He Finally Has A Name!


Recommended Posts

Took me long enough, because I am usually quite extravagant with names. ;) But I'd like to introduce my little man: Pippin Tiberius Puck.

Don't fret - I just call him Pippin. But I'd like to think that he is going to have some great adventures, so every adventurer needs an epic name, right? :lol:

After five days, he is getting used to my shoulder quite well! Not bad for an aviary bird. But he is still a bit timid, and understandably so because my house can be a bit noisy. I am still trying to get him onto the vegetables (tips for introducing greens and even some new toys would be so very welcome!), but he has had a few nibbles on apple for now. I have him booked for his initial checkup at the vet on Friday just to be sure that everything else is okay.

 

And I just love this picture too much:

My budgies Love their Leafy greens left a bit wet and Hung off the cage I just use clothes pins (plastic ones Learned not to give them wooden ones they just destroy them and I'm buying a new 100 pk a week LOL)

 

their favorite is Kale and Collard Greens and Big Leafy lettuce like Romaine and Red leaf Lettuce

Hi magic lady, wow what a name! I sure hope he lives up to it!!:o :o But Pippin is a great name and goes with the second photo.

 

How long did it take to come up with that? I've had my new bird over two weeks now and we are divided between Sparky and Comet. He is a bit of both.;)

Haha - Hezz, I actually just call him Pippin. and it was just because I was as indecisive as you!

I was thinking of calling him Tiberius after James Kirk in Star Trek, but I knew the poor fella would probably have troubles learning it. ;) And Puck wasn't acceptable because my family was concerned it could be associated with "a bad word". :rolleyes:

Names are the hardest and I had trouble until I really knew the bird. But I love names which have a bit of a rhythmic feel to them and with strong consonants - Piccolo was my first budgie's name, Scouty was his best friend. :) I liked Pippin because it had that rhythmic lilt that I wanted in a name.

 

love the name :)

Yeah, he is still a bit unsure of things. But I'm happy that he is off to a great start after the long weekend. He has certainly enjoyed climbing on the cushions around my bed, eating millet on my desk. Little explorer, boldly going where no budgie has gone before. :wub:

 

I managed to get him to nibble on some apple this afternoon - so happy!

Such a cute shot. I like the idea of Tiberius 'going boldly'.

 

AS for the greens, also try some raw beetroot. Someone on here put me onto it, and mine just luurrrves it. Lasts for quite a while in the fridge too. And carrot. As many different veges as you can when they're still young and open to new things. If they don't eat it at first, they probably will later.
