Puddings & Toyboys

A blog about my beautiful budgies.

When is a knot not a knot?

Recently I asked myself a searching question:

When is a knot not a knot?

Fortunately, the toyboys helped me come to an answer:

When it is untied.

Those clever boys like chewing on pieces of string.  There is a piece of string holding up their willow perch.  I noticed Cagney & Bezukhov had untied it.   Fortunately I noticed it before the silly boys jumped on the unstable perch.


Now I am always checking that the knot is still knotted.

    It could be very useful to have a budgie who can untie knots – some of them are hellishly difficult. Keep practising, Cagney & Bezukhov!

    Clever boys.. 😉
    Mine have little leather ties with beads on, they untie them and they drop to the bottom of the cage. 🙂

      We also have leather with beads on. This seems to be more sturdy than the paper rope with beads on that they chew through & then get scared at the sound of the beads clattering on the floor!

    Brilliant, budgie are much cleverer than I ever realised before getting ours. ours have a thick piece of cotton rope and have gradually gnawed right through it!
