Default Malvolio and Mercutio

I would like you to meet Malvolio (foreground) and Mercutio (in the back). We bought them today from a breeder in Stratford Upon Avon (home if Shakespeare), and could not resist Shakespearean names.

We will call them Mal and Merc for short.

They have been home for about two hours, and have eaten and settled on their perches. They chirruped and sang for a bit, now I have covered them up so they can acclimate in peace for tonight.

I am so excited and happy to have these two boys in my life!

Kyrion, congratulations on your two lovely boys! They are adorable, and I'm glad to hear that they're settling in well

How fitting to name them after Shakespearean characters when they were born in the same place he was

Thank you, everyone! They seem to be settling in okay, though they are quiet which is to be expected. About my only concern right now is I've not seen them drink anything, but they don't look dehydrated so I guess they're okay. I've put a small bowl in the bottom of their cage - well clear of their perches - as well as their bottles, just so they can get to it easily. I'll give them some spinach (which the breeder said they love) today as well, just in case they'll eat it and get a bit of fluid from that.

Therm, the breeder said Mal (front) was 18 weeks, and Merc (back) was 14 weeks. The size difference is noticeable! They had a fight over pecking order yesterday which was quite interesting to watch, and I think it was merc who won in the end, despite being smaller.

Once they've settled and I've made some steps towards taming them I'll take some new photos and put them in the photo thread =D
Thank you again <3

Don't be too concerned about water.

Budgies don't drink much and can be sneaks about it as well. You can move it close to favourite perch for them while they settle in. Depending on if the breeder used to put food, water etc at the bottom of their cage it might take them a while to be comfortable going down there to start with.

And size will have nothing to do with the pecking order, strangely enough. Once they get established, they should be fine.

Thanks, Therm! I did suspect they might be being sneaky about it

They've already made me laugh. Malvolio is vocal when he is inclined. He likes to give Mercutio lectures, while Mercutio just gets right up in his face and sort of stands on tiptoes and fluffs up all his feathers at him.

They were crooning to each other last night though, which was lovely to hear!
