    Penny definitely has a real sense of humor. Her laughing is such a joy as are most of her sounds.

    Tonight as I moved her again near Rio she was a bit not sure.

    I put a cork board in front on Rios cage so she could settle down & they both could retire for the night & she started laughing!!!!

    It was almost as though she found it amusing how I had made him go away just like that!!!

    I love her so. She is such a joy to my soul....even if she is acting a bit louder now that she is near the window...

    Penny was doing her fire alarm when I was making french toast!

    Then when she was eatin git she was making all sort of yummy sounds!

    It was healthy made with sprouted grain/nut bread & cinnamon.

    She had hers plain but I had mine with a splash of cherry preserves & maples syrup!

    I made corm bread so she gets a few chunks for breakfast but she really was wild over the french toast! I was too hungry so I ate mine or I would have taken a vid of her eating with those yummy sounds!!!...oooh next time as I have 3 pieces left for tomorrow...

    It's great that you keep getting a lot more info about Penny's background. Most are never able to find out much of anything about their adopted birds.

    Those calendars were created by Aves International, a Southern California breeder.
    In fact:

    We began publishing the BABY BIRD CALENDAR in 1986 and published it every year through 2002. We stopped publishing the Baby Bird Calendar for the five years from 2003 through 2007, due to my husband's serious illness. We resumed publication of the Baby Bird Calendar and added a new title, The Fabulous Feathers Calendar in 2008, using digital images.
    These calendars are available online through our Cafe Press Store- please click here.

    It has become a tradition for many of our customers to purchase this calendar yearly and we hope it will become one for you as well! The calendars feature colorful photographs of adorable fully-feathered young birds highlighted by flowers and foliage that compliment their coloration. Photographs are by Gail J. Worth, the owner of AVES INTERNATIONAL and many of the birds photographed are bred by AVES INTERNATIONAL. The photographs were from medium format transparencies in the years 1986-2001 and from digital images
    from 2008 onwards.

    Aves International closed a few years ago. I think I have one or two somewhere.

    Thinking since Penny came from Omars / Frans 21 years ago that Sheena is related. They had contact with Pennys breeder & not like there are so many other Hawkhead breeders so chances are they are related or even from same clutch is she is 21 years old...

    Found Hawkeye a clutcmate sold by omars & its a fact 0hat he is a clutchmate w Penny & was one egg before her!
