Well it seems as though hormone season is over in our house!!!! Cassie likes me again. The past week she has been calming down and doesn't seem to love Daddy as much. Today was the first day that she hasn't gone beserk on me and she is playing with her toys again instead of trying to find Daddy. Oh well peace until the fall! Nancy

That's fantastic news Nancy. Echo's has been off the Lupron for going on 4 weeks now. I'm still holding my breath, but so far so good.

Hopefully you will have peace again until fall. But breeding season can be anytime to a captive bird. Sigh....

I hope Echo is able to keep going without the lupron for the summer. I can live with a little hellian for a few months per year but the egg laying scares me to death. So far with Cassie it's been a big one in the Spring and a shorter one in the fall. She's young yet so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a quiet summer! Nancy

I hope Birt follows suit. I hate to admit it, but he hasn't gotten much out of cage time lately. All he wants to do is "love" me and attack our shoes. My husband is his buddy and they've been doing ok. Whenever I'm nearby he just gets wierd. I think he was trying to feed me a few days ago.

Hmmm, maybe hormone season is moving slowing from East coast to West coast, because I still have a couple of little devils. Want to trade for a few weeks wink

Hmm in the last few days Chewy hasn't been yelling nearly as much but I'm sure she is to young to stat feeling hormonal urges she is only 1 give or take a month or two. Her behavior hasn't changed enough to indicate something wrong but she has died down on the screaming in the morning and throughout the day.

It's dying down around here, too, but just yesterday, Isabella started rubbing on her toys on her playgym while watching my son (her favorite) do his homework, sigh... Luckily, we're leaving on a week's vacation on May 31st. I'm hoping that while Isabella is boarded, she'll work the rest of this hormonal stuff out of her system, and we'll come back to a hormone-free home (except for the almost 14-year-old hormonal boy I live with, LOL)!

Not gone here yet, Gideon is still trying to coax me to lay eggs under the sink. Luckily he hasn't been aggressive during this hormone season.

Not here. I have never seen this before... Angel was eating oatmeal with me. No one was petting her or even talking to her while she was eating. Hubby walked into the kitchen and she started shaking and panting. He is rarely at home due to 3 jobs so how would Angel pick HIM as a mate when she hardly sees him?

Lucy laid two more eggs about two weeks ago. The advice I got was to let her have them for about 3 weeks and then take them...I have had Lucy since last June and she is now 16 yo. She has had so many eggs...I think this makes 7 that I wonder if her previous home wasn't a breeder.

Anyway, I hope she doesn't lay anymore for a long time...this is very scary because I worry about her health.

Lucy's Mom, what does your AV say about the egg laying? I worry about her health too.

I have had her there 4 times since we have adopted Lucy but only once was she in an egg laying mode. She said Lucy was really healthy, though.

Our RB2s have also calmed down somehwhat. I had Harry on "Pluck No More" which seemed to calm him down. I wanted to try that before the Lupron route. We go for our well bird exams next week. I hope now that they have calmed down, they won't bite the vet again.

I was breathing a sigh of relief because Charley had calmed down a lot the last few days. That was until this afternoon when I came home from work and let him out. I played with him a while and then he got too excited and started acting out like he has been for the last 3 months. Darn, I was hoping I had my cuddle bug back. I guess it will still be a little while before I can let my guard relax some.
