Default Welcoming Fizzy

Hello friends,
Yesterday morning I received a phone call from our local Humane Society that I was approved to adopt the budgie they had. I've had everything set up for a little while now. I picked him up in the afternoon. They called him Green Arrow at the HS, but his new name is Fizzy.

Fizzy's story is basically that his previous owner had him and a second budgie, but his buddy escaped and flew away (poor little guy). His owner decided they weren't prepared to care for the bird so they gave him to the Humane Society. Fizzy was there since May this year. Since he's been there, he apparently developed an obsession with his mirror.

Since being in his nice, big cage he's been spending more time on various perches and the only time I've seen him by that dang mirror (yeah, they sent it along with him) is when he was sleeping last night. He is currently at his food dish eating as I'm writing this post.

I'm not bugging him too much aside from covering/uncovering for sleep/wakeup, food/water, and just spending some time sitting nearby and reading aloud. He sat on the perch nearest me and chirped while I was reading. I think he likes listening to the wild birds in the morning, too.

It's going to be great having a budgie again

Hi there and to (the posting side of the) forums!

Fizzy is a very handsome boy, I'm so glad you were able to take him in and give him a loving forever home!

I would just remove the mirror at this time. He doesn't need it and it's actually detrimental to his mental health to have it in there if he's obsessed with it; it can cause him to be aggressive, territorial, and depressed.

It sounds like he's got plenty of goodies in his new cage to keep him busy!

You've come to a great place to learn even more about budgies Be sure to look through the forum's many Budgie Articles and "stickies", which will ensure you're up to date on all the best practices for budgie care.

If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask! We look forward to seeing more of your Fizzy around the forums!

Cheers

Thank you for the lovely comments and additional information!

Nothing crazy new. We have a pellet food coming in the mail tomorrow for switching later on, as well as a new cage cover for nighttime. I put a bit of millet in his salad dish this morning to see if it encourages him to try some new things (a bit of spinach and blueberry today). If not, he still gets millet and his seed dish is right there. No harm, no foul.

I did remove the mirror from his cage yesterday morning. He hasn't thrown any sort of fit over it. He's still eating, drinking, pooping, chirping, and sleeping. We have made a little progress in another area - when I changed out his food and water this morning, he stayed where he was instead of fluttering off to the far end of the cage. Happy bird momma.
