I am the proud human of four beautiful budgies - Sterling and Phantom, a married couple, and Simon and Buckaroo, not married yet, but who knows -- it's legal now. I brought Bucky home only 3 months ago - he was living in my office while quarantined but now shares a flight cage with Simon (who was very previously a very lonely third wheel to Simon and Phanty) and the two are kissing, regurgitating maniacs.
So of course I've decided to bring home another baby, this time a pet-type little handfed male, to live in my office long term**. I'll be driving to The Feathered Coop in MD (and take my college student daughter out to lunch on the way!) on November 7th and bringing him home. Pictures will ensue!
**or until he seems too lonely, at which point I'll have to...get another budgie.
Yes!! I've been there! I used to have 1, 2, 3, 4 and then they got 6 and 7! Now I have 3 and I am thinking of getting a new female!
I am good at resisting though... If my fiance let me, I would have more than 20!
