Bella and Dexter have been showing much more interest in one another.
Here's some of their interactions as of late...
Bella does more than 99% of the talking

"C'mon then"
*kiss sounds*
"Hello Dexter"
"C'mon then"
"Come here"
"Bella... come here"
"Are you a good girl?"
"Beak"
"Beak"
"Are you a good girl?"
"Beak"
"C'mon Bella"
"Y'a good girl?

"Y'a good girl?
"Giz a kiss"
*kiss sounds*
"Giz a kiss"
"Tickle tickle"
"Hello Bella"
"You a good girl?"
"Yeas"
"Hello Bella"
"Hello" <-Dexter talking
"Giz a kiss"
"Step up"
"Good girl"
"Good girl"
"Giz a kiss"
"Bella... come here"

*kiss sounds *
"Are you a good girl?"
"Beak"
"Beak"
"Hello Bella"
"Are you a good girl?"
"Beak"
"Are you a good girl?"
"Are you a good girl?"
"Tickle tickle tickle"
"Hello Bella"
"Are you a good girl?"

Re: Flirty Fids - Videos

Oh, what a treat! These videos were great! And hilarious!!! You'd better be careful. You might have eggs on your hands sooner rather than later. She's only half-heartedly rebuffing his attempts at this point. Definitely getting her flirt on while playing hard to get. Lol!

It's lovely to see them getting along. There was a time when they would growl and lunge, seperate playtimes etc. But we've gradually worked on it. I found that having them out in the evening meant they were both rather docile and would perch and rest on the back of the sofa together if the room was dim. But I also think that taking them to the vet at the same time helped them to feel closer. Plus lots of simultaneously fed treats didn't hurt I thought it'd be at least another year before we get Bella-eggs... but she is looking rather interested in Dexter!

Thier voices crack me up! But it's my fault I found that their voices are are clearer if high pitched, if they mimic lower toned voiced they sound like distorted scary robots, so from the beginning I've always spoken to them in a high voice (like mums do with babies) and the resulting sweet voices are the result of my sounding like a wally on a daily basis!

I must confess that I didn't know what bird flirting looked like until they started flirting! They've been preening, chasing, chatting, beaking... When I saw all that it became obvious pretty quickly that the affection was there! Sooooooo Sweet to see (hear)!
