Smile Ziggy meets my new budgie.....

They like each other!

Well, maybe not like each other, but the don't fight!

I knew that at first they'd peck each other (well, Ziggy would peck at him), to establish the 'pecking order'

Ziggy just showed the budgie that she's the boss around here because she's much bigger and she's been here longer, and the budgie accepted that.

I was so pleased when Ziggy didn't bite him. It was such a suprise, and I was sure they wouldn't be friends.

They won't live in the same cage, but at least now I know I can have them out together.

That funny little budgie wouldn't let his disability stop him making good impressions on the pretty miss Ziggy, and played it cool, letting her nibble at his feathers and play with his wings.

I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship!

Budgie: "right, I'll just slowly move along this perch because I think she's chasing me!"


Ziggy: "Hey, what do you think your doing on my cage?"


New Budgie doesn't let his disability alter his life!





Ziggy: "Your wings are quite nice toys...."


Budgie: "Friends?""


Ziggy: "You know, I cost over $500 including my cage, accessories and everything else, you were free, that makes me more important"


""


Budgie: "Okay, you're boss, and your bigger than me, I get it! Now stop standing up that tall, your making me feel tiny!"


Budgie: "Actually, Ziggy, you're quite gorgeous, may I have a kiss?"


I also took a video!:

I think they're going to be great buddies!

They are very cute together! More photos please!

Aren't you scared the new budgie might have an illness that he could pass on to Ziggy since he came from such a bad pet shop?

That's too cute, Ella! I'm glad your budgie gets around so well! They're so adaptive, they really just don't give up!

Yeah, I was initially, but I took him to the vet for a quick checkup, and he gave me the go-ahead.


More photos on the way! Ziggy has taken the budgie (now called Bentley,) that she tries to feed him and mother him! It's so beautiful watching them

He was free because the awful petshop owner didn't care about him because of his disability and couldn't possibly have a disabled budgie in his petshop!

He just handed him right over! Maybe because he knew I work for the SPCA!
