He's such a delight , and loves his scratchies more than ever, closing his eyes and tilting his head to present the part of his head that he wants scratched. He's back to hopping and running to his favorite trick when we train at nght; he even remembers tricks we haven't done in a long time, like picking the kings out of a deck of cards. So smart! He is starting to sing along with himself when he plays his toy piano, something he started doing un-bidden by me.

So harken to those going thru the onset of puberty - there is a light at the end of the tunnel; like most things parrot, time and patience will prevail.


Iím glad to hear that Salty has gone back to normal, but not al all surprised. You laid the groundwork by developing such a close relationship with him based on mutual trust and respect, you maintained consistent boundaries while giving him the space a teenager needs, and now you reap the rewards of your efforts. You are a shining example to all of us.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Right now Salty is recovering from a full CAV checkup, with blood work and everything. Jim's Amy made me go back and see when the last time Salty got the works as far as wellness checks -Yipes almost 3 years. SO Dr Hofer and her staf did the whole routine on him. Salty wore his harness to and from the CAVs office and was really calm about putting it back on even after the manhandlingto draw blood. The vet and tech were pretty surprised about that. Funny, he had carrots and red prppers for lunch, so his poops were bright red, which worried the vet until I explained. Back at home now , in the teeming water of a BIG t-storm.

Here is a gratuitous Salty pic:

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Salty's the best. I love that bird. He's our little prince. That expression is an innocent parody version of the Joker's "why so serious?"

Re: Right now Salty is.....

YeaH! Salty's blood work and other tests all came back with a nice normal across the board. We didn't really expect anything different but it's been 3 yrs since we had a full wellness checkup. $400 well spent money.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Poor Geri, i went to a jam session Sunday night with my son, so Geri was supposed to do Salty's trainin session with him (8:45PM sharp every night). Salty was not having any of it, and started calling "Daaaaddy" She felt so bad, because he will usually do a few tricks with her. Plus he wouldn't come down from his roosting spot at the top of his play chain, up by the ceiling. I told her not to worry, he's not going anywhere once he roosts. He was still there , sleeping, when we got home just part midnight, when I retreived him and put him to bed in his cage.

Amazons can be just as stubborn as any other species of parrot.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Stubborn is right! Last night I was all set to video a training session, and do every single trick Salty knows, since we often only do some , just to keep it fresh for him, but he was not having it. If he doesn't want to do a certain trick, I let him refuse it, and move on. Most nights he runs thru them no sweat, but the camera freaks him a bit. He is so observant! I'm gonna place it in its spot every night now, so he gets used to it.
