Default Alfie ! (Ongoing thread)

A couple days ago I saw a little baby budgie and felt a connection! I had been thinking about getting a bird and planned on going to a bird show at the end of next month.

Well, that day I kept thinking about the little budgie and talked to my mom. A few hours later, Alfie was home!







He has settled in wonderfully! He really loves his out-of-cage time and tries his best to fly. I can't wait until his flight feathers grow back in, as I believe they were clipped where I got him from. He's so sweet!

Your Alfie is adorable! It's great that he is settling in so well, considering you have only had him for such a short period of time.

He will grow back his flight feathers after the clipped ones are moulted.
I couldn't help to notice Alfie has a split leg band and these can be particularly troublesome/hazardous in the long run.
After Alfie is perfectly settled in, it would be a good idea to book his first appointment at the avian vet for a wellness check as well as to remove the leg band.

I completely agree with aluz regarding getting the leg band removed as soon as possible.

Alfie is just so sweet -- I'm totally smitten with your little guy!

Thanks so much everyone! And thank you for letting me know about the leg band!! I would not have even noticed it was split. I will get that taken care of as soon as possible once he's all settled in!

It's been a long time since I've updated this thread--sorry! In the meantime Alfie has grown a ton--he is in the process of his first molt and he is almost unrecognizable from the first picture I posted--I knew his face had gotten wicked brighter but didn't realize just how pale it once was. So cool!
