It's been awhile since I've had a flock thread.
We've been doing as well as can be expected, life's crazy busy but this lot is so good at adjusting as needed.
Excuse any bad quality photos, different looking phone which has been determined as too scary to be close to them :eatpeople:
Also excuse the empty looking cage, need to go get more leaves.
Sunbeam loves using her veggies to freshen up.

This looks like some healthy budgies enjoying veggies... truth is they're hunting for millet :shy::angelic:

So, I had to finally admit today that Sunbeam just can't have 99% of bowls :bored:
For those wanting a recap, she has a bad habit of dumping/kicking food out of bowls and unhooking bowls to dropped them on the floor. Not a safe thing when your friend spends a lot of time on the cage floor. So a little while ago I bought lockable bowls to see if they worked, they work great... as a nest. Today was the second day I went to feed them and she was sitting in the bowl (like nesting sitting, not eating), I removed it and am hoping she doesn't lay an egg :fingerscrossed: Now she's just getting food in the veggie bowl in the picture above.

Thank you :heart: I am thinking you mean Emelia? She is a Sky blue Opaline :)

A quick cage shuffle just in case, can anyone remind me of signs of egg laying? I am super paranoid atm, it's been years since I've had to deal with eggs. I could very well be overreacting and there won't be an egg, but I want to be aware.

Also I know it's unlikely but is there a solution to shredding the cage liner paper? I hate cleaning the grate in this cage but I cant have the paper on top because Sunebeam rips it all up :sour:

Finally some proper cage furnishing :D

Also baths were practically DEMANDED even though it's chilly... no one could resist this lot :angelic:
Let's go through the complexity of the chaos that is bath time here.
Emelia. Favourite bath method is getting absolutely drenched by me and my spray bottle.

Winston. Practically any method that ends in complete saturation is acceptable, though prefers wet leaves + spray bottle combo.

Snowflake + Obsidian. They have the same. Fresh clean bowl of water with leave just dangling in, water sprays for added effect if possible :p

Her crazy-ness Sunbeam ONLY baths by wet leaves acrobatics, whether that is branches of leaves or her veggies.

LJ's not up for any of this, he just like licking wet leaves:xflove:

Breakfast at our house this morning, have a guess which bowl/pile belongs to who (not only for the birdies ;))

So I thought I was being overly paranoid about Sunbeam and a possible egg, but I dont think she is finished :( She's being super nesty and had large watery poos yesterday, so I moved the cage. I wasn't able to move it very far and I worry it's actually a worse spot as its fairly dark under the platform perch now.

She's OK in this picture, she got up for breakfast and moved around fine, not too good for her feet tho.

After the cage move this is her new nesty spot currently, I might have to take it out.
