Re: Right now Salty is.....

I know what thats like 'Boats. Usually Salty steps up, especially from the floor, with no problems. In the last month or so, he gives the finger/hand a too hard beak hold, not breaking skin, but a lot harder than he usually does.

What's the saying? And this too shall pass!

Re: Right now Salty is.....

SO trick training with a mini Jenga not going so great because Salty CHEATS! He only takes from the top of the tower! Oh he does that with great gusto, try to get him to take from the middle of the pile - nope! I think I will glue the top 3 pieces together so he can't pick them up and he has to go to the second layer. So crafty this little bird!

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Salty's probably wondering why you can't figure out taking pieces from the top makes the most sense. Hahahahaha!

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Poor Salty! it was CRAZY windy last night, I mean really crazy! It sounded like the middle of a hurricane and was even rattling the windows and doors! Salty was so scared, he couldn't concentrate during the night's training session. He would stop in mid-trick and look around warily, even during his favorite tricks. I felt so bad and was reassuring him that everything was OK. We cut it short, and I gave him a few treats as I was holding him.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

I think we may have turned the corner on this year's hormone season. May. Salty and I rough housed for awhile this afternoon, a real fun tussle. I would not have done that 3 weeks ago, I value my fingers too much. On top of that a nice scratching session. Salty didn't want to leave my shoulder, not even for dinner!!!! LOL, he'll probably give me a 3rd nostril tomorrow.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Wait, an Amazon missing out on Dinner? Now that is a fixated Amazon!

Congratulations on your household turning the corner on this years Hormonal Season. Julio is showing signs of slowing down. Thank God, as it has been a long and heavy flow season this year!

Re: Right now Salty is.....

LOL, yeah another way I can tell is all the scabs on my hands have healed and fallen off, and I don't have any fresh ones! When Salty nails me, its not that pointy upper beak that gets me, it's that scythe like lower mandible. That sucker is SHARP! Good to know that Julio is coming down off the "mountain" !

Lest any noobs think that Salty is a blood thirsty Amazon, he's not. Non-hormone season, he is predictable, calm-ish, and will play rough with me without spiraling into overdrive. Hormones really do affect parrots and they have no control over their actions. They react and then look at you like ' WTF was that ??' .

Things are calming down here too hormone wise. Still finding sleeves and rudders from both fid's.
The wind was howling here too Al,rattling the living room windows. I heard Amy squawk a few times around midnight..poor thing prolly was wondering WTH was going on out there.
