  1. Breezy enjoys shelling his own nuts. It gives him something to do, keeps him busy. He likes a challenge.
  2. 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.
  3. Breezy likes the old toss and retrieve, too.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.
  10. 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.

  11. Think I remember you, too. Glad to be able to get back on here. I love my Grey. He is really smart.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. Lol! In all seriousness I do put bells on my horses saddles when trail riding to scare off any deer that could freak out and spook my horses, thereby causing them to dump me in the woods in the process. Dont know iff bells could scare away bears for sure, want to encounter them even less than I would deer while riding.
  17. Thanks, Dave! That sounds great that I can get a huge bottle of it at the pharmacy. Next time I get my blood pressure meds I will ask about buying that. He was nice and soaked by the time he decided he had enough and moved away from the spray. He was flapping his wings like crazy so I got those nice and soaked underneath, too. He seems to love getting sprayed and he seems to want me to give him a bath every day.
  18. I have heard many great things about spraying your grey with aloe spray so I bought some. The brand I got is AviVera by Avitec. My question for you guys is this. It says to spray them with water two to three minutes after spraying with the aloe spray, should I do this or leave it on him a little longer or should I possibly just leave the spray on him? Thanks in advance to anyone who reads this and responds. P.S. I should mention he is not plucking at all. I got it more because I thought he would like it and so far he does seem to like being sprayed with it very much.
  19. I do still have his baby cage. Might be able to put him in it at night somewhere quiet so he could sleep.
  20. Hi everyone! Breezy seems to like to stay up late with us. I usually cover his cage at 7:30 but if he hears us moving around he comes to the bottom of the cage and peeks out under his cage cover and peeps and talks to us. We usually end up taking him back out and sometimes he gets to bed kind of late. Would it be okay to leave his cover on later in the morning so he gets more sleep or should they be on a really early wake up schedule. He seems to be fine with sleeping in later, we are quiet if we are awake early. He acts happy and well rested so maybe the amount of sleep he is getting and what we are doing is fine. What do you guys think about this? I swear, he thinks he is going to miss something at night when he is covered up. Lol!
  21. He does seem to be, Nancy. He was ordering my dog around again today. It is really funny when he does that. I wish I could take a video.
  22. I still have dreams I can fly, even now. It is awesome! The fact that parrots can fly is the greatest thing in the world. It would be really great if we could fly as well. Breezy's wings got trimmed to keep him safe during shipping to me but they were not trimmed very short so he can still fly some. Going to let his wings grow out. I have cathedral ceilings and barn beams in my house. Would be great for him to fly around in when he grows his feathers in. Still working on how I will get him down when he flies to the barn beams which are fourteen feet above my head. Maybe a really LONG handled T perch. Lol!
  23. This morning Breezy was saying "Come here, Joann!" To me to try to get me to come over to him.
