Thank you. Gosh, it still took me forever to post, still!!! Aaaaah!!! Thank you for the warm welcome back!
I will check out the Herb Salad. It looks lovely! Nice and green!
Echo loves her carrots, peas, and corn! AND, occasionally, almonds as a treat! Hmmm...I'm wondering if I should get a little bag of the herb salad before I go all haywire on ordering it. I'm eyeing the 5lb bucket, but I don't even know if Echo will like it! Starting small is good... I took Echo completely off the dyed rainbow colored Zupreem and put her on the nutrient organic non-dyed pellets Zupreen and she gets veggies every day and nutty treats every other! The nuts are considered CANDY and if she could eat her almonds every day and her peanuts she would! Little brat!
Wow...chamomile tea...that's interesting! :0 I love teas! Is there any type of chamomile that's not good? Obviously no caffinated stuff! (I'll do some research.)
Illusive, I missed you!
And your tough love! I got the vest from avianfashions.com ... they are very good and dedicate their business souly to flightsuits and feather protectors! When you order a vest or a flightsuit, they have exact measurements that you can pick from in a little chart. Like, for goffin's, I think the size is called...Wide...? It took Echo quite a while to get used to it. A long process...patience!!! Ha! When you get your vest in the mail, they even send you a little instruction sheet on how to introduce it to your bird! No forcefullness!!! Echo completely freaked when I first showed it to her. Her reaction consisted of her throwing a fit, as if she were saying, "My gawd, how dare you bring that alien in here and show it to me!!!" It took a few weeks before I was finally able to slip it over her head (not forcefully), only to take it right back off, because she freaked! Another few weeks followed before she was like, "Oh...okay...it's not so bad...I guess...I guess I could like it...for now...and throw a fit later."
SHE'S SUCH A BRAT! BUT, ALAS, I LOVE HER TO DEATH!!! I won't give up on her! Ever! She's too special to let go.
Oh, but Illusive! Hahn's Macaws are so cute!
I hear they are the smallest of the Macaws and the least distructive, but perhaps you have some insight for me? Hahn's Macaws are slightly smaller than Goffin's...I was wondering if Echo would be able to make a friend...I have a full-time job now and go to school full-time. I spend as much time with her as I can and when I am not home, my fiance' sits with her, but he is busy, too. I do love my baby bird...all I want is for her to be happy.
My avian vet has been extremely...EXTREMELY helpful with Echo! And she's been so patient with us and has helped me to feel better about Echo's picking problem...she's discussed options with me and given me helpful advice...I cannot thank her enough!
Eeeee!~I'm getting all emotional now...haha!
