I'm sorry I've been gone for awhile, but I'm back now
Lots of holidays and stuff.
Anyway, a week or two ago my Ooblar started losing a ton of feathers. All over the place. She's recently just out of no where, popped out some new wing feathers - they're really long. I'm not sure where the other ones went, though
Anyway, I'm afraid to take her out of her cage because I don't want her running into a wall or getting out, and we've scheduled a vet appointment for clipping once Gary loses his (He seems very close. They're about the same age, so I'm guessing it's about time.) The thing that worries me is, now with her new showy wings, Ooblar won't let me get her out of her cage. Usually she'll just hop onto my finger and walk around with me, but now she hustles about the cage. She's always been friendly, let me get on her on my finger the first day. Gary still is a bit skittish of me, and bites in the morning
Someone said it was because now that she knew she could fly, she wouldn't want to be around me because she knew she could get away. I don't how much of that is true.. but will it stay this way? Or will she be okay after she's clipped?
I just talking away here, but one more thing. Is there any way to stop them pooping in their water!? I have to clean it 3 times a day. No matter where I put it in the cage, it gets pooped on. I think they sit on it sometimes. Will one of those.. covered cup things help? The ones they can stick their heads into? Anyway, thanks in advance to any advice, I know I babbled a bit
