A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Wild grass x 4

Since I last reported on the delivery of May Day wild grass, there have been a further four deliveries!

One of these deliveries coincided with the Spring Bank Holiday (26th May), continuing with the theme of eating wild, seeded grass on a bank holiday.  Unbeknownst to my little grass-addicted darlings, I have frozen some in the hope of defrosting for future bank holidays, particularly those that will, in normal seasonal circumstances, be grass-free.

The first of these parcels was addressed to Dr Bezukhov (I am not sure when he got his doctorate…)   The second parcel was addressed to Cagney & was from the very generous Sharing Sausages, Ian & Marshall.  The third parcel was for ‘Reverend Phineas‘ – also from Ian & Marshall.  I was a little taken aback by Phinny’s new status.  It suggested he had become ‘holy’ which is probably why I was surprised.  However, the following parcel was also addressed to Phineas but had reverted to a simple ‘Mr’.  I can only assume the previous title of ‘Reverend’ was the result of a slip of budgie claw on a keyboard.

Nevertheless, however the parcels have been addressed, the deliveries have been thoroughly appreciated & enjoyed. 🙂

Here is Bezukhov indulging in grass served up by Tweety-Pie:

Here are Cagney & Phineas munching away:



Thank you, rosebudgie & the Sharing Sausages!

    No, I think the ‘Mr’ was the budgie claw slipping. The sausages would be so pleased to see Bezukhov looking so good if they could be bothered to watch the computer.

    Oooh, my flock want me to ask how one grows it! Is it forgiving? My lot might fall over in joy if I managed to nurse a plant to the point where I could give it to them, haha. What a wonderful surprise for your boys!

      If you have a garden I would imagine you could just let a section of the lawn grow & hope some of the grass produces seeds. I have tried to grow it indoors but with no success. It’s such a lovely, natural food for them.

    I’m very lucky that where I work is pretty much countryside, with great swathes of grass not polluted by traffic or pesticides … budgie heaven, really!
