    Hi all My two budgies are really learning to fly now and it is an absolute pleasure watching them trying out different techniques. They were so erratic and clumsy at first but are gaining confidence in their new found aerobatic ability dailyJoyful to see ❤
    P.S I just carry on as normal and they are allowing me closer to them daily..their fear is reducing

    Both had been kept in a small cage all the time so I guess they were out of practice and their muscles were weak. Lovely to see them grow stronger..physically and emotionally. They already chatter and sing alot more especially when I play a Budgies singing video via Youtube lol

    I adore budgies, totally annoys me when you come across those people that look down their noses at them or only only seem to think larger parrots are special WRONG the dinky dudes are freaking awesome
    Really inquisitive high intelligent come in an awesome set of colour ranges too
    Have you ever seen the half siders?

    Wow!! They are magnificent!
    I don't have the time to devote to a larger parrot. With these two I know if I'm out for a few hours they'll be safe and entertain themselves without developing destructive habits. They have a place with people like me!! X

    @Nigalius yes they really do exist :) its a genetic mutation ….. ok so they are all born sterile so can't be bred from but other than that live normal length of lives apparently
    The above one is called Twiney
    There is a really lovely one in Australia half yellow half powder blue
    There this one state side

    they are amazing and I am pleased they cannot breed these lovely birds as I can just imagine the price that may be given and instead of being loved they will become a way of making monies. Like people Colour only makes it a far better variety to look at but its how they are inside that counts. Ok I will be proud to show off the bird as yet another wonder of nature but like all my flock from large to small they get treated the same and loved the same. I got offered a stupid amount of money for my Beryl but our love and understanding for each other was priceless.
