Talking We got our budgies!

We bought them today, they came over - the people, and just handed us them and took the money. We called them Billy and Cosmo hehe!

I checked them over straight away, eyes bright, feather perfect, Cosmo has a little bit of what looks like scaly face so shortly I will be going out to get the treatment! They're fine though. Cosmo is the American version and Billy is by the looks of things a hybrid between the two

They're very cute.
Not hand-tame but once I clipped their wings they were fine! Billy is far more shy and Cosmo doesn't like hands much but he loves shoulders.

When my camera is up and running I'll take some far better pictures, but in the mean time, I've got some crappy phone ones!

The first picture is Cosmo and Chewee sitting on my boyfriends shoulder
The second is the same hehe
The third is Billy
The fourth is Cosmo - note the beak!

They are very pretty. Congratulations!


Is Cosmo both blue and purple? I love purple budgies. I would like to find a purple budgie some day.

That's a nice boyfriend you have there to keep the birds for you.


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!
