I would like to introduce you to Timmy. He came to us on Feb 6th. My husband surprised me with him when I got home from work that day, after loosing our little Dickie 4 days earlier.
He seems to be a very happy bird, and is very vocal. We have been playing the Happy Budgie CD for him and he gets all excited hearing the "other" birds in the room.
Our other bird, Denny, knows Timmy is in the house. We have them separated for health and training purposes at opposite sides of the house, but Timmy is SO vocal, that Denny is responding. Denny flew out of his cage and right into the office where Timmy is this weekend. So now when we let Denny fly around the house, we close the doors to the office.
Timmy's training is going very well for only 1 week. I am working slowly with putting my hand in the cage. He will eat a small sprig of millet that I hold in front of him. I tried using a perch yesterday and he stepped up when I touched his breast near his feet with no problems. We will keep doing this until I can work my finger under him.
So here are a couple of pics. He is very young, but his cere is definitely light blue all over, but time will tell.
