Thank you! And they're slowly getting better at eating their fresh fruits and veggies. It's a process for sure

The budgies are molting again so they have a few bald spots in today's pictures But yay for me because it means more beautiful feathers to collect.

Here are some pics from yesterday's scavenging I love both of my birds' pied markings! And I love the cinnamon and opaline markings on Izzy's feathers!


And here you can see where Hermes' cobalt color turns to the green/turquoise affected by the goldenface.


And the guy that donated half of them:



Here I was trying to convince Hermes to partake in this month's BOTM contest by showing him pictures of the jungle...the scared look on his face cracks me up


Looking pleadingly up at me


After spending time in the "jungle" Hermes was double-checking to make sure nothing was beneath him!


He also needed to stock up with some water in case he was stranded in said jungle.



He soon put his traumatizing jungle experience behind him. He moved on to more important things...like impatiently waiting for a bath.


The budgie glare on his face as I took his picture instead of getting him a bath He cracks me up.


I barely got the tub inside the cage before he hopped in!



Reminds me a bit of a chicken/rooster pose here


Can you see the resemblance?


Itchy itchy!




Being cute


*sigh* First thing they do when they get veggies. They have to fling at least one out of the cage!


They got oranges, tomatoes, and a touch of thyme here



Banana for them, banana for me! This was from last week...they didn't like banana at all!


Them eyes!



Cute little Izzy had a feather sticking out on her face She also has some pink on her face left over from Valentine's Day...It's actually from their pink cuttlebone/mineral block.


Such a model

Wonderful pictures and great captions!

Hermes was a VERY brave boy for facing that scary jungle in order to be a contestant in the BOTM contest!

It looks like he enjoyed his bath a whole lot more than his jungle experience.

Those are fantastic photos, Katie!

It seems that Hermes has decided not to move to the jungle after all

Great new pics Katie! You gave me a great idea... I have two of those parrot food bowls that I'm not using. I think I'll try it as a budgie bathtub too! I spray all my birds, so I'm not sure if they'll try it. I love the pic of Herm way at the bottom of it . Then I see their food bowl is actually a "bathtub" .

Sorry I've been so inactive, it's been a little crazy! The birds now have pin feathers so are camera-shy at the moment but will try to get a few more pics this weekend! I'm also going to try to catch up and upload a video of me singing to them, which I mentioned I might do months ago And I'll update my art thread, and I might post a video of me doing liberty with Tessa! Very ambitious, I know, but if I don't set goals it's never going to happen

Haha yes, he didn't care for the jungle thing too much.

Oh yes, he fell in love with a charming, cinnamon gal! She convinced him to live a domesticated, cleaner life than the jungle

You'll have to post pictures if the birds take to the bath! And hah, yes, that blue "food dish" was the bath I originally bought for them, only to discover it's basically useless as a bath. But it makes a handy fruit/veggie dish because it's long enough that they can share it

As promised, I got some more pics today! I'm working on uploading a new video as well.

Hermes is itchy, itchy, itchy!




*yawn*


His fluffy white bottom!


Cute little McFluffles! His head cock makes him look so chubby


I was so proud of them! They ate the carrots without any seeds mixed in. Though...I'm not sure how much they actually ate and how much they threw around. Judging by what I cleaned up today, I'd say not much


I also hand fed them some nice, healthy "treats". You can see the mess they made on the bars from the veggies and they dropped about half of the treats I gave them





Hermes oh-so-patiently waiting for more


I got tired of breaking apart tiny little pieces myself, so just broke off a chunk and let the birds gnaw on it. Figure it's good for their beaks anyway


Miss Izzy came down too. She's getting a lot bolder and tame! She's naturally shy so it's took awhile to get her even to this point. I'm glad to see she's coming down quicker and quicker...sometimes she's even the first one to the bottom! (I give them their veggies and treats at the bottom of the cage so now when they see veggies or treats coming, they fly to the bottom and wait for me haha). And Herm has some carrot on his beak



Big eyes

I especially love the last pic of Izzy. Her eyes are focused forwards. I love when parrots do that, it's so cute lol. I also love fuzzy little bird bottoms (Hermes).

Lovely photos.
That fluffy white bottom looks almost like a tie dye pattern!

Felt it was time to post an update again haha. Birds are doing well...nothing super exciting going on. Still eating their veggies like champs and are enjoying getting some sun now that it's coming out! Not too many new pictures, since I kind of feel like I'm just posting the same pictures over and over again since they keep doing the same things over and over again

Hanging out on their playground during some out of cage time


Silly little goober was doing that adorable head cock



And, of course, Herm was enjoying his baths. I put their toy ball in to see if it would entice Izzy in if she had something to pull herself up or land on in the midst of the "tub." She did step on it a few times but didn't get pics. Hermes was enjoying it, though! The pictures I got of him playing with it in the bath were too blurry, so I just have this one:
