Ny kone / New wife
Var der lige et par fugle, der blev overraskede! Den gamle, fordi der pludselig sad en fremmed fugl i buret, og den nye, fordi den pludselig var et helt nyt og ukendt sted.
Nysgerrigheden vandt dog imponerende hurtigt, og jeg tænker, at den nye fugl er af den skrappe slags. Normalt bruger en ny undulat et par dage med at sidde og stirre skræmt ud i luften, mens den har tyndskid af bare skræk, men ikke den unge dame her. Næh nej. 10 minutter, så havde hun fundet maden og spiste lystigt.
Since I don't trust budgerigars to have a very long memory - but they do feel very lonely very quickly! - I visited the pet-store going back from work yesterday, in order to buy a new little wife for my male bird.
What a surprise-party! The old one was very surprised over the new, strange bird suddenly sitting in his cage, and the new one was very surprised, being in a new, unknown place.
Curiosity got the better of them, though, and I think the new bird is a tough lady. Usually new budgerigars sit paralyzed for 1-2 days, having diarrhea just because of the utter terror, but not this young lady. Oh no, sir! All she needed was 10 minutes for finding some food, and then she was happily eating.
Nu skal jeg bare finde et navn til hende...... Måske Yoda, hvis det altså ikke var et drengenavn. Hun fandt nemlig ud af, hvor lågen i buret var, og sad så og stirrede intenst på den i meget lang tid. Men den åbnede sig ikke......
For celebration of this very big event, they had parsley. YUM! They ate heartily, even together most of the time. So far it seems like it's going to work out with these two, but we'll se, I guess. So far, no-one lost any heads or limbs!
I just need to find her a name...... Maybe Yoda, if it just wasn't a boy's name. Very fast, she discovered the door to the cage, and stared intensly at it for a long time. But it didn't open......
