Gekke Gerrit came to me in my house 7 years ago when one of my two
budgerigars died. Because Maatje (one of the budgerigars) always was used to
have company and the breeding time of the budgerigars was expired, I was already
really happy with the two year old Gerrit, which has lived on various
residences. Gerrit has been hand maken tame but also lame. This with an unknown
cause, so what?
Since the day that Gerrit joined Maatje and me, the contact between the
budgerigar was very good. They caress eachother, every morning they billed
together and they walked through the house. If Gerrit sung his best song, Maatje
sung with him. They did everything together. Unfortunately Maatje has flew to
the budgerigarsheaven the 27th of April (I was glad that he did that, how sad
already, alone). His pretty nice life with Gerrit has ended after 9 healthy
years. This beautifull picture of my "airplane" witnesses of the friendship
between a budgerigar and a cockatiel.
Greetings, Hermien Gorlitz
