Sunbeam's favourite toy, unfortunately it can be a bit of a nesting risk but as long as I supervise and remove at the right time we're all good :)

I wish my budgie boys would go after a toy with that much gusto! It might take their minds off their hormones!

I love seeing your flock so much, they are all so beautiful and you do a great job of showing their personalities. I can’t believe how I under appreciated budgies for years.

Am I wrong to think they benefit a lot from being in a flock instead of ‘just’ two budgies? I sometimes feel bad mine are by themselves, they hang out with the lovebirds almost every day but have to be seperate if we are not there. They do seem happy but take every chance to immediately go with the lovebirds.

I am no expert in budgie behaviour, but I am sure it's a different atmosphere.
I've never really actually owned just two budgies so I don't have much to compare to. I only had two for a short period years ago and I certainly wasn't aware or observant to their behaviour back then.
If you search some flock threads by @Ripshod he has some really interesting insights to flock living.
I am sure you're two are fine with their little mismatch flock, they have a budgie companion and that's a big plus to me!

I've honestly not seen many budgies as determined as Miss Sunbeam! Once she has a toy she likes it's nonstop. This is the third time I've bought this toy, goes the same way each time! Also the reason I wont buy these kind of toys in small, always medium or bigger!

Yes, they do, thank you! I’ll read them later. I’ve been thinking about the budgie that started this & understand why he’s white-blue based. His blue feathers are where Marzipan’s are. It’s like there’s a yellow wash where the white should be. I look forward to further reading about this stunning mutation. :)

What I think I am gathering is they are basically "Parblue" like in lovebirds.
I would love to understand colour genetics properly but it's alot of info to store in my brain :dead:

This is why I supplement toys with handmade ones and lots of leaves.
This medium sized toy is on its fifth day in the cage.

I am quite frustrated right now.
Sunbeam is only a little broody at the moment.
But I wanted to ask, how many of you think that I should remove Winston (and any other Male budgie) if Sunbeam was to act nesty again or even lay an egg?
I don't feel that it is right, to break a bond because I don't want to deal with eggs or accidentally ended up with an egg.

Welcome to the world of random thoughts in my head...
