Oh dear, Scarlet
I'm sorry about those tempting toes that were sticking down through the top of your cage. I completely understand. Wednesday when Jenny was here, I'd been tucked in my cage just until Uncle Chuck got all three birds in the room and things settled down. When Jen bailed out of her travel cage, she ended up on the floor near my cage, so of course started climbing up the sides right away. Wound up by all the excitement, I leaned out to check out her toes. Man, did mom yell at me! Yikes. Needless to say, I did NOT touch Jen's toes. I think mom would've BIT ME if I had! Like I said, I'm sorry you ended up feeling like a bad girl. I hope those metal hoops and the perch up there keep all tempting toes out of your reach from here on out. Mom's always making little adjustments like that around here too so accidents hopefully won't happen. It's a full time job supervising us parrots, isn't it.

You won't believe this but I have the almost exact chicken story to tell you! Yesterday the conures and 'tiels were screaming up a storm in their room, flappin' around so much, even dad asked mom if everything was okay in there. Mom said there must be something in the front yard that was scaring them, and she got up to look. There on the front porch was a big white chicken! She belongs to the neighbor guy and mom knows his chickens well; she's taken care of them on weekends ever since they were little chicks back in the spring. Mom went out to talk to Miss Chicken who had obviously jumped the fence in her yard and discovered that four others were meandering about in one of the landscaping mounds. Mom sort of escorted them back towards home and could see that someone was there; the garage doors were open. Sadly this morning we discovered one of them dead in our yard. One must've come back and camped out in the ornamental grass and then been found in the middle of the night by some marauding animal. There's a stray dog in the neighborhood today so we're wondering if he might be the culprit. Bummer end t'this story, huh. I like yours better.

Thanks for flyin' by my page. It's always a treat to get to chat with you. My apologies for takin' so long to come back by. These parronts of mine keep findin' stuff they think just has to be done. *pout*

Hope the week ahead's a good one.
