Doesn't like me - yet
I got home yesterday afternoon and I think every bird except Henry bit me. How did I dare go off and leave them?
The new one was just upset to find out that he has to share Bubba, I think. He's a deceitful little snot - all sweetness, fuzzing up those feathers on his head, nodding his head - until I reach for him. He's only brought blood once.
He's a beautiful bird and is doing great with Bubba - which is the biggest deal to me. I think once I get over my trip (which means I've slept most of today and may do the same tomorrow) we'll get serious about making friends. I know better than to try to force myself on him so it will probably take a while. So far he has only said "Hi" and "Hello" so we aren't sure how far his vocabulary goes.
When I get the energy to sit here longer I've got a gazillion pix of Zoe to download then I'll take some of him so you can see him. Just from the pix it looks like Eephous would dwarf him as far as size is concerned.
Speaking of size, Sweets is absolutely HUGE!! He wouldn't eat much for Bubba and is mad at me for leaving him for a few days, so weaning may be sooner than we expected for him! He's not in quite so much of a snit today - but, man, do we need to do something with those nails!!
Promising pix later -
