Scooter And Latte


Recommended Posts

This is Scooter

 

scooter14.jpg

He is a budgie that came from a petshop and has rickets causing him to have little use of his feet for perching. I am in the process of making him special perches and toys :D

He still has 3 weeks of quarinene to go.

 

And this is Latte..

She is the baby i have selected to be Scooters friend. She is a pretty Skyblue Cinnamon Pied.

I took this picture of her this morning and she is already bigger than Scooter at 24 days old hehehehe

She still has 2 weeks or so with her parents then she come inside.

 

Here is their cage i purchased yesterday :(

It is, as you can see, totally bare so i have LOTS of toy making and buying to do in the next few weeks :(

 

I have always only had aviary birds, so having these two inside is going to be a real experience for me, i am very excited. I am hoping to tame Scooter. He is about 4-5 months old and quite flightly, but he is already calmer today then he was a week ago :(

I hope so.. i dont think there will be a problem taming Latte as i have held her since she was teeny weeny :( - i am hoping Scooter will see she is calm with me and tame for me too :D

I look forward to Latte coming inside... i feel the period between her coming out the the box and being weaned from her parents will be the toughest part....

My kids are crazy for birds - must be in the blood hehehe. I have had a tiel, Sammy, inside for about a month now. I have been taming him for my dad - Sammy is flying to Melbourne (to be with my dad) next Thursday. They are going to be devastated when Sammy goes :(

 

Good luck and good fun! :D

It will be great. I picked Latte for her name because her cinnamon markings are the colour of a perfect mid-strength latte.... MMMMMMmmmmm coffee hehehehe

NICE CAGE ! Nice bird the wee Latte is too. I'm sure she will be great company for Scooter & you will have a great time having these birds as inside pets.

Latte is so cute :( They are going to be so happy together in their (very nice) new cage!

 

I have just ordered a bunch of new toys and stuff from http://www.parrotrescuecentre.com they are pretty good prices and I think that the profits go to looking after their birds, only safe materials and only charge a postage fee of like $8 for no matter how much you buy. Bea put me on to them. They even have a little happy house for budgies, which is like a fury hanging hut, so cute. My boyfriend put me on a spending ban :D after ordering from their website, so be careful!

I am sending my boyfriend up our gum tree tomorrow to find me a nice branch to make mine :D

OH Liv ... he is a wee guy. What a poor baby. He looks even smaller without his flights. He seems pretty calm with you. I'm impressed.

he is tiny... he is my smallest bird now. I am blown away, he is still sitting happily on my shoulder.

He is nibbling my hair - Just because my hair is the colour of millet, doesn't mean it tastes like millet hahahaha

How cute that he is sitting on your shoulder playing with your hair! :D

I have a tiny wee baby, still in the nest box that was the last of a clutch of 8. A friend of mine recently adopted some of my "retired" budgies and a couple of babies for her father's nursing home. They have a fabulous new aviary to spend their twilight years at and I think my tiny wee one will be going there too.

Perhaps there is someting in the air today.... or something with the weather change, because when i went in my avairy this morning to do my usual rounds, i was mobbed by all my young male budgies (they are all 5 months old). They were sitting on my shoulder, standing on my hand and nibbling at me.... was realllllllyyy ODD :D

Perhaps I have changed my shampoo to some sexy budgie ferimone (sp?) scent or something hahaha

That swing looks fantastic!!! When I first made my toys, the tiels took about 5 mins to check them out, some of the budgies took 5 days!!! It looks like your birds are going to be very spoilt... :hap:

Scooter likes his swing :budgiedance:

He has been chewing at it and chatting it up for a day or so so i had suspected he might jump on it soon. I peeked under his cover late last night to see him roosting on his swing hehehe :D

 

Its a shocking photo, but i didn't want to scare him.

Scooter is a lovely boy. He is currently sitting on my shoulder singing sweetly to my birds outside.

Latte is growing fast and looks almost ready to fledge. I really look forward to her coming inside :budgiedance:

Awwwww......such a cute picture! Your swing looks awesome, you did a great job. Where did you buy your stuff from? I might have to make up a fancy swing for Vi to play on at some point (when Adam makes fixtures for me to attach toys to (Laughing out loud))
