Default Third bird.

I have two budgies in a cage in my living room - Billy and Benny. This afternoon I was shopping at our local supermarket and on the way out I glanced at the customer notice board, as I always do, and one notice caught my eye immediately - 'budgie and hanging cage free to good home, owner deceased'. I thought about it for about five seconds before getting pen & paper out to make a note of the telephone number - because what's one more budgie ?

On phoning the given number about half an hour ago, the gentleman who answered said he's been left with the bird after its owner died, and he didn't want the bird. He just wanted rid to a good home. I know nothing whatsoever about this budgie other than it needs a good home, which I believe I can give it.

I have no idea of the budgie's colour, its gender, its age, or indeed anything else about it. Isn't it exciting to have the prospect of a new budgie joining your household?

Despite the very sad circumstances leading to the rehome, I'm glad you will be adopting this budgie and give him/her the life he/she deserves.
I hope everything goes well, and feel free to post some pics of your latest arrival when you have the time.

It is absolutely a time of excitement when bringing a new budgie home! Discovering their personality, watching their play habits, even hearing their unique little sounds..............

In addition to adding extra joy to your household, you will be doing a good deed in giving this poor orphaned budgie a new home.

Keep us posted!

How wonderful that you are going to take in the needy little budgie and give it a safe and loving forever home!

Please post an update in this thread telling us all about it and hopefully showing us a picture of the little one as well.

When will you be picking the budgie up and bringing him/her home?

Default Bob the bdgie

Well, my third bird has arrived !It's definitely a male judging by the faint blue markings on his cere, and I'm almost certain the colour is what's called 'blue spangle'. I was told that Bob's previous owner died a week ago; he was given the bird but doesn't want it because he travels away a lot. All I know is that Bob is two years old as that's how long his deceased owner had him.

The cage he came with is way too small and it's filthy dirty too, but fortunately the age that came with my last budgie (also acquired as 'free to good home') is more than ample big enough for one budgie - in fact I would almost say it's a two-bird size cage - and as it happens I've got this other cage all set up in the eventuality of getting a third bird. All I need to do is put some sand on the bottom of the cage and fill up the seed & water containers

At the moment, Bob is in his existing small cage in quarantine in the spare bedroom. Later on today I'll get my no 2 cage set up and transfer Bob to his new abode . I have other things to do around the flat for now, and whilst I'm tackling the big pile of ironing I can talk to Bob and start getting to know him.

How lovely, and good of you. I'm wondering if maybe it was some kind of fate...you already had two budgies whose names begin with 'B', and this guy's name does too?! It must have been destiny. Congrats, and look forward to seeing a photo of him when it's OK to do so, as obviously you don't want to frighten him in any way whilst he's settling in. :-)

Default Third bird

Went into my spare bedroom, where Bob's cage is, just now to check on him and was quite shocked to see Bob out of the cage and perched on top ! I can only assume he got out where the lids on the seed and water containers aren't a close fit. These have now been very firmly sellotaped down so no chance of further escape - fortunately the bedroom window was closed so he couldn't have got outside!

The good thing about this is that I've discovered Bob is very definitely finger-tame - he let me approach him without flying off into a feathery panic as Billy and Benny (my other two budgies) would do. He was quite comfortable with stepping onto my finger and letting me carry him around the room for a while, and he didn't object too much when I had to put him back in his cage.

I don't know whether his late owner trained him to talk, and it doesn't matter to me whether he does or not but I will certainly keep up the finger-taming.

He's had a shower from spray container of water; to judge from his surprised behaviour I'm wondering whether this is something he'd not ben used to in the past. He will certainly be getting a morning shower every day from now on.

Default Quarantine.

Bob is in quarantine in my spare bedroom for a week first, before I bring his cage into the living room where Billy and Benny's cage is. I'll be keeping Bob in his cage as Billy and Benny's cage would have room to hold three birds but only room for two birds to fly. Bob, being finger-tame, can be allowed time out of his individual cage - I daren't do this with the other two as it would be near impossible to catch them again.

As I now have three birds, I think I'll have to start looking around for a suitable carrying-cage for when any of the budgies might need to go to the vet.
