Default Back for the first time since 2015 wow!

Hi everyone

I don't even know who's still here from that long ago, but you might remember my hens Nala and Chip. They're still alive and kicking and since then, we've added a Fischer's Lovebird Kuzco (who I've previously shared here as well) and a rescued parrotlet named Indy. I also finally graduated university and moved out of college housing into a bigger place that let me build the whole gang an indoor aviary, which they love spending their days in.

Anyway, I thought I'd include some updates and photos because I've missed the online bird community and am looking forward to being more involved again.

Nala was my first budgie and turns 8 next month. She was doing fantastic, never had a health issue in her whole life, until last month when she became egg bound. She had never laid prior to this and, although we got the egg out, she is dead lame on one foot and is going back to the vet tomorrow for a follow up. She's been a real trooper through the whole thing and is still active, flying, and enjoying her days, so I'm committed to doing everything possible to keep her that way.

Chip is my second, I got her about 4 months after Nala. She was also without issue until this spring, when she accidentally ripped her entire internal eyelid off while trying to scratch a pine feather. Nice. It was a scary blood bath for a minute haha, but she healed perfectly and didn't even need antibiotics or stitches.

Kuzco is my lovebird, he's a needy, fancy boy. He's 5 this year and recently went through some major separation anxiety that caused plucking because I generously offered him his own sleep cage. Apparently the fact that he also comes to work with me is irrelevant, he also needs to sleep in my room ALWAYS OR HE'LL DIE. But he's a good boy.

Indy (short for Inigo Montoya) the parrotlet was an unexpected arrival. He and his ex-wife Sasha were brought into my friend's clinic to be euthanized (I'll do a thread about their story because oh boy) because their owners didn't want them anymore. Sasha was very tame, very partial to humans, and beat on Indy nonstop so they had them separated and poor Indy had spent ten years in very undesirable conditions. He has some long-term joint laxity from being in that situation and is incredibly fearful of literally everything because it's all so new. But he's made strides since I got him in October and is learning how to fly, climb, chew, and even took his first bath last week.


Looking forward to catching up with everyone. If you want to see the whole gang in action, we do have a Youtube channel called SpicyUterus that is entirely birds and my saltwater fish tank!

Hi Ariel, and back to Talk Budgies

Your flock looks great.

We've had many changes on the forum with regard to our Site Guidelines and how things are handled in the last four years so please review the new
Site Guidelines.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

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:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

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.
