Lydia and Leona have been a part of my Memphis family for a week and a half now.
My decision to bring them home with me was much like it is when I buy a piece of furniture. An immediate connection and a decision that goes over itself in my head for about 30 seconds. They were mine. I bought them at a flea market. I waited on their introduction to you because I really needed to know what was going to happen. I’ve never had birds before.
Well, as I write they are in the room next to me singing, which they start around 7 am and go all day. They make a massive mess by not eating the entire seed, instead they eat the insides and throw the shell on the ground for Momma and Bridget to clean up. When it comes to Bridget, she hissed at them the first day and swatted at their cage the 2nd, since then it’s as if they don’t exist to her. My plan is to find a beautiful antique cage for them. They need more space. If you see a great looking cage let me know! So far their singing is a true joy and their colors are so vibrant.
