Default Feeling awful!

Hello all. I'm nearly 8 months pregnant and it's safe to say that the mood swings are beginning to get to me!

This morning I was just leaving the budgies with their radio on when they started snapping at each other for no reason. I hate it when they fight, even though they are usually very good and it's just a bit of cross bickering from time to time, but this morning rocky pushed lemmy onto the floor and I lost it. I shouted out loud, "why can't you just behave, you pair of pests?"

They both went really quiet and just Looked at me. They were singing again when I left for work, but I've been feeling guilty all day!! Will they hate me now?

They won't hate you so try to stop beating yourself up.
By the time you return home from work they will have forgotten you yelled and you can make it up to them by providing lots of time and attention this evening.

Take care and be kind to yourself.

Don't feel bad! A couple of days ago, I snapped at our new chihuahua, Gizmo, who'd been abused by a three year old at his previous home. He cowered when I yelled at him, and went to slink away. I felt so bad that I had to give him a hug and tell him what a good boy he was, despite the fact that he'd been barking non-stop for hours!

The point is, I'm sure your kids won't take it too personally. Budgies tend to be extremely forgiving. I mean, Ziggy had been bullying Juey for months, yet Ju still wanted to play with him and be friends. Budgies can get into pretty bad fights, but they tend to make up quickly and just want to get along again. I'm sure your guys have already forgotten about the whole thing and would totally understand that you had just reacted without thinking.

I wouldn't worry about it too much, but I'm sure they wouldn't mind it if you read them a story once you got home from work . I'm sure they'd be more than happy to help you practice reading to your soon-to-be-born baby .

I am sure you just startled them when you yelled, they didn't understand that you were upset at them and likely were wondering what the heck was your problem...lol they will be fine!

Ah thanks everyone, I feel better now. I bloomin' love those birds, they are spoiled rotten, and I hated myself for getting cross with them for doing what budgies do and annoying each other sometimes! They can have a millet treat tonight to make up for it.

As everyone said don't feel bad... Budgies are very forgiving little birds... Remember they can pick up on when you are sick... They sense things.... I'm sure your budgies were just having one of those budgie moments..... Don't hate yourself or be mad with yourself.... They will forgive you. I love my budgie he is so funny and I get a lot of joy with him he is my best friend...
