I was so over come by being back on the boards forgot to add the part of where I got him from (Laughing out loud)..
I saw an ad on one of the free ads on the web.. and noticed the postcode was the same as mine.. turns out this man down the road ( forgot to ask his name) has been breeding budgies, now he wants to concentrate on his canaries, so was selling his stock..
That isn't what the ad said though.. so although he had some lovely birds they were too used to the avairy life..
He offered to ask around to find me a younger bird.. he rang on Friday to say he had 5 I could choose from.. I feel for Bert right away.. he wasn't the youngest or the eldest some where in the middle (Laughing out loud)
He is very placid.. took to the cage fine, was playing with the toys weaving himself in and out of the hoops, sat on the swing and even went into the birdbath.. he will eat millet and lettuce from our hands... and will let us stroke him with the food.. he will move away from our fingers but he is more approachable than Buddie..
He came to the door way of his cage had a peek out then turned round and went back in...
So I think he will settle in just fine
