So recently, little man Jethro celebrated his 12th birthday and joined his new foster home, with Charlie joining him. Their new foster mummy is a nice lady called Fiona. She got Charlie eating corn and talking to the other birdies.
We found out that while Charlie was healthy, Jethro had mites and a condition known as bumblefoot. I can't believe we did not pick up on how sick the poor old man was!
we recently took in my sister's elderly budgie, Viktor. He's a gorgeous boy, very loving and sweet and placid like Sonny as baby. He's disabled (can't tell left from right or up from down, has injuries he's had since he was a baby and is dumb) and very old but we adore him anyway.
