Please do not ask parrot related questions in the shoutbox. They'd get buried quickly here and may be important for all to read :)

Adele: I packed away one of Manzi's perches. It is hilarious that he doesn't notice until he is a 1ft away in the air and has no where to land. Then he circles back and usually tries again, like it will magically appear. Not sure why he doesn't look first. Jul 19, 2014 10:51:33 GMT -7

Haz: Adele, he expects you to replace it when he can't find it the first time. We are born to serve our grey masters. Jul 20, 2014 7:37:19 GMT -7

bepmo: I just got my baby Xena. She is 13 weeks old and friendly as can be. I am trying to get her to eat pellets, but she will not. I am trying to find foods for a calcium resource for her because I am worried about her diet. She does eat very well though Jul 29, 2014 16:01:07 GMT -7

Haz: Persist with the pellets. Broccoli is a good source of calcium. Low levels of calcium can result in seizures. Jul 30, 2014 7:42:58 GMT -7

Sophia: Sorry for the late reply, pegi :) You can put up your Grey for adoption in the "General Grey" forum and hopefully somebody lives close enough to you. We all love them so much that you're likely to find a good home for him or her that way... Aug 8, 2014 8:36:15 GMT -7

Adele: The birds are loving their cage set up outside. So much so that Manzi didn't want to come in after I got home from errands this afternoon. They already had some neighbors whistling away to them. Aug 27, 2014 18:59:39 GMT -7
