I went to Petco yesterday to get crickets and I had to go look at the keets. Well I fell in love with two of them.
One yellow keet picked up a little jingle bell that had fallen out of a broken toy that was laying on the floor of the cage. She carried the bell over to the toy and put it back inside the toy. What a smart birdy! Another bird took it out and ran with it so she chased him, took the bell and placed it back inside of the broken toy again.
Another keet that was a beautiful blue and green was playing in the pellet/litter in the bottom of the cage. She would pick up a piece with her feet then roll on to her back and play with it, nibbling it with her beak. I've never seen a keet roll on their back while playing. It was soooooo cute!
It took everything in me to walk out of the store without those birds. My hubby kept yelling at me to stop looking at the keets, LOL!

How cute! Xorda and McLovin roll on their backs when the dog does too. I think I have a picture of Xorda rolling onto his back.

I try not to go to Petco either but they are the only place around where I can buy crickets. There is another place that is a small pet shop but it's 20 minutes away. I go when I am already in that area but it's not worth it for me to go all that way for just crickets.

[b][size:11pt]Sounds like you found a couple of cuties. :D How could you resist? You must have a will of steel! You’d better start finding your crickets in the garden, or else make space for a new birdcage!!!! ;) Every once & a while my little girl, Popo Chan, will roll onto her back to play with her foot toys, too. :D I wish I could get a picture, but as soon as the “camera” [/size](actually, it is still my computer’s built in webcam. . . I can’t wait for Christmas!!!!!!) [size:11pt]comes out, she decides it is time to stop! :crazy: Uuuugh! [/size][/b] :cry:


Peace & Happiness

I had to pry myself from the keets this evening too. I was also just there for crickets lol. I found this really pretty mostly yellow keet, but his back looked like he had been splatter painted green and blue. He was BEAUTIFUL! thankfully i know i don't have space for three in my cage and i can't affort to buy a new cage frown.

Wow, they sound so sweet. Imagine the things that you could teach the yellow one!! It's so hard to walk out and leave them, I've completely avoided pet shops for ages!
