This is our new budgie addition- Cheerio💛
He’s a sweet lil guy, and obviously very comfortable with people since he jumps on our hands whenever we are getting him food or water. When he sings it sounds like a canary which cracks us up since he looks like a canary. They did have a canary where he was raised so we wonder if he’s imitating it🤷♀️
He didn’t want to eat sprouts or veggies from the bowl so we put it on paper towels at the bottom of his cage and he seems to like that better, with some seed and pellet sprinkled on it.
I put some of the Harrison’s super fine pellets in one bowl just to kind of get him used to seeing them and he loves them- it’s what he prefers over the seed. That really surprised me because Figaro will eat them from my hand and eat a bit from his bowl but they are last on his list of things he likes to eat lol. So maybe when they meet after their quarantine they’ll teach each other some good things😂
I was worried that they would flock call to each other constantly and get upset but they have only done it a few times over the 5 days so far so that’s good. Cheerio is upstairs in my daughters room and Figaro is downstairs and we try to keep some music on so most of the time they can’t hear each other. We showed Figaro some pictures of Cheerio and he made his happy purring noise and said “baby birrrd, give me a kiss!”😆 so I hope that means he’ll like him in person(or in bird?)😃
