Puddings & Toyboys

A blog about my beautiful budgies.


Bezukhov is a clever boy.  When they are all out, & Phineas is invariably causing mayhem in his own little way, Bezukhov discovered that he could eat seed peacefully in Phineas’s vacant cage.

Phineas usually has his eye on Cagney, so Bezukhov is free to wander in.  However, Phineas also knows that cage is his & does notice his seed is being eaten.  Fortunately, he is not too territorial, so if there are more pressing matters (Cagney escaping from his scrutiny) then he will let Bezukhov be.  Occasionally, he does go in to investigate but I think it is more a case of him not wanting to miss anything than the need to chase Bezukhov out, although Bezukhov does make a sharp exit when Phineas does enter.

Cagney has had difficulty eating seed in this surreptitious manner as Phinny is his shadow.  There was one occasion when he did shake him off long enough to sample some of Phinny’s seed.  Of course Phineas was not far behind him.

Sometimes I think that Bezukhov feels a little left out but I remind him that he has the freedom to do things that Cagney cannot, like eat Phinny’s seed in peace. 🙂

    I think the best bit is, that counts as foraging! 😀 Ptak does it too, only the other birds are all so much bigger than him, it’s kind of risky!

    Probably if put to the test, a budgie would rather have a pot of seed than a shadow.
