Budgies

Post by Rhonda » Tue Jan 19, 2016 1:51 pm

Still having lots of fun with my little guys...the chickens are just depressing me right now.

They are so much fun to watch I have to resist the urge to keep buying them new toys. I am giving up on trying to hand tame them, it just freaks them out when I stick my hand in the cage, even with treats. Will have to be happy with them coming over to say hi through the bars. My next ones ( you know there will be more, it is like chicken math) will be hand tamed before I buy them.

Finally got them interested in some vegetables. Stuck a piece of broccoli through the bars, you would think I had stuck a green monster in there. Aftyer about an hour they figured out it was actually food and have started picking away at it. Spoiled birds. :budgie:

Hello Rhonda, it is really hard to tame a Budgie when it is with fellow Budgies. Much easier if it is on it's own. Used to breed them (English Budgies) when much younger. But good look.
