Green feathers everywhere. Well Bundii has lost her first green feather for this moult. She has. Even losing white fluffy feathers (we call them spiders in this house - cause they look like spiders) for the past couple of weeks but last night so lost one of her green wing feathers. I must admit that I am not looking forward to feather all through the house and having to vacuum every day but I guess it is just part of having a fid.

Although she is going to stay with Grandma next week so maybe I will get out of some of the vacuuming. :D

Oh it's such fun, isn't it? And those wicked little spiders stick to things and won't brush off carpet or clothing: you have to pick them individually. Grrrrr!

I know Trish. I try to tell Bundii to leave them in her cage but she *must* preen whilst outside of the cage. I think she *loves* just watching me clean them all up. It is just like when I read out the stories from Parrot Forums and she looks at me like she is interested and then at the last sec just turns away as though I am boring the hell out of her. The joys of parrots. :rolleyes:

Ha! I will absolutely believe that they love watching us clean up after them!

Mikey I know this feeling. My boss thinks I am crazy for vacuuming daily but it my only way of keeping up - between feathers, seeds, others food, toy parts - it is a never ending cycle. :eek:

And if you *don't* vacuum daily, you get nasty little cockroaches rummaging about in the crevices. We haven't had a mouse yet, but let's see what winter might bring...

OMG, don't remind me of the mice coming in the house....I had to deal with that when I used to live out in the country side. I was getting dog food out of the bag so I grab on the handle of the scoop without even looking in the bag and here's two mice sitting on the scoop looking at me when I lift it out of the bag....#$&&$%&#% I screamed and the mice flee and I threw back the scoop then IF I remember right my Sasha (RIP) husky got them, she was a mouser....

ROTFL! Not laughin' at you, Mikey - laughin' with you! I can just picture you and two dear little mice eying each other off. :D :D :D

We used to breed mice and so they don't present much of a challenge to me in the wild state - except for when Dark Mouse, the *stinker*, got in and had his evil way with my maiden girls and they all had half-wild babies. We had a mouse plague a few years ago and I remember being woken up by squeaking. I turned on the light and there were about five baby wild mice *playing* in the middle of the kitchen floor! They chased each other around and jumped and did backflips, all the time squeaking like so many giggling little kids. It was gorgeous! I eventually caught them all in my humane trap and moved them to a new address (ie. the drain alongside the paddock). I assume they've all had long lives and many babies by now. I miss our mice. They were the funniest pets I've ever had! :)
