Line up! LOL.

I think that's just their plan for fire season. If they tried turning off in the summer, I imagine everyone would storm their castle with pitchforks and torches! At least that's what would happen here.

I figured fires would be more likely in summer - not autumn. You know... blistering heat and stuff?

yeah, the heat is bad, but the wind's are what spreads the stuff.

Well, power went back on a few hours ago but it's probably gonna go off AGAIN on the 26th. I mean, there's making a point and then there's excessive assholery.

But anyway... here's a couple belated cute budgie pics:

LOL. I get that look from the Coon-ys whenever I approach them with the phone. I don't know how they know it's a camera, but they apparently do.

White birb is very pretty.

Blue and white birb fledged the nest today. He was out with Mama and Papa, and looking VERY pretty :D

Day 30 - Fledge! https://www.deviantart.com/sanjouin...edged-818110728

Blue and white birb fledged and was exploring outside the nest box. And he's still so fluffy and cute!

He is just so pretty. Isn't it odd that he doesn't look like either of his parents?

He actually looks like his dad. Both are blue and white, and both have violet blue feathers.

Edit: Here are the pics I took during and just after the latest blackout:

Oh, look! He's saying, "I can perch"!!!!

They just grow up too fast. It's not fair. I feel like I barely get to enjoy them and suddenly they are big birbies.

Are they noticing the power outages? I have cats and the don't like it when the power goes out. Their hearing is very sensitive and they can hear the power inside the walls. I guess they habituate to it the way you do a fan running. But when the power goes out they both get a little spooked for a minute.

The outage affected Mama and Papa Budgie... the same way outages tend to affect humans. They were getting 'busy' and Mama laid an egg. Gotta separate them soon, it seems, or find some other way to keep them from reproducing so much during the cold months. We now have thirteen budgies - one of which we bought as a mate for Sunny D. Will hafta upload the pics soon before PG&E decides to jiggle the switch again.

Edit: OMIGOSH! When did I become a Mad Poster? Awesome!

Yup. You gotta either separate them or give them some big puzzles to put together to occupy their time, cause it seems like they just have the one hobby. :3

Yup. We already got two eggs. We might need to give Mama Budgie some full-spectrum light treatment, or at least remove Papa and not give her as much food.We'll also need to remove the nest box pretty soon, so she can replenish herself. Here's some pics:

Oh, my word. You are going to be overrun with birbies!

The three in the second clutch are beautiful. Do they have names yet?

They have names: Henley, Snappy, and Charlie. Might take some pics of them when they're eight weeks old. Right now they are in with their big siblings, and I hope they get along. We tried putting leg bands on them, but they weren't having any of that nonsense.

lol. that's what comes from being raised by people as well as their parents. They are people, too. You don't have bands around your legs. Why should they?

Love the names.

Aww thanks! Henley was the name of my budgie, as well as a budgie my mom adopted when she was a kid. Her Henley was blue and white, but had more blue. My first Henley was green and yellow.

Edit: https://www.deviantart.com/sanjouin...-Four-819366961

Three eggs, and yes, they would've been four if someone hadn't destroyed one of them. I doubt it was Mama Budgie, but who knows? She hasn't hurt the others, and she's setting, so yeah, here's hoping everything will be alright for the third clutch and brood. Gonna monitor the babies, and I hope one of them will be an albino. Those birbs look STUNNING!

Edit: Four eggs - https://www.deviantart.com/sanjouin...-Eggs-819588858

Here's hoping we will get a lutino or albino in the bunch!

Lemon Skittle has decided to lay again. She's got one egg, and she's all broody and protective over it, acting just like a broody hen, it's hilarious when she does the "I'm gonna mess you up" face because she's so tiny! Little Boy Blue sits on top of the nest box and sings and sings and sings. Sometimes she tells him to come in and visit her, but mostly he is Not Allowed in Her Nest. They are so funny.

Son is ecstatic. Here's hoping all goes well. Another egg or two wouldn't go amiss, but one healthy chick would be quite satisfactory, too.

(They are, if it was unclear from their names, a yellow female and a blue male budgie. Skittle is half-wild, as she wasn't handled before we got her, and my son picked her out specifically as a female to be his male's mate. Little was tamed, but gets infected by Skittle's panic now. I have no pictures because even standing two feet from the nest and shining a light in to see the egg gets here all bothered, and I can't get a good picture inside the dark nest.)

Edit: Today, the 7th, there are three eggs in the box. Yesterday we caught Little feeding Skittle at the door of the nest box. They're adorable. @jdacapo are you still raising budgies at all?

Yes I am So far, we got fifteen home-bred babies and Sunny D, our lutino from the first brood, has laid her first egg. Mama Budgie is gonna be a Gramma Budgie :D

Also, our lovebirds have another clutch of eggs. Here's hoping we can socialize those babies better than the previous brood.
