updates of the flock

so i decided to share some updates on the flock~~

last night when i was training, Pickles is doing great at coming on my finger for millet and for the first time Baby came on my finger a few times, she was unsure but mostly because pickles was trying to get on with her to steal the millet and i was able to get bobby in the perch too he was really wanting millet, so i took it up a notch and made him come on the perch to get some. he was unsure and in the end he flew off and some how knocked Bowie down. i tried again and he only put one foot on so i let him be. bowie is still pretty timid and i am hoping that he will eventually come around. i think bobby is going to be like butch, because he was feeling the perch to make sure its safe, the same way butch does

Butch is finally learning how to fly again, now that his wings are finally growing in. he is starting to be a little bit more brave. he flies weird though, im going to blame it on the fatty tumor... he reminds me of a spaceship taking off when he flies... i just cant really explain it i have the mini tree hanging from the ceiling so its above the tree and once leon flies onto it, but eventually does too. he won't fly onto the window play gym for some reason, which i think it would be easier than getting onto the hanging tree.

Leon is once again obsessed with The Toy, which makes it much easier to get him to come to me he also loooves eating his broccoli and lettuce butch an bobby will only eat lettuce and the girls and bowie won't eat any veggies. i am trying to change their all seed diet (shame on me!!) to natural Zupreeme pellets (soon to be arriving), seed, veggie nutriberries, and fruits and veggie if i can get the other 3 to at least eat something! i also hope to take pickles out soon to start out of cage training so she can be with the boys. she seems to be the alpha-hen so i dont know how its going to go.... i think school work will get in the way B-|

i cant wait until all new ones are tamed so i can join the cages into a mega cage with a cage top play gym- which i have had planned out for a month or two now.

ohhh... and i have ordered a 14"x14" seagrass mat... i dont know what in the world im going to do with it but it was only $3 so i got it along with the pellets and nutriberries


Pickles!!!


mr butch alone on the window gym...


from a while back when i took baby out to see leon (huge untamed mistake!!). she loves leon and so i couldnt help it. it ended with her getting her wings clipped (she still talks gibberish!!)








butch being the {nervous} third wheel when she came out

Beautiful flock!!


And God said, "...let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." And God saw that it was good.
