Regular readers may remember the advent of our two budgies, democratically voted into the family as Mary and Joseph.
Sadly, Mary became ill on Thursday and died in the early hours of Friday morning.....
We buried her in a nice part of the garden.
After cleaning and disinfecting the cage, and ascertaining that Joseph continues in excellent health, we decided to get a replacement........
well, we ended up with another three birds, as we couldn`t decide amongst them. Luckily we have a palatial size cage, which can accomodate 4 birds easily.
We now have:-
Dash (male), who is green and very active and named by DH after a character in The Incredibles.
Alice (named by DD1 after a character in Resident Evil....thanks, DoomHamster !) She is pale green with a yellow head.
Violet (named by DD3 after a character in The Incredibles) She is pale blue and grey, with violet cheek patches.
So now we have two males and two females, and everyone seems to be settling in well. Alice is extremely bossy, and elbows the others off the perch if *she* wants to sit there :-)
They are busy chirping as I type.
They are such cheerful birds to have around, and so very pretty.
I hope one day to see a flock of them in the wild in Australia !
