I LOVE this thread

Mink makes me laugh because she loves sitting in her "nest" which is my husbands hair ! She doesn't just sit there looking cute, and she doesn't just 'preen' hair either, she gets down to business and will actually pull hairs out one at a time! Then he screams "Owww!!" She of course keeps doing it... It's so funny.

Twigs mainly makes me giggle every day just by looking at him. He is so darn tiny and cute no matter what he does. I guess I'm easily amused? He thinks he looks big and tough no matter what he does, which makes it even funnier.

Then my parrots do TONS of funny and adorable things too

This is a great thread, what some budgies do is so funny.

This is what Echo does everyday. -
When we're having dinner and everyone is sat at the table next to Echo's cage, he does nothing but chirp, talk and squark while hoping round his cage, as if not knowing what do do with himself, then stops when I look at him.

What a great idea, sorry I am late to the party! Picking one thing is difficult: do I go for what makes me laugh, what makes me amazed, or perhaps what makes me adore his fluffy little butt feathers?

I think I have to pick our morning shower time.

Wiki has a perch in the bathroom, and he will often come join me when I take a shower. He strikes up a conversation with himself in the mirror while he waits for me to get the water going. He likes to join me in the shower for a drink, and will come land on the railing until I step in, waiting for his drink. When he's had enough, he usually takes off and continues his chat to the bathroom mirror, or spends some time preening on a towel. But on some special mornings (including the last two), when he's finished his drink he will lean his body while perched on my hand, to make me take him to the glass door of the shower cubicle where water is sitting, and start to fluff his feathers while rubbing his shoulder on the glass. That's his way of telling me that he wants a bath. So I oblige, and cup my hand for him.



It never ceases to amaze me: to have such a tiny little creature in your cupped hand, fluffing and flapping and wriggling around as you splash water on his back, before flying away with water-heavy wings. His trust in me warms my heart and always gets me off to a great start for the day.

Now it's my turn. I'm always late...

The funniest thing is when we wake up in the morning I let Indi out and he flies over to my mother and she is getting things ready for breakfast and Indi lands on her and says I'm in Charge and Mum says no your not I am.. Can I help...

Indi also greets me and says I love you... Indi likes being with us he talks and says lots of things..

I bought a solar hummingbird the other day and I set it up in the lounge room this morning put it on the little table we have....Indi was watching and I said to Indi look at the little birdie and Indi whistled at me I turned the little bird on and it goes round in a circle Indi couldn't wait to get out to greet the imitation bird..Indi was so funny when he saw it..

Another thing Indi likes doing is that he has his bell in his beak and he is talking at the same time dancing up and down his perch it is so funny he makes us laugh....

Also I put his bird bath in and he baths like a duck water goes everywhere he fluffs his feathers around while trying to get them wet....He also likes running on the floor playing with his toys he flies back and forward to me when I ring his little bell he comes.... He runs up and down my leg and has a thing for my toes naughty boy but I love my budgie so much....


I forgot to say Indi also says kissie kissie in two voices Indi says it in my voice and my dads voice and when he does it it runs up and down like the arpeggio of the scales.... A breeder told me that it is rare for a budgie to talk in two voices and he hasn't forgotton how to talk in two voices pretty cool...

This thread is amazing! And... Wow, I'm late

More often than not, Daesyl makes me laugh by the way she steps up onto my hand. It's not just a simple matter of walking over and putting her foot up, she takes this great big over-exaggerated step, then looks really proud of herself for managing it
She's just so enthusiastic about it, it's hard to take her seriously

Good idea Deborah, I love this thread and needed to smile (I'm having to leave Jakob with friends for over a week hno: )

Anyway, the best time of day is right when I let Princess Jakob out of the cage. Doesn't matter if it's morning or when I get home from work. She'll fly to the top of the bookcase and wait for me to come pick her up. She'll stay on my finger, look right at me and go "kiss kiss".

The challenge to choose only ONE thing is what makes this thread so much fun.

I appreciate everyone who has contributed so far.

Every time I read through this thread it makes me smile!

It has been especially lovely for me to read and imagine seeing your wonderful budgies doing the many antics in the comments.
It has not been the best of weeks for me, with the loss of my dear uncle, my friend's beloved dog and for the loss of seventeen precious lives - both person and dog, from a road accident.
So, Thank You Deb, for starting this and to the other contributors.

Just one thing ... hmm. I love how Buzz is always the LAST to realise it's bed-time. The others clue into the cues, curtains closed, one light out, two lights out and before it's done they've scrambled for the best spots on the two swings.

Then my anxious boy Buzz realises what's happening and tries to push in, on or around the others for prime real estate. The cage is then noisy with all the fluttering and to-ing and fro-ing and LOUD squawk squawk scolding by Rio and chattering and fighting and bickering and back and forward until Buzz ends up sitting smack in the middle of his swing of choice for the night
