Bluebelle (or Belle for short) isn't quite the charmer Buddy is. She is temperamental and she bites. We are having to work with her a little more each day, and I have to say she is getting more tame, but I don't think she will ever be as easy going as her cage mate. I have read that female birds are pretty testy most of the time. I guess even parakeets can have hormone issues.
Buddy is so relaxed that one day we were able to put him on Ci Ci's back for a few seconds before the cat got scared and ran away. Between the new birds and the fish Abbey brought home as a party favor, Ci Ci keeps pretty busy plotting and planning her instinctual obligatory investigations. Tonight we perched Buddy on a bowl of water and he gave himself a little shower of sorts. I think he might get some satisfaction from teasing the cat with his feathery habits.
