Puddings & Toyboys

A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Too hot to blog

Cagney says it is too hot to blog.

I am inclined to agree with him. 

He does not help matters though, & does still insist on some boogie-woogie-ing with Atilla.  This makes him extra hot. 

I have been spraying water on them to cool them down during this mini UK heatwave.

Bangs & boogie-woogie

The last couple of evenings have been hectic.  I feel I know what it must be like to run a creche. 

The good news is that puddings & toyboys have not been bothered by any loud bangs from fireworks.

The bad news is that the toyboys are naughty boys!  Cagney is obviously the most naughty, but Bezukhov has not been far behind.  Cagney has been relentlessly pursuing Raspy for a kiss & has even jumped on her back (how disrespectful!)  Raspy is NOT succumbing to his “charms”. 

Last night Raspy was in & out the Ferplast & I was up & down opening & closing the Ferplast cage door, either to lock her in or let her out when she wanted to stretch her wings.  Surprisingly, for most of her time in the Ferplast, Bezukhov kept her company. Bezukhov was pestering Raspy more than usual, but that’s allowed as he is her boyfriend but she still “squiggled” at him to get out of her face… off her tail… & off her back….

Cagney appeared a little lonely not having his mate to run around with, but it was his own fault for not leaving Raspy alone!  He still gave attention to Atilla but even there he was naughty, force-feeding her regurgitated seed that landed up all down her face, neck & back.  He’s been such a handful!

Several times, yesterday evening, Bezukhov & Raspy boogie-woogied in the comfort & relative privacy of the locked Ferplast.  That incensed Cagney as he desperately wanted to join in.  At one point, when Cagney was chasing Raspy around the Manor, I managed to grab him & lock him in the Ferplast on his own.  There was a collective sigh of relief in the Manor.  I did not have the heart to lock him up for long though, as he was pacing/flying & squarking like mad.  As soon as I let him loose again, he made a beeline for Raspy.

The end result was bedtime in separate cages: Atilla & Cagney in the Manor & Raspy & Bezukhov tucked up in the Ferplast.


Synchronised boogie-woogie-ing

If there were medals awarded for Best Synchronised Budgie Boogie-Woogie-ing, the Puddings & Toyboys would win hands-down…. or rather wings-down.

Usually it is Cagney & Atilla who start off proceedings.  There will be a bit of faffing about & Atilla will shake Cagney off her back several times but that never deters him.  When they get going, Bezukhov & Raspy get amorous too.  The noise levels at this time go through the roof! 

The best-case scenario is for Bezukhov & Raspy to finish first, at which point, Bezuky may go over & sit on top of the Manor, above Cagney & Atilla & scrutinise their progress.

The worst-case scenario is if Cagney & Atilla finish first & then it is highly likely that Cagney will want to move onto Raspy (with no questions or discussion or please or excuse me).  This inevitably results in a fight between Cagney & Bezukhov.  In fact, it’s the only time they do fight so you can imagine me willing Bezuky & Raspy to finish The Act first!
