A little set back

Most of the parrots have made the adjustment to their new surroundings. Merlin one of the Moluccans, had to move back in the house. He's a self mutilator and started the habit again. I moved him out right away as once they are in the habit of plucking and mutilating, it's very hard to break th...

Today we completed the transition of all the birds into the new aviary!!!! All seem to be doing well, there were a couple that took a little longer to adjust than others. Bonnie (umbrella) really surprised us, she was the most nervous of all. Usually she is easy going and pretty excepting but when w...

Just as I was expecting, Molly and Ceasar have been getting into scraps with each other whenever I am in the room. Hopeful...

After much delay, unforseen events, etc. we have FINALLY began to move some of the parrots into the new aviary, yaaaaaa!!!  We started with the smaller birds figuring they would need a little more time to adjust. I was hoping to move the macaws today as well however, it took a bit longer with the others. That's ok though, the small guys need...

Today we had a dry run of the aviary with Merlin & Mango (our Moluccan Cockatoos) to see how they would react and if there are any changes to be made before moving everyone in. It went great!!! They had a wonderful time, one of Mango's feet is twisted in a bit so he took things very slow at firs...

A little closer!! :)

Today we made a little more progress although not as much as we had hoped for.  Bowls, a few toys & a couple of boxes are now in place, but there is still a lot of work left to do! At least it's starting to look like something and the few toys and swings add a little color in the place. There are many more toys and swings to hang however, they are in the cages and in use so we can't take them until moving day. We are still looking for large quantities of Timothy Hay to use on th...

We have made a little more progress on the aviary today. More branches added, a few toys and swings hung for the little guys. Tomorrow we will complete the feeding stations & hang a few boxes for the smaller birds. Our plan is to cut some branches which still have leaves on them to add so they have hiding places. These will be taken from our backyard to be sure there are no pesticides and we know the trees are healthy. We will also be adding a few houses created from gourds so e...
