  Hi Ozzie,

You're so cute and you sort of look like an English Parakeet. That's what I am. My name is Parker. I say lots of things like Whatchadoing, Where's the Bird, Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, Happy Easter, Peek A Boo, I see You, We're off to see the Wizard, etc. and I whistle some tunes also like We're off to see the Wizard, The Andy Griffith Show, Wolf Call, etc. I guess I say about 40 different words and phrases and whistle about 6 tunes. Want to be Friends? Please stop by and see me and my Flock sometime cause we like getting company. Before I go I'm gonna vote for you. Bye for now.

Come visit me, Parker, Silver, APACHE IS SO HAPPY SNOWFLAKE SAID YES ON 04/27/14, Oz & Cheyenne said YES to her Jedi 5/3/14.

  ADDITION
Forgot to say he has been out the cage a few times into a yukka plant we have and on top of a budgie ornament (see photo gallery!)

Come visit me, Ozzie.

  UPDATE
Well three months on Ozzie is much more confident and now plays with Tweetie Pie in his cage.
He is still really timid with us but seems so much happier and vocal and has even learned to say "Hello" and "Baby" watch this space!

Come visit me, Ozzie.

  A little progress
I am spending at least 15 minutes a day with Ozzie just sitting next to him and talking to him - giving him attention.
He seems to be coming out of his shell a little now so I will keep trying and let you all know how progress is going.

Come visit me, Ozzie.

  Thank you
Thanks so much for your suggestions I will look into some of those.
Maybe after being in a cage with a lot of other budgies and then suddenly being alone in a cage is a big adjustment to make and its early days yet so I will keep updating.
My last budgie Barney was soooo tame would sit with me for ages and be all smoochy with me. Maybe Im expecting too much from Ozzie too soon. Barney escaped from a door and was never seen again and I miss him so much.

Come visit me, Ozzie.

  hmmm
I have heard of budgies not playing before, I have never had one. Sam my red bellied is kind of picky though he like things he can destroy easily. I have gotten sam something called shredders and it comes on a roll you can get it colored or not, there are lots of things you can do with it like add it to toys or weave it in and out of cage bars. the smart bird toys site has lots of other things to shred its kind of spendy but i am sure you can find the stuff somewhere cheaper like drsfosterandsmith.com i just chose it because they have a wide selection so here it is http://www.smartbirdtoys.com/bird-toys-shredders. htm. Sam is also by a tank of fish and he loves to watch them. Another thing i do for Sam is that i take a small box like a check box lid and fill it with paper and treats he loves to shred and eat :) Good luck getting your baby adjusted to his new home.

Come visit me, Sierra & Sam.

  NEED A FRIEND
Not sure if Ozzie is lonely doesnt seem to play with toys and still getting used to us. Maybe I should get him another male budgie as a friend? I will have to persuade my husband its a good idea first though.
I will update when I can

Come visit me, Ozzie.
