Hello! I've been enjoying this site for the past week and thought it would be fun to join. I've had birds most of my life -budgies growing up, then lovebirds, various finches -even a button quail! After a long happy life, the last of my finches passed away late spring, and I felt it was time to fill my big flight cage with budgies. I enjoyed my finches but missed the interactiveness of budgies, so it was time to go back to the birds I loved the most! I got my budgies about 2 weeks ago. An albino (Ghost), a standard green (Blaze), an opaline yellow/green (Summer), and a light blue opaline (Blu...for lack of a better name
) They are all very young, I tried to pick out all males, but I believe now Summer is female -white around her nostrils became more obvious a few days after I brought her home. She certainly is the bossiest of the bunch! They seem to have all settled in nicely after 2 weeks and are working on their pecking order amongst themselves. I'm working to tame them, but am sure I'm in for a long lesson in patience trying to take on 4 at once! They are currently eating millet out of my hand, so I guess we're off to good start.
Anyways -I just wanted to say "hi" and I look forward to chatting with all you budgie folks!
