Kiki's Early Hatchdate Surprise

Kiki's hatchdate is October 1, a month from now.
She REALLY needs to be spoiled. Like, if I were her, and I saw Abby gone all the time at work, saving all her money for this new darn Grey, I'd be pretty upset.

Her cage has slowly gotten emptier over time as her toys have been destroyed and such. I explained to my mom how I felt worried about her and I really feel she deserves new stuff. Lots of new stuff.
My mom understood and allowed me to use a portion of old allowance to purchase Kiki some new perches/toys/cage accessories. With the wonderful sale going on at the wonderful Persnickety Parrot website, I managed to buy a fair amount for around $60-$70. I placed my order yesterday and I'm so thrilled to recieve my order! (I would like to thank Kristen for her wonderful website, also.)

(If you are curious about exactly where this money came from, before I had a job, I had a bit of allowance from my parents. Now, what used to be allowance, goes towards college-related things, such as textbooks and supplies. This money was not meant for the Grey, and if I as a bird owner were to ignore Kiki's needs and just put it towards a new bird, I feel that would make me a bad owner.)

So Kiki will have quite the cage remodel once I recieve the package! I will take a picture of everything and let you know how the birds like them.

She most definitely will! I cannot wait for it to arrive! She will have so much fun with all the stuff I picked out. (At least I hope, baha!)

It was solos hatch day on september 3rd (I've been really busy so I couldn't make a thread) and I was a bit low on cash so I could only get him one or two things but at the end of the month I'm going to get him a whole bunch of stuff , I've been short on money for a while so he deserves it

For the past couple of days, I've tried adding this to the thread but my internet kept messing up halfway through. Let's hope this works!

Last Tuesday, Kiki's gifts from Persnickety came in. Rose and I wrapped them all and let her unwrap them and baked Kiki blueberry muffins and sung happy hatchday to her. It was a fun time. Here are some pictures of some of the toys/supplies and other random things..

What an awesome haul! I love that long toy with the wood blocks hanging off it ( 3rd pic from bottom)! Kiki is indeed a lucky birdy.

It actually has a hook on both sides so you can use it for perching, chewing, climbing and you can hang it up in multiple ways. It's great.
