Soggy Sam

Sam has been going through such a rough time. She had broken blood feathers and had a respiratory infection. She has recovered very well now and is back with all the other budgies. She's loving it. I took some pictures of her in the bathroom before and after her second shower. It annoyed me how she flattened all of her feathers in the pictures. It makes her look so small! She's HUGE, and by far the biggest budgie I own. She's about 2/3rds bigger than a normal budgie by far.

(sorry these aren't on my DSLR, my old kodak now works a lot more so I don't have to hunk around my huge camera )

Wow, she's big, and she is one P.O.'d budgie! The look on her face after her bath is priceless! If looks could kill! LOL!

She likes scritches. Another budgie loves them too (Tom)

Thanks guys

I've heard some say that english budgies look like cranky old men, but I don't think sam looks that way, I think she's the cutest english I've seen.
