    Budgie totally in love with baby cockatiel

    Sassy's 2 babies have been out of the cage flying around with the parents for the past 2 days. One of my male budgies (romeo) has totally fallen in love with one of the cockatiel babies. Romeo follows the baby everywhere it goes, he tries to feed the baby, he preens it and basically tries to take care of it much to sassys disgust. Sassy is definately not impressed by the behaviour of the budgie.
    It really is strange but quite sweet to watch as the cockatiel baby is wary of the budgie and can not understand what romeo is trying to do.
    I really really must try to get pictures of this tomorrow when it happens...

    Has anyone got any idea why the budgie is acting this way

    Love knows no species boundaries! A while back the sun ran an article on a budgie in love with a pidgeon, maybe Romeo wants to follow suit? hehe It sounds adorable. Hopefully Sassy doesn't get too upset with him.

    Budgies tend to have an urge to take care of any baby they see! <3 There was a budgie on Yahoo a while back who raised a brood of orphaned robins.... So cute!
