Being weighed is fun!

Being weighed is fun!
Coco, a Congo African Grey, is being taught to stand on a gram scale until it registers her weight. This "trick" enables stressless weight management of the bird. (view small | med | large | orig)

Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Moe and Curly.

Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Moe and Curly.
Moe & Curly are the boys, and Eenie, Meenie and Miny are the girls. They have grown up as a flock-- which is to say they are not trained to be hand-oriented (nor, by the way, do they know their names!). They are so busy amongst themselves & keep themselves so happily occupied that their foster mom enjoys them as a group rather than as individuals per se. When she puts a chewable object into their cage, they plow through it faster than you can say, "Gesundheit!" - it's like a swarm of piranhas. They're so full of life! They are constantly in motion & making comments about things-- you can expect a level of babble and song and chirping and squawking that someone visiting their home referred to them as "the Greek chorus." They're a joy--though if you are looking for a quiet household or a shoulder companion, this bunch is not for you. (view small | med | large | orig)
