    Should I Get A Buddy for Issac?

    I am all for another bird. My greys have no use for my Amazon, but knowing they are not alone while I’m at work is a source of comfort for me. They all have their own cages, but I think they like knowing they are a “family”. They don’t preen or play with each other, in fact Talon my grey and my Amazon play chase at times. But they do see very secure in the fact that they have other birds near them.

    Thank you, for those of us who never breed and haven’t seen new babies. That was a fun fact to see!

    I'm Back !! (The Old Jay)

    Jay...Maggie...you both know how I feel....and WHY I seem "busy" you know what that is about..... You both will always have a special place in my heart...I WILL speak for other members...and if they don't like what I say, they can disappear...but OUR BIRDS HAVE A BETTER LIFE IN OUR HOMES BECAUSE OF THE ADVICE & HELP YOU HAVE OFFERED OVER THE YEARS. I know I have more knowledge because of you..NO ONE can take that away from you & you should be proud of all you have done in life. I am sad you don't recognize all the great threads & posts you have done for our fids. You should be focusing on all the GOOD things you've accomplished here & nothing else. THAT is Gods wish ( and mine ) THANK YOU to the members that took the time out of your busy lives to post in this thread....MOST of you don't know the depth of Jays declining health, I do & have respected his wishes not to discuss it here on the forum, but the fact that he is still able to communicate to Maggie so she can write for him here is a difficult task in itself,. Love to you both as always..<3 ❤️

    Does your grey curse?

    Well, sadly..Nilah does yell “damn it!” She picked that up from me when I got really mad one day when I broke a much loved possession......😣

    Springtime Amazon

    Well it is clearly spring.....Nilah is VERY hormonal. She is a crazy wild woman! Ever since my daughter started bringing home boyfriends years a go...Nilah has attacked every female who enters my house...it is very bad when it’s spring...soooo....it’s very difficult for my 2 sons when they bring their girls friends home...Nilah will go full blown attack at them. Problems being once she’s out of her cage for the day, there’s no getting her back in until bedtime...and NO I absolutely won’t keep her cage bound on my day off from work...I also can’t have visitors unless she’s in her cage so I discourage guests... How many years of this do I have to deal,with this behavior???? I am the only one who can handle her and she is bonded to me, so I’m not a problem...but any other female is..... I welcome any opinions or advice to help us thru...

    Springtime Amazon

    Well I guess the good news is Nilah is 9 years old.....so I will be looking forward to year 12....! And she is no doubt bonded to me..which I am fine with...I just feel bad for Talon especially who is kinda on her own cause NIlah is the boss of me 😎

    Springtime Amazon

    Yes, I am the confident one that keeps the upper hand. I can usually calm her when I start singing to her.....She does actually have her "act" on my shoulder where she actually demonstrates having an amazon orgasm 😱 i(didn't know there was such a thing, but there is with her) Then she goes on her merry way.. I don't have any willing volunteers who will work with me on re-socializing her...so I just have to deal with it. One of the girlfriends is very meek & low confidence... and Nilah can sense that...so she spends no time in my house other than my sons room, when she passes thru, I take Nilah in the bathroom with me & we wait it out there.. The other girlfriend IS self confident, not afraid of her, has tried to offer her snacks over the years etc, Sometimes NIlah is fine with her...mostly in the fall & winter...but spring is a different story. The only weapon of terror we have against Nilah is Zoob-tube that she is fearful of..so my sons girlfriend just carries it around with her everywhere when shes here. Only in the spring will Nilah fly at her, but my son tries to shoo her way...it gets a bit stressful in the house when he brings her home...but only in the spring.... Most importantly...NO-ONE is willing to help the situation in my house cause MOM knows NOTHING...😜

    There is never a need to apologize. We are all human, we all have drama, issues, problems, and busy things going on in our lives. Sometimes we are in a hurry and post a quick reply...sometimes we just read and don’t contribute....we all make mistakes....ALL are welcome here and ALL are forgiven. You have been a big contributor and for that I will always be thankful. You both are in my prayers as always.

    Animal Cribs

    Does anyone watch Animal Cribs on Animal Planet? I am hooked. Did you see the episode of the Parrots rescue? That’s my dream set up...it’s a great show, if you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. ?

    Oh my goodness! Good thing you found it out now tho....now Gracie Mae says...get back to work
  18. Talon


    Oh my gosh!!! I am so sorry ...I have a lot of personal trauma going on in my life and missed this...I am so very sorry this happened. But thank God you did what you had to to save their lives. How lucky you are to have rescued them..that is the only reason I keep carriers next to their cages with pillow cases for that very reason. i have no doubt that in HIS grey time....he will come around. That was some pretty severe trauma he went thru...I’m sure he is in shock still...remember..he doesn’t understand WHAT happened and WHY you did what you did...he has to come to terms with what in his mind..YOU did to him....and what happened..just the alarms going off are enough to set my birds into a panic...he had a lot more he went thru..... You may have to start from square one again...sitting next to his cage...singing to him...talking softly....reading to him in a quiet voice...just loving him as you do...and giving him space....but on HIS terms.....not yours....and PATIENCE will be key here.... please keep us updated...his is our family too

    Whoever told you don’t open the cage is just making the adjustment worse, it will reinforce his fear of humans, if he can’t fly, open the cage while you are around to supervise, he may sit for weeks with the door open, in time he’s going to get curios and may sit on the door. That’s a high first step. i understand the fear and thrashing he probably does of cleaning his cage...but it has to be done...even slow gentle movements by you, soft singing while you do it. And do just the bare necessities, clean the bottom grate and change the paper...let the other stuff go..as he learns that you won’t harm him, you will be able to do his perches. Patience, kindness, gentle humming or singing, and very slow movements so he can see you are not a threat. It will take time, but will work.
  24. Thanks Kevin, your the best!❤️
