    Arrow My Dad's Budgies

    These are my dad's two budgies...just thought I'd show a photo!!

    I'm still trying to convince him though that budgies NEED fresh fruit and vegetables. I've printed off the nutrition sheet off here, and copied some of the tips on how to get birds to eat fresh foods as well. Ugh...we'll have to see if he is listening to me...

    He has them out ALL the time...I'm trying to get him to keep them in side for a few hours a day, so at least then they might at least nibble at the fruit and vegetables.

    We'll see if I can change his ways...he needs to put them on a better diet, get better perches for them, and give them "cage time" just so they will learn to eat fruit and vegetables as why he is keeping them out they aren't even looking at it. Also I don't like the idea of them being out without supervision especially as one of them got his head stuck in the light fittings.

    I'm thinking about going to his house and trying to help him to train them. I'm worried...I know their not mine but still!!

    He got them in 2003 I think...got them just after I got Ollie...well he got Sapphire...then got Steal(sp)...Sapphire is the boy and Steal(sp) is the girl.

    Well here are the photos:

    Sapphire (23-12-2003)

    Steal and Sapphire (23-12-2003)

    Steal and Sapphire (03-02-2004)

    Sorry I don't have any recenter photos.

    I think my dad does care about them a bit...as he has started putting vitamins in their food...I told him to do this until he'd taught them how to eat fruit and vegetables...


    These are just photos took in January 2004...they are of Sapphire, Steal, Summer and 3 others that were given to someone else...they got them from a breeder you see so they were all at my dads house for a while. Plus you can see my dads cage and the EVIL light fittings.

    As soon as I can convince him to make them eat a better diet I'll be happier.

    lol my dad can never catch them...it shows how much excercise they get though, they are half the size of my two.
