Tumit had been an expert flyer as well, zooming and doing all the tricks of other birds. He was very precise in his landings and could even hit a moving target. Until there was one moment of an accident.

I'm so sorry Lin. I totally feel you. I get anxious every day checking Lilly's Feathers, I can't imagine how frustrated you are. It's so hard to see them keep doing it I wish we could just say "hey you, stop it!"

I told you, he thinks he's sympathizing. He looks at you and says "that poor bird, she plucked all her Feathers. I will also pluck some to make her feel better."

There is no food bowl large enough to prevent Melody from dropping her crumbles over the side of the bowl.
She's so spoiled I have to hold her and the food by the sleepy cage so she can snack before bed and she just bobble heads around the whole time dropping nutriberries crumbs all over.. ..

So if any of you out there have MBS, let me tell you some days I wake up and think "how did I end up with 5 birds?"

It's like a zoo in here when they all start squacking, I've got multiple fids flying around, food and water dishes all over, poo-doos and 5 bedtime routines.
Yes I love all my birds but just saying.... Yikes.
Oh, and not to mention yesterday Rosey laid and egg.
Her and Jasper have not mated, but she's super hormonal. I knew it was coming.

One bird, two birds,....27 birds! There doesn't seem to be anyone that ever stops at 3 birds. It must be a physical impossibility or something. Tumi tells me he is an ONLY BIRD always, and his beak is a strong motivator to listen.
