A blog about my beautiful budgies.
End of British summer time
31 October 2011Posted by on
To make sure my little darlings are not cold of a night, I have now changed their summer bedtime cover for a winter one. It is a new cover, bought especially for them & is an inoffensive beige colour (previous experience says that red is a no-no).
Last night was the first time I put it on. Raspy, Bezukhov & Cagney did not bat an eyelid, but Atilla was on the alert. This was something new & it had to be personally approved! Atilla was soon to be found in the corner of the manor, chewing at it through the bars. I am pleased to say that it passed the test!
Atilla is often the one to test out new things first. I am sure she feels this is one of her duties as Flock Boss.
Today, the iodine block fell off its plastic holder. (It gave us all a scare as it fell to the floor with quite a thud!) Fortunately, I had recently bought a replacement one so put the new one in. Who was first to investigate? Yes, Atilla. The iodine block passed the test too!
This evening, I am wearing my new pyjamas. They were bought online & described as “funky“. Basically, they are very bright & bold! I put a plain cardigan over the top so as not to shock the puddings & toyboys. They did all go quiet though….. However, Atilla, being the leader, was the first to jump on my sleeve & have a little tentative nibble of my funky pyjamas. I do not think they have been fully approved yet, so testing is still in progress!
