I have just purchased three young budgies from a breeder. I have an outdoor aviary (given to me by my family a little while back for a birthday gift). They thought it would be good
for my hand raised cockatiels, now singular as Bobby flew away just before Christmas . My cockatiel is indoors as handraised, though sometimes outside in a cage when we
are out there such as barbecuing etc.
I got the budgies seeing I have the aviary which is undercover on the back patio. I only got them today and put them out there. I do have to say it is nearly 9pm now
and the three of them are hanging off high up the front (1) and the other two on the side of aviary on the mesh that fronts aviary. I am thinking the perch is not up high enough
and this is why they may be doing that? As far as I know Bluey is male (reasonably deep blue colour) and the other two are female. Blossom is green/yellow and Olivia is pale powder
I also have other animals and have only recently ventured into birds, aside from poultry which I have.
I hope to breed eventually. All suggestions gratefully received.
