  1. Im so glad I found this thread coz because my boy is also infatuated with his swing (and having his way with it constantly) !!! He runs back to his cage when we get him out and tries to get back to it. I realise now that because Im a shift worker I have been getting him up early and hes been going to bed late. Poor bugger thinks its spring. Sleep in ordered from now on..... Moderator’s Message changed coz to because. please do not use shortcuts - use only approved shortcuts found in guidelines.
  2. Heres some photos of all of my birds http://members.iinet.net.au/~adamf/UNI_0543.JPG http://members.iinet.net.au/~adamf/UNI_0543.JPG http://members.iinet.net.au/~adamf/UNI_0615.JPG http://members.iinet.net.au/~adamf/UNI_0507.JPG http://members.iinet.net.au/~adamf/UNI_0513.JPG http://members.iinet.net.au/~adamf/monty.JPG Hope you enjoy them
  3. Arent they lovely when they let you scratch their heads? My billy will only let me do it and not my husband. I have no idea why, because he actually flies across the room to get to my husband if he hears his voice. Well done for chosing a bird with lots of personality
  4. Billy doesnt kiss! He bites! HARD he loves lips and its like he's trying to find out how we talk and nips you. Its a very un-sociable habit and he has no shame in biting new guests. We try and distract him, but its not easy. He said 'dont' and 'hi' this week.
  5. I love playing spin the bottle......I hope I'm next
  6. Im no expert so maybe some of the others might know, Billy is still very young and has not yet turned bright blue. At times it looks 'pearly'and then will go a bit darker. I beleive their ceres dont change until 8 months and billy is only about 4-5 months I'm not sure about older birds, can anyone else help?
  7. Im so glad that Billy makes other people laugh as much as he makes me laugh!! He really has got so much personality, hes so spoilt. He comes into bed with us in the morning and spends time chirping and biting, and sleeping, he loves destroying magazines and tissues.. I really enjoy it and I think he does as well.He has some broccolini now. So he is quiet. Unfortunatley he has a very unsociable habit of biting lips and for some reason he only bites men on the ear. People at work make fun of me.... they call me the bird lady but I dont think they realise ow special these little terrors are. THis morning he said.... "naughty pretty boy." Its like I know im bad but Im cute too......so it doesnt matter Bless him
  8. Its funny you should say that because he actually tells you off if u try and type near him or use the mouse! He walks up to the screen and licks the screen where the mouse is pointing. It can be a welcome distraction when trying to finish an assignment. He needs some little glasses and a brief case
  9. Oh I feel for you. I too had the outbreak of megabacteria and unfortunatley lost my budgie to it. He put up a long fight but he died of a secondary infection. The avian vet gave him Amphotericin B which is an anti-fungal and worked well but Harry was not strong enough to fight in the end, Hang in there, I know how hard it is but it sounds like you are doing all that you can and it's up to the bird now. Good luck
  10. Hi and welcome, he is sure a cutie. I got my baby about the same stage as you and he is now a total chatterbox (Ive had him about 4 months) They bring you so much laughter with their antics. Mine also falls off ladders and carries huge things up to the top of his cage and drops them for sound effect! At the moment he has a piece of carrot in his beak and is running around the top of his cage, like a victory dance! Careful what you say around them, they are excellent mimics. Mine said bollocks the other day
  11. He he I just have, thanks for the advice. Sharyn
  12. Here is a photo of Billy helping with my assignment ITS SO CUTE. He loves my laptop Sharyn members.iinet.net.au/~adamf/UNI_0539.JPG
  13. I also forgot to say, He is learning new words and the other morning he said as claear as a bell .........BOLLOCKS. I don't know where he got it from but Im pointing fingers at hubby. He is so hyperactive, I keep asking if anyone has given him red cordial.
  14. Here are some photos of Billy, he is all grown up http://members.iinet.net.au/~adamf/UNI_0522.JPG http://members.iinet.net.au/~adamf/UNI_0531.JPG http://members.iinet.net.au/~adamf/UNI_0534.JPG Hope you can see them
  15. I will add a picture soon. Camera is out of action. Since we got Billy he has loved rolling onto his back with his feet in the air. It started when we put plain paper in the bottom of the cage and he used to grab the corner and roll himself up in it like a cone. since then if you play fight with him he puts his foot up on your finger and rolls on his back to play he loves rough and tumble. We love him to bits Sharyn
