I had to be very sneaky. I was in a pet store along with 50 of my “closest friends” in the same enclosure, and then I saw a couple with a lot of treats and toys for their other birdies. I thought to myself, “These people are going to be my new Mommy and Daddy!” So when my future Mommy was looking at all the playful budgies, I came to the edge and asked to be picked up. Mommy immediately fell in love, but she had to convince Daddy. Mommy said that I would be a friend for Pigwidgeon and take great care of him whenever he was feeling bad because of his cancer. So Daddy said yes and then the next thing I knew I was in Birdie Heaven! I had never seen so many playgrounds, toys, and treats in my entire life. Then, I met my husband Pigwidgeon and since that day we have been a couple.. Awards

Hi! My name is Hedwig

I am a Budgerigar from Cary, NC.

Mrs. Pigwidgeon, Princess, Her Majesty, and the baby lovebird's Nana

9 years old   F


Anything that the lovebirds are eating. I also love spouts, Beak Appetit, millet, and Crazy Corn with mixed veggies.

Snuggling with my man Pigwidgeon in our tent, on my swing, and on the playgrounds.

Eventhough I know Mommy and Daddy just want me to be safe while they are not home, I do not like to go back to my cage.

I love Mommy and Daddy because they let me be me. Since they let my wings grow out, I can go explore, forage, and play anywhere I want. I also love them because they trust me to take care of my husband Pigwidgeon when he is feeling bad. I preen his little head and snuggle close to let him know that I am here with him to the end. I am so glad they picked me that day, but in reality I picked them.

I love to act like I am going to bite my sissy Ashlee, the cockatiel. It is just too much fun to see her flying around the room trying to get away from me. Also I love to sneak into the lovebirds' food dishes when they are not looking. But the thing I love to do most is to be Nana to all the new baby lovebirds that come through our aviary..

"I may be a strong, independent woman, but I still love to take care of my man.".

  Hi Hedwig
Welcome to birdchannel. I see in your profile that you don't like to go back to your cage when your mommy and daddy has to go out. Hey, who doesn't. I don't either, but it is better to be safe than sorry. Now now. Be nice ti your sissy Ashlee. Don't chase her around and don't sneak around eating out of the lovebirds' food dishes. If they catch you you know what's coming. Hugs and kisses and a v4u.

I think my mom should considered getting me a friend well I have Rolly the Canary aka The Yellow Alien. He's pretty cool. I love his cage. I have only ventured into Raptor the tiels cage once. I do have a huge problem. Evewryone LOVES my cage. Dito gets in it daily and guards it like it was his. Somedays it gets a bit much. I have become a custom to it now as that is the way it is around my place. I have always had full flight and I love being able to fly around and do as I please. My moms cool. She spoils us and puts me in charge everyday. I am the oldest and a even thou I am a good guy I keeps tabs on the rest of our flock and make sure no one gets into trouble. I am a mother hen but don't tell anyone. Gotta go have a fab day. Theo

Come visit me, Theodore, Dito & Raptor.
