A blog about my beautiful budgies.
Bedtime barney :(
5 February 2011Posted by on
Normally both Puddings & Toyboys are quite well-behaved come bedtime. However, tonight there was an incident….
They were covered up but I was watching the TV (on mute so as not to disturb them!) & there seemed to be a bit of faffing about. I didn’t take much notice but then there was a commotion…. Raspy was on the floor & as she climbed up the side of the cage, Cagney was aggressively pecking at her & caught her head at one point. She stayed where she was as she could not move up as Cagney was preventing her. As she moved to the side he jabbed at her again. It seemed the only way was down. I poked two lollipop sticks through the bars to try & contain Cagney to allow Raspy to get up to a perch. She finally got to the swinging perch in the corner & Bezuky sat beside her & very sweetly tried to preen her head but she was a bit too stressed to appreciate it….
A bit later, with the TV off & lights low, I checked on them… Only Atilla & Cagney were in the loft area. Raspy & Bezuky were still on the swinging perch. Then a little later, Bezukhov moved to a swing in the loft area, leaving Raspy on her own in the corner (still on the swinging perch) & preening. It’s possible she may stay there all night to avoid another altercation with Cagney…
