The following underlined parts are the places where I don't understand. 
‘Well, you’ll be happy then,’ said Dinah. ‘I suppose that means you’ll be keeping a couple of badgers for pets before we know where we are! Ugh!’
‘Badgers are very nice animals,’ began Philip. ‘Clean and most particular in their habits, and . . .’
Lucy-Ann gave a little squeal of laughter. ‘Oh dear—they don’t sound a bit like you then,Philip!

Jack was as mad as ever about birds. So long as he could do bird-watching of some kind he was
happy. Mrs. Cunningham laughed at him.

‘You and your birds, Jack, and Philip and his badgers! I can’t tell you anything about the birds
there—the same ones as usual, I suppose. Now—what about these trunks? We’ll unpack the lot;
take the boys’ trunks upstairs, and leave the girls’ to take with us to Little Brockleton—they are not
quite so hard-used as yours!’

‘Can’t think why people ever make a fuss about packing or unpacking,’ said Jack. ‘Kiki, take
your head out of my pocket. What’s this sudden craze for toffees? Do you want to get your beak
stuck so that you can’t talk?’

‘Oh no he won’t,’ said Philip, at once. ‘Small boys have to toe the line with us, don’t they, Jack?We get enough of them and their fatheadedness at school—we know how to deal with them all right.’
 
‘Yes—you’ve got a bit muddled, old thing,’ said Jack, with a laugh. Kiki flew to his shoulder,and began to pull at Jack’s ear lovingly. Then, as she heard the sound of the gong suddenly booming out, she gave a loud screech and flew into the dining-room. She knew what that sound meant!

‘There’s the next-door cat,’ said Dinah. ‘Come to see what all the fuss is about, I expect! Hang on to Kiki, Jack.’
‘Oh, she’ll bark like a dog if the cat comes any nearer,’ said Jack. ‘Come on—let’s see what the gardener has got in the greenhouse.’

‘That’s an idiotic thing to call her,’ said Dinah. ‘Just as we’re expecting Bill! She’ll screech out “Silly-Billy” to him now, I bet you she will!’       ( call her,  She'll,     she will)  refers to the Kiki?

‘No, Kiki, stop it. Look, here’s a car coming. Perhaps it’s Bill’s.’But it wasn’t. As it went by, Kiki hooted loudly—parp-parp-parp—exactly like a car.
