so much to say...

well a lot has been going on. i have been keeping up with lennys training (read my thread "lennys millet addiction"), i took some pics of him going to my in the cage with the millet.




i also fixed a ladder this morning. it was broken since i had pumble and i fixed it them with toothpicks and masking tape (pumble never chewed it). i wanted to start using it so i used some jute rope and beads (and millet afterwards) to make it more appealing to the fids.

before:


after:


and lenny was the first to see the millet on it after i put it in the cage. first he sat on the perch and looked at it for a while:



then he started eating!:




here are some other pics from yesterday...

playing with the water (i cleaned and put the seeds back in one of the containers when they were done )


getting sleepy...


butch itching his head due to new feathers




sleepy lenny singing to butch (they always do this, but they usually do this together at each other and they are usually more awake)

Replace the plastic and dowel perches with natural wood ones and rope ones to prevent bumblefoot and arthritis occuring.

Also keep an eye on the bells for them starting to rust inside, had to throw a whole bunch of my 'bird safe' bells out because of rust.

They are beautiful birds. I bet they love the "fixed" ladder. My budgies love to chew on bits of string like that.



Plus 2 guinea pigs and a lot of chickens

i do have a rope perch and i am going to put it in when they come out so i dont scare them soon they will come out. the plastic perches are different sizes but once they come out and i can do more with the cage, i will get many different sized perches. and i do check the bells often
