Re: possibly laying an egg?

yay for no follicles too!!!

it was the second time I saw her sedated, but first time for my mum... huge shock...

I asked again and the general-anesthesia isn't used on birds at all, not even on the bigger ones, so it really does take pressure off of the whole thing he didn't sedate her for the x-ray today in case something were wrong so you can see his fingers on the x-ray too haha... we hate towels now... grey towels especially...

I'd need to look up Dr. K online (youtube too maybe) as we don't really get that many foreign television, well I do know we don't have those programs with our TV provider, but I will deffinitelly look it up

she has been hormonal this past week, screaming a lot more and being nippy when you try to preven her from going under your shirt, with all that has happened today she just wants to cuddle and get into my shirt a lot more, but that's understandable with all the torture she was put through today hehe :P hopefully this stops in a day or two as it's really a bit annoying, she keeps sticking her toung into my ear and prenning me all over the place too I'm just happy it went so well and hopefull that it will go well from here on too and that the implants really do their work like intended...

now that this is resolved, we need to hardcore train my mum a bit more...

Re: possibly laying an egg?

Very cute!

*just be careful about where you are touching*
I firmly believe head and neck are really the only safe areas aside from super quick contact elsewhere.

Re: possibly laying an egg?

we are very careful only to touch the head and a bit down the neck she was sitting on my finger and started to lean back to get like this against my shirt, I had my hand only as near so she could have her feet on them, wasn't touching the feathers, one leg went up and she was fast asleep... I normally don't let her do it now at all, but today I made a small example, it's her 7th 'birthday' we celebrate her birthday on the day I brought her home cause I never learned her actual hatch day apart from 'some time early december)

Re: possibly laying an egg?

short update:

she's on the Suprelorin implants a whole week now... I haven't seen her so hyperactive in months it seems like her behaviour is more and more hyperactive, loud, demanding every day... she can't sit still for a second, demands our whole attention... but luckilly no butt-rubbing or biting or aggression, though she does want to hide in my shirt or at least lean against my arm when not busy flying around and making me chase her all around the place...

she healed amazingly and normally, that means more energy, but it's also the implants making her go a bit into overdrive, I think... it should get better after next week... I can't wait

Re: possibly laying an egg?

here we go, second day of moodswings... yeah, I know most parrots are like this on a normal basis, and this one is a hyperactive fluffball too, but it is just different to how she normally behaved... I can't explain well, sorry...

it's a circle of:
- omg cuddle me!
- ugh don't touch me
- sleep
- omg what is this, omg what is that
- FOOD!!!
- AAA DANGER *screams head off*
- cuddle time

it's much more instantaneously and shanges in a second from angry screaming to cuddle bug and hungry liek she didn't eat for a month
and she preens a lot more than she normally does, she's molting still too...

I have no idea if anyone is still following this, it probably just sounds silly now, some might think this looks like a normal parrot or whatever, but I just wasted to keep updating with things I think are weird for my fluffball... it might actually help someone some day haha she's a weird bird as is, this is making her waaay weirder... I never thought it was possible... well I never thought any of this was possible, so yeah...

Re: possibly laying an egg?

Definitely keep updating! When I first got Cairo, having read through the history found in the forum was incredibly helpful. Even seemingly normal things helped to give me an understanding of what is a good baseline normal range and what is abnormal. Like molts - I was totally clueless on how long, what they look like, what changes to expect, etc.

So please keep updating! It'll always be helpful to someone.

Re: possibly laying an egg?

thanks none of the sites in my language has ANY information about anything regarding parrots (apart from the basic - parrot is from africa, it eats xy, lives 15-30years or similar), they only sell stuff for budgies, only 2 avian vets in the whole country (a university vet program too but nooen really knows if they are usefull for birds really), it's only gotten better in the last few years that people actually take parrots to the vet, yet you still get weird looks for doing it... cats and dogs get all the stuff, vets, attention though... without this forum and all the info I've read and people I've talked to or that gave me advice my Sunny probably would have been dead or in a bad condition, also I was lucky to find that one of two vets that knows his stuff

there are a few parrot groups on Facebook that I thought were great before, but now those same people seem a bit weird and I see stuff I never noticed before cause I didn't have the same experience about it than I have now... snuggle huts in almost every cage, you get attacked when you say it's bag and to get rid of it just one thing I noticed most... how just one day in your life can change your viewpoint on something completelly... would anyone have told me this last year I would have laughed and thought they were crazy...

I've read half of google on those implants and I found almost no info what happens in the first week or two after getting them implanted... all threads are updated with info that is like months or even a whole year after getting the implants and when you panic the info ''oh it works well, got it done 7 months ago'' sadly doesn't help that much... very useful information, it works, my bied will be ok (probably), people like it,... but... from experience with my knee surgery: my knee before injury, my knee with injury, my knee first 3 weeks after surgery and my knee after xy years are so completelly different things you would never believe it if you didn't go through something like it yourself... so naturally: bird before surgery, bird after surgery, bird before implant, bird first week after implant, bird after a year... you get the idea... add a family that is 'meh' about it and stamps you off as paranoid when you can clearly see the the poor thing is acting different... I just get a bit too obsessed with how what who where why when and every and any smallest detail about a thing, down to ''how many dust particles od calcium do I give''

Re: possibly laying an egg?

I love seeing Sunny updates. And I think it’s useful information for others. I follow this because I think Sunny is adorable , and I also have 4 female birds so it’s helpful to know what egg binding might look like and what effects implants might have. Hope you keep sharing!

Re: possibly laying an egg?

ooooh thank you

well right now she is beyond hyperactive, I need to watch where she flies from/to cause she is navigating like a drunk, almost landed in my face twice... lands on me, climbs on my head and leans down so she hangs on my hair in front of my face demanding kisses.... then yells at me when I try to get her off or maybe cause she didn't get tho 300 kisses she wanted... half way through typing this she waddled to my shoulder, leaned her beak on my ear and I am deaf now... darn she can yell
