Poor Lily. :(

Today, when I got home from work Lily was soo excited to see me. She was hopping around her cage saying "hi! Hi! Hi!". I went to rub her beak through the bars of he cage like I usually do before I get her out, and POW!! I shocked her. She yelled "squueeeee!", and cussed me out parrot style. It's the first time since we got her in August that she has shown anything but happiness towards me. I felt so bad. I have a parrotlet, so I'm used to being cussed out hy him. I was sad to hear Lily doing it, because she's just such a happy girl. After bitimg the offending fingers, and my nose a couple of time she forgave me. I think the sunflower seeds I gave her helped too. I guess it's time to get out the vaporizer.

My son was holding my green cheek on his finger one day 2 years ago... I went to get her to step up, there was a small flash and a small crack, then a loud squeal! I had shocked her ... It took me 5 minutes to get her to step up again.. She didn't bite, just refused to step up for me...poor girl.

Perry was just like that. Made the most horrific piggy noise if he didn't wanna be touched

Winter bites! In more ways than one. I'm always getting shocked. I hope I don't shock our birds, it sounds awful.

I've been running the vaporizer since, and it's much better now. No more shocks.
