I posted before about one of my budgies possibility of being a girl, the reason for buying.. I have left it long enough now and Pearl has turned out to be a boy. Now the boys have a new friend, Princess and this time she is a girl, but the boys are being silly and hardly talk to her, mind you she is bigger than them. So now I still have Joey as my friend, Pearl and Newguy making wedding arrangements, tutherone causing trouble and perching at the far side of the room and princess perched there chirping very loudly
Congratulations on getting Princess, sorry but I have to say that your post made me smile with you using the word "tutherone" some people on here must be thinking what the heck is tutherone, (I was born near Leeds) so to educate the "foreigners" it means "the other one" in Yorkshire, thanks for putting a smile on my face
Pete, thanks for explaining that!
I was sitting here thinking "what on earth kind of name is "tutherone" and your post made me laugh!
Yorkydevil -- Pictures of all of of your birdies, please!
I am laughing now, I obviously just thought people would know the Yorkshire dialect, Pete is correct. Newguy came about after my popeye died and he was called newguy for ages, so newguy stuck. Along came Joey and another yellow birdie , so I had Joey, Newguy and " the other one" T'utherone. These lot crease me up with laughter, the cage doors only get shut once in a while. They come out when they want but will not return until I have uncovered the cage, this is often after they've been shouting at me for an hour. Some of them chat and head bob to the wall, curtain track, pieces of wood. Newguy and Pearl (boy) still seem to be a "pair" with tutherone being a nuisance and annoying them. joey as always spends a lot of time just doing as he pleases, but a lot of jealousy, Joey is with me a lot, so tutherone and Pearl have to come over, tutherone biting my neck ! Often Joey chases him off. I love how if two seem to be having "words" one of the others has to lean over and watch or jump in and break it up. They are just enjoying some celery and the leaves from a berry infusion drink, they prefer Apple and Cinnamon.
I cannot remember how to upload photos so trying one first, joey and Princess
Princees and Pearl enjoying a strawberry with t'utherone watching

It is taking a while but at least now Princess is going to the front of the cage, but not going in. This gives me the chance to pick her up. One or two of the boys have started "talking" to her. Princess is in the middle of Joey and the boys as behavior goes, If I approach them Joey just stays there, Princess moves a little/sometimes flies off and the other three just take off up onto the curtain rail. I put up a perch hanging from the curtain rail and put Joey onto it, a bit later i was looking for Joey, calling him, checking where i put my feet, started to worry then heard a chirp from above me... silly me
