Default New budgies in the family!

Hello everyone! It's been awhile since I've been on here, just wanted to post an update. My original 5 adopted budgies are doing well, and I think I've finally found a combination that suits everyone. Bobby and Betty (veryyyyy bonded pair) are now in a cage together on their own. Monk, Goose and Racket are doing well together, get along great, and no one seems to be the victim of any more bullying.

About a month ago, I ended up adopting a 10 year old Lutino Ringneck Parakeet, who was not in a very good place and seemed to have been abused.

Even more recently, (about a week agoafter a trip to Petco for some supplies, I saw an adorable little white budgie in the corner with an injured cere, torn tail feathers, and very dirty. After talking with one of the employees, they decided to just give her to me. When they took her out, another baby that was standing near her started pacing and chirping loudly. They seemed to be close and were not very happy about being separated, so I brought her home too. Meet Luna and Duckie. I will try to get better pictures of them, right now this is all I have. You can sort of see the injury where Luna's nostril appears to have been torn vertically. The vet says that it appears to be an older injury and is healing nicely. It will most likely never close, but other than that, she is healthy and doing well.

What an amazing person you are for taking in these birds that desperately need loving homes. Your new additions are gorgeous and I look forward to seeing more of them, as well as pics of the rest of your flock.

That's great that you were able to take these two out of a bad situation. Looks like you have made good progress with them if you have them already eating millet on your finger. Would love to see more pictures of them and the Ringneck too.

I was really going to take a step back and give them a few weeks to get settled, but after handling Luna, and getting her back and forth to the vet, she just kind of gave in and started coming to my hand. If I open the door she will run over and climb out and now will step up over and over. She is much more social and trusting than I expected. Duckie started following her lead after the 2nd or 3rd day after watching her climb around on my hand, I guess she decided it was okay to do it too. She now will come out on her own and step up as well. I'm currently working on getting them to go back in. If they're on my hand they will hop back in, but otherwise they just want to run around and check things out. Stubborn little curious babies.

Here are a couple photos of Sonny, the IRN. The first one is from the day I brought him home. I took him out of that horrid cage, and he never went back in it. It it was smashed in, bent all over, and also galvanized, so it went straight to the garbage along with the perches and rusted toys.

Here are a couple more photos of Luna and Duckie. You can see her cere better in these. It's starting to look better every day. Can anyone tell me what color Duckie is? She is quite pale. Will she be a brighter darker yellow when she's older, or always be a pale yellow? It's such a pretty color.

No, she'll always be pale yellow

She's what's called a creamino budgie, which is an albino budgie with yellow face II

Both girls are gorgeous!

These birds are all lucky you found them and were willing to take the risk of bringing them home. They're so gorgeous and I hope to see more of your flock!!

Thank you for rescuing these birds and giving them a safe and loving home.
Luna, Duckie and Sonny are all very fortunate to have joined your flock.
