Hi everyone (again!)
Biskig is acting SO MUCH more social in just a day after getting the band cut off his leg! The birds still pick on him a little
, but I noticed they're not as aggressive. Actually as I'm typing this, Lemon sits atop their smaller cage, while Baby and Snow sit in it chortling, and Biskig sits on a lower perch preening. Normally he would be on the ground freaking out!
Anyway, I gave them berries in their "health salad", and you have to see what happens when budgies with white faces eat red berries! It's too cute!
This was before Snow's mineral oil treatment for scaly crawlers. Afterwards (and after Snow bit the LIFE out of the softspot between my thumb and forefinger...at least she's healthy!), I broke the gym out and eventually got everyone out of their cages:
Though, initially, Snow liked exploring his cage more:
Then Biskig came out! This is my oldest and most asocial bird, he almost always stays away!
I guess cutting off the band really made a difference?
