Thank you for the suggestion!
Hi, I am Tootles' mommy and I appreciate the comment you made about buying Tootles another Timneh. Please don't misconstrue what I am going to say but I am afraid to buy another Timneh. I love Tootles to death but we already have some behavior issues with her which I believe stems from where we purchased her. I was gravely misinformed when we got her and I believe this is the root of some of her problems. I love her to death and I can hold her, pet her, scritch her head, kiss her...just about anything BUT I am the only one. She does step up for my husband but "complains" the entire time. She has bit my husband several times, once to the point of drawing blood. My daughter is slowing working her way into Tootles' area but she is very finicky with my children as well as everyone else. I know you need to watch children with birds and etc., and I honestly do. I have had some smart (nasty) comments made to me because my children are too young to understand birds. I think these people need to understand where my children came from before saying that. I love Tootles to death and we are working with her to improve her "issues". I have consulted some professionals on how to handle this and we have been slowly trying to do what we were told. I know this change will not happen over night. Also, I KNOW I need to correct this issue before even thinking about bringing another bird into our home. I did my homework with Tootles and felt I was making a smart choice but I made a bad choice on where I got her which I didn't realize until recently. I have thought about getting another Timneh or even a Congo. I have not ruled that out. I just need to socialize Tootles better and get her to tolerate the whole family before I make any decision. Also, we are still waiting for her dna results. They are taking FOREVER and a day. LOL!!! I have not completely given up on the idea of another Timneh. We were at a bird store over the weekend with baby Congos and let me tell you that these babies behaved nothing like Tootles did when she was that age. She bit me the first time I handled her (before she was weaned). Anyway, I am hogging all of Zoe's blog area...SORRY! I could go on and on for hours. I just want to thank you for the suggestion and I will honestly consider another Timneh once we get Tootles on the right track. I am not buying a bird for another year. I am just starting research.
