Look at the little birdie!
Hi, fellow budgie lovers! How beautiful are all these pictures!!!
We have four beautiful budgie boys, they are all very friendly as you can see in this picture!
Fry is lutino; Bender is (I believe) pied cobalt (maybe opaline too? There are so many varieties!); Nibbler-Mordisquitos is gray; and Flexo is (again, I believe), gray-wing light green. Aren't they cute?
It's amazing how each has his own personality. They are so much fun to observe, interact with, or just be around! They all get along very well, but there seem to be two "buddy pairs": Fry will always look after Bender, whereas Flexo tends to follow Nibbler around.
They never preen each other, though! Each one has his own favorite spot in the cage where he likes to scratch his head... So I am curious: Is mutual preening more of a male-female couple thing?
