I'm sorry you've both had to go through so much. I couldn't be happier that she's off the c-pap. How are the sugar issues at this point? I'm keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers!

Aviary Life

I know this thread is currently lacking in birds but breeding season is here so don’t worry! They are coming!

I’m home, I missed my son more than I can even describe.

Clara is off the CPAP but back on a nasal cannula and needs to slow her breathing and use her whole lungs rather than breathing fast and shallow.

Her sugars are improving! Her D20 drip had been decreased from 14 to 8, but got bumped back up to 9. We will see if she has been lowered at all when I get to the hospital this morning. Once she is weaned off of that the central line can come out and then we can hold her more than once a day!

Re: Aviary Life

I don’t know if you guys can tell, but her forehead is civeted in dark hairs, and her head hair comes all the way forward to her eyebrows. Her arms and back are covered in hair as well.

You guys, I birthed a werewolf.


Jk they say it’s normal in preemies and would have fallen out in the womb and will fall out soon lol.


My sister is gone and my mom arrives today, I just have one hand feeding baby, a cockatiel chick who got a yes infection in his crop right as the weather changed and it was the worst I have ever dealt with. Thank God it was gone before I went into the hospital but he still has a very SLOW crop no matter what I do and is stunted. One of my AMAZING local friends rushed over to get my whole brooder and feed my babies while I was in the hospital and then my sister took over. I’m BEYOND BLESSED by the support I’ve received!!

Today I should be home most of the day and get time to love my feather babies. I’m so incredibly thankful that my baby sister, aka “steeler of the love of pets” is the one who was here while I was gone. Everyone got love and scritches, not just food and water.

Give me a few days and maybe I’ll be back to more parrot centered posts!

Oh! And Levi, my two year old, can now say “put the birdie on my shoulder?” And yesterday he told Nohea “no! Be gentle!” When she pinched him

If that's the only reason, then how much space is enough space - what are the dimensions of a lounge that would be OK to leave two males together in nine hours per day? I ache to adopt another IRN (not a specific individual, just any of the ones in need) but not if they couldn't both be uncaged while I'm at work.

I can’t believe I missed this! I have had a lot going on lately, PLEASE FORGIVE!

Yes, my IRNs have two things that keep them from fighting:

1) FLIGHT! Have you ever seen a wild flock of Ringnecks or a video of one? They are HUGE and they aren’t killing each other. When an altercation starts, one bird usually just leaves. Clipped birds usually won’t back down as easily simply because it’s not really available as an option.

2) space. My aviary is 350sq feet; 510 in fact if you count the new addition, but that is not open flight space. How much is Enough? That will depend on number of birds and temperament but I’m happy to chat about options and suggestions some of the pre-made options are actually really affordable, and the way I made mine is cheap and easy.

There are very few bonded IRN pairs. Irns are not pair bond birds and often switch mates, and often kill mates. That’s ONE of the reasons why I insist on a free flying summer; I don’t like my girls killing my boys in the confines of the cages. My breeding cages are huge compared to most, but they are still small enough to be dangerous for a boy with a cranky girlfriend.

Re: Aviary Life

I had a great aunt named Clara. Her house always smelled of freshly baked cookies and she was a warm, loving presence.

Re: Aviary Life

I'm so happy to see that Clara is getting better with each day. Please keep up the updates, as we're all concerned for our newest - and tiniest - addition. (Well, tiniest human, anyway. Lol)

Oh, and let me just say that I am in awe of your two year old already having the presence of mind to remain calm and tell Nohea to "Be gentle" when she pinched him. That's one heck of a feat, and says as much about him as it does about how you've raised him. Most impressive.
