Still flying and biting
Little green bird has to be held constantly if he's out of his cage or he is OFF! Today he flew away while I was fixing his food (and he was in my shirt pocket!) and I lost him. The dogs were all standing around with that "What bird?" look on their faces. Ceiling fan was on in the living room - I know, that's a big no-no but I wasn't thinking. Finally found the little s**t behind the TV - which meant moving some furniture to get him out!
And he BITES!! I talked to the breeder to night and she said it is very normal, just trying to figure out the "pecking order" (as you said, Dena). I'm a little concerned about the rat poison in my system, although he has yet to actually draw blood when he bites. I do have scabby kind of places that show up later.
We went to PetSmart and the best investment I made there was one of those fuzzy huts. Since purplee is one of my favorite colors I bought a purple - only to get home and read the instructions that say to buy one the same color as the bird. Oh well, they didn't have green. Poor Frosty didn't get one - mean Mom! I'm sure I'll be back up there soon.
It's about picture day around here for the birds - I'll post pictures when I take them.
