According to the vet, she is of a good weight, in good feather, and has no easily observable physical problems.

She is starting to relax much more. No more biting and lunging! I was able to get her to step up on a perch, and I took her out of her cage. She sat with me for 10 minutes, preening and eating sunflower seeds from my hand. She was very relaxed. I can tell that someone once loved her and spent time with her, because I think this is very fast timing.

She is making great progress. Yay!

That does sound really good! Perhaps she is friendly like they said, only when she is super scared is she agressive! Sun. seeds are like millet for them smile They just love love the seeds lol.
I am sorry but i cannot find the old thread is the DH allergies calming down? Or are you getting Daisy ready for a new home? Sorry to bring this up in a new thread




New pics soon smile

Ah, no, don't feel bad. It's okay to talk about the elephant in the living room!

No, dh's allergies are worsening. I am trying to get her more socialized so that she will have an easier time settling in to her new home. And, I just can't resist interacting with any animal, especially birds. To me, they look so forlorn in a cage no matter how nice a cage.

It'll break my heart to see her go, and my kids cry when I talk about it, but I shared with them what caribbean mom said, "Maybe it was God's plan for us to get her out of a bad home and into a nice one, but not his plan for us to keep her." I don't have the wording right, but that was it essentially. It seemed to help them, but we'll all cry when she goes. I try to tell my kids in situations like this that loving and losing (people and pets) is part of the cycle of life and that we must do what we can to make our interactions with people and pets the best we can.

What state do you live in, possibly a forum member would be able to adopt her if needed, there are several of us here who have keets from other members who couldnt keep their keets

I'm so sorry I can't take her Skipperdog seeing how we both live in the same area. But I have no room for her. And I hope the vet can take her.

Did you go to Windcrest? That's where I go.

Wow skipper, that's great news! A good checkup AND starting to relax and see that humans are not so bad after all smile
I think you are doing such an awesome thing,taking her in and preparing her for a forever home.
I do believe it was part of God's plan for you to rescue her and keep her in your care until the right home comes along.
I know it will be soo hard to give her up, but you're doing your part. Kudos to you and your family.
