I went to the hairdressers today and came back with another budgie oopsie!
I re-homed that yellow one I got last time I confessed and I decided to keep the blue one because it was such a skanky old scruff bag and I thought maybe (but probably not) I'd get it a friend again so I popped into my favourite pet shop thinking I was only going to buy one if they had a violet one. They just had the regular greeny ones so I started on my way out the door when I noticed one was following where ever I walked on the inside of her cage. I put my hand up to the bars and she (I think it's a she ) put her head on the bars and let me pet her. So naturally I bought her.
Only I (or probably Karen ) could go to the hairdressers and come home with another bird!!
Pictures to follow - camera's charging as I type!!
Cool! I think the blue one I got is male now, the brown on his/her cere has washed off a bit and it's blue underneath!! I guess it must of been wiping it's beak on the perchs as they were pretty grubby. I cleaned them all and it's beak started changing after that. It is blue for males isn't it??
Here's a picture of the blue underneath... I hope that's just dirt on there and it's not sick It seems happy enough anyway.
Oh thankyou Scully! I still thought he looked a bit manky! Hehe! He does look much better since I gave the cage a good clean though. He's a bit on the skinny side, I've been trying to fatten him up with some egg food and I've added an extra food bowl. I think the tiels were scaring him away from the food Mean old things!
