Default two handsome, young, and handfed male English budgies are seeking a new home

It is with a heavy heart that I write this post to begin the search for a new home for our two male English Budgies, Pico and Paco. Some that were following the thread I created for pictures and videos of the little guys may have noticed I haven't been around in a while. And, when we made the 12-hour round trip drive to Ohio in early November to pick them up from CuteLittleBirdies Aviary (aka Lindsey), we didn't anticipate life throwing us the curveballs it has recently.

Due to unexpected job changes for both my husband and me, we just don't have the time to devote to these guys and we've come to the realization that it's not fair to them any longer. We used to spend tons of time with them out of the cage, walking around our apartment, training them, and just generally socializing with them, but our new jobs and schedules just don't afford us that time at home any longer, and again, it's just not fair to them.

Pico and Paco (from the same clutch, per our conversations with Lindsey ahead of time) are gorgeous little guys, now fully-flighted and just about finished their first molt. We don't know their exact age because we unfortunately haven't received the hatch certificates from Lindsey, but they were approximately 8-9 weeks old in early November putting them at about 9 months old now. Pico (who is slightly larger than Paco and a little more outgoing) is a Sky DF Violet SF Spangle, and Paco is a Cobalt DF Violet SF Spangle. Both are absolutely gorgeous little birds! Since they were handfed, they are tame, and they will do pretty much anything for a seed treat! Our avian vet is quite fond of these little guys (they've been there twice, once for a wellness exam right after we got them, and a second time a little over a month ago to have their nails trimmed), and is very happy with their normal diet which consists of pellets, two supplements, and fresh veggies. Seed is only given as a treat or as a means of coaxing them in/out of their cage, however.

Speaking of their cage, included with the birds is a Prevue F050 flight cage. It's very large, and Pico and Paco love all the room they have. Also included are:

- cage fixings consisting of a couple toys, several natural rope and natural wood perches, food cups, water bottles, etc.
- small travel carrier recommended by Lindsey and our vet
- small supply of food, supplements, treats, etc.
- cage cleaning supplies
- a small roll of anti-microbial paper cage liner
- a seed/feather guard that goes around the bottom of the cage
- a low-power heated perch for those cold winter days (did I mention these guys are spoiled)
- and a small play stand

Most important is that these guys go to a loving and caring home that has enough time to engage with them and love on them like they deserve. And if not, a home where these guys can be integrated into a larger flock and be the beautiful birds they are, maybe even passing along their superb genes. So please, share this thread and spread the word to anyone that's looking to adopt. We seek no money for this, only a loving and caring home.

For pictures, please see the picture thread I created HERE. Unfortunately, I don't have any more recent pics except a couple highly stylized pictures from our pet sitter that don't do the little guys justice. I'll try to get a couple new pics in the coming days.

We are located in southeastern Pennsylvania (United States), just north of Philadelphia. We don't have a car in which the cage (even disassembled) will fit, so the birds will have to be picked up. The cage isn't huge when disassembled, but you'll need either a large car, a SUV/truck, or a vehicle in which the rear seats fold down.

I'm very sorry to hear that...

I hope you will be able to find a great new home and family for your budgies.

I'm sorry you have to rehome your budgies. They're absolutely beautiful!
Hopefully you'll find someone that will care for and love them the way you do.

Uh oh....

I'm pretty sure I heard your two sweet baby boys say they want to come live with me

I'm home all day and spend oodles of time with my birdies.

The current budgie flock of seven will be more than happy to welcome your two boys.
My budgies are very sweet-tempered and share well. It would be great to have Pico and Paco join us.

I will be happy to talk with you and share pictures of my bird's current living arrangements.
I'm hoping to hear from you via Private Message soon.

Yeah.. I think I heard Skipooterky and Safraterimon say that they'd love to welcome Pico and Paco as part of their group!

I vote for Deb's home and the FaeryBee flock. That would be a perfect place for these two pampered boys to remain pampered!

I have super exciting news, everybudgie!

I will soon be the proud adoptive "Mom" of Pico and Paco.
I can't even begin to tell you how happy this makes me.

This will bring my budgie flock to a total of nine beautiful birds.

I've sent a message to NBCGLX and will be making arrangements to go pick up the boys when we can coordinate our schedules.

Yaaay!!

Congratulations, Deborah!

I'm so glad these two boys are going to be adopted into a wonderful home so they can keep on being spoiled

You know we're going to need lots of pictures, right?

Oh, and I wanted to let you know that it's alright if they join you--they may not have S names, but their P names fit in perfectly with the other birdies in the FaeryBee flock!

So that brings the total of the birdies up to 12! Skipooterky, Safraterimon, Poppeachro, and Picaco Do you know, that's very poetic. Let's see:
Skipooterky, Safraterimon
Poppeachro and Picaco
Charm and bravado for more than one
For more than one charm and bravado!

Poppeachro and Picaco,
Skipooterkafraterimon
They always bring such fun good cheer, oh!
Oh, they always bring good cheer, such fun.
