Default Balki, long gone but never forgotten...

I just joined this forum as I am getting a new baby budgie in a few days, but before this new baby I wanted to talk a little bit about, Balki whom I literally grew up with. He was with us for about 11 years, he was a tiny green one. The silliest, sweetest, clumsiest bird ever!

When we got him he was a messy little baby, he couldn't pull his tail or wings together, his belly looked all messed up but he grew into a very handsome but very funny bird.

There are so many good stories...

When he was younger he wasn't very fond of flying, not that he couldn't, he just wouldn't. And as a curious little guy he would end up falling behind closets etc.. and wait there for hours until we find where he is and pick him up.

He was always flying free at home, he loved to be around us all the time, he was very jealous when my mom got affectionate with us, whenever he spotted my mom hugging or kissing us he would fly and join the hug party!

He would always respond to his name and waving your hand up and down was enough to make him fly to you.

He loved joining us for dinner, and most of the time the dinner parties ended with Balki falling into the food, pulling himself out half wet half greasy and leaving the scene with greasy footprints on the table.

One day we come home, he is nowhere to be found, not dead not alive, we call for him, search, make sounds etc.. no response. Finally we give up hoping he would come out of wherever he is hiding, then we spot him in the TV cabinet, which has a glass door that is securely closed. It tooks us a while to figure out how he made his way into there, apparently there is a tiny hole behind the cabinet for the cables and he somehow managed to squeeze his way in the cabinet but obviously he couldn't come out and waiting for us to find him.

He loved all sorts of games, run and catch etc, he was more like a dog or a monkey then a bird. His favorite activity was not letting us play with cards, every time he sees playcards, he would fly in, grab one card from the corner, drag it off the couch, table etc and watch it fall.

as I said so many stories, he was a great part of our family, he was loved very much and he was a very loving bird himself, I hope that he enjoyed living with us as much as we enjoyed living with him!

I can't believe it has been 12 years since he passed away....

Balki sounds like he had a huge personality and kept you entertained. You were blessed to have him but of course losing him would have been very painful. You obviously still love him and have fond memories all these years later.

How exciting you are getting a new budgie. Make sure to post some photos of him/her and thanks for sharing about Balki.

Here's to the tiny green Balki

What a fantastic budgie Balki is, I loved that he would wait for you to pick him up after exploring and I did laugh when you eventually found him in the tv cabinet that time. I am sure he really enjoyed living with you living as he did for 11 years, what a great love story all round
