RainbowBirdie will become famous soon enough
Default The Foodie Flock TJ

So named because for some reason I name my birds things that have to do with edibles...

Normal green male (1.5 years old): Lemon Berry Fizz "Fizzy"
GF skyblue GW pied male (4 months old): Pastel Sugar Peep "Peep"

As a recap. October 20th I brought home Fizzy from the local humane society. His previous owner wasn't able to keep up with his needs after his budgie buddie had gotten loose and flew away. He's been very hard shy and it took a while to even get him to accept millet out of my hand (holding the end of a spring).

In late March I picked up Peep from a bird-specialized shop. I wasn't intending on getting a bird that particular day (though I was looking to get one soon, and had everything set up for a new arrival). But of course I saw him and it was love at first sight. He's been less difficult than Fizzy, but I attribute that to his age.

During quarantine I started putting my hand in the cage and just letting him do his thing. Peep would sort of shuffle on and off my fingers. More recently I brought him into the room with Fizzy and they started chatting away. A while of that and I introduced them to each other officially. They're peas in a pod!

So this morning we all woke up and I took their bowls out to change their water/food. On a whim I put some seed in my hand and just rested it in the cage and went to my normal morning computer routine.

Aaaaaaand.

How awesome! Well done to you and your clever babies. Isn't it a wonderful feeling when they make such great progress? You just want to scream with excitement and jump around the room, but of course, that wouldn't be wise. I look forward to reading future updates of Fizzy and Peep.

Well done with the hand feeding, Carly!

I like calling that you're calling Fizzy and Peep "The Foodie Flock". Very cute!
