Puddings & Toyboys

A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Pins, poop & preening

Bezukhov is getting better.  He is eating a reasonable amount each day.  His poops are looking fine.  He is chatting again with Dalai & has even engaged in the odd flirting session here & there.  He is still moulting though, so looks a bit rough & still likes to have a sleep during the day.

Dalai is also moulting.


During the last week, I have noticed Dalai preen Bezukhov’s cheek feathers.  I have only witnessed it happen about 3 times & each time was very brief but I did manage to get one little session on film:

Despite the rather brusque ending, I think Bezukhov appreciated the attention.


After the last few weeks, it gives me great pleasure to see Bezukhov tucking into his seed:


Poops are looking good too:

    So glad he is doing better, praise God! Our Robin is all covered in pin feathers too, poor little thing.

    So so so SO pleased to see Bezukhov making such good progress! And 10 out of 10 to Dalai for preening duties!
