbelief that I helped these babies grow and in making sure that they are healthy. So very rewarding.

Tiki is doing surprisingly well on her own and I have discovered that she makes this new chirp one that is difficult to explain. Its loud and not your typical budgie sound She has started to play which is something that she never used to do. I am amazed at her character change.

Ricki is doing so much better. That lump that I was worried about in a previous post has gotten A LOT better. Because I couldn't reach a vet at that point in time, I took her into the bathroom and carefully pushed on the swelling and it turns out that she was constipated because I had pushed out a lot of poop and it was still healthy looking which was good. After I carefully pushed out as much as I could without stressing her out, I put her back in her cage, put in 2 dishes of water with some vitamin c, and other vitamin and mineral supplement. 3 days after the whole ordeal I went and checked in on her and there was a HUGE, and I am talking MASSIVE AMOUNTS of poop on the bottom of her cage and the lump in her abdomen had reduced in size and she is doing very well. Back to her normal crazy noisy self.

Apollo, my precious little bird. I have felt so bad after the babies had been getting older he had not been getting a lot of attention which made him a little grumpy so for the last day or so I have been spending a lot of time with him and this morning as well. So even though this is a general budgie talk section I have two of the cutest pictures of him taken this morning. I am sure everyone will appreciate them

It's so amazing how something so small could have a big impact on our lives and bring us so much joy with their little selves and giant personalities and so much love to give. If I could have more of them I totally would but I think 7 is as much as I can handle for now and considering the limited amount of space I have

Without further ado, here are the two photos I have of my boy Apollo

Apollo being super cute

Apollo being goofy and silly. I managed to get this great picture before he moved

He's a very handsome boy! I love the inquisitiveness of Budgies. That second picture made me smile so big!
