    Because we're on Hokkaido and it's still snowy here cherry blossom isn't as obvious as further south. It's still quite wintery here. Have had lots of smiles from our baby today. It was his first big adventure out and we went up a mountain. I saw the volcano from the plane.

    Sapporo is a crazy city. Had a look around a fish market and I bought dried squid and scallops. The lady made me try the squid first and it was surprisingly tasty although quite chewy. I also bought dried squid which the bloke said is nice with beer 🍻 Here also is a man cooking oysters with a blow torch.

    I'm in Japan and I've met my grandson. He took one look at my big white face and burst into tears 🤣

    I’ve been resisting the urge all day to send Soapdragon at least 10 PM’s... 😜

    Cat tree

    Most cat trees, if not all, are made of untreated wood. So absolutely useless outside. I agree with DM, either clip wings, or accept the risk of them escaping from your garden. Bantams can get rather good airtime, even with clipped wings.

    Bantams always like to roost high in my experience. Not sure they’d use anything you made or bought though. They are choosy creatures!

    Travel pillow recommendations

    Thank you both 😊 Have managed to get some kind of memory foam neck pillow and some very soft and light eye mask. I'm hoping to sleep like a baby when we go. I'll report back when I've tried them out on the plane.

    I don’r Want to clip their wings. I like the idea that they can fly to get away from predators. Their little legs and comedy running style won’t save them

    Haha, I wouldn't bother - they'll ignore it and use what they want. I'd consider clipping their wings if you want them to stay in the garden.

    Cat tree

    Mr ‘I don’t want chickens’ has noticed that out bantams like to perch on anything above ground level in the garden. We have two that can fly up onto things 6ft o from a standing start and higher with a run up. He’s talking about buying a cat tree with flat ‘shelves’ for them to use in the garden to keep them off the fences and trees. They like to hide in the lower branches of the bay tree but are getting more adventurous and going higher Aren’t most commercially available cat trees for indoor use and made of sisal covered cardboard?

    How to make budgies take bath

    We have 2 budgies that are at least 10 years old and they have never had a bath either ..They are outside in an aviary so probably have a shower occasionally !!!

    ! I don't get PMs anyway so hadn't noticed - you must be very popular, DM Seriously, when my parents first had a computer Mum used to make sure that the leads from plug to the computer were as straight as possible as she thought messages/e mails would get stuck (I suppose a bit like a hosepipe with a kink in it!) so maybe there was a bent lead along the line somewhere!

    I had noticed that I wasn't getting notifications for PMs, probably for the last few days. I am used to not getting anything for regular posts. Suddenly I have just had a stream of them through - reckon that someone has fed some quids into the leccy meter attached to the server room!
  25. Welcome to the forum We have two budgies who never bathe either, I wouldn't worry too much about it
  26. We have two budgies. Neither bath and both are really healthy. They get sprayed occasionally when they have a shrieking competition and get too loud. They both hate water. They have deep sand on the floor of the cage and don’t dustbath either. Personally I wouldn’t worry
  27. I tried keeping a bath in my budgies' cage. In a shallow plastic box filled with water, I left some of their favorite leaves. But they do not sit or splash in it. They only either drink water from it or eat leaves, standing on its edges. How do I make them go inside the water?
