  1. Do you have a website, Greytness? I should check into the freeze dried fruits and veggies just in case. I am able to find fresh fruits and veggies now, however, but the supply is still not quite right, it is hit or miss as to what I can find in the Grocery Store.
  2. We have plenty of frozen fruit and veggies. The freezer is packed full, actually, so I could always feed those. I am high risk as well (Diabetes, Hemochromatosis, Afib and other heart problems,) so the less I am in the grocery store to get exposed to it the better I feel that it wont end up killing me if I wind up catching it.
  3. We went to the Grocery Store once during the day and once at night. Going in the morning seems like a good idea. I will try that. We were able to find toilet Paper and Paper Towels today where before nobody had them so things may be normalizing. The Pelleted Mix I get has dry fruit and Veggies in it, so that may be good enough. Unfortunately Breezy gets upset if he doesnt get Fresh fruits and Veggies every day so he might be mad at me for awhile if I cant get them. He gets loud in the morning when he hears me up and I dont start getting his produce ready right away for him.
  4. I am in the High Risk Group (Diabetes, Heart Disease, Hemochromatosis) but am just being careful as I can. That means only going out when necessary, staying a distance away from people and telling people to back off, I am high risk if they come too close to me if I do absolutely have to go out. People are panicking, it is crazy! The stores in my area are almost empty and get emptied out again as soon as they are restocked. I havent been able to find Flour and other baking supplies since this all started. There are no cleaning or Paper Products to be found in the stores. Fortunately, I am Retired with a Pension, but money is no help when there is nothing left to buy. I cant Imagine the Hardships of those who cannot work during this due to the lockdown in my State. We are only to go out for Essential Services, pretty much food and pharmacy only. Even the medical centers are going to video conferencing.
  5. My State is on lockdown due to the Coronavirus. People are panic buying and food supplies are running low. I am thinking of stocking up on fruits and veggies and firing up my Dehydrator to have a supply of dried Items for Breezy. There was only one package of Raspberries and Grapes left in the store when my Husband went there to get his fresh food. I can still get his Pelleted Mixed Grey Diet I order, but am worried about not being able to get that. I can get Brown Rice still, but heard there is Arsenic in it. He does eat mash and Chop. I am going to Research how to make that balanced for him. I guess I am just concerned. Do I need to be concerned about Home Dehydrated fruits and Veggies for him? I need to find produce to even be able to do this. Fortunately, we are heading into spring here and if push comes to shove I can grow my own garden. My Husband said the Grocery Store is cleaned out and he has never seen anything like this. I will grow sprouts for him, too.

    Why

    I dont like Facebook, am no longer on there. I come here regularly, but too many people now seem to be relying on Social Media. I would just as soon leave Facebook and other forms of Social Media. Maybe it is a reflection of my age. Too many young arrogant people on Social Media who are rude and think they know everything. I am older, and dont tolerate disrespect from young people well. I have kept parrots for over forty years, and I dont appreciate some little 18 or 21 year old telling me I am doing things wrong.
  7. Breezy picks up words and Phrases from both me and my husband. He is a very good talker and often repeats things after hearing them only once.
  8. Breezy likes for me to carry him out and look at our tree when we turn the lights on. We did that tonight.
  9. Breezy enjoys shelling his own nuts. It gives him something to do, keeps him busy. He likes a challenge.
  10. I made a Mini Cupcake Liner Puffball Toy with Vine Balls and Beads that is going into a box of toys I am donating to a Rescue. I am almost ready to send that box off, it is just about full. My husband is helping me to make these. Once I am done with the donations I will make Breezy some toys.
  11. Breezy likes the old toss and retrieve, too.
  12. Yes, foot toys are toy parts strung on small lengths of bird safe rope or leather and tied that they hold and turn in their foot and chew. Breezy loves them.
  13. This is a fun room in the forum. It inspired me to make some foot toys for my Timneh Grey. Thanks everyone for the ideas!
  14. Made a toy for Breezy today.  Guess he liked it as it was on the bottom of the cage in pieces when I went in to feed him his dinner.  Went to the store after dinner and when we got home he started peeping and whistling at us.  He wanted his bedtime nut, so I went in the bird room, gave him his nut, which he was happy to eat.  Then I turned off the light and he has gone to bed.

      That's always a sign of a good toy!

  15. Fed Breezy his breakfast.  He was hungry.  Will let out the dog, then I think I am going back to bed for a bit.  Didnt sleep well last night at all.

  16. Breezy is out in the diningroom with me watching my husband as he does some work at the diningroom table.  He seems happy and is talking and peeping at us.  Fed him lunch a little while ago.  He got a couple of nutriberries, fruit and veggies.  He also got a spoonful of Higgins cooked diet, the Spice Market flavor.

  17. I have lost many dogs, cats and two large parrots over the years and they are all different, with unique personalities. A new pet is just that. A new pet. A new pet can never replace a pet you have lost. They are totally new and themselves since every animal is different. Your new kittens are very cute. Hope you enjoy them. I know the stillness and quiet in the house after I lose a pet is unbearable, and after grieving a bit I am ready to welcome another one.
  18. Breezy was just asking me to come out.  When I went in his room he was clinging to the front of the cage so I opened to door, stepped him up, and now he is in the dining room with me.  He seems happy, since he is grinding his beak.

  19. Think I remember you, too. Glad to be able to get back on here. I love my Grey. He is really smart.
  20. Thank you! I have had Breezy since he was sixteen weeks old and for a long time was having trouble logging in here. Not sure why, but I changed my Password and now it is working.
  21. Hi, I have actually been a member here for awhile, but havent been on the forum in a long time. I have a seven year old Timneh Grey named Breezy. He is primarily bonded to me, but he likes my husband as well. Hoping to keep learning about Greys here.

    Warm Food

    Breezy loves oatmeal.
  23. Spend as much time with Zoey as you can, just in case but I still hope she has a turn around and gets better. Dont give up yet.
