Hi All!
Blossie had her annual wellness check today. I am so proud of her, because, if you don't know, Blossie steps-up when she wants to. She had always been very independent and really never liked hands at all. She doesn't mind me cleaning her cage and feeding etc...except she does get mad at times and sounds like a dolphin. (no other way to explain it).
So we go to her vet and she got weighed. She wouln't stay on the scale so we weighed the scale and then she perched on top. She weighed a whopping 30 grams and she has been the same weight for two years. The vet was very pleased as Blossom is a very tiny slender budgie. Even as a baby, she was a little runt. Her feathers are glowing due to the organic seed diet that she has been on for one year. She isn't too thin and her muscle tone is good because she has free flight and managed about three times around the exam room before the vet entered. She stayed on my shoulder and under my chin which was so uncharacteristic for Blossie. I believe she was frightened and decided I better hang around the one I know the! She let the doctor exam her and she didn't bite or fuss at all. She was the absolute best little girl in the world. I am so proud of her behavior. She had a great visit and I just wanted to share that. Her vet was very happy that she was on an all organic diet and no commercial seed mix!

I love this tiny creature with all my heart and I just wanted to share my experience with everyone.

Thanks for reading!

Glad to hear that Blossom had a great checkup! I can see in my head, her flying around an exam room. LOL
