Re: My bird smells

And thats a bad thing?? Could be worse - my dog smells like a combination of car wash towels, trash pail juice and wet dog. Even after a bath. At least Salty smells like Christmas cookies.

Re: My bird smells

LOL! Noodles has been nick-named "dusty pancake" due to her scent! Although she often also smells like spices (curry...general as that term may be)....

Re: My bird smells

Luci and Tink smell like books. Luci smells like old book adhesive, Tink smells like new book adhesive. Iím an avid read, so sniffing them makes me want to buy even more books. My husband would kill me. Not sure we have any more room for that

Re: My bird smells
