Ptsdbudgie is on a distinguished road
Default First time budgie dad

Hello all, I'm a first time budgie owner in Texas. I saw a reputable breeder at a local flea market that my mother bought two budgies from when I was a child, and I thought "I've been wanting to bring home another animal, why not!" (In case you can't tell from my name, animals are a good PTSD treatment for me)

So I got a cage, a few toys and a swing, cuttle bone, all the other goodies I remember from my childhood. I let my girlfriend pick out these two adorable little 4 month old cuties...

Anywho, I just wanted to stop in and introduce myself and our two new family additions. I also wanted to do some research on taming and ask a few questions so I have a complete knowledge necessary for the task of keeping them happy. Here's a pic. As they get more tame I'll post more.

Their names are Candy and Peregrine.

Thanks a ton! I'm looking forward to doing some reading. I'll put some better pictures up tomorrow. Peregrine is a little more willing to come out of the cage than his little mate so you will probably see more of him (we've only had them a couple days anyway.)

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

I was refreshing their water and food, and Peregrine came over to see what's up.
