Default Angelina And Rupert Training Journal

: 3 Today and the day before yesterday I put my hand in the cage and left it there for a bit.Angelina and Rupert didn't run away cause i did it slowly. They were a bit more alert last time but this time since I've been using my voice around them a lot they didn't move in a alerted manner. Except Rupert was scared a bit because he started breathing with his beak open.

I decided to leave him alone after keeping it in there for a bit. Also, yesterday I noticed that the carrot pieces had been moved from their mirror. I don't know if they ate a bit or just moved it though. I'll keep trying with the veggies.Although now I seem to be having a bit of a problem. I think I'm allergic to Rupert and Angelina. However, its strange since today I haven't noticed any nose irritations or sneezing from them. They were in my room last time which probably is why I was sneezing most of the time.I had to clean my room after moving them but their still next to my room door.I just keep the door a little bit open but mostly closed when I'm away.

The bad part though is I have to move them when the laundry door wall isn't closed.I wonder if it will even affect them if there is a door wall where the laundry dryer and washer are. They were fine yesterday when the dryer was on but the door wall was closed. So I don't know...I'm just being cautious. I really don't want to give my budgies up because i started sneezing around them though. The other budgies I had gave me somewhat the same problem at times but I was able to manage since they were in the living room.Now my dad doesn't want them anywhere in the living room so...Idk I hope I can manage this way. I really want to take care of my budgies and watch them grow but life can be so unfair at times. : /

I'm rarely sneezing like I was before and Angelina and Rupert aren't in my room. Just next to it. These little budgies still want nothing from veggies even though I keep trying. This is kind of disappointing since I remember my old budgies would hop on my finger and chew on almost everything i gave them.I wish they would just eat their veggies already... Also I forgot to mention the black mark on Rupert's beak faded. Hes growing up XD

As I was talking and watching my budgies play with their toy that looks like the one below I saw Rupert nibbling on the carrot which I'am very happy to see. But I'm curious because my birds like to hang on the balls with their feet. Is that okay? They never had a problem with it. Even when they jump off it. But I wonder if their feet can really get stuck on it if they jump or fall off.My other budgies never jumped on it. They just played with it with their beaks so I'm unsure.

I have that toy and have never had a problem with the budgies getting caught in it.

However, any toy can present a certain risk of danger depending on the bird(s).
If you are concerned their feet may become stuck in the toy, I would remove it from the cage and only let them play with it under supervision during out-of-cage time.

I noticed today that my Budgies were happy to see me chatting again. Even more so than yesterday I think.But When they were dancing and playing around so happily I noticed Rupert stick his head in the empty space of his mirror toy.The mirror looks like this.
I'm thinkin of getting one without the food holder but will place it in a harder to reach space. It was near the bottom but still at a decent height... I never thought he would stick his head in between it. But the thing is I noticed even when I put it on a high spot my Budgies would still mess with it till it fell. So I'm starting to wonder if the mirror is even worth it. I know they really like it though.

I would remove it

Apart from them potentially becoming obsessed with it in the future, it does seem like they could get their heads/bodies stuck between the mirror and the plastic perch. It's always better to be safe than sorry!

I would not replace it with another mirror once you've removed it.
Generally, it's better to give your budgies wooden or shredding toys rather than mirrored toys.
Budgies can easily become obsessed with their reflection.

: )okay. I will keep that in mind when looking for new toys for them. Thanks!

Well it looks like Angelina's poop is fine today too so I don't think she has a problem but I still plan on taking them to see the avian vet in early October. That aside today was a great day of bonding. I had to wipe their cage a bit and at first they got scared but after I started talking to them and did it slowly they calmed down and went back to chattering. I was even able to change the tray without them jumping onto the cage and going to their safe corner. They did still watch me carefully though. After all that I felt confident with putting my hand inside for a while. Rupert was chirping while I was talking to him with my hand inside the cage. I slowly moved my hand closer to him too. At one moment he got a bit scared though. I had to move it slowly out but he was still chirping when I was moving it out.

I'm looking forward to the day when my little budgie boos will jump on my finger. It's been like 4 weeks since I got them and that's a lot more than it took my other budgies to get on my finger but its worth it. I don't see Rupert breathing through his mouth anymore either. He use to do it when he was frightened.

Also, I've been thinking about the day my budgies might have been born. If it is often seen that young budgies 10-12 weeksof age have pigment on their beaks (According to the cutelittlebirdiesaviary website)than perhaps my budgie Rupert who had a little bit of it on his beak was 11 weeks old when i got him...I'm not sure because it faded a week ago. Angelina on the other hand didn't have the black pigment on her beak and still hasn't molted yet. All I know is that she is small like Rupert and still has her baby bars.
