Companions come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and coverings. Particularly in our home. I feel happier sharing my world with other living beings. Except Palmetto Bugs. I am not happy about them, or their being.
This is an awesome and worthwhile cause. The dream of all who share their homes and hearts with Companion Parrots is that they be enabled to live like a Bird should live. I can't wait to read more about the future aviary flights and see lots of photos as the project continues to floutrish
Hilariousness! Butters & Snickers obviously understand that hilarity is everywhere if you know how to look! Perhaps a large shower atop the bird room, enclosed in a spacious aviary, would be an appropriate play area for some mornings or afternoons. . .
It's such a sad thought to me that she may never fly. I've seen her instincts kick in when she gets frightened too badly, but she can't just take off whenever she'd like. Seeing her in comparison to other birds that are fully flighted makes me feel angry at the previous owner, but also guilty. I know that she'll most likely never be as happy and fulfilled as them, even though I try my hardest.
Michie I think our girl is just opinionated. ;) lolz
Veggie Success boils down to finding the texture, temperature and size that "clicks" with an opinionated pallet. Felix will only eat apples that are raw and chopped in a certain sized square. You'll never see him eat apple sauce or large pieces.
Sweet potatoes must be cubed, cooked and cold. Except for the Macaws,they want theirs mashed and warm.
My suggestion is figuring out the temperature first. I don't know too many parrots that don't like warm foods. From their size and texture. I'd like to here how this works out for you.
