She just looked so sad. I saw her sitting at on the bottom of her cage at the store, so she came home with me. She used to be so afraid of people that she would thrash in her cage till she was bloody whenever she saw people. Now she is quite happy and loves her people..

  Hey Girlfriend! Good to hear from you.
I've got to tell you, the art below is awesome. You've really studied your horses. Its rare to see the soul of the animal captured but you've done it well. My Fuzzy Wuzzy is a Budgie is doing very well. She is the biggest budgie I own and has formed an attachment to Keenie Greenie. Keenie isn't on here yet as I have so many already. but he's so cute its hard to resist. He's Olive green, thus the name. Actually, I have a major shortage of males too. Any recommendations? There's only one Show quality English Breeder in our tri state area. I may have to cave and ship. I really want a Spangle but he would be a breeder. I need to keep size in my line as well. I have one very old male but he's been passed from breeder to breeder when I got him. He's lovely but retired. Wonderful to look at but can't hold. I'd love to have more like him and like your beautiful birds. They would be breeders though. Must go feed babies. God bless you, my friend. Let's talk soon.

Come visit me, Zoe, Jade, Mocha, Harvey, Joe, Java, Rosie Bourke, Fuzzy, Jasmine, Gazania, Sir Cosmic Prince Buzzy, Prizm and Chicklet, Vinnie & Miss Majestic.

  Hi from Gazania's mom
After the government took our farm, we relocated to a very old and run down 150 acre farm. Its all we could afford since the government didn't pay us much for our old farm. But we took the horses with us and stopped showing all together. It was just too expensive. Mom had another little girl (13 years after me!) And still had to go back to work with two teenage daughters and a bunch of horses. Still, we had the Arabs and my Beauty was my best friend. As for Budgies, I do have a large flight cage. We are looking for a larger home but don't have room for another yet. Maybe later or by Christmas. Sure would appreciate your prayers. Its really time for a permanent home for all of us. ") Read the website. We had to move a few years ago. My husband's shop moved to China leaving him without a job. BUT, as you've already guessed the LORD JESUS is our strength and HE provides! I think we better wait on my purchasing your babies. Let's stay friends on line until I can provide the best place for them to keep us BOTH happy. My word is as good as a contract to me so we need to wait until I can make the kind of promises you need for your precious little jewels. I'll be taking pictures today so hopefully can get them up on here. I need to add my Joe the Orange Wing Amazon. He needs a girlfriend so pray for him too. Must get busy and start snapping pics. God bless you and prosper you in whatever you put your hand to.!

  Yo-yo absolutly loves any kind of green leaf thing. You name it, he will eat it. They all eat, well, everything. I have not found something they will not eat. Frank is turning hormonal, lovely Spring time! I hve learned to gage when he will bite, but this does not help when he gets angry away from the cage. It is a very long way back to his cage while he is latched on to your hand. I do not ever give him any reaction, I do not look at him, I just think ver hard about my displeasure, and he gets the message! After he has cooled down I give him a few treats. I do not think these hormones are from me nudging him on unconsiesly, because I am very aware of that, and I got him becasue he went hormonal last Spring. So I will just have to work through it. He is still a very sweet, funny boy, just more dangerous!

  what a great name!

  I hope you find a home for her. She would probably get along really well with regal Ava, but Peter can barely even manage to keep feathers in all his antics, at the moment he has but one ragged tail feather. He is not molting either. Yo-yo is doing great. He is turning out to be a very sly little fellow, and I can almost see him planning what to do next to get ahead of Frank. Despite this, they enjoy whistling and singing with each other. He much better about hands, and loves getting new toys and food, even though he will not eat any fresh food so far besides some brown rice or oats. He did convert to pellets immediatly, and these he eats before his seed even. I hope it goes well with my budgies as well, even if the eggs do not hatch again.

  How is she doing? Is she part of the flock fully now? It certainly seems that way from the group shot you have.

  Yes, I am glad that of my birds get along so I do not feel the need to get them all a friend of their own spieces. I am okay with budgie babies, not sure I want a bunch of quaker babies, though!

  Hopefully Ki-yo-to will get better! Yeah, it's so much better for them to have birdey friends to play with. I feel so bad for budgies that are kept singly- it's just not natural. Although having a flock as big as mine makes for quite a bit of drama. We have all sorts of soap operas going on all the time. Not to mention a population explosion every Christmas..

  That is so great about her not being a mute and gaining weight. Thank you for your suggestions, I will try it. Ki-yo-to is better. He whistles now back to me and playes with a mirror toy I gave him alot. Still so week that if I blow to hard it seems as if he might fall over. Maybe Elly May's cage was hit or something when she spoke, who knows? Hope she becomes friends with Crissy. I think it is so great to see birds that are friends, more like they would be in the wild.

  Thanks! I originally intended to breed her, but have decided against it.

  Thank you-her green is pretty- she's a Dark Green Cinnamon Wing. I think she looks like a little hillbilly. She does communicate a little. She is withdrawn because she was very badly treated before I got her (I think). She doesn't even like other birds much. Chrissy is gradually befriending her, which makes me happy. I just discovered yesterday that she is not a mute. She had a gram negative infection (from the stress of being babysat by a friend of mine) and she screams like she's dying when I catch her to give her her meds. It's the first time in a year that I have heard her make noise. But she is doing better than when I got her- she's gained 10 grams, and doesn't hyperventalite any more.

  That is a very pretty green. I love the photo of all your budgies from above. Does she ever try to comunicate, even if she is mute? I just wondered if they seem to want to talk when around other birds.
