Adding a new parrot to the fold
Hope everyone is having a great week so far. I hadn’t realized how long it had been since I posted. Badddd me.
I’ve been repainting a bird cage for a new arrival that is coming Sunday. Be assured though, I have used non-toxic paint and done this before.
His name is Elvis and he is a Yellow Nape Amazon. I’ll post pics when he gets here. I already have an African Grey who is my bosom buddy. I got her when she was 2 weeks old, hand fed her for 3 1/2 months and she is now 28 and very bossy but I love her to death. The Yellow Nape is approximately 14. Guess what the first thing I am going to try and teach him is?????? “Thank you, Thank you, Thank you very much.” Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Do any of you have birds out there? Any kind? My first was a Cockatiel who lived to be 14. His name was Popeye and he could sing I’m Popeye the Sailor Man. I loved that bird so much and he loved everyone who would talk to him.
Let me know what kind you have? I’d love to hear from you! Birds are amazing critters.
