Today, October 13th the flock of 14 is celebrating Goldilocks 1st Homecoming anniversary! :b-day:
To mark the happy occasion, I decided to take some pics of the little miss and since she is such a great model, it turned into a photoshoot.

Little miss Goldilocks showing her natural beauty, as you can see she has kept her some of her baby barring on the forehead.

She knows how to work the camera

My girl is as sweet as she looks

Her feather condition has improved so much during this first year, she is just perfect

I wonder what's on her mind

Of course her mate Luigi had to make an appearance

They are the sweetest couple

I caught Luigi in the middle of a pedicure, just like Mallorn, he pays attention to his feet! ;)

Since I had the budgie sisters out, I also got a few pics of them today. :)

Dinda loves to puff up the moment she steps on my finger and gets comfy

A close up of my Peppy to show the beautiful throat spots, this is the first time in her life that she has that much, two sets on just one side! :eek:

I just love to look at pictures of your flock, Ana! Glad to know that everyone is fairing well, and Happy 1 year homecoming to Goldilocks! She is just stunning! I hope that she get extra treats today! Homecoming anniversaries are so much fun. Your birdies are just gorgeous, as always! Your two opaline half sisters remind me of my Buddy and Perry. It's almost a compulsion with those two. As soon as one puffs up, the other has to do it too. Same with Pepper and Peatri! As always, I wish you, your daughter and the flock my best.

Happy first Homecoming,sweet little Goldilocks!:party:
Thanks Gaby! :) I couldn't have asked for a sweeter bird, she is quite a chatty girl and has a peculiar way of singing. I'm able to tell her apart from the flock even when I'm not in the bird room. And Luigi sometimes mimics her screeches, it's like he is making fun of the way she talks the budgie language! :giggle:

Happy first homecoming anniversary :party:
Thanks, chirper! :)

Ooooh your birdies are so sweet, Ana! :hug:
Happy first homecoming little Goldilocks! :D May you have many more!!
All your girls and Luigi are just stunning!!
Thanks, Despina!
Nick's cousin Leonel was busy visiting visiting Tito Junior's cage and was having so much fun that he didn't want to join the girls for picture time. :)

Thanks, Kristen! :) The whole flock had a great time was treated with Goldilocks favourite veggie, broccoli.
Oh, and it's just me and the birds, I have no children.

Aww, congrats and happy 1st year, little Goldie! She's such a golden little angel like the rest of Ana's cutie flock:party3::party2::jumping::whoo:
Thanks, Nick! :) She sure is an angel and is so very patient with Luigi's hyper energy.

These are lovely piccies of lovely birdies! :proud::woot:

(Not wanting to detract from your thread, so apologies if this is the wrong place, but from your photo, I just wondered how you managed to get two birdies finger trained together...?.. With my two, if they do it at all, they won't do it at the same time as there's jealousy etc when treats are involved!)

Oh my! I can't believe it's already been a year since Miss Goldilocks joined your flock. :wow:
I remember the day you first posted pictures of her and it doesn't seem that long ago. :eek:
Time certainly flies by on Talk Budgies.

Goldilocks definitely knows how to work the camera and has both the beauty and moves to do it par excellence!

Luigi and Goldi certainly are sweet together :lovers: and Dinda and Peppy are looking as cute as ever!!

Happy Homecoming Day, Goldilocks!​

Goldilocks is looking quite fine, if I do say so myself! Happy Homecoming Day, little miss! :clap: :whoo: :party2: :love:

Mallorn sends her love and would like to add that she approves of Luigi's clear attention to his feet, which (to quote her) "displays the sophistication and deep dedication to self-care that I love to see among fellows."
:giggle:

Dinda and Peppy look lovely together :) Such sweet little girls!

Ana, good thing I didn't miss this thread! I LOVE :love: Goldilocks!!

I am partial to the yellow and blue recessive pieds. She'd look great with Twigs, with their different shades of blue. Her mate Luigi is quite gorgeous as well... So are all your birds actually :).

Does Peppy have a little blue on her lower abdomen too, or is it green? I love the double throat spots on one side!

What shade of blue is Goldilocks? Looks like mauve cobalt??

Your birds are so lovely, Aluz. And in great condition.. healthy and happy. Goldilocks looks angelic, for sure.
You've mentioned your Peppy looks like my Lemony and PJ and Luigi look similar.. yours are prettier, but they really are quite alike.
Thanks for the great photos. (I showed Lemony how to have a photo taken without the crabby face, but she didn't seem to care.. LOL)

Happy Home coming Goldilocks.. You are al so beautiful.. Goldilocks you and your friends will be able to have a treat of Millet... Did your Mum buy you a special toy to play with....
Thanks, Lyn! Besides her favourite veggie treat, Goldilocks got a new bell toy to play with. :)

Thanks, Susan! :) I don't have the habit of using food treats to tame my budgies, I make my first connection with them through my voice and the natural, positive vibes I surround myself with while interacting with them and during training. A lot can be accomplished with the right atmosphere and the intonation of our voices. The fact that I have owned pet budgies for most of my life has also made the whole training process second nature to me.

I have had a maximum of 4 birds perched on one of my hands and had little trouble with them. Of course this is also possible due to their temperaments and the fact that they mostly get along. As a flock, my budgies are used to being together during out of cage time and they behave well.

Here's just one example of a hand full of birdies. ;)


Happy homecoming Goldilock's, you are one sweet Hen....:loveeyes:
Thanks, Randy! :)

Thanks, Deborah! :) Time did go by fast and it always does when all is well with the budgie flock. She is still my latest arrival, but it doesn't mean it will stay that way as I have plans to let Goldilocks have a chance at motherhood sometime in the future.

:party:Happy Homecoming Goldilocks!!!:party:

Ana, the photos are just gorgeous! What a perfect little hen she is!:love: I also enjoyed the cameos made by her fellow flock members!
Thanks, Jen! :) Dinda and Peppy wanted a little of the spotlight too, and Luigi always wants to be by his mate's side whenever they have out of cage time.

Goldilocks is looking quite fine, if I do say so myself! Happy Homecoming Day, little miss! :clap: :whoo: :party2: :love:

Thanks, StarlingWings! Every time I see one of my budgie girls with their heads down and contemplating their feet, I always remember your Mallorn's pic.
It was funny to see Luigi who is a very hyper boy to take the time to tend to his feet. Goldilocks is for sure a good influence on him! :D

Thanks for all of your enthusiasm, Julie! :)
My Peppy is olive green in colour. I'm not exactly sure, but to me it looks Goldilocks is cobalt blue in colour and also seems to have violet on her. She is definitely darker to be sky blue and lighter to be mauve.

Your birds are so lovely, Aluz. And in great condition.. healthy and happy. Goldilocks looks angelic, for sure.
You've mentioned your Peppy looks like my Lemony and PJ and Luigi look similar.. yours are prettier, but they really are quite alike.
Thanks for the great photos. (I showed Lemony how to have a photo taken without the crabby face, but she didn't seem to care.. LOL)
Thanks Judy! :) Our little lookalikes are equally pretty, your PJ and my Luigi could even pass as twins, the same goes for my other budgie boy Tito Junior who has the same colours.

I can have about four on one hand at a time sometimes, but only when there's treats involved. Otherwise it's just two.....they attack me like little flying monsters when they see I have millet! lol :giggle:

Gorgeous baby! <3
Thanks, Katie and I do agree with you! ;)

Yes, 4 adult budgies in one hand is also my limit and I do have rather small hands. If it were chicks, I would probably be able to fit a couple more. :)
