Meet Sunny

Whew, it has been a while since we’ve blogged here at the perch!  Busy schedules, a planned move to the city and new pets have all played a part in the absence, but we just had to take some time to share the exciting news.  We have added a new budgie to our flock named Sunny!  This little bird is full of fun and adventure, and we named her Sunny because she has a “sunny” disposition (you’ll see).

Here she is when we first got her…

As you can see, she looked a little rough!  Notice how she sits low on her legs and doesn’t stand on a perch properly?  We adopted Sunny, and our avian vet thinks that she probably had a birth defect in her legs that was never taken care of when she was a young chick.  She may have also been picked on by other birds because her feathers looked so rough and misaligned.

Fast forward a few months, and look at her now!

Her feathers are looking much better, and she has a blast exploring things in her cage or flying around the bird room.  She has also become a really strong climber, has the cutest birdie swagger when she is walking along, and loves to hang upside down!

Stay tuned to our YouTube channel for upcoming videos featuring Sunny and the rest of our flock!
