Busby Warms His Feathers!!

February 20th, 2013
Busby Warms His Feathers!!

Well as it was such a lovely day yesterday Busby wanted to take himself outside into the garden to get some sunshine on his feathers, considering it was frosty in the morning I was very shocked to see how warm it was, so the kids all went outside to play in the garden as it was half term and I went to do a bit of gardening and after Busby had finished his warm cereal I took Busby out to catch some sunshine, he loves nothing more than to have the sun on his feathers.

He loves to either sit on his Java tree and watch the kids, or on the back of one of our patio chairs and it was the Java tree today.

Hoping it carry’s on and look forward to the coming summer for lots of fun in the sun! x

Busby Lets Himself Out!

Busby Lets Himself Out!

Well after being allowed a lay in as little one slept in I got up feeling good I came downstairs and headed for the kitchen to make a cuppa and was welcomed with a ‘Hello’ coming from the floor!

Now Busby is his own little mind and chooses when he is out only time he is locked in his cage is when it’s bed time so I know he is safe and not being naughty!  How wrong was I!

He manages to get out of the bottom of the cage he slides the grill and tray open bit by bit until it’s big enough for him to slip out of!

Well he had a right fun time and totally enjoyed himself by the looks of it,  he had taken a dislike to our wicker washing basket and thought he would rearrange it!




As you can see he is really pleased with himself,  he then shouted “where’s my dinner” and started chasing my feet around!

Got to love them eh!

Busby Being Helpful

Busby Being Helpful

Well as the weather was so nice outside yesterday I thought it would be a good time to go outside and do some weeding! Now when I say some, the whole garden has gone way overgrown after all the rain we have had.

So Busby came out to keep me company while I was weeding he loves nothing more than to sit and watch me busy out in the garden he will sit anywhere I put him he favourite spots are on the back of one of our patio chairs or he likes to sit on the Java tree we have in the garden.

I took him over to see our Blue Fronted Amazons Kerry and Jerry he was really interested in them, Only Jerry was out as Kerry was in her nest box sitting tight on some eggs which should hatch any time soon.

Here are some photos of him enjoying his time out in the garden.

Busby Play’s Fireman!

Busby Play's Fireman!

Busby is such a little dude, he is a little grey with a MASSIVE personality he knows his own mind, he will not sit on the play stand he like to jump off and sit on his chosen spot which is the stair gate between our living room and dining room!! He will sit there happily until he fancies a stroll about or some food which he will then use his fireman skills to get down quickly as you can see below.

We have been learning some tricks too which I will video and blog about.

We all love Busby! x

Sad News And Busby Get’s His Forever Home

Sad News And Busby Get's His Forever Home

Busby has been with us now since March and Jen his owner was moving and having to go to work full time and she wanted Busby to be somewhere around people and not on his own so she contacted us, she was so upset when she handed him over and I asked her was she doing the right thing, he is such a lovely bird she had done so much to bring him round to a cuddly tame little grey, it was left that she would get herself moved and then let me know if she wanted him back as she missed him so much!!

The last contact I had with Jen was on the 22nd March when she emailed me in reply to me telling her how much Busby loved everyone and even the children! I emailed her back with some photos of Busby enjoying the sunshine outside in the garden but never heard anything back and thought she must be busy with moving.

Sadly I had a call from Jens Son who told me Jen had sadly passed away in Early April very suddenly which left all her family really shocked as she was quite well when I met her, I was very shocked also and i told her i would look after Busby and that is what I will do.

Jen was laid to rest on the 19th April 2012 and my thoughts are still with her family, she was such a lovely lady and when I met her she made a massive impression on me, she was such a strong woman and I will never forget her – RIP Jen i will look after your little man and keep his blog updated for you to see x

So Busby’s new forever home is right here with us and he fits in great as you can see below –
