So I don't have a lot to report on the birds but I thought I would share some newer pictures. I finally got a new job which has been rough but the birds seem to be taking it well. Recently brought Lincoln to the vet to get some grooming done, I don't have any pictures currently of the after math of the grooming but it's just a little on the longer side but I will take him in again to get the rest groomed down, he was just getting really stressed so we decided to stop for the day. Apollo has been doing great as always. She's such a good flier now.

First up, Lincoln:




And now Apollo:





(In the last pick she was grooming and stretching out on my hand and her tail got caught on my fingers and I rarely get the chance to take a picture of her tail markings so I took it while I could. I wasn't holding her tail like that)

ugh they all rotated but I have to go into work in a moment so I can't fix them, sorry guys ^^;

Re: image dump

It's so fun seeing birdie pictures! But I have to say those elephant pants are very cool!!
Lincoln feathers are looking good. What's the cause of his chronic beak overgrowth? I know it can be an ekkie thing but I'm not sure why?

Congratulations bin the new job! What is it?

I'm not really sure what's causing it. His bloodwork shows he's healthy and doesn't have any liver problems. It could be a mix of his reluctance to actually chew harder wood so it doesn't maintain itself? Maybe a partially due to poor diet in his past? I don't really know.

the new job is working at an Amazon warehouse. I was getting a bit desperate but it's not as awful as I've heard it could be so I got lucky.


And yes! I love my elephant pants xD

Re: image dump

I truly love your Avian Professional!!!
The number of so-called Parrot Care people that would have simply shaped it all the way back to near normal are too many to count on a stadium filled with hands and feet.
The approach that your Avian Professional is taking will mitigate any chance of a painful upper-beak, which can result in your sweet heart not eating for hours to days. In some really bad cases, it requires hand-feeding to get them past the time their beak is painful.
So, my hat off to your Avian Professional...

Great image dump, Thank you for the Photos.

I must admit I find your pic of this 4-Eyed Sideways Birdie a little startling.

I have found WHO you are working with is at least as important as WHAT your doing, work with good people and almost any job can be pretty cool.
