A blog about my beautiful budgies.

This evening, I had some fresh basil to use up & at the last minute I thought I’d give some to the puddings & toyboys. Normally they would have a little nibble but that is all. I was not expecting much enthusiasm but thought it would be something for them to talk about amongst themselves tomorrow….
“It was a bit wet, wasn’t it? She could have dried it off a bit more…”
“Did you see where she pegged the damn basil? I had to get off my swing to investigate.”
Anyway, to my surprise, they all started eating it heartily! It appears they now love basil!
Atilla was chomping away & fluffing up like she was trying to eat & bathe at the same time (difficult as it was only a tiny sprig in my hand). The puddings are good at tearing leafy things & throwing it all over the floor, but she was actually eating it. Raspy also chomped away & the toyboys couldn’t get enough of it. I left it pegged up & saw that Atilla was still ploughing her way through it.
Basil has now been added to my shopping list!
