    Oh, I'm sure Coco would LOVE a peanut butter sandwich. I guess I can't expect his weight loss to be a quick process! I slimmed down my obese budgie quickly, but he's on a simpler diet to keep him at just the right weight since he has other health concerns.

    Yeah. That picture captured Secret's personality.

    MC is sweeter, maybe he'll develop Angel's personality?

    @EkkieLu .
    I never noticed the blue on Angel till you mentioned it. It's a little smudge bet it calms her personality a little I think that's what blue eyes do to a bunch of different people I've known over the years.

    @Dona :needpics:


    :heart: Pls!

    Angel has a BIG personality for sure. He's the life of the party wherever he goes! He adds comments to every conversation. Really, No Way, That's Funny, What a Hoot, Are You Kidding Me, and everyone just cracks up!

    When he wasn't feeling well my house seemed strangely quiet.

    My Sam the BFA gets a peanut butter sandwich once in a while. I take a bit of crust off a piece of whole wheat bread and smear some natural peanut butter on it. He will kill for it! He is a big bird also. 608 grams.

    Angel is doing very well! He's still having slight trust issues with me, but after me having to towel him several times a day for a couple weeks to clean his wounds and give him his meds I guess that's to be expected. He is clowning around and doing some of his trick stunts again, so that's a good sign!

    I went through that crazy toweling w/ Buddy. I'd just started getting him to step up @ the time. I'd only held him a little bit & was still pretty unsure if he'd eat me. I was a nervous wreck too!

    I towel him daily now (eye drops) & It's not a big deal anymore. But I so get it!

    Now it's a cuddle type of time, we both enjoy it.

    Dug this old thread up as Solomon got weighted at the vet Thursday.

    Solomon is a 20 year old Mealy Amazon.

    800 Grams. Big boy, also needs to go on a diet. The vet thought he'd come in over 800 from his size.

    Clean bill of health, just fat. :p

    Hi Steve, Oliver is beautiful! Love all the blue on his head. Ollie is probably around 16 or 17 years old. He's been with me just over 9 years. I'm surprised Oliver weighs in even lighter than Ollie. Oliver must be small too. :) Does Oliver fly? That will build muscle! Ollie is a strong flier. :fly2:

    No Oliver doesn't fly but he is on the smaller side. Once while Oliver was on one of his checkups there was an older Orange Wing there that was much bigger than Oliver.

    Hi and thank you for the compliment. I love all that yellow Fuzzy has on his head. Oliver has some yellow feathers growing in on the top of his head. Oliver doesn't fly as much as he used to.
