    Why i love budgies, so many brilliant color variations!

    I'm a sucker for the ones with blue though lol.

    I am hoping for a long and wonderful life with these two.

    They are absolutely amazing creatures budgies are! I might need to visit a different section for this question but I wonder what’s the best cage for a pair? Though probably subjective I’d like some opinions.

    They use every bit of this. Normally I donít have the ceramic dish on the floor but it has baby spider plants in it and I gave them to the kids to chew up. Lol

    That is a super neat cage!!! Here is a link for you to review, of both safe and toxic plants birds can or should never eat.

    http://budgieplace.com/plants.html

    Generally, the female is the only one whose cere changes color, and that happens when hormones kick in at about 9-12 months for a new baby, and then usually spring and fall when they are adults. That cere goes from the light ivory or tannish color to a brownish crusty looking cere. It could be the way the camera is shooting the pics is the reason why I see the color change.

    Re: My 2 Budgies thread

    Thanks love, thatís an awesome list. I had found that and saved it when I was researching. I think it would be fun for them to have some foliage in their cage. Was thinking about putting one of my wandering Jew plants in a corner in the back. But I would need to move a bottom perch first.

    The color changes I see are a lightening and darkening of the existing colors of their Ceres. I wonder if itís a blood pressure thing or body temperature fluctuations.

    I have mine in a Prevue Hendrix cage with an open play top but am switching them to a rectangular flight cage 30" across and 18" in the back. I cannot wait!
