Minky enjoying his spinach! he has been grumpy lately and trying to hump everything and everyone (apart from my mum, who he for some reason loves biting super hard. he even laughs when he does). Ellie has been a dirty birdie, showing off her "underpants" to me everytime I try to take her out of the cage :o: she seems to think her little cat bell ball toys are eggs at night and sits on them, I don't want to remove them just in case she lays eggs. spring is definitely here :birdance:

they are lovely birds but they're a lot of work, can get really mean and even draw blood. they're not fun when they decide youre doing something they don't like :') but they're very smart and love to play. crazy birds with a lot of personality. oh and their poop.. they poop so much and its all liquidy.. there's a lot of pros with them but also a fair share of cons :o:

me and ellie were chilling and then the evil boy decided he didnt like that anymore, threw his apple and flew on top of her to try attack her :( luckily shes fine, just super angry, she flew onto the ground (good exercise I guess?). hopefully minky will chill out a bit eventually :(

Maybe you can crop it if it’s acceptable? Not sure of all the rules. Personally I like the one of your avatar. Love babies on their backs!:lol:

View attachment 414800 not sure if i should submit this photo to the competition or take another. I hate that there's a sprite bottle in the back :(
So cute! I like it sprite bottle and all but I think you definitely have enought time to take more and then decide :D

I took at least 10 photos myself, choosing between them was the hardest part :lol:

I would use the one in my avatar but it doesn't meet the size requirements and its portrait instead of landscape:(

Awww a hyper baby :heart:

I had luck with setting my bird down on his general play area and having my phone ready to snap any down time moments (mostly when he was preening lol)

Your baby is sooo pretty though hopefully you get some other good pics as well! :swoon:
