Hi everyone... it's been a while. Just so busy and tired with work and also trying to learn as much about my new species. So far they all get along great playing together. They have separate cages, and when they all come out to play, sometimes they go in each others' cage, it is really hilarious.

anyway, about two weeks ago, i tried a new pellet method. I have been using the same one for a year and they just are SO stubborn little babies!! So i tried a new method of separating the pellets from the regular food, and having the pellets up high. well, they were drawn to the cup, but all they do is rummage around in the pellets to see if there's anything to eat in it LOLOL!!

long story short, they were all in the middle of a molt at that time. For the first time in his life, Bleu has maintained feathers on his right wing, or left wing if looking at him head on. He has a full set on the other wing. But here's the great GREAT news!!! HE FLIES!!! He is not crashing into walls, he is steering, he is slowing down or speeding up when he needs to!!! I don't know if it had something to do with allowing him to pig out on seed or what but he has just had a complete turnaround.

The feathers on the "weak wing" are fewer and shorter, so he kind of has an asymetrical molt going on. He also seems more confident now that he can fly. He lets Peri know who is boss sometimes now.

Bleu is still a little frightened by Fiji (my pacific parrotlet) but Peri and Fiji play together quite nicely.

we are about to leave for a trip but i will try to post a quick picture in here.

sorry, its taking too long.

I love your birds. They are so pretty. Yay! Bleu! That is great that he is getting better. Very cool. I am sure that is some weight off your shoulders. Fiji is precious. I keep trying to convince Brian that we need one but its a no go for now.

So good to see your babies doing well. Congrads.



RIP Peeps
