Blue seed?

Phineas still regurgitates to my finger, or thumb, a lot.  Many times a day, every day.

Recently he made some changes & regurgitated blue seed:

“What’s going on here?”, I wondered!

A little investigation revealed he had been chewing on the blue munch ball of the chewy toy arrangement on top of the Manor.

With inedible things, I often tell them to chew & spit but clearly Phinny had not been listening to me & had been ingesting instead of spitting it out.  He moved onto the red munch ball after that so you can imagine how colourful his regurgitated seed looked then. 🙂

Dodgy bell

When cleaning Atilla’s purple lantern mirror & bell the other day, I noticed the bell had some marks, possibly the beginnings of rust.  To be safe, I took the clapperless bell off & threw it away. 

The mirror looked a bit lost without anything dangling from it so I had to add something……. 

Enter, a munch ball!

Atilla & the toyboys did not seem to notice the shiny dangly thing was now brown & chewy.  Or rather, they did notice, but were not that concerned.  Either way, the new-style lantern mirror has been accepted by them & is now part of the Manor furniture.

Thanks go to the magnificent Mikko for raising awareness of the dangers of heavy metal poisoning in budgies: http://highfourbirdtraining.webs.com/losingyou.htm.
