    Vader looks great. So glad all of the crises are over and you can just enjoy him.

    Hey guys/gals, I'm still in Thailand. I was enjoying a few days at the beach. (My weekend beach trips were put on hold the last 5 months with Vader).

    Flying to the US the day after tomorrow. Excited about seeing family again, kinda sad about leaving friends/fids here for so long though. It's a huge relief that Vader weaned before I had to go. He's decided to be loud pretty much all of the time now. Hoping the neighbors (also the landlords) don't kick me out. He's completely destroyed ALL of his tail feathers from climbing around so much. Joey decided to finally add some regurgitated food to her head bob a few days ago. It was disgusting. All over my arm. That's about all of my exciting news. Next stop: Disney.

    Have a great time and spoil your niece rotten - you can come back to Thailand and leave her with her parents.

    Wonder why Vader has decided to be so noisy - both of my GWs are/were really quiet unless the wanted something, or the sun was coming up or going down. Maybe he will quiet down.

    Oh I'm still in the USA. Here for a month. The animals are fine. Vader bit the caretaker though. I hope they learn to get along.

    Jasper is a very easy bird. She isn't noisy, she is affectionate, she follows many verbal instructions, she learns easily and she is a joy to live with. I've had her 17 years now and she's 24 years old.

    Hank, my 34 yo male who died 5 years ago, was almost the polar opposite - except he was not noisy either. The thing I treasure most about Hank was that he was a jokester and very silly.

    He's a cutie! I don't have any handfeeding tips since I never handfed a baby.

    I'll get some pictures posted soon. I'm still recovering from some horrible jet lag (had to go to right into work 3 hours after my 24-hour flight). I did manage to make it back with some huge toys and could probably build a tree from all the perches I crammed into my bags.

    Wow... i've just read through the whole thread and it was one big emotional roller coster! i'm so happy you pulled through! Vader's gorgeous and very lucky to have you. Glad you had great advice and moral support when you desperately needed it! I love this board. I hope you had a fantastic time with your family, I think the stress relief was earned. ;)
