We met at a breeders house, who had a bunch of great friends like Parrolets, Cockatiels, and Budgies. I held a number of Budgies and Sammy was the best behaved, cutest, youngest, and was born on Christmas Day. Although I wished I could take them all, each one was amazing..

Hi! My name is SamWise

I am an English Type Budgie from Santee, CA.

Sammy, Sammers, Samboy, SammyBammy

8 years old   M

English Type Budgie

I love millet, lettuce, and anything with eggs in it, especially egg biscuits

I love to hang out on my home made playground with my buddies and on the highest perch in the room at the top of the window

Loud noises and hot weather

He always talks with us and sings with us. He makes sure I get good food and plenty of yummy treats like millet and egg biscuits/sticks- . He builds us fun playgrounds with so many toys and perches for us to play. I really love that he basically gave up his room for us to have fun.

playing and talking with everything, feeding all my friends and singing and chatting all day long.

Live Happy and Be Merry!.

  What a clever birdie!
Samwise, I want to thank you for giving Mom such great suggestions about sisal and hemp and other stuff I can chew! Right now my favorite toy is two pinecones tied to the cage bars just above a T-perch so I can really get serious leverage action going as I shred the pinecones! (I also love to sit on Mom's finger and chew a cone that Mom holds for me--if she lets go of the pinecone, I can throw it all the way across the room!) Coconut sounds like a really good idea too. I'll be leaning on Mom to do some shopping for me! I think it's great that your birthday is Christmas--does that mean you get twice the presents? Turtle Bird, my big brother, hatched on New Year's Eve so he's a real party bird. Nobody knows my hatch day, but that's okay 'cause it means that EVERY DAY is my hatch day, especially since before I came to my present and forever home, nobody ever gave me many toys, 'cause they just didn't understand me. Mom tells me, those days are over. Now I have fun all day long, Mom calls me the bluebird of happiness. You keep on shredding!

Come visit me, Turtle Bird.

  I love the name! My birds also have Lord of the Rings names... Samwise is beautiful, and so are your other budgies. Your Reccesive pied in the photo looks just like my Arwen.

  Thanks for the reply
I too have been busy. I am basically a stay at home "mum" to my birds but about 2 to 4 times a year I bid and accept an F/X job doing the "gore, blood and special body effects" in movies. Then I go to location and do my job, get paid and come home again. So, I am home and it appears all is well here. Mr. Bumble is doing great! Even though as you said...the pellets are not going over that well! They are left at the bottom with the empty seed hulls. But he eats so well other wise that I am not pushing him. He is eating the vitamin suppliment and I get him the highest quality seed I can find. I have been sprouting that seed!! With much more success. Have you ever heard of flax seed oil? It comes from the health food store and I buy it for Ruby on the vets recommendation. (I use it too!) She loves it on her veggies and Mr. Bumble has gotten a taste for it now and the vet said "Great!" Well, must be going. Thanks again for all your help!! Mr. Bumble and Faye

  Hello again!
Mr. Bumble here. The blood work results have come back earlier this week and I have a completely clean bill of health! The Avian vet said as healthy as I am I am looking at a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years. I was given a suppliment for my food for "senior citizens" it is suppose to keep my joints, skin and blood vessels supple. My diet is good. 1/2 pellets, 1/2 seed mix. Plus human food added in every day. Mum is tring "sprouting" on the recomendation of the vet. I eat anything offered me so I am sure I'll eat that too. I do bath everyday too. Don't know if that has anything to do with my health besides being able to be out of my cage all day to fly and play on differant gyms. I have adjusted here very well. I come sit with my new mum every day and talk to her (I have an English accent like my real Mum and it always makes my new Mum smile to hear my little high English voice speak!!!)Mum says I am a "proper little gentleman"! I say "I am a pretty, pretty bird!" Thank you so much for all you advice and help! I will definately be in touch again should questions arise. Here's a vote! Thank you kindly!!! Mr.Bumble and Faye

  Hi SamWise,
You are a pretty birdie. My dad bought a birdie just like you for a friend who was just learning about birds. My dad taught he everything he should know to take care of that little guy. I have a brother and two sisters but they are different than me. Here's a vote for you. Your friend, Tiki

Come visit me, Tiki, Poko, Sunshine & Tango.

I think you are cute, are you really able to talk a lot? I heard English budgies are very good at talking and American Budgies dont talk? Wonder why? I hope you have a fun-tastic day with your family.

  Good news!
Hello there. I was at the vet today. The vet was very impressed by my age and said he rarely saw a bundgie my age and looking as spry as me. Upon visual exam the vet said I seem very healthy. No tumors or obstructions. The vet did take alot of blood (ouch!) We won't know about those results till later. Wanted to let you know. Giving you another vote for all your help. Thanks again!!

  Thank you!
Thank you again for you detailed response to my questions. I really do appreciate it! Mr. Bumble has an Avian Vet appointment this Monday coming up. I will be very interested to see how his blood work comes back and to hear about his general health. I think he "appears" very healthy but we all know how tricky that is with our birds. I am a stay at home "bird mom" so I do have all day to devote to Bumble and Ruby and they both seem very content with the way things are so I most likely will not add another bird while Bumble is alive. Now that I know he is old I will make his world as delightful for him as he makes mine. They are the nicest little parotts!! Mr. Bumble certainly has shown me what a delightful pet a bundgie is!! Thank you! Here's a vote!

  Hello again from Byrd and Bella!
Oh, that's really cute! Five of my birds are hobbits: Merry, Pippin, Lily, Daisy, and Bella. They're all cockatiels. My friend has two cockatiels named Frodo and Sam. My other four cockatiels are yet to have a webpage because my camera isn't working vey well. It's very cute that you call the vet's office Mount Doom and that's where you destroyed the ring! Byrd and Bella

Come visit me, Bella & Byrd.

Hi! Is your bird named after a hobbit? If so, my birds are also named after hobbits! Some don't have webpages, though. Byrd and Bella

Come visit me, Bella & Byrd.

  Hi Sammy form Tiki
I sure do love you Sammy even though you scare me when you fly above my head. You are so pretty and have this great attitude, so happy all the time. You love all birds and are not afraid of all of us in the house. Well, maybe Wiki (Cockatoo)cuz she is so big and acts weird with your Daddy. She gets like that but she really does love you! Bad owners in her past life can really hurt a bird long term. Anyways keep being a nice bird who sings so pretty and just loves you so much. Take care, love Tiki

Come visit me, Tiki, Miki & Wiki.
