Puddings & Toyboys

A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Tatty Toyboys

The moult is still going on.

Feather loss is slowing down but tatty-factor has increased considerably.  Both toyboys have very tatty bellies that look uneven & clumpy.  Their faces look rough with feather loss under their eyes & around their beak.  They have been quite grumpy & spend most of their time either snoozing or preening.

I have offered mistings but it seems that either Cagney will choose to get wet, or Bezukhov will – not both at the same session!

    Tatty perhaps, but extremely handsome (and not a patch for tattiness on the Late Great Saucy Face!) …

    Don’t they like an other way of showering maybe?

      I have tried them with baths but they just drink the water. 🙂 I will try again though. One of these days they may surprise me. 🙂

        I don’t know if you have tried it yet, but one of my budgies, who doesn’t bath or shower, loves to rub up against wet carrot tops. I hang a whole bunch on the cage and she goes wild! It’s really cute to watch.
        You can see her do it here, http://youtu.be/Dzf1h_H7vFw

          Thanks for the tip! I usually lay leaves flat across the landing platform & Cagney tunnels through & Bezukhov sort of balances on top. I will try hanging them up though & see what they do. What a cute little budgie in your video! She really had a fun time with those carrot tops. 🙂
