  1. Thanks for the comments. We won't take him back as the kids love him and he's now part of the family.Just have to tame him a bit. He still gets a little scared when i put my hand in the cage, but he does sit on my finger quiet happily. The kids want me to let him out to have a fly around but i think he'll be a bugger to catch. Also Ozzie LOVES looking at his reflection, so should i put a mirror in his cage for him, or will this have a downside when it comes to taming him?
  2. BUGGER!!! The bloke from the Aviary told me he was only young, and that it was a male, but i though males had a blue nose. If he is as old as you say i can understand what you mean by taking longer to tame.
  3. Here's a couple of pics of "Ozzie", and yes he does twist himself inside out, and even tries to hide under his newspaper floor.
  4. Pardon my ignorance (and if i appear rude, i apologise). But with this amount of birds, do you mingle with them and are they friendly towards you? I know when i when and picked up our bird, the bloke went into their cage and they were frightened of him (not in a bad way).
  5. Not much so far. He's running VERY fast along the bottom of his cage. He was used to an avairy 6' x 4' x 6' into a 2' cage so he has to find the limits of the cage. He also bites VERY hard and left an indent in my finger for 1/2 hour. Looks like his name will be Ozzie (1 of the kids picked the name because of his colours), and not quite sure of his age yet.
  6. We got a new budgie today. We got this one from a breeder a few suburbs away from our house. Have been told it's a male. Will get some pics to share once he settles down a bit. Currently have the cage covered on the top & 3 sides and have a window open near him. He's already chirping at the minor birds. Colour is mostly yellow with some black through him.
  7. Our budgie used to sit on a curtain rod under the air con unit, and attack the little flaps as they swung towards her. The cold air didn't really worry her that much it was just another thing that moved that she could attack. :budgiedance:
  8. :budgiedance: :nest: But i didn't say that.
  9. A male is looking good then. :hooray:
  10. Thanks again for the kind words. They are grately appreciated. I still close the door and cover the cage every night, and uncover the cage and open the door of a morning. Force of habit i suppose.
  11. Ours female did bite all the time. She continually bit my ear, neck, pulled hairs from my head, bit my lip. She used to chew just about all the paper she could find. Throw things from the kitchen bench onto the floor, chew into the loafes of bread.
  12. Just wondering which is better male or female? We are not really worried if our budgie doesn't talk, more about the local bird noises. We have Lorikeet's, Galah's, Rosella's, etc,etc in our area, and those noises are great.So if our budgie could make those noises we'd be very happy indeed. Our little "angel" used to make those noises and it was like living constantly outside. So which would be better for our needs? (Possibly going to look for a white and grey one after Easter) Thank in advance Craig
  13. Here is what the bell started in. http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j169/AGR...rd/100_1111.jpg One of her favourite things to ride on.She used to sit on the cage of the fan whilst it oscillated. Who me? I didn't tare the phone book or other magazines apart.
  14. Thanks for all those nice words.Here she is playing with one of her favourite toys.http://s80.photobucket.com/albums/j169/AGR...nt=100_1225.flvIf i could download it straight to here the vision would be clearer.
