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?)😃

Omg... He's SO cute. He's legitimately got one of the cutest faces I've ever seen. And Cheerio is such a cute name too! I really can't wait to see more of him~

Lol thanks!😆
Cheerio looks so much like my dearly departed Sparky it gave my heart a real jolt when I saw his picture.
He is adorable!! I'm looking to see lots more pictures of Cheerio in the future. 💛💛💛

Aww I’m sorry💛 now that you say that I do remember seeing a picture of Sparky in old post I looked at. All your birds are beautiful.
My childhood dog was Sparky, I remember watching him be born at a family friends house when I was 5 and I had him until I was 21☺

You need to teach your english Figaro to greet the new one with, "Pip pip, Cheerio" in a british accent, no less. 😁

We literally have been working on it!!🤣 my daughter can do a great British accent too, so we can only hope. What would be helpful is if Disco said that in one of his videos, because Figaro will copy anything Disco says but it takes much longer for him to say what I want him to say😒🙃

I just had to update and let you know that after 31 days of repeating pip pip Cheerio to Figaro, sometimes while showing him pictures of Cheerio… he said it!!!! So for two days now he has added it to his ‘playlist’😂 of favorite phrases. Unfortunately it’s not in a British accent lol🤷‍♀️

I believe it would be extremely difficult for any budgie to mimic an accent. 😄
On behalf of all readers here, we demand a video! 😁

Sure, but it was worth a try🤣

Lol ugh, I’ll try to figure out posting it on YouTube😆 I have it on video a couple times- just not sure it’s clear enough. I can only video him while he’s in his cage because if he’s out and sees my phone then he’s sitting on it!😏
Ok, I hope I did this correctly😆 here’s a short of Figaro saying pip pip Cheerio, he says hiii, followed by pip pip Cheerio. This is the first time I got it on video so hopefully it’s clear enough to understand!

What a excellent morning treat to see and hear Figaro talking.

He does SUCH a great job.

I heard "Pip Pip Cheerio!!" among all his other wonderful phrases.

I love his little pin feathers! It's interesting that no matter the sound of the person teaching a budgie to talk, they all seem to have the same budgie ..... is 'accent' the word? :)

Lol yes it does seem like they all sound very similar!
Those pin feathers🙄 every time I think he’s done with those things he seems to lose more feathers and then there’s more pin feathers to make him itchy and grumpy. He just started saying “scritches, scritches, scritches” though because we always ask him if he wants scritches, and he actually lets us sometimes now lol😁
