Glad you were able to stop it.

Did you ever read my advice on using albums instead of attachments?
Glad to see you back btw!
Yes, I will give it a try with the next pics. The last post I did about Boo's time line, I used the paperclip attachment symbol (which I'd never done) it pretty much did the same thing. Oh well....at least the pics are still there!

Re: Texas Tiels Thread.

OUR SECOND OLDEST MALE COCKATIEL that doesn't get a lot of press! That would be our bird Ziggy. Actually he was our third tiel after Pepper and Kiwi. Ziggy is pretty laid back and use to put up with lots of crap from Kiwi....the older ( Alpha male ) of the entire flock! Poor Ziggy WANTS to be Peppers mate so bad he can't stand it but she wont have him. If he's lucky, there ARE days she will let him preen her! The attached photos are of Ziggy a few days before we even brought him home back on Sept. 20 2017! The other photo was taken of him 10 minutes ago!

Re: Texas Tiels Thread.

I guess keeping with the theme regarding Ziggy, we could think of Pepper (Our first and oldest hen) as Lady Astor! She already thinks she is anyway and in Ziggy's eyes she hangs the moon! Pepper has always been pretty much a standalone bird. She's VERY particular about how she's scratched and if you do it wrong, you WILL be corrected!

Re: Texas Tiels Thread.

TODAY IS WOODY'S BIRTHDAY! Our female pied hen and the mother of our last clutch is two years old today! She is a well behaved bird and will step up even when she doesn't really want too. We never have bed-time problems with her like many others. Happy B-day sweety!

Re: Texas Tiels Thread.

Our youngest sweetheart, Matilda. She was the second to last hatch from Kiwi and Woody's clutch a few months ago. She's coming along just fine and is getting better every day at stepping up.
