Budgies (for Terratoonie)

22 comments


This is not a gardening blog, but after seeing my blog ‘1983 to now’, Terra asked if I had any Budgie pictures. So especially for you Terra, here are a few I have looked out.

These pictures were all taken about 25 years ago Terra, and after keeping budgies in an aviary I couldnt bring myself to having one in a cage. It was lovely to see them all flying reasonably freely in the aviary. We ended up with Lovebirds, Cockatiels, finches and Quails. Unfortunately had to give it all up when we took a job that entailed being away from home a lot.

:o)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Thank you, Cinders...

Wonderful budgies ... !!!

Yes, I would not cage a budgie which had previously been used to free flight in an aviary ... Fortunately my budgie "Crocus" absolutely loves his cage .. on which I fix an "extension" for his toys ..Lol....

I've added this to GoYpedia Pets in the Garden ...

.. and to my favourite blogs.. :o)))

Thanks Terra. I agree, if they have only known cage life thats fine. Crocus is a lucky budgie, I know you look after him so well.

Thank you for adding to Goypedia and your favs.

Yes we did miss them Sandra, and often think about it and sometimes wish I still had them, and yes that was me a long time ago of course.

They are Sue, not that I ever got one to talk, but several friends that had them from me were able to do it.

Aren't they lovely. Know what you mean about having them in an aviary and not a cage.

We had a lovely selection of colours, and that was one of the fascinating things, putting two birds together in a breeding box and getting all different colours from it.

Great blog, shame you had to give it up.. I have two budgies and although they create a mess and a lot of cleaning i let them out of the cage from first thing in the morning till whenever they decide to go back in, otherwise i feel guilty.. I'd love to build an aviary so maybe i might be back to ask you for some tips in the spring.
