butch's first vet appointment :)

butch had his first vet check up today ($99 later.... ). he did good he is going though a severe spring molt again. he weighs 33 grams. and he got his nails clipped too. he was nervous in the car going there but on the way back he was much happier and grooming himself and eye pinning his toys

it kind of makes me more motivated to find him a friend. he's just not the same singing to himself. and a small pet store that gets from local breeders sells hand tame budgies in the most unique colors (not like the chain store birds..). but in the meantime i have designed some new foraging/shredding/preening toys

i want to i havent really asked my parents yet... i really want to get a keet and a tiel. a small family owned pet store gets their birds for local breeders and they sell hand tame ones for 30-35$. i am usually an adopter but i want a tame bird for butchs sake and the shelter is like 45minutes to an hour away. and every time i go to this per store, they always have the nicest looking birds, beautiful color mutations.. none of that cliche crap at the bird mill chain stores...

lenny was sick, just puffed and not singing. we brought him and he was taking meds but they didnt help and he pasted away before his 2nd check up so the following monday i brought butch. i think he missed lenny, he doesnt sing as much and we have gone back a step in his training :/
