Good morning!
Good morning, Limestone and family! Beautiful fall a.m. here but cold. My feet did stay warmer last night though 'cause mom has re-circulating oil heater in my room now. If your mom uses one tell her to BE SURE use it first in different room put it on high to burn off the chemical smells that come with some of them. Mom learned the hard way BUT IN TIME. Boy, Limestone sounds like you were riding a roller coaster of problems there, buddy. So you gave her the Pitt Bull bite, huh? That's why I missed Sprout's party 'cause I had biten mom and I was punished. Mom very rarely lets me sit on your shoulder because I am so unpredictable. She NEVER walks with me on her shoulder. She always talks to me as we're walking through the house explaining what we're doing and it helps and I mumble to her as we go along. Mom says on my "bad days" I'm like a PMS-ing rattlesnake. Not sure, but that doesn't sound like I'm something good. Speaking of CVS mom was pharmacy tech there for years and floor worker before that about 10 years total. Yes, mom says the tummy and "associated" parts can be VERY embarassing as you get older because of the fibro problem..mom is 64 with couple of "close calls". This a.m. she is doing fine so far she says and she is singing and moving around really well. It makes you much more appreciative of "good days/hours/minutes" that we normally take for granted, for sure. Did you read the article in Bird Talk about winter weather and are preen gland? Since mom put me on Sweet Tators and Harrison high protein mash my gland has been super duper A-ok. Mine had clogged before and wasn't working because of lack of carotene. Mom cleaned it out and did the better diet. Tell your mom if you're having trouble she can tell if you're CONSTANTLY rubbing with your beak on the top and sides of middle of your back -- I mean, you have to rub it to make it work but if it is clogged you are doing it more aggressively and more frequently and your feathers still look crappy -- it's above tail on lower back -- there is a "rubber-like" when clogged --area that is supposed to be soft and gooie with wick feathers we use to preen with when we touch that oil comes out for us to use. Really neat. I liked it when mom worked on mine. She even made warm compress to help open it up and then gently rubbed it until she got it fixed took few times though. It felt good though and I was very relaxed once she got started and was very gentle. Too much writing, sorry. Peter Tatorhead. PS.. In your picture at bottom where you have something in your mouth -- just above your wing that shows and before your tail -- on middle of back is preen gland. Not all bird species have this..we're special!!
