Hey Zizi!
You are so beautiful! Here's a vote! My Birdie, Fifi, has a happy hut too, one exactly like yours. Isn't it a great little condo? And it's preenable! Did you know there is a toy too, from the same company that makes the hut? (Forgot their name, but can check.) The toy is plush as well, and it's a kind of a blankie, about your size, and it attaches to the cage bars. It sits nicely on a perch, for example, and forms a cozy nook for you to cuddle to or lean on when you take a nap. Tell your Mom about it ; it's a nice thing to have for smaller-sized birds. Now I'll speak to your Mom : I'm no specialist, but maybe my suggestions will be of assistance. It sure must be confusing to you when Zizi tries to mate with you. Bird Talk actually ran an article about how to deter such advances a while ago. I will look it up and let you know which issue it was. It basically said that it would be best not to indulge your bird because he or she will only become more confused. It advised that you put your bird down to cool off whenever they try to mate with you. I know it may seem difficult, but I think with time it can only become easier. I don't know for how long you've been Zizi's Mom ; if it's not too long, have you thought of taking her to a vet for a well-bird check-up? You love her so much, so I think it would really be a good idea. First off, they will run basic blood tests on her, including dna, so you will be reassured as to her sex. Just in case. Next, the vet will be able to tell you if the tummy changes are related to eggs or something else. Don't be afraid to take Zizi to the vet. It's one of the best things you can do for your sweetie princess. Birds do hide illnesses very well, and you don't wanna wait, especially if Zizi is experiencing tummy troubles. I hope and believe it's nothing, like you say, but just diarrhea and constipation must be unpleasant enough for your little baby. The symptoms you describe could be related to a number of different issues, including egg-binding, so I would really suggest you consult an avian vet instead of waiting. It's absolutely not my intention to scare you! I truly hope everything turns out all right! My little Linnie, Fifi, has had I think four well-bird check-ups so far, and I can't describe the feeling of relief I feel each time I know FOR SURE that he has a clean bill of health. Being his Mommy, I feel proud to provide him with all the care that he needs, and as we all know, medical care is so important. Also, if for example you can't afford a vet visit at that point, there are various insurance options available. Please keep us posted on your Princess' progress! It's a pleasure meeting you and Zizi! Love, Eva and Fifi (Fifi will have a page very soon :).
