I adopted him from the humane society. No name yet.
He was found as a stray outside and I saw him while he was still unavailable. He became available yesterday so I went and got him.
It took some coaxing to get him to step up and he hasn't stepped up again since, he flies like crap and does not understand what a wall is. His feathers are pretty shabby which I'm not surprised about from a bird who was found outside.

I'm debating on clipping him for hand taming so he doesn't hurt himself smashing into walls when trying to fly, he's really inquisitive and is right now singing at the guy mowing the grass outback behind the house. He sings at everyone but backs up if you try to reach for him but quickly returns front and center when you pull your hand away, I'm hoping this is a good sign for taming.

None of my budgies are tame, they'll step up if they have too (I'm ok with it, they have eachother for company and they are happy and fun to watch even if they won't love me back lol)

(for record I now have 3 budgies and a cockatiel, though budgie count might increase to 4 if this lone male budge is still at the humane society on pay day, an even flock of 4 will fit nicely in my budgie cage.)

Aww, your new friend is gorgeous, I'm glad you were able to adopt him! :)
I wish you the best of luck with him, surely his condition will improve so much more, now that he is under your care.

Thank you, i still gotta think up a good name for him, I've been calling him Beep cause he beeps at me a lot but i dunno if I want to make that his name yet.

His poor tail is so trashed, luckily birds molt.
