Great !!..a 13 year old budgie !!
« on: 19/07/2007 20:40:18 »
Oh for heavens sake !!

Wifey has agreed to look after a 13 year old budgerigar !!..apparently they only live for about six years !!

With my lot....it's going to be well deceased by the time the owner comes back in ten days !!

Oh great !!..it's here already !!!

Any tips for making sure the thing  stays alive for the next ten days ?

Any tips (humorous preferred) for how to convince the owner that is it still alive should it decide to do the back crawl on the cage floor ?

Good idea , that way when it dies you can take the pic along to the pet shop with you. Just like the previous two people who were asked to look after it did . ;D

When his budgie died , Mr Baker was very distressed. He went to the parish priest and said, "Father, will you do a funeral for my budgie?"
"No way" said the priest. "It's a daft idea. Why don't you try the church down the road?"
"All right ," said Baker. "By the way, do think a 1,000 for his church fund would be a suitable gesture of gratitude?"
"Wait a minute" said the priest. "Why didn't you mention that the budgie was a Catholic?"

Q: What do you give a sick budgie?
A: Tweetment

Q: What do you get when you cross a Budgie with a Piranha?
A: A bird that talks your ear off!!

A mummy budgie, daddy budgie and their baby were getting ready to
migrate. The mother budgie said, "My instincts tell me to go north."
The daddy budgie said, "My instincts tell me to go south."
The baby budgie said,"My end stinks too, but it doesn't tell me where to go!"
