Hi, Sparky! Welcome downstairs


Hey, glad you decided to come out of your cage to visit


Let me make this clear, I'm the one in charge downstairs


Things sure look different down here


What's the matter, Scooter?


I'm just wondering how this change is going to affect me


Everybirdie sharing a snack


Scooter swinging on his patio


Sparky checking out Skipper and Scooter's cage


Skipper just hanging out


Everybirdie sharing space at Skipooter's house




Thanks for stopping by!
:wave:

Aww, such a super adorable trio and the new moniker SKIPOOTERKY has a rather...delightful ring to it.:D Such a visual feast to see all 3 together and each of their brilliant colors makes me just wanna lick the screen:p

Thanks, Nick --
The boys are doing well together.
I guess Sparky will be joining in on Skipper and Scooter's adventures too.

Awww Sparky looks like he is settling in with Skipper and Scooter sharing a wonderful home with his friends.
Thanks, Lyn
I still have Sparky's cage downstairs near Skipper and Scooter's in case Sparky needs some "alone" time.
Sparky has been alternating sleeping in his own cage at night and sleeping in with Skip & Scoot.
I plan to give them some time before deciding whether one cage is best or whether to continue having both available to them.

Skipper has actually been spending more time with Sparky than with Scooter since Sparky came downstairs.
I'm starting to feel a little bad for Scooter... :(
Having three budgies just isn't the best scenario as one always seems to get left out.

I'm glad to see that Sparky is getting a budgie visit with his friends. I think it's the best thing to see budgies interacting with others. Thanks for the adorable pictures. :)
Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures :)
Skipper, Scooter and Sparky are spending their days together now.
It remains to be seen if we will maintain two cages or they ultimately will all reside in one. ;)

Your birds are gorgeous. The lutinos are my favorite so I do have a soft spot for Sparky. Is sparky an English budgie? In some pictures he looks like a regular budgie and in others he looks like an English budgie.
Thank you. Sparky is a 50/50 Dark Eyed Clear.
Being half English and half American explains why he looks one way in some pictures and the other way in the remainder. :giggle:

Hey deb. Have you thought down the track about getting either Scooter or Sparky a new friend to play with.... Maybe Sparky will be your soul mate he may bond with you...
I'd rather not get another budgie unless it turns out one of my current three is being too left out by the others.

At this point, I have three lovebirds and three budgies.

As you know, Peachy is totally bonded to me and takes a great deal of time and attention. Also, at 12 years old, Kylie is alone now and needs more time, care and attention since he doesn't have Autumn.

I'm taking it a day at a time and hoping the three will work out an arrangement where they all interact and none of them is left out. :D

So much cute, they are all friends love that :grouphug:
Thank you, Maurizio. :)

Lovely pictures! I'm very glad Sparky has joined Skipper and Scooter and I hope this new arrangement works well for your boys. :)
Thanks, Ana - I think they are doing well so far. :fingerx:

You are doing a great job with family dynamics, Deb, I think it is really possible
to make three work. With no hens to stir the pot I think the boys are getting past the strong hormones just fine. Such a lovely family. Jo Ann:hug::hug:
Thank you, Jo Ann.
Sunny, Shelby and Sparky always got along just fine when they were together.
The only problem was on a daily basis, one of the three (and it varied as to which one) ended up being left out.

I'm hoping that won't be the case with Skipper, Scooter and Sparky. ;)

Great pictures! It's good to see that Sparky is being accepted and feels comfortable.
Thanks! :p

Somehow the "Skipooterky" just isn't doing it for me like "Skipooter" did. :(

It may have to end up being "Sparky and Skipooter" unless there is some wonderfully creative name suggested that I really love...

Deb, they are all so beautiful.

I have to say, I just now noticed that Scooter has some violet on his belly, not just blue! :eek:

I'm so glad it seems like they're getting on well and I hope it continues to work out.

Keep us posted, alright? Mallorn says she'd be more than happy to swoop in and spend some quality time with Skipper ;) ;)

It is so sweet to see the three of them together! I love the picture where they are all sharing a yummy snack. :)

I must say, I do have a soft spot for Sparky......:love:
Thanks, Jen -- I'd love to see Sparky and Ducky together. I think they'd be so adorable next to one another. :eek:

Star,
Please tell Mallorn that Skipper would love to have her company.
Yes, both Scooter and Skipper are violet factor budgies. ;)

You are so good at coming up with names -- any suggestions for the Sparky, Skipooter alliance?

Maybe "Skipootspa"....got that foreign race car sound to it...:D
Randy, you're right, it does. Unfortunately, I've been sitting her trying to say it and I think I've only gotten it out properly once -- I keep inserting constants that aren't there! :laughing:
