She is such a sweetheart! She opens up more each day. Biggest problem is that she feels she can fly to the ground with no wing feathers. frown I hope she moults out and leaves the new feathers alone. She will be just as gorgeous as Crystal! It was such fun taking the pics with her last night!

I have some pictures I took tonight with Sassy and the flock on the playstand my husband Don built at work. Enjoy!

Oh leigh your new phots are great, look at poor Sassy, she looks happy though! What a diffence between their feathers, hopefully Sassy will turn right in the end, I'm sure being with Crystal will be helpful too. They look lovely playing together. Do they get on well?

They get along fairly well. Sassy ended up driving him off the perch thinking it is hers though. I am hoping Crystal will teach Sassy good preening habits.

Leigh, they're looking great! So wonderful that everyone gets along so well. Sassy's just addorable! I hope she grows her wingfeathers in. It must be heartbreaking seeing her try to fly.

Just wondering--when your birds bicker or fight, what do they do? I've really only seen macaws 'rumble' and know that they get pretty aggressive looking towards eachother, but don't know about the 'toos. Is it normally just chasing eachother? Toe pecking? Do they 'beak' at eachother? Has anyone ever gotten hurt? I'm always so worried about letting Taylor and Zeeba play since I know how they could hurt eachother.

Hey Katy!
Yes they do beak at each other. Sam and Crystal don't get along at all. Sam will chase Crystal trying to catch him and hurt him. For this reason we never leave them out at the same time in the same space. The girls don't seem to care. I think Sam just wants to rule the roost so to speak. He doesn't mind Willie or Sassy. Hey keep Sassy in your prayers. We went through more broken blood feathers tonight. Seems neverending. frown

Leigh,
I loved seeing you with your "girls" on your chest. Your entire flock is beautiful. Sassy is just as beautiful as the others. They are lucky to have a loving mom.
Thanks for the pictures.

Somehow I missed the new pics. They are so cute! They must enjoy looking outside from their play stand.

Not sure if you still read Leigh or if anyone emails her, but I was wondering how she was getting on with Sassy.

Hi Everyone, was on hiatus. Sassy IS doing just wonderfully! She has no more fear of coming out of her cage. As soon as I open it she "launches" onto my cupped together arms and hands. She is "Queen of the Couch." She is still having plucking issues, but we haven't had to pull but two feathers in the last month or so. At one time she actually had 3 feathers on her tail! Of course a week later they were gone. She has a new one already though. We have two new arrivals here in the flock to report also. Ethel is a white and blue budgie. My friend had her and "Fred" for several years. When he died, Ethel was so depressed that Pam asked me if she could join B.J. Well they had issues at first but are good friends now. NO BREEDING, JUST PALS!!!!!!!
We also rescued Maggie i.e. Magnolia. She is a 20 year old moluccan female. I had heard of a woman trying to find her a home, and when I went to see her she was in a cage 24X24X43!!!!!!!!!!
I was horrified! She has a Macaw cage now and is very happy. I would like to bring up something all of the Too parents need to know. Her previous owner did not know the importance of various size perches. Maggie's left foot is SEVERLY arthritic from standing on the same 2 inch perch for 16 years. 2 of her toes do not work at all. We have several smaller perches in with her now to work her foot and she seems to be getting some mobility in the foot back. She was one of the last wild caught in the States from what I was told. She is tattoed as the vet showed me when I took her for her well exam. She did pass with flying colors though. We have had her about a month now. She and my Willie (female U2) are good buddies. Well, gotta go. Have to get up early.
Nice to be missed!

Leigh

I will call you as soon as things slow down here.

Well, As Jerry was mentioning, success is about to be shared. I have been using "Pluck No More" for about a month and a half. I use it on Sassy, Willie, and Sam. While the new pictures show Sassy with a few broken blood feathers again, if you look closely you can she not only her 3 inch wing feather, but also a tail feather and several wing feathers trying hard to survive Sassy biting on them. Willie now has almost every chest feather back, if you go to the last few pictures you can see just how naked she had been. Sam is also improved. He has many feathers back, but not all yet. I can't say enough about how glad I am to have found it! Also meet our budgies, B.J. and Ethel. Rumour our Tiel, Maggie the Mollucan and Crystal our other LSC2. Darrell's batteries were going on the camera so after I get new ones I will not only get better pictures, but also pics of Mia our new Quaker. My girl-friend moved to Kentucky where they are illegal and asked us if we would take her. She is 3 years old and SOOOOOOOOOO sweet. She will lay on her back on your hand to be stroked on her belly! It is so cute! Hopefully tomorrow I will get them online. Enjoy!

How are you using the Pluck No More? What I'm asking is, are you following the instructions or are you doing a little more/less than they suggest and how? I am glad you have found something that helps. Please share with us your way of using this product.

Hi Scout and All!
What I do is follow the actual directions of half a capful for Willie and Sam, and I use a bit more for Sassy as she is in such bad shape. I just add it to their drinking water in their normal dishes. I don't know exactly how it works, all I do know is that it does! I am posting a few more pictures this evening. Check out Willie and Sam's improvement! I am very pleased with the results! smile
