We're back!

The budgies arrived in the new house a few days ago.  We don't have a radio set up and the house is largely quiet other than completely new strange noises (the clothes dryer, the air conditioner).They are currently staying in the mudroom.  Naturally, the budgies seem a bit aprehensive, or at least, a bit more quiet then usual.  I hope to let them sit on the front porch (pictured) a bit this weekend to see if they like the neighborhood!  However, there are squirrels and I have heard the neighbors have cats so we'll have to be careful. Any advice re: budgie porch sitting in this setting? (Extra credit: Grammar: did we use "then and than" correctly in this post?Sitting and setting?)

I think the budgies would enjoy a period of musical relaxation, before expanding their new environment into the outdoors. Easy does it!

Glad you are housed suitably. Hope the moving was as painless as possible. And if not painless, you have some good stories.
Your porch looks like a good one for sitting and being a good neighbor. Is it too open for flying budgies? Can it be partitioned?

Thank you for the update.

- The first "then" use is correct.
- Aprehensive is misspelled.
- The "then" in the same sentence should be "than".
- Sitting and setting are fine.
