Hi Jan, you have three cockatiels and Shah? Is that right? And Shah is the self appointed Lord of the manor?
Harry's motherhood was short lived. She laid her first egg, sang to it, called it pretty pretty bird, took excellent care of it for a day and a half, dropped the second egg from the perch and never gave either of them another glance. She is still very hormonal but she hasn't laid anymore eggs.
My husband is home all week for Christmas and Harry has made everyone miserable for the past three days. Today I was trying to convince my husband there is just one more bird I absolutely must have. Harry must have heard me and thought it was a ridiculous idea. She couldn't have possibly behaved worse. She went to sleep before I rolled her cage out to the sidewalk with a big sign: Cussing, Screeching, Biting, Healthy Bird: FREE TO GOOD HOME!!!
I went to check on her a few minutes ago and she came over to me. I told her she was a good bird and she said, "good bird, good good bird," shaking her head up and down in agreement. She let me tickle her belly to remind me how much progress we've made.
