Update on my budgies... with PICS!

Update on my budgies... with PICS! - 01/22/07 09:05 PM

For all of you confused or anything about my budgies, here is an UPDATED story about the little angels!

I took in a budgie named Violet about a week and a half ago. She is now going to a good new home to help her recuperate as she came from an overcrowded cage, etc. She's a real beauty and I will try to get pics of her before she leaves tonight. I'll miss her but I already have my hands full and she needs a bit more attention than I can give right now. My dog (in my avatar) has bad ear infections and Dad and I are busy fighting that off... ugh! So expensive!

I now have FIVE budgies (not including Violet). I have the new HQ cage, which I got from BirdsComfort.com. It's AMAZING! I do hear that WindyCityParrot.com is better though for those of you looking for it (they have the same cage for about $120, free S&H). I have four of my budgies in the big cage and plan on keeping it at a max of four.

My NEWEST bird, Belle, is most likely a female. She is a dominant pied, white with some really striking blue on her "shoulder" areas and back under her wings. She is set up in one of my old cages for now, but I hope to get a wider one for her soon (possibly try to find someone to trade cages with or sell these two older cages to save up for a new one). She is BEAUTIFUL as well! Here's her pic:

My other bird that was named Belle is ACTUALLY a male! So I have renamed him Huey. HE is a recessive pied, all yellow with a little green under his wings on his back and on his belly. I now have Huey, Snow, Sammy, Lucy, and the NEW bird Belle! Three males and two females. Here is a picture of Huey (the FORMER Belle):

Sammy and Lucy are happy as always. Lucy is a lutino and Sammy is a yellow-faced sky blue? Something like that... I don't have any good new pictures of them but here they are together:

And of course, I can't forget Snow, my all white dark-eyed clear:

So that's it! I am working on getting newer pics, but my batteries are going dead from taking so many! Oh, and here is a picture of the new cage:

Why will Belle not be in the big cage??

Thanks! I'm keeping her separate because the large cage is only big enough to comfortably fit four budgies. I will also probably be breeding her with Snow eventually (not til November or December of 2007), so it's easiest to keep her separate. I'll be taking out Snow and putting him in with her soon so they can bond. Hope they hit it off! I'm going to introduce them slowly.

I would like to get more DECs, which is what he is called. He is the rarest of the bunch, and they are not as easy to come by.

I really feel that Belle is a Clear Flight like Cheepy. 0=]

I know BIRDS. Lol

She's so cute.

Cheepy is asking for her!

Snow is correct, Black Eyed Clear and Lucy is a Recessuve Pied, since she has green on her tummy, and Sammy is a Normal Type 2, Yellow Face.

Hmmm, I'll have to look it up! Everyone else seems to say dominant pied... I'm hoping you're right so I can breed her with Snow to get the kinda babies I am looking for!

As I see it now Belle could be either Dominant Pied or Clearflight.

I'm still leaning towards Clear but eh... I'm not perfect


O! 0=]

Tiger, your Belle is a beauty. THe blue on her back is quite striking! I notice black stripes going through it. Am I seeing this right? She's your little tiger. lol

Thanks! On her back it's just blue, no black stripes. I think what you're seeing is shadow as the picture was taken at night and she is all fluffed up from stretching. She has black stripes on her head and shoulder/neck area though. smile

Now tell us what you think Belle's type is? Clearflight or Dominant Pied..? I'm really interested!

From what I can gather she is a dominant pied smile
