First introductions

Posted on

So, when Pedro moved in he lived in the big new cage and Joepie stayed in the cage he came in. They are going to move in together when they are used to each other. First, let’s see how Joepie responds to him. He has been living alone for a long time – my friend had him for about 1,5 years and she bought him in a pet shop.


When Pedro started chirping, Joepie’s whole demeanor changed. He was very alert and started looking where that sound came from. It was very cute to see.



You look just like me!

Hagen Vision Cage – Review

Posted on

February 2011

Since Joepie is getting a budgie of his own, they are going to need a bigger cage.

When introducing a new budgie, the best thing to do is put him in a separate cage, next to the other(s) and slowly let them get used to each other. Before picking up the new budgie, everything has to be in order, so I’ve ordered the cage.

I have decided to get the Hagen Vision II Model M02. It has a size of  L 61 x W 38 x H 88 cm.

I have ordered it at a website I can really recommend. The prices are reasonable and they have loads of stuff for all kinds of pets.

The box arrives and it is huge!

Unfortunately I did not take pictures of the box and what was inside, but what I can say is, this cage is very easy to put together.

  • the cage includes plastic perches, those can go in the bin
  • the cage has some kind of grid for the bottom. I have no idea what the purpose of this thing is, but since the budgies have to go to the bottom to eat (that’s where the feeding bowls are) I can’t imagine that grid being very comfy to walk on for them, so that also goes in the bin

Other than that, I’m very content with this cage. It has 2×2 doors, when opened to the inside they stay horizontal so that the budgies can land/sit on them.

The feeding bowls can be taken out easily from the outside with a door on either side.

Hello lady,
Can I get some more apple?

Joepie can’t fly and this photo clearly shows his wings cross.

In the woods where I go running – I wish I could say 3 times a week, let’s not go there – sometimes when you’re lucky you can spot Fallow Deer, or Bambi’s as I call deer and everything like them.

They’re really shy, so they usually hide in between the trees or run when they see people. Except for this duo, that is. They are not faced by some hikers, runners or a girl with a camera pointed at them.

One of them was watching me from the bushes, but after a while he just walked out and passed. His friend was a bit more shy and all of a sudden jumped out and ran after him.

My friend was stretching and didn’t notice the deer standing behind him, wondering what he was doing.


I kept thinking how beautiful they are!
