Grrrrrrrrr!!

Now this is starting to agro me! AMY!! She is relentless now!! Every five minutes she is trying to get to Baby Birds house! I get her on her perch stick,put her on her roof top..walk away,and five minutes later,where is she? On BB's roof! Get her back on her stick, <which now she fights by laying on her back,and kicking at the stick > , get her back again on her roof...five minutes later..
Geez poor BB! I tell amy to let him be for a few minutes,won'tcha? Let him eat his brekky in peace!

So, I bring BB in here and we watch Max video's,and I look into the living room..there she is, on BB's roof again,this time eating his breakfast! It's not FUNNY anymore!

So NOW what do I do??? Leave the poor girl in her house when I want to let BB out and have some one on one with him? First thing this morning when I was feeding them, I had her swing-out food/water/nummy bowl doors open and the bowls removed,and BB was on his roof awaiting his plate of grub,I put it down and go back to the kitchen for her bowls,and she is climbing out her nummy bowl door to get to him! She sees me and turns around and goes back inside..grrrr!

Re: Grrrrrrrrr!!

Seems that Amy has developed a morning program for her and you. She is just concern that you are not getting enough activities.

Sounds like you will need to practice 'Stay' training with Amy. Best of luck, over-coming a determined Amazon is no easy undertaking.

On the other side, remember it could be much worst. Amy only wants to hangout!

Re: Grrrrrrrrr!!

Why not feed them stuff that's good for both of them and let them flock together? You got BB as a friend for Amy, sounds like she's super happy with your choice. Let em hang out I think...

She just wants to BE by him..no matter. She gets fed first,she gets her treaties..she gets daddy's loveys first..I am super happy she likes BB..and he shows no animosity towards him..but geeez...I don't think I'd want some HUGE green monster by my side every waking minutes lol

Re: Grrrrrrrrr!!

So long as they get along and there are no incidents let it be. My only concern is how do they act (especially Amy) when the honeymoon period is over? Being so much bigger and more powerful than BB a lot of damage would happen if things go south.
