Skittles always knocks me out with his vibrant deep color. Such a cute, beautiful, happy little bird!

Re: Skittles!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you.

Yes, Skittles wants for nothing.

That last pic cracks me up because that's what he does when I get real close, it means he wants a 'wingpit' rub. lol.

I want to take some more at some point. But I have to catch him on an "pro-cam" day. Some days he is 'anti-cam' and will raise holy hell if I try to record him or take his picture. Other times he's very cooperative. Weird.

Re: Skittles!!!!!!!!!!

Oh so that's what he's doing? Wanting a wingpit rub? LOL

Robin lets me do that too. He has a lot of down feathers there and it's so soft. I know it's controversial because it 'can' stimulate some pet birds into sexual frustration and can lead to problems, which is why it's advised not to stroke down the back or under the wings, but for years I've never had any problems doing it with Robin so I take advantage of it .

Re: Skittles!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, he'll actually let me hold his wing between my thumb and fingers and stretch it out. It amazes me how much he trusts me. Which actually is very helpful. It makes the routine exams I give him much easier.

Re: Skittles!!!!!!!!!!

I cleaned Skitty's cage and toys today. So I decided to get some more pics of him on his scratchy perch. I like these ones even better!
