Happy 1st Adoption-day, Perry & Lennie!

It was one year ago on this day that I brought home these two beautiful, blue birds.  They were both around 8 weeks old & most likely from the same breeder.  We had not long lost our dear friend Phineas, so their arrival was very welcome.

Over the last year, their personalities have emerged & they are quite different.

Perry is pretty laid back & chilled out.  He does not mind my presence & will sit on my finger/hand & readily take food from me.  He is liked by both Bezukhov & Dalai.

Lennie seems immature next to Perry, despite being the same age.  He seems to be permanently worried that he is missing something important, so is always on the lookout for what is going on.  He gets on well with his cage-mate Perry but this may be because Perry is particularly easy-going!  Unfortunately, Lennie still needs to learn some social skills & whilst persistent pursuing of Dalai will produce some results (a kiss & a flirt), he is not always tolerated.  He is wary of me but loves millet so will force himself to eat a bobble from my hand!

Here are the gorgeous boys:

Happy adoption-day, my blue rascals!

We love you lots!

Happy 1st Adoption-day, Dalai!!!

Has it really only been one year since Dalai joined us?

Dalai came into our home on the 14th March 2016.  He was, we believe, around 5 months old at the time, putting his birthday (or hatchday) at sometime in October.  As we do not know the exact date that he came into this world, we celebrate the date he came into our lives.

I feel like Dalai has been here for much longer than one year.  I guess it is partly because there have been so many changes.  Dalai is independent & strong-minded & has coped with all that has happened, from initially being a newbie himself, losing his friend Phineas, dealing with Bezukhov when he was sick, & now having two new blue boys on the block.

Remembering Phineas on his adoption day

Phineas came into our home on this day, 4 years ago.  

I would like to share a video with you of him regurgitating to my thumb.  It was also during his brief quick, side-step phase.  Some people go, “Urgh”, at the thought of regurgitated food, but I always appreciated what he offered me, & I always thanked him.

Missing you, our little man.

Always in our thoughts.
