Budgies are probably one of the most abundant birds when it comes to wild flocks haha

I saw a bit of Paulie when it was on Netflix. If I remember correctly, I got bored and stopped watching it. LOL.

I can't remember though, I heard a lot of people talking about before so maybe it is good and I'm just impatient and can't sit through a movie haha.

that wouldn't go over well with my flock they are only semi tame and don't care about spending time with me… very typical of them

So they aren't tame at all? You know you could try working with one! It would take a lot of time and patience but would be worth it!

semi tame as in they will only step on a perch and not my finger leon is the only one that will come on my finger. 4 of them are new to coming out, most currently, bowie (i took him out today!) and so i am still working with them. bobby is very nervous out of the cage and i have noticed that he is acting differently then i thought he would outside. i tried to get pickles on my finger and she ran off

I loved Paulie. Funny in parts and sad in others. But then I can cry with some tv ads. But anything with animals if there is a sad bit in it is sure to set me going.
