Hi everyone. I brought home an older umbrella on the 4th of November.
She is at least 30 years old according to prior owners. Thought to be female, but may be male. Already took to avian specialist for the full workup. $400 later I am waiting for the definitive results. I am leaning toward male. Bird has already bonded to me or at least is more comfortable with me. Is unsure of stepson and has bitten both husband’s ears. Oh dear... last bite was through the cartilage and was sneakily done.
Working on 30 years of bad habits is... rough. Have been reading ‘too things on this site and others for several months. Ain’t no amount of reading or talking to ‘too owning acquaintances that can actually prepare you for this. I’m buckling in for one heck of a bumpy ride.
