After I read this I went back to look at the pic and OMG
I have never seen a Pouty Bird like this before.
you have some serious sucking up to do!
I gave him lots of love when I fed him and he's a little better. He made very dainty steps across his perch this morning and then he was hesitant to step onto my arm. The poor boy is unsure of his grip now that his nails aren't super sharp daggers. I waited far too long to get his nails groomed. I'm going to have to pamper his bruised ego for the next few days.
The store has been invited to bring some birds to a fundraiser put on by a local news station personality. We're going to take Jasper with us. He's a big green wing from the store. I can handle him, but one of the girls I work with has a much better relationship with him. He's very big and he was raised to play very rough. He's playful with her but goes overboard with me and I have to keep him in line or he becomes impossible. I thought about taking Sandy, but I'm concerned because she's fully flighted. Well, her wings are intact, but she rarely flies. At her age, it's so much work to get those old bones into the air that she just doesn't bother. In the last 3 years, I've seen her fly 2 or 3 times, and only when she's fallen off of her perch. She can be pretty rude to people and I don't want to take the chance of her biting someone. I might take one of the baby green wings even though they are mine and not part of the store flock. Chewie is clipped, but the last time I took him to an event with another bird is when he gave me that bad bite. However, if I hold him and do not let my coworker touch him then he won't have any need to be jealous over me touching another bird. My chances of being his chew toy will be much lower. I'm just not sure.
