The previous owner was good to him but for some reason they just didn't click...it was the owner before the previous one that called Rodney "money in his pocket" he certainly has been round the block a bit, for he had a few owners like the "money in the pocket" one, I think, before arriving at the owner Rodney had before me .


I’m so glad he’s finally found his last home!

Just a little LOL here..one day,YEARS ago,my family had a birthday party for mom,I was at work unfortunately and mom took Amy outside to join everyone ( her BD was late June) My brother David smokes a pipe (a corn-cob type). Well according to the story, Amy was on the grass walking about and David laid his pipe on the ground for whatever reason. Amy PICKED UP the pipe,by the stem (proper way if you were going to smoke it) and started to run away with it!! Mom said if they had recorded it,Amy would have won $10k for "America's Funniest Video's" lol

Re: Just Rodney and Me Hanging Out

What a lovely boy Rodney seems to be! It’s always amazing what good judges of character birds can be and how quickly they can transform when they feel loved and safe.

P.S. Kiwi, my BFA, also liked your singing and got very ruffled. I don’t sing to him because my singing voice is like nails on a chalkboard and he’d probably hide in terror lol. So nice of you to sing to Rodney though

You should sing to him, they really do love it when we sing to them especially if you sing their name in the song too...never worry about the voice or your singing ability, for to your parrot you will always sound better than any of the stars or celebrities you know ...give it a go...I learned, part ways into taming Mr Biggles, that singing was the key to the door of his heart, so I started early with Rodney ...They really do love it ...I bet when you sing to Kiwi you will see those feathers ruffle up with glee too

Re: Just Rodney and Me Hanging Out

Well the store was out of Parrot toys...it seems I bought all their Amazon size Parrot toys last week, hee hee, so today I had to go instead to the doggy aisle to see if I could bring my boy home something nice from town...Rodney loves toys so it had to be a toy.
Before I had it hanging properly in his cage he was grabbing it and beaking it and footing it with his toes...he really doesn't care that the toy was meant for a dog...or who knows, maybe he does, and he is showing the dogs his new toy saying, "hey doggies, look what I got "

Re: Just Rodney and Me Hanging Out

I wish Amy would play more often with his toys The only time he does is if he is excited about something,like being on BB's roof,or if I'm trying to get him on his perch stick while he is on his playtop and he rolls around on his back, grabbing at whatever toy is close to him and just being goofy.
Rodney is very lucky to have you!


Jim

Re: Just Rodney and Me Hanging Out

Jim, you have no clue what bad singing is. My mom was so horrible the nuns made her silently mouth the words to ?nun songs? I think it was some mandatory chorus thingy. Anyhow, my mom’s voice was that of an angels compared to mine. I don’t need nice words or reassurance because, yes...it’s truly that bad. But to SassyByrd it sounds wonderful. So I shut all my windows (to spare anyone outside) and let go. And the bird loves it. I’m trying to teach her “Hey good lookin, what you got cookin” for months now. Oh, and then hubby played that “Lollipop” song from the 1950s and she picked that up after the second chorus! Go figure!
