She picked me. I reached my hand out for her to step up and she did. She had not even stepped up for the breeder..

  Birdie Behavior
I have got to stop leaving the tube on for my birds while I am away. My bird pair, Doc and Mufahsa (D&M), remind of the two old men on the Muppet Show but dirty. I don't know who started the conversation but one of them said, "You wanna?" to which the other replied, "OH YEAH!" and both of them starting laughing in that special group Quaker laugh. Those two breed like rabbits anyway. I am sure they know what they are saying. They properly apply the context of the terms.

While they are fertilizing eggs, Mufahsa will turn around to Doc and say, “What are you doing.” After they are done, Doc will say thank you and Mufahsa will say You’re welcome. Then Doc says “I am a pretty bird”. Doc is a conceited little snot. Lots of time D&M are just talking Quaker to each other. They will make a point to look at you when they start their Quaker jabber and then about a minute into it just start laughing at you.

It is one thing to have your kids busting on you on a daily basis, but when your birds start doing it, that is adding insult to injury.

Blueper, my new parrot, is not fitting in yet. The breeder told me that sometimes greens will not accept mutations. Flip was accepting Blueper until she got back around D&M. I have caught Flip preening Blueper some but she quits when she sees me. The other birds have extended a little more acceptance but there is still a way to go.

I made a monster play gym to go on top of one of the cages. After I completed the base, I brought it into the room to make sure it would fit the cage properly. All four birds scattered in four directions. I felt like Billy Crystal in City Slickers when he started grinding the coffee. I have never been in a bird stampede before. I am sure that was just the first of many. The birds do not know how to say “Oh fudge” or I am sure I would have heard it then.

I was watching Blueper trying to use telepathy to get Mufahsa to take about three steps forward. I think Blueper was wanting to give Muhfahsa his opinion on things or on Mufahsa.



At first the birds would not have anything to do with the gym. They are warming up to the monster gym now. Actually I was amazed that D&M voluntarily left the cage area. I was surprised the base of the gym spooked Flip. She is not afraid of anything except Mongo. Mongo is my Great Pyrenees/Boxer mix. Flip dive bombs the dog and gets out of the way. Mufahsa does the same but forgets to get out of the way. Consequently, Mufahsa has literally lost her butt twice. She is best flier of the greens so I wonder what the deal is.

Flip does get along with Monkey, Lucky and Sugar Muff. My 8 year old named her cat Sugar Muff. Unfortunately, we could not convince her to name her cat anything else. We at least got her to call it by the nickname of shughie. Monkey is a Bobcat/tabby mix. We found him and his litter mates in the fan area of my car. Unfortunately, he was the only one survived. Lucky is a mongoloid black tomcat.

We have kittens right now. Big f

Come visit me, Beaky, Mufahsa, Doc, Blueper & Flip.

  Hello Flip...
