Presenting the fourth & final budgie. I haven't decided on a name quite yet. He's one of @PoukieBear 's former breeder budgies. He just got home & was in his travel carrier when I took these. Now he's in a quarantine cage.

If anyone's within driving distance to Ottawa, I highly recommend getting some of hers as she narrows down her flock. Not only are the birds lovely, but she's just as nice in person as on screen. :) And some of the birds available have some very unusual mixes of colour mutations!

He's so pretty and that black tail feather! Is it as black as it looks in the picture?

So I've checked. Yes, his tail really is black! He's apparently a single factor dominant pied budgie with the dark factor. Some of the hens she has available now have even more mutations & there's a fallow male.

Barring very unusual circumstances, I really am done. :) I don't have an aviary & need to be mindful of air quality, for everyone's sake. I'm on the hunt for an air purifier.

"Just one more ... what's the harm? It is only a little parakeet."

"Oh no! Now I have an odd number. Better get just one more to even things out."

"Guys ... I might have a budgie addiction. Send help!"

"Or millet."

"Yeah. Just send millet."

Thank you, everyone!

I've decided to stick with his original name, though it only has 2 syllables. Winston. His name will remain Winston, as originally called by @PoukieBear

I had misgivings about renaming a happy bird, but I've also been soundly chastised about considering changing it by a family member who thought it was tantamount to 'trying to erase his identity'. :confused:

Congratulations! Winston is a good name, and I'm sure he would have loved any name you chose.
