Preening Perry’s head

Perry still likes to have his head preened & Dalai still likes to oblige.





Just 5 days after Cagney debuted his fashionable head fluff, I found Phineas copying his style:



Head fluff

Cagney normally panics when he has a bit of fluff on his face.  The latest bit of rogue fluff made its way to the top of his head.  He did not mind it there so was happy to carry on with his activities, sporting the new look.


The scratching perch has a new client

Phineas has discovered the scratching perch. It is very popular for reaching those hard to get pin feathers on the head, face & neck.

Flustered over fluff

Moustache fluff, BEGONE!!

Cagney is such a strong, capable, confident toyboy….. isn’t he?

Well he IS….. unless he comes across a stubborn bit of fluff that will not leave his head, eye, cere or beak….  in which case he gets very flustered, flying all over the place, shaking his head & generally behaving like a girl.  (Not a pudding mind…. a girl – there is a big difference).

Eventually he manages to shake some sense into his head & gives it a good rub on a perch until the fluff moves to another equally irritating part of his head & he carries on rubbing until the offending fluff is finally flattened against the perch, never to darken a budgie head ever again.

More rollers

Atilla still has a fascination with blue, velcro rollers.

It seems that reaching out from perching on my finger was not enough, so she climbed on my head to investigate more thoroughly….
