And so it starts.........

the transition from being baby, sweet and loving, to just before grown up, stroppy and grumpy. Yep Kito has worked out that he can bite and it does hurt people. Now if HE doesn't want to do something he bites. He's had more time outs today than Bucc has had in his life time. Blimey I thought Bucc was stressy at this age but he was a saint compared to Kito.

Bucc would stay on his playstand until he was told he could move, Kito has other ideas so he has to go in his cage, I also have to hide the latch up as Bucc will let him out as soon as I move away from the cage. Kito hasn't got the idea that I am head of the flock and not HIM, but he'll learn one day (maybe)

So Tex, if you want a Grey, who has just realised he can bite (hard), poop when ever or where ever he wants and then fly off just so he doesn't get his time out, then theres one here for ya. Just smuggle him in I'm sure Christy won't mind, being as she's such a wonderful gal,

The difference between these two is amazing, Bucc was so happy to please and Kito well he just don't give a damn and thinks he can get away with anything as long as he gives me the "look of love".

They'd work as well, I was thinking more along the lines of a muzzle.

He's in again now, scratching the bottom of the cage like a chicken.

Oven mitts work wonders, it's why I still have any fingers left But since he can fly, you might need a lasso as well!

And if Tex takes Kito, he has to take Iggy too, it just wouldn't be fair otherwise.

Yep thinks thats very fair.

Hey never thought of a lasso, great idea.

At the moment he's biting isn't too bad, as I'm used to Bucc so I can stand it, and that gets him really stressy he will then start to scream in anger. But when he bites the kids, they really feel it and pull away, even tho' I tell em not too.

Yeah, its amazing isn't it. Tonight he is being a real sweetheart. A real cuddle bunny. But then he always is in the evening when he gets his bedtime cuddle.

Re: And so it starts.........

nice try Peta. Think about how Bucc would feel if Kito came to our house. And Hamlet has just gotten over having Mac in the house. We have to give it time before we get another one. Kito would miss you too. Good luck with those bites and temper. Hamlet is starting to give a little attitude when he doesn't feel like stepping up. Ok, I have to stop typing now. They have both decided its time for mommy's manicure!
