Blue newbies – first day of adventures

At long last, Perry & Lennie were out of their quarantine cage (see previous post)!  I say ‘at long last’ but of course from when their little door was opened, it only took them a few days to venture out, unlike Dalai & Thomas who took weeks to pluck up the courage to go through the open door.

Perry & Lennie had no trouble with flying.  It is always gratifying to see a budgie, who has been confined, able to stretch their wings & have a good fly & zoom around the room.  The blue newbies typically found the highest points to land, such as the curtain rail & the string lights across the window.  They also landed on the manor – the first encounter between all four of them without bars between them.  It was a bit tense to say the least.

 

Dalai was clearly uncomfortable & lunged at Perry when he got too close.  Bezukhov ran away from Perry.  To settle my nerves, I locked Bezukhov & Dalai in the manor as soon as I could.  This way, Perry & Lennie could concentrate on getting to know their wider surroundings without causing upset.
