Moving..

Sponsored Links
...Well the movers have come and gone. Only thing left is some clothes,my computer and the fids. Amy is wide eyed,wondering where the heck is everything,why is there no music,what has happened to my perches and toys BB doesn't seemed bothered,he is on my shoulder whistling is heart out. Amy is sitting on a cabinet that isn't going anywhere and her arms are fluttering a little. Nerves? Anxious??
The kids are out of their houses so I can take them outside and power wash them before moving them to Davids place. I'm stressing big time hoping the move doesn't traumatize them
Sighhhhh

Re: Moving..

Home is where you are! You are almost to the finish line!! Maybe a nice glass of wine this evening as you settle in, or some relaxing beverage of choice. Don't over extend yourself, just focus on what's most important.

Re: Moving..

He Jim, you are doing great.
Just moving is a challenge enough for everyone, and you have the fids to care about as well.


Remember to breathe plze
They will follow the lead of their wonderfull (if slightly oversized and unfortunately wingless) flockmate.
They will have you, their little homes-away-from-the-old-home and a fun new place to explore in a few hours ...


Hang in there big guy!
You can do this.

Re: Moving..

They will be with you, and that’s what will matter the most. They may take a bit to settle - but they’ll take their lead from you. You’ve got this!

Re: Moving..

If you can get excited about the move maybe they will catch some of that excitement at a different location.

Re: Moving..

Well we are ( my brother and I) are 98% done. Only things left are some clothes and my computer,some stuff to throw in the dumpster.I am mentally and physically exhausted! The kids are settled in at David's with sparkling houses that are all set up now. It didn't seem to bother either of them. Of course Amy was all chatty in her carrier in the car as she hung upside down from the door bars BB wasn't too pleased to be put in the carrier as he paced back and forth but he did manage to whistle and jabber on.

As you may recall,Amy just wants to be with BB. I have made numerous posts on how as soon as I turn my back,she scurrys down to the floor and runs those little legs of hers so fast that three minutes later I find her on top of his cage and it really p.m.o.

Now due to the situation,her house and Beebs are right next to each other and I have seen her on her floor as close as she can get to Beebs and her head bobs and rudder flared out and if I get close she lunges at the bars..this is unexceptable!

So I have covered that side of her house with a towel and she can no longer see the little boy...it seems to be working

David bought both of them house covers called "Cozy Covers"..very nicely made,breathable and washable fabric. He said they got a five star rating. Does anyone use them or heard of them? Thoughts please?

Re: Moving..

I have Cozy covers for my cages - love them. My cages are so tall that I have trouble putting them back on if I take them all the way off.....so I just flip them back, roll them up toward the back of the cage and leave them draped at the back covering the back of the cage like a curtain so I can just roll them forward at night (has the added bonus that it protects my wall from food flinging during the day). They wash well - I don’t put mine through the dryer as I don’t know if they would shrink.

Re: Moving..

Moving is always rough physically and oftentimes mentally as well. I hope this morning you feel more rested and less stressed about the big changes and that the birdies settle in well over the next few days. It sounds like both will do just fine.

Re: Moving..

Glad the hard parts are done, Jim. You are definitely the "alpha dog" for blazing a new trail of happiness for Amy and BB. I think they will settle in very nicely!
