Default New Budgie: Swablu!

My boyfriend and I recently purchased our first budgie from Petco. (One week ago) We intended on going through a breeder, but could not find one in our area.

His name is Swablu, after the pokemon. He's currently eating a mixture of seeds and pellets and is gradually being weaned away from the seeds successfully! My boyfriend and I have been spending a bunch of time with him daily and playing music for him. He settled in very quickly and after only a day or so was singing and playing with all his toys. Whenever we come into the room he chirps happily and flies to the cage door. He's more than happy to jump into your hand or up on your finger. When we're in the room, we leave his cage door open now and he will fly out and land on us and scramble over our shoulders and limbs.

We're extremely impressed with how quickly he has settled in, especially since he came out of a glass cage at Petco.

Anyway, just wanted to introduce our new baby, we will post pictures later!

I'm glad to hear Swablu is settling in so well, he seems to be quite the sweet and smart little fellow. We will be waiting for the pics!

Looking forward to some pictures of your new birdie
If it were me though, I would not feed only pellets. I think a variety is the best. I give my birds a choice of pellets, a good seed mix, and fresh or cooked veggies.

Welcome to TB! Swablu sounds like a cheerful little fellow, and I can't wait to "meet" him!

It sounds like you've done a lot of research, great job so far!
It's lovely to have you here

I agree with StarlingWings -- she and I may end up in a contest to budgie-nap your little sweetheart from the sounds of his delightful personality!
