Why only the GREEN cup?

Why only the GREEN cup? - 08/04/07 12:22 PM

So this morning i decided to spoil my birds since i am not working on the weekend. I gave them breakfast of half of a boiled egg, green grapes, pellets sprinkled over that and a slice of cucumber. They went NUTS!!!

a little bit later i realized they needed a bath. Since i didn't have any romaine, i decided to get out the "green cup". I have green, turquoise and purple. I knew they would remember the green cup even though it had been a couple of months. So i filled it with distilled water and put it in the cage. In one second Peri was on his way over. Peri likes to play the game in the green cup - he gets his face wet, splatters water on the bars, then eats the droplets off of the bars. But this is Bleu's serious bath tub. Bleu kicked him off and took a bath.

But why only the GREEN cup? It is like the color of the parakeet's wings in the top left corner of this forum...see him with the grapes? Why do they only do these things in THAT cup? Why not turquoise or purple?

That is intresting... So how do they act with the turquoise and purple cups?

Just a theory... But budgies pick their mates on colour, the more pretty and colourfull ones been the prefrence obv. So maybe they think the colour of it is more pretty.

Maybe its just their personality :P Peri's game sounds hilarious though.

They will eat or drink out of the other colored cups. If i have them up higher than ground level they will pull them down, probably competition...except Bleu will bathe in the green cup no matter where it is. Peri seems like he doesn't know how to take a bath. He will just kind of sit in the water but not do anything LOL so i think his game is a way that he can not be so jealous of all the fun Bleu is having.

Hubby has a theory like yours. He thinks the flourescence of the color attracts them to it.
